About this album

New Jersey is Bon Jovi’s fourth album, released on September 13, 1988. Approximate sales were in excess of 7 million copies in the United States and over 18 million copies worldwide. The album is the band’s third highest selling album worldwide, and their second highest selling album in the United States.

New Jersey was an immediate success, debuting at #1 in the United States and across the world. Additionally, it spawned two #1 singles, “Bad Medicine” and the ballad “I’ll Be There for You”.

New Jersey holds the record for the rock album to spawn the most Top 10 singles, with five singles charting on the Top 10 of the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. No other hard rock album has since equaled or broken this feat.

New Jersey was supported by the massive New Jersey Syndicate Tour, which ran from 1988 to 1990.

    I hate first two tracks "Lay your hands on me" and "Bad medicine" ! I don't understand why these songs appear on every best of.

    This album would be their best with the filler tracks like "Ride Cowboy Ride" and "Love for Sale" removed.

    1988, album, pretty crappy overall after the greatness of Slippery When Wet.

    This is a great (Hard) Rock album, completely blows the previous one out of the water. That one had perhaps 4 fabulous songs, but the rest wasn't that great. This album shows a band that had grown into a serious band with lyrics that even mattered. Mix between Hard Rock and Bruce Springsteen... [2]

    Slippery When Wet is a bit better, but this one comes close.

    I think this is the best BJ album overall. "Slippery When Wet" had 3 epic songs, but the rest wasn't that great.

    Buyed a couple hours back. But I think it's strange that there are this less comments on a Bon Jovi Album. Bon Jovi is very famous but only 2 or 3 cd's in the shop. Nobody buys BJ?
