Image of Journey


by William Ruhlmann

During their initial 14 years of existence (1973-1987), Journey altered their musical approach and their personnel extensively while becoming a top touring and recording band. The only constant factor was guitarist Neal Schon (born February 27, 1954), a music prodigy who had been a member of Santana in 1971-1972. The original unit, which was named in a contest on ...

Product Description

The centrepiece of the Paul-is-dead conspiracy theory was that McCartney had died in 1966 and been replaced by a sound-alike augmented with plastic surgery. Journey are hardly the Beatles, and Arrival, the zillion-selling band's first studio album in nearly five years, puts a fitting twist on the story by hiding its Steve Perry doppelganger in plain sight. New lead singer Steve Augeri has not only the voice, but all its inflections--notably Perry's trademark "wo-oh-oh" Sam Cooke homage--down pat. Getting it down pat is what this collection is all about; the opening "Higher Place" thumps with a rock! melodrama so familiar it should be titled "Separate Ways Part 2", while the power ballads that follow recall the pre-Bon Jovi days when Journey ruled as a kind of school disco Air Supply. Arrival is one of those records you already know you love or hate before you hear it, but even fans might feel a lack of heat compared to the Perry-era outfit's Greatest Hits. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Album with Steve Augri on vocals 27 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
Boy! this is a good cd, I hold my hands up and say "This is the best Journey cd" if you love melodic rock then get this cd its a masterpiece, I truly feel sorry for people who havent heard the song 'All The Way' and 'Higher Place' rocks like anything, they should be a hits everywhere, the music busness is in a truly sorry state if a cd of this quality can go un-noted, and the record company drop them, absolute madness. ceck out Augery's previous band 'Tall Stories' to.

As a lifelong Journey and Steve Perry fan I was genuinely surprised at the quality of this record. New singer Steve Augeri has been practising those Steve Perry impressions and delivers many memorable moments on this great album. Opener "Higher Place" is as good a song as you will ever hear from any band, a great hook, vocals to-die-for and some sublime guitar from the criminally underated Neal Schon. This guy can really play and on the next song "All the way" with it's classic Journey hooklines and lyrics Schon again plays a wonderful solo. "All the things" for me is the standout track on the album Schon's searing fretwork and Augeri's brilliant vocals make this a track to remember. Throughout the album though Jonathan Cain's influence is clear for all to hear, this man is a songwriting genius and his piano and keyboard skills are second-to-none. I really thought that this type of music was dead and gone with so many of today's bands writing far less melodic, (but nevertheless good!!) tunes. The album never really lets up with quality throughout. If you buy one album this year buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return Journey is better 30 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you're reading this then you've no doubt read the number of 5-star reviews above. I've been a Journey fan ever since, at the age of 14 in 1987, I was seduced by the heart-rending chords of Open Arms, & then spent the next 3 weeks desperately trying to find out who sang it.
Arrival is overdue but does not disappoint. To be honest, I prefer Perry as a vocalist; he has a unique talent & whilst there are a few sound-a-likes, I think we've already heard the best. Augeri, however, is a quality replacement. Depending upon the song being sung, he has this ability to sound uncannily like Perry, or like himself. Either way, he sounds Journey.
His vocals perfectly complement the immaculate musicianship of Schon, Cain & co. The tracks are undeniably Journey & you'll no doubt recognise flavours from the past. There are sound-a-likes of Separate Ways, Who's Cryin' Now & others, but these are new songs in their own right & Journey fans will love them.
Despite being a great admirer of both Cain & Schon's solo stuff (if you ain't heard One & Only, Send Me An Angel or From Wings of Love, I suggest you catch a snippit of them from this site) I was concerned that the talents of these great musicians would no longer have a vocal form. Perry may be gone, but believe me, you won't miss him.
Augeri's the man. The Journey continues. 5-stars & no contest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Journey's New Arrival Is Becoming Addictive 17 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I saw Q magazine give this 1-star, I thought twice about getting it, particularly with Steve Perry's departure. Boy, am I pleased I thought twice and then took the plunge! This is quite clearly drive time/AOR rock music and, if that is your thing, it is a very good example of that genre.
This is a very consistent album for all of its 70 minutes. Whilst I can't say there is a standout track, there ain't no donkies either. It is full of strong melodies, whether the style is driving rock or power ballad. Steve Augeri's vocal style is less histrionic than Steve Perry's which makes the slow romantic stuff sound less cloying and slushy and, in general, there is a natural easy balance between voice and instruments. Neither one is fighting for supremacy.
It is really very good and I find it is fast becoming addictive. It stands comparison with Escape, Raised on Radio and Trial By Fire and I'm actually beginning to wonder whether it is better than any of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Journey Album Ever ! 8 Aug 2001
Format:Audio CD
Having been a long term Journey fan I was sceptical of the new lead singer. After just one listen to the album this scepticism was blown to pieces.Fantastic songwriting emerges on the first track where Steve Augeri's excellent voice (reminiscint of Steve Perry but sublety different)hooks you straight away. 'Signs of Life' and my personal favourite 'Loved by You' show an excellent vocal range and compassion. 'All the Things' and 'To be Alive Again' show Neil Schon to still be an excellent guitarist and Jonathan Caine's keyboards interlace all the tracks. Pure heaven for any Journey fan !!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy, powerful, emotional, high energy rock. 8 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
Their first studio album in nearly five years, it's well worth the wait, with all the quality and musicianship that we have come to expect, and equal measure rockers & power ballads, all there in spades.
This is a superb follow up to the awesome (and highly recommended) "Trial by Fire".
And the great news for guitar players is that the contribution from Neal Schon is increased on this album compared to previous releases, with clear influences from his (well worth checking out) solo work coming through.
He's on fire as well. New singer Steve Augeri sounds uncannily like "Steve Perry" but even better, he doesn't have that ability to annoy you by "over acting".
Stand out tracks would have to be the rocker "Higher place" ,and the ballad "Loved by you". Journey have proven themselves the masters of catchy, powerful, emotional, high energy rock. The are songs hear tear rend the heart, soothe the soul and celebrate life itself. And the playing, at all times, is exceptional.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Arrival' -- definitely worth the wait.
For Journey fans, getting use to the sound of someone else filling Steve Perry's shoes will take some adjustment but don't despair -- all is not lost. Read more
