I love Journey ....I have been a huge Steve Perry fan ever since I first heard Anyway You Want It. That still remains my all time fave song of theirs .... and if forced to choose I would pick Departure as my favourite album too. Some of teh albums that followed have been awesome bits of work ...notably Escape and Raised On Radio ... but there is a feel and a freshness to Departure that I like. Walks Like A Lady is a great song as is Precious Time which moves from soulful harmonica, the swirling guitar to thumping rock in 3 easy minutes .... great song. Other notable tracks include Im Cryin', Stay Awhile and Where Were You.
Journey have endured the decades and re-discovered themselves with Arnel Pineda at the mic, but this was my first and still my favourite time with a fabulous band.
