"Don't Stop Believin' it, it's a great journey."

This album is a total classic. Whether you were born before, during or after the 80s, this album will make you relive the 80s in a truly feel good way. Journey have always been a favourite band of mine, but it was this album that made me realise just how great they are. The best songs of their ongoing career. Each individual song has a melody that will captivate your ears and carry you off into the 80s and make you feel like you are actually watching the music forming in front of you. Listening to the vocals of Steve Perry, you feel like you can empathise with him by the time you reach the end of the double album. Each track will make you feel at least one emotion and it each emotion feels so strong. The songs i think that capture the imagination and are strongest musically & lyrically are:
1. Still They Ride
2. When You Love A Woman
3. Lights
4. I'll Be Alright Without You
5. Faithfully
Whenever i listen to each of these songs i can instantly correspond lyrics to memories in my life. Each song sends shivers up my spine with Steve Perry's faultless vocals and the harmonising of the backing vocalists.
They are some weak points on this album... unfortunately, the live track - 'Line Of Fire' is quite distracting as throughout the song is the constant buzzing of a crowd in the background. A few of the tracks feel like they are a repeat of other tracks. This could, in a lot of cases, lead to boredom with the album but fortunately for Journey (and for anyone who listens to this album) problems of this kind are few and far between, this double album takes you on a rocking roller coaster that comes direct from the 80s and straight into your ears. An all round great album. i'm extremely glad i own it.

    Hello Steph, welcome to Ciao - a good review, I think music must be one of the most difficult things to write about as it's such a personal thing, you could have put more details in this review, I would suggest having a read around other music reviews to see the type of things that have earned other pepople higher ratings - :o) Jo
