Yeah, SWW could maybe be the better choice. Tim, I know KTF sold many records, but it doesn't have the fame or acclaim that SWW and NJ have, hell, Bon Jovi even lost some fans there because KTF was a clear change in direction.
*Couch* Doesn't have fame or acclaim? Definitely not true, critics loved the album and it's got some of their biggest hits of their career.
And Bon Jovi earned MANY new fans with their new direction, "Bed of Roses" made girls crazy just like he had did earlier. Also, many people found Bon Jovi because they were more standard rock and weren't "untrendy fluffy-glamheads". They easily filled stadiums and the world tour was HUGE!
I know Slippery has "Livin' on a Prayer", "Wanted Dead or Alive" and "You Give Love a Bad Name" but this should also count singing abilities: Jon's singing technique and high notes have improved A LOT in Keep the Faith and he showcases much better constinency singing them live too. Also, his low register has seriously improved in the album and he showcases it in some of the songs. That moment Jon divorced from the reputation of 'fluffy-glamhead' and became a powerful, true rock singer!
Really, Keep the Faith has great amount of popularity to make into the list, I'll fight about it 'til the end!
