Great songs make this one the best stuff they did while Rollie was still in the band.

From: Amy Redding Date: May 17, 2001 at 12:29
The drums tend to sound a bit muffled on this one, but the songs more than make up for weak production. Some classic material on this CD.

From: koogles Date: June 28, 2002 at 17:52
'Anyway You Want It' really puts the rest of this album to shame. 'Stay Awhile', 'Line of Fire' and 'Where Were You' aren't bad but it was obvious Journey needed a tune-up and an oil change after this one. Luckily, Jon Cain was the man in the overalls with the slick 10W40. And even though I like Cain and think he helped take this band to the next level, I do miss those legendary Perry/Rollie duets. Sadly, none are found on 'Departure'.

From: PaterSlovenske Date: September 28, 2002 at 19:23
I actually own this record (on vynil) and it's a good one, the highlights are the bluesy 'Walks Like A Lady', 'I'm Crying', 'Line Of Fire' and Homemade Love'. But what I like most about this band is the fact that Steve Smith would go to greater musical horizons on the fusion scene, recording such albums as Show Me What You Can Do (With my idol, Stuart Hamm, and Frank Gambale) and Vital Tech Tones (With Scott Henderson and Victor Wooden) .

From: TIM Date: October 31, 2002 at 15:56
I liked the ones koogles mentioned as well as 'Good Morning Girl.'

Ya el comienzo con ANY WAY YOU WANT IT ya presagiaba lo lejos q iban a llegar estos Monstruos!!!

From: howe Date: December 10, 2003 at 19:58
ANY WAY YOU WANT IT is among my favorite rockers ever - what a monumental tune! Journey forever!...

From: Cheyne Date: March 26, 2004 at 23:46
Whatta great album, brings me back so many great memories...Steve Perry's voice just did it for me, 'Stay Awhile','Walks Like a Lady' and 'Good Mornin' Girl' are my faves, but I love the rockers too! The notes he's hitting in 'Homemade Love' and 'I'm Cryin' are phenomenal

From: edwithmj Date: July 22, 2009 at 12:24
Far too much filler on this album for me. Any Way You Want It actually caused me to get this album and it's definitely the best on the album by far. The trouble is the rest of the album doesn't come close to this one track. Walks Like A Lady is far too slow and bluesy; Somewhere Soon has a good solo and that's it; People And Places is possibly one of the worst songs I've ever heard and while I can listen to all the album in one sitting, this song I just have to skip; Precious Time and Where Were You are OKish but I certainly wouldn't listen to them on their own merit; I'm Cryin' is a good ballad but they did much better on the later albums; Line Of Fire is a good mid-tempo rocker; two more filler tracks follow with Deaprture and Good Morning Girl; and the last two tracks are good rockers with Homemade Love being the better of the two.Thank God Jonathan Cain joined the band after this as his input is obviously why Escape and Frontiers were such classics.

Oops. I made a mistake. I meant Someday Soon but I guess you all knew that and I spelled Departure wrong.

From: Whitesnake Date: July 28, 2009 at 8:47
"Anyway You Want It" is definitely not the best song on this album IMO. That song is just in any way too much, especially the chorus is bad. "Walks Like A Lady", "Someday Soon" & "Stay Awhile" are the best melodies - nice songs! "Infinity" is still the best cd from Journey (Steve Perry were never better), but this one comes close. Beautiful material!

From: hair metal again Date: June 9, 2011 at 1:18
good release by JOURNEY but surely not one of their best.the band seems to jam a bit and doesnt care to write memorable tunes.the result is that only "any way you want it" becomes a classic.there are some pretty good songs too like "i m cryin" and "someday soon".for fans only
