By Victor HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 31 Aug. 2011
Format: Audio CD
After (what in my personal opinion) I consider to be the two worst albums of his career, Behind the Sun and August, Clapton managed to finish the eighties with this excellent album that shows him right back on form.

It's an album of blues/rock in which Clapton sounds really interested and committed to the music, an attitude that was missing from his previous few releases. He mixes some great guitar work with some of his best vocals, at times sweet and yearning, at times gruff and world weary. Mixing up the tempo allows Clapton to show off his full range, and whereas on earlier records he concentrated on either Clapton the guitarist or Clapton the vocalist, here for the first time he finds a great balance between the two and finally shows himself to be the complete article. It was a commercial and critical success, picking up a few awards, and quite rightly so.

Having previously owned this album on cassette and sold it on, I missed it and rebought it on CD. I am now enjoying it more than ever. Some outstanding tracks - Pretending, Bad Love, Hound Dog, No Alibis & Before you Accuse Me. The rest are merely very good!

By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 Jan. 2010
Format: Audio CD
`Journeyman' is one of the albums that started my love affair with all things Clapton and it still has a special place in my heart. It has a great mix of rock and blues on it and shows Clapton when he is playing on all cylinders. The album opener `Pretending' still manages to raise a smile on my face even though I played this album to death on cassette and later on CD and `Bad Love' still sounds as powerful now as when I first heard it. Apparently when Clapton played the original mix of this album to record execs they said it was good but could he go off and write another `Layla', Clapton went away and `Bad Love' was his answer. And what a powerful answer it is, with a strong riff and great lyrics. There is also a duet with Robert Cray called `Old Love' and in my opinion this is one of the best blues tracks Clapton has ever written and I still get goosebumps when the chorus plays. This is the album where Clapton moved away from his synth heavy eighties sound and back towards the blues he is revered for and this album is the perfect blend of the two styles and if you are a fan of either styles of music you will be well catered for here. There isn't a bad track on this album and I can still happily listen to this from start to finish despite having heard it hundreds of times and if you enjoy this then I can only recommend `Unplugged' which was the natural progression from this album and features many of the songs here in an acoustic format. This is required listening and essential for your Clapton collection.

The good news:

This remastered Journeyman SACD now has a balanced EQ. Gone is the boosted treble and the mix sounds more relaxed and open. It has an improved dynamic range and there's an increase in detail with individual instruments sounding clearer with better separation.

The bad news:

Oh dear. Tracks 1 to 3 are quite a mess and track 10 has some different problems of its own.

There are audible clicks, tics & crackles on the first 3 tracks. This noise occurs on both CD and SACD stream at identical points and is present on the 2 copies of this SACD I've received from Amazon. I've since revisited the original 1989 CD release and found these same tracks are clear and free from any suggestion that these new extraneous digital noises were already 'in the mix' somehow.

I must point out at this stage, tracks 4-9, 11-12 are absolutely perfect, free from any audible defect and sound utterly lovely.

Track 10 (Breaking Point) exhibits crackle & tics accompanying the lead guitar in the left channel. Again this is not present on the 1989 CD. Though more significantly, the left and right channels appear to be reversed.

I'm pretty surprised no mainstream review has highlighted this issue so far. I admit, it's not immediately obvious and you'd be forgiven for rattling through tracks 1 - 3 with the volume cranked up high, remembering just how brilliant Journeyman is, without even noticing. Though as soon as you hear the clicks and crackles through the guitar solos in Anything for Your Love & Bad Love, you may want to go back to the beginning and listen again. Then you'll discover the problem is endemic through the first 3 tracks.

It was so good to hear this album which I had played to death on vinyl and after about 7 years of not hearing it I was so pleased that it had lost nothing of it's original appeal. I think the thing that appeals to me most is the production of the album which shows what a fantastic producer Russ Titleman is(just listen to Toto albums and you will see what I mean)and that really makes the difference for as much as I love EC I really miss the Titleman touch when you see him live. This album does stand the test of time and stands up very well against recent albums by Eric.

This is the album that brought me, and many others I suspect, back to listening to Eric, and is a great collection of songs, some of which are outstanding. It was a restart to his career, and should be in anyone's collection of grat EC albums.
