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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Outstanding Album!!! 7 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have owned this album on vinyl for more than 25 years and have decided it was time I owned the CD as well and to put it on my Ipod. It is a stunning collection of songs and I would thoroughly recommend it. Steve Perry's voice is absolutely divine and I particularly love his performance of 'open arms'. A truly outstanding album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Converted! 28 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a heavy rocker, I was a bit dubious about purchasing this album, but did so on the strength of a magazine review. I am glad that I did. This is a truly good album. Whilst not heavy, it still ticks all my boxes. I would recommend it to anyone, heavy rockers or melodic rockers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never mind Glee this is still a great album 3 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
I purchased the original album way back when on vinyl and thought it would be great to have a digitally remastered version on CD. I had forgotten how good this album was. The vinyl hasen't been out of the cupboard of a number of years. "Don't Stop Belevin'" has obviously beeen brought out into the public domain (for all the wrong reasons) but there are some other good songs on this album. It's not all about the first song. Well worth the money if you like American rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic journey 26 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have recently started collecting the re-mastered Journey albums and boy oh boy do they sound good. Listening to them again rolls back the years and in my maturing years I'm appreciating them all over again. The original singer, up to '98, Steve Perry has the most fanstastic voice and writes great songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Journey's Best Album 23 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
Escape was journeys breakthrough album which established journey as a leading band in the 80's It spawned 3 hit singles, and many of the other songs are now deemed as classics of the genre.

The reason for this is the quality of the song writing, as prior to the album, it was slightly hit and miss. However, Journey was at their creative peak here, with a combination of great songs, great musicianship and lyrics that its audience could identify with.

The star of the album has to be Steve Perry - No vocalist has ever quite out-performed him when it comes down to the emotion and raw power conveyed in his voice. Thats not to forget the other musicians, Neal Schon does some impressive guitar work, with a combination of catchy hooks and shredding that balance out his solos. The Keyboards (Johnathan Cain) play a big part in this album as well, but they don't detract from the guitar work at all, and the bass lines are extremely impressive. Musically, this has to be one of journeys most deep albums.

The variety of the material here is impressive as well, with a combination of pop rock songs, upbeat hard rock songs and soulful ballads. Standouts include the timeless Don't Stop Believing, fan favorite Stone In Love, The Prog like Escape, and Open Arms, one of the best power ballads ever recorded. Probably the only song I dislike in the collection is Lay It Down, which has a disappointing chorus. However, the rest of the material is solid.

Timeless songs (as proven with don't stop believing's recent success), great musicianship, and clear production makes this a must buy. If you haven't heard much journey before, you might be better off trying their greatest hits, but if you want to try a studio album, then this is the one to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Re-Issued Journey Classic 14 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
For those who are interested (true fans and collectors): There are some who are debating whether or not this is a re-master of 'Escape' or not. It does sound virtually identical to the 1996 re-master to me, but it has the addition of the 4 bonus tracks. The 3 live tracks can also be found on the 'Live In Houston' CD/DVD.

The bonus 'La Raza Del Sol' (originally released as a B-side) is a slightly different version here to the one in the 'Time3' box set. This version has Neal playing electric guitar throughout his solo, while the alternate version has him playing acoustic for the first part of his solo (I prefer the alternate version with the acoustic 'Latin feel').

Nevertheless, this re-issue of a classic Journey album with a booklet and bonus tracks sounds great, and it's a worthwhile addition to any Journey collection - whether it's a true re-master or not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Journey 20 Dec 2010
By Rick
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Originally bought this album on tape in the early 1980's (showing my age!!!) and had forgotten just how good it is. The addition of the bonus 'live' tracks adds to an already excellent playlist - forget 'Glee' and get the original (and best!!!).
