First re-release of the second full-length studio album by the legendary American Hard Rock/Soft Metal band.
Bon Jovi's sophomore release found the New Jersey band continuing with its engaging mix of Hard Rock dynamics and blatant Pop-Metal overtones, and primed the pump for the coming popular explosion of "Slippery When Wet". Ever since the keyboard call to arms of the breakthrough "Runaway", Bon Jovi had understood that real success lay in a billowing smoke, soft-focus derivation of true Metal, where Journey-style synthesizers and Soft Rock chorus vocals were the name of the game. To that end, "7800° Fahrenheit" tempered its black-leather Rock & Roll with a rudimentary form of the sound that would make Bon Jovi superstars. They puffed out their chests for the groupie-groping, Mötley Crüe-style catcalls of "In and Out of Love" and made sure "King of the Mountain" rumbled with boys-night-out bravado. But they seemed much more comfortable with the twittering ballad "Silent Night" or "Price of Love," where arena-ready riffing met smoke machine keys and vocal trills. There was even "Tokyo Road", a valiant attempt at the epic scope of Springsteen that featured a Japanese-language intro and full-on character development. It was in these moments - when the tenets of Metal tried on the hairstyles of Pop - that "7800° Fahrenheit" burned its brightest; the professional songwriting and increased cash flow of "Slippery When Wet" just made the existing mercury burst.
The album's title was a reference to the supposed melting point of rock. It's marked the final collaboration between Bon Jovi and producer Lance Quinn. It is also the only Bon Jovi album to feature songwriting contributions from four of the band members, with "Secret Dreams" being the only Bon Jovi song to-date for which drummer Tico Torres receives a songwriting credit. Despite being a fan favorite, the band was unsatisfied with the sound of the album and essentially disowned it once they had solidified their status as Major Rock Stars with the albums "Slippery When Wet" and "New Jersey" a few years later. It is the least represented album in their setlists over the course of the career and excluding extremely rare performances of the song "Tokyo Road" in Japan once every few years and "Only Lonely" a few times during The Circle Tour in 2010, nothing from this album has been performed live since the late 1980s.
"7800° Fahrenheit" reached #37 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and was the band's first record to be certified Gold in the US. It remained charted for 85 weeks and was certified Platinum on February 19, 1987. The singles "In and Out of Love" and "Only Lonely" both charted on the Billboard Hot 100.
