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. Also, listen out for Jonathan Cain's beautiful keyboard work on 'Still she cries' where he robs the tempo and breathes life into the music. If you like this, try listening to Cain's excellent solo album (Back to the Innocence) released a year earlier. Neal Schon makes his presence felt on every track, his interplay with Perry on 'Castles Burning' is great and I won't even mention his solo on 'Can't tame the lion'. Everyone writes about that, but why are they surprised? They should know what he's capable of. Check out 'A prayer for peace' on his 'Electric World' album if you want to be seriously impressed. It's also very good to see Smith and Valory back on this album, rhythm sections don't come any better.
I rushed out and bought this one when it was released in 1996 and have been listening to it ever since...not tired of it yet.
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.
'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.
oh and there's a little cod reggae hidden track on the end, if you wait.
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.
