You may be wondering just what it is that has made songs like Don't Stop Believin and Faithfully relevant even today. Well I think the answer to that is that they speak to something we ALL have regardless of your age or place in life, the soul. Journey doesn't write about politics or drugs or any other controversial subject, instead of trying to garner respect by talking about the worlds problems they let their brilliantly crafted music speak to you. I dare you not to feel the the sense of pain and angst conveyed by Separate Ways or to feel lifted up and inspired by Only The Young, or have your heart warmed by the beautiful and emotional Open Arms. Steve Perry, Neal Schon, and Jonathan Cain are in my opinion great songwriters not because they remind us of things we know about, but because they make us feel things we weren't feeling before and that's a better indicator of good songwriting then copying down the late night news.
And what is there to say about the band members themselves? Neal Schon is hands down one of the most underrated and proficient guitarists alive. The keyboard wizard Jonathan Cain can create some of the most beautiful and unforgettable piano melodies in the history of music. And who can forget the voice behind it all? Steve Perry has got to be one of the greatest singers of all time, signing every song with such heartfelt passion that you would think each one was an expression of his own feelings. And there are many more talented musicians that make their contribution to the music presented here, such as longtime bassist Ross Valory and the bands definitive drummer Steve Smith.
Rather you are a Journey fan, or even just a fan of good music in general you should most certainly get this Greatest Hits collection from one of the greatest bands of all time. The music contained here is timeless and I have no doubt that if some of these were released today, they would be just as popular, if not more so, then they were when they first hit the air. Don't believe me? get this CD and you won't stop believin the same thing.
Included on this album are hits from Journey's albums with lead singer Steve Perry only, not the new guy they've had the last few years. Journey without Steve, no thanks. Only a handful of songs from Steve's first few albums with Journey (Infinity, Evolution, and Departure) are featured including "Lights," "Wheel in the Sky," "Lovin Touchin Squeezin," and "Any Way You Want It." Most of the songs on this album are from Journey's most successful years with Steve during 1981-83 from the albums Escape, Frontiers, and various soundtrack contributions. Some of these songs include "Who's Cryin Now," "Open Arms," "Don't Stop," "Faithfully," "Send Her My Love," and "Separate Ways." In 1996, after a long hiatus and band member differences, they reunited briefly with Steve to record the album Trial By Fire and I love that the song "When You Love a Woman" from that album was included here. Sadly, that was Steve's last album with Journey due to him being fired after band displeasure over him not being able to tour because of a needed hip surgery.
If you are a Journey fan during the Steve Perry era, this is an awesome collection of their best work on one album!
