Biography

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 ...

Although SP didn't tour with Journey after the release of this album; his work on it along with Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory and Steve Smith helped make IMO one of Journey's best albums.

'Message of Love' is a cracking opener to the album with a storming chorus and is followed on track 3 by the Grammy nominated 'When You Love A Woman'. Other standout tracks are 'One More' and the 2006 re-masters bonus track 'I Can See It In Your Eyes'.

I got the US import version of the re-master, but it seems this UK release will be exactly the same; so if you like Journey and don't have this album, you should definetly buy it.

Having read some indifferent reviews, I wondered whether this 1996 release would be up to the usual Journey standard - I needn't of worried.
It's Journey doing what they do best. Great rockers such as "Message of Love" & "Don't wake the Lion" to the melodic ballads, "When you love a woman", (a US No.1) and "Easy to Fall" to name two on an album with a greater emphasis than previous releases on ballads.
But please don't let that put you off. With 15 great tracks here it's excellent value for money.
So whether your cruising in the car or relaxing after a long day, this album makes an ideal choice.

How can you give a Journey cd anything less than five stars?, my only criticism is the cd has a few too many ballads which are not up to the standard of the stand out ballad "When You Love A Woman," so the album does drag a little (it's about 78 mins long) but having said that there's some fine tracks, for me they tend to be the more rockier ones like Message Of Love, One More, Castles Burning & Can't Tame The Lion. you also get the previously Japan only track "I Can See It In Your Eyes". Steve Perry (vocals) Last album with Journey.

Trial by Fire is the album that many of us die hard Journey fans thought we would never see. It marks Journey's return to the studio, with their most popular band line up, after a break of a whole decade. Long after we had given up hope, Journey rose from the ashes invigorated with new life and new experiences gained from the band members separately pursuing their own solo careers during the separation. This album is full of new ideas, and whilst being characteristically Journey, it brings a new dimension to the bands repertoire.
If you used to listen to Journey but lost touch with the band during the '86-'96 Journey drought and you still think that Journey's Escape is the best album they ever released, then give this one a spin. For me, this is the best album that has ever been laid down onto plastic by any band. Not only that, it has the best album cover too!
Where do I start? You have 14 tracks on here (actually 15-if you're not too quick to turn it off at the end). To pigeon hole things very crudely, there are four 'rockers' and four 'power ballads' and several others that don't really fit into either category. But beyond that, this album shows the first signs of what I think of as the new Journey 'wall of sound' era where they hit your senses with many layers of sound at once. Despite the change of lead singer, the later albums 'Arrival' and 'Red13' continue this trend and expand upon it. The band matured significantly during the break and the music is altogether more thoughtful these days.
The quality of the musicianship is first rate throughout as you would expect from the line up that brought you 'Escape' and 'Frontiers'. Perry's vocals soar through the whole album and if this is the last album he ever records with Journey then it's a superb finale.

After a long period away from the studio they have returned with a truly awesome easy listening album. It plays well to all age groups and has the ability to become an all time favourite. Many great new songs from the most successful journey line up and just keeps getting better with each time it's played.

When You Love A Woman, It's Just The Rain and Trial By Fire are examples of the kind of fine songwriting rarely seen in a rock band. Steve Perry's voice is better than ever, soulful, soaring, Neal Schon is brilliant (and would be hapy to tell you so, at length, I believe) Ross Valory is masterful on bass,
oh and there's a little cod reggae hidden track on the end, if you wait.

This album has really grown on me over the years, since its initial release in 1996, and I appreciate it more now than I did originally. Although Steve Perry's vocals were evidently not at their best at this point, he still sounds great. As this turned out to be his last ever Journey album, it's a fitting farewell to The Voice that helped take Journey to the top. It was also the last album for drummer Steve Smith.

Overall, it's a mixture of ballads and up-tempo songs, but there is an air of melancholy in some of the music, beautiful as it is, and I think it's one of their most 'spiritual' albums - certainly from the Perry era. It's very reflective and nostalgic. One of the songs (When I Think of You) maybe about Perry's late mother.

The re-mastered release with booklet also contains the bonus track I Can See It In Your Eyes, which is a great solid rock track with a brilliant uplifting solo from Neal. The original bonus track Baby I'm a Leaving You, a fun 'reggae' number, which was hidden as an extension to the final song Trial By Fire, is included as a stand-alone track.

For true fans and collectors: some of these songs (most notably Colors of the Spirit and Can't Tame The Lion) almost sound like they've been re-mixed, so this is definitely a re-master, and not just a re-issue. A worthwhile addition to your Journey collection.
