Existing comments about this CD

From: MelodicMan Date: July 22, 2005 at 20:32
I believe I will always prefer Arrival, but Generations is a good return for the guys. A real grower, it gave me a good first impression, but it keeps growing after each listening. Personally, I didn't like the lead vocals share, and, w/ the exception of the great closer track sung by DC, Augeri's tracks are my favourites. I liked specially "The Place In Your Heart", "Believe", and the awesome "Better Together". About sound quality, Arrival is also a little above IMO.

From: Rockhead Date: July 25, 2005 at 13:46
Can anybody give us some info as to the production. It seems from other boards that the CD sounds poorly recorded?

From: MelodicMan Date: July 26, 2005 at 6:18
No, Rockhead, it doesn't sound poorly recorded. Production isn't so big as it was in Arrival, since apparently Kevin Shirley isn't the man behind the soundboard this time. But it doesn't sound like a collection of demos like it was in Red 13. Actually it sounds even better than Soul Sirkus for a reference.

From: Rockhead Date: July 26, 2005 at 12:28
Hey Melodicman-Thanks for the update.

From: ROBERT Date: July 26, 2005 at 13:31
q pedazo d Baladon BUTTERFLY,Dios Santo!!Las primeras escuchas q he podido dar a este nuevo y esperadisimo disco d los Dioses del A.O.R.me han parecido con muxos altibajos,temazos como:The Place in Your Heart(fantastico doble solo del Neal)La q mas me gusta por ara es:It's Never Too Late!!dicen q es inedita?Beyond the Clouds es otro Baladon al mas puro estilo d mis Journey, esta muy pero q muydp tenemos temas en los q han "kerido" experimentar, sonidos tipo SOUL SIRKUS...

From: ROBERT Date: July 26, 2005 at 13:37
Y para mi modesto y humilde gusto creo q a estas alturas ya no tienen q demostrar absolutamente nada.es dificil clasifacar el disco, una mitad muy buena, en su linea diria yo, eso si sin yegar a superar ni remotamente al Genial ARRIVAL y muxo menos al TRIAL b.f(compararlo con las otras Obras Maestras:Raised,Escape,Frontiers,me parece Absurdo)Generations es un Gran disco, pero Journey podian haber ofrecido muxo mas, el tema d los"cantantes" ya ni lo comento, ta claro q Dios solo hay uno!!

From: ROBERT Date: July 26, 2005 at 13:40
mi nota por ara (solo yevo pocas escuxas) seria d 7 peladiyo(soy Fanatico pero no sordo)y por temas me kedo con los antes citados... ¿q me deciis vosotros Amig@s? Saludos dd Barna!!

From: Geoff Date: July 30, 2005 at 19:46
Wow, this album really justifies my dislike of this band. I'm honestly a bit stunned at how bad it really is, IMO. Every one of the first 3 tracks are great. 3 gems which made me think I was in for a great album, and then it happens... the proverbial anus opens and the proverbial shit spills out. 'Every generation' is awful, but it gets worse track by track and 'Better together' and 'Gone crazy' are 2 of the worst songs I've ever heard. 1-3 are great, 4-11 are horrible. Pretty damn bad CD, IMO.

From: TIM (2) Date: July 31, 2005 at 10:41
Wow, what a patchy album this is. Some utter garbage on here ("Self-Defence"/"Gone Crazy"), but shit if there aren't some of the most gloriously melodic AOR gems of 2005 on here. "A Better Life" will give you chills every time - what a chorus, "It's Never Too Late" is similar to "To Be Alive Again" from "Arrival" - i.e, awesome, & "Beyond the Clouds" grows into a HUGE ballad of epic proportions. "Believe" is another winner, great keys. This album also displays some of Schon's best guitar work...

From: TIM (2) Date: July 31, 2005 at 10:44
cont.d... ever, some awesome lead guitar particularly. Both opening tracks too are very good & are real growers. Playing this beginning to end is almost impossible it's so all-over-the-place style-wise. But this is so worth it for the gems. The 2 Castronovo-sung tunes are just unbelievable: It's Never Too Late & A Better Life, & are worth shelling out for this alone. 8/10.

From: SCANDI Date: July 31, 2005 at 17:32
Hi Geoff!! I'm glad there's some other guy out there who doesn't like Journey. Ok, I only know there "Greatest Hits" album --but that was enough. Uninspired, boring stuff. I do respect that tastes are different, of course, but really can't realize why the hell so MANY people say about Journey as the best of the best ??

From: swriter Date: July 31, 2005 at 17:42
WOW, not so great, I do like a few songs, the Dean songs r the best, that's about it. I do agree the guitar is great, Neal is always great!!! I must say I did love the 80's Journey eventhough overplayed in the states, Arrival was not much for me, I find it hard to listen to the non-Perry cds cause of the similar vocal range, well, maybe one day we will have a reunion again!!!!! hehehe

From: Erik Date: August 1, 2005 at 10:26
Never really liked this band. They are just not for me i guess. Dont shoot me for it tho.

From: swriter Date: August 1, 2005 at 17:33
Never too late and a better life are the great Dean tunes, make sure u get the import version to get Never too late. Jonathon's tune Every Generation is a pretty good one as well. the best Steve sang tunes are Faith and Place. This one is also growing on me a bit.

From: TIM (2) Date: August 4, 2005 at 15:03
This album seriously grows on you. Am still playing this one a lot. And "A Better Life" is probably the best track Journey have ever penned - is haunting AOR brilliance.

From: swriter Date: August 4, 2005 at 15:18
agreed Tim, some killer songs, mostly Deans, so when is Dean's aor/rock album coming out???? haha, that would be a good one!!!

From: Wotty Date: August 19, 2005 at 16:04
Another that arrived today and I agree with others that on first listens it's quite patchy.But I have a feeling it could be a grower.It's up to the individual to say whether they should be applauded for mixing the lead vocals or should they have just used Augeri all the time.You can love or hate how they did it,but it will make you give it a listen...

From: swriter Date: August 19, 2005 at 18:28
Hi Wotty, yeah, for me it is a grower and the songs I love, I really love, so I made a comp on a cdr that included, Better Life, Place, Every Generation, Harm's Way, and Never too late, I am not crazy over the ballads on here, Knowing is probably the best, I really do love the Dean tunes, also EGeneration-Jonathon's tune is cool, Harms Way is great and heavy!!!

From: Nick C Date: August 19, 2005 at 18:44
Yep... a real grower. It gets stronger each time I've played it. One thing though..why when you have a vocal talent like Augeri in the band do other band members insist on singing? (Castronovo excluded here bcoz his vcls are super). For instance Mr. Cain is a great songwriter but his vocals always seem laboured (see Turn Around in Tokyo ...Babys as early reference point). Mr. Valory should not have been let near a mike for a Journey album ... (cont as if u wanna hear more!)

From: Nick C Date: August 19, 2005 at 18:51
(cont...still reading??? u crazy???) Neal Schon great guitar average vocals again. Look guys keep your vocals to side/solo projects coz they ain't up to it in the main arena and they only weaken an album which should be a flagship in your career (again Castrnovo excepted). Don't end up like Toto Tambu era. Blah blah blah...wait for Erik to dis me!!!!

From: runha Date: August 20, 2005 at 4:14
YESSSS!!!!!! finally, ....those JOURNEY boys are back in business again. great cd, even without ST on vocals. This time Augeri sounds great as a singer, much better than his other attempts with JOURNEY. Keep up the good work, guys.

From: Erik Date: August 21, 2005 at 6:03
Nick C !!!! You are so damn...... right Lol. Nope i agree man. Its like you said. Not bad. Even grows on you. But they should all stick to what they are good at. Especially when you have a singer like Augeri on board.

From: Nick C Date: August 21, 2005 at 9:54
Lol ...Erik yer one of the good guys!! I was only messing with the comment above by the way ... I'm startin' to change, that Street Talk has blown me away!! Aaaah! It's a good life!!!

From: Erik Date: August 21, 2005 at 15:02
Lol i know Nick. Humor is always good. WHat would we do without it. You do have good reviews tho ( am not sure now myself if i am serious tho lol )

From: AOR freaky Date: August 22, 2005 at 10:33
A grower ? ! What grower ? I'm with Geoff and many others : BORING !!! Is this the leading band of melodic rock ? Well, well . . . To be honest : I never was a big fan of these guys (although Frontiers and Escape have some BIG songs !) and this is the prove : Journey better should retire ! Why do they all sing, while Steve blows the other guys away ? Why some stupid, silly songs ? And hell, where are the keys on this disc ?It's pure average straight ahead rock. Neil is the guilty one (see SS)

From: swriter Date: August 22, 2005 at 12:36
Hey Freaky, did u listen to Place in heart, Better Life, Too Late and Knowing, they r four great tunes man!!!!! I also like EGeneration, granted, the entire album is not strong, but man if I can't stop listening to about 5 of them, and worth it for them, those few are wonderful!!!

From: TIM (2) Date: August 22, 2005 at 15:17
I agree with swriter. I really like "Beyond the Clouds" too, brilliantly written. Of course Freaky's listened to these tunes, but it's difficult to let an album grow on you when you don't actually own it

From: Wotty Date: August 22, 2005 at 15:54
As previously stated this is a grower.Neal has cranked up the guitar sound to make the album "raw" yet subtley polished.Rotating the vocalists is a daring move with a definite plus being Deen's performance however,Ross Valory should stick to playing bass on what is an album low-spot.All in all they should be applauded for straying off the norm and trying a different approach.If you don't like Journey or claim you never have,don't bother with this cd,views will only be negative and DULL !!

From: T-Bone Date: August 22, 2005 at 18:15
Musically, a great album, but the rotating vocalists idea kinda sucks. Deen sounds good, and I could possibly see maybe one tune with him on it, but the vocalist duties should stay in the Augeri camp. Neal's guitar playing is truly pumped up a little on this compared to previous efforts as well. Good songwriting and production, but not-so-good idea for the rotating vocalists.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 23, 2005 at 5:48
TIM (2) : why another stupid accusation ? ! Man, contact GEORG SIEGL at AOR Heaven and ask him if Freddy De Keyzer (my real name, mate, so enough of your silly games !) didn't buy the Journey CD at his store, just like 90% of the things over here. If I review something, mostly I do own it, only not the nu-breed/modern stuff (but I listen to it at Music Mania, my other fave record shop !). So stop accusing me. Live with the fact that I don't like this record that much ! I never said it's bad, but

From: AOR freaky Date: August 23, 2005 at 5:52
not up to the standards Journey should reach. Read most other melodic websites and see what most write about this record : DISAPPOINTING ! Even some fans agree ! But of course : some adore this band that much that they accept everything, even 5 or 6 real bad songs !!!!! Why ? If another young or unknown band would release this record, they were slagged off immediately ! BE HONEST ! This is not bad, but far from good. Journey is from the past. Accept it ! And TIM (2) : I want your excuses, man.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 23, 2005 at 5:55
For Gods sake, let us all live in peace here. After all, in fact we do all like the same kind of music. O.K., there are differences and that's good. But let's respect each one's view on some bands and releases. Tastes differ. If you enjoy this release, great. I don't. Give me the FANTASTIC PRESTO BALLET any day, any time. It blows away this release. But I'm sure most of you even don't have heard that one. SO ... ! All the best, even to my 'enemies' here. And let's now listen to music !

From: rainmaker Date: August 29, 2005 at 11:04
Journey vuelve a sus inicios! Me parece un disco maravilloso y admirable, ya que recuperar el sonido de antiguas obras maestras en algunos temas, a la vez que mantienen el estilo y el gusto en canciones más AOR propias del Trial by Fire o del Arrival. Después de oirlo 15 veces, mi nota es un 9, ya que quizá alguna canción no me vuelve loco; cuando lo haya oido más veces volveré a opinar. Journey is on the road again!!

From: Jez Date: September 4, 2005 at 13:05
OK, I'll cut to the chase on this one. No it's not the best Journey cd ever. Yes, the production is rawer than on other releases. No,it doesn't matter that the other members share vocals (except the godawful Russ Vallory sung 'Gone Crazy'). Yes, it contains some brilliant tracks -'Faith In The Heartland', 'A Better Life', Butterfly', 'Better Together', 'Beyond The Clouds' & 'Never Too Late', and the other tracks ain't half bad either.

Heavy Harmonies Volunteer
From: Jez Date: September 4, 2005 at 13:16
This is still a quality album whatever way you look at it, and compared to some other releases of the genre, favours very highly. Yes it does die in the middle, and should have been cut by 3-4 tracks, but I could also say that about a whole load of others recently aswell. Also comparing this to the Presto Ballet album is pretty rediculous really, as both albums, good though they are, are miles apart stylestically. Freaky, FYI I have added the Presto Ballet album, so should appear shortly!!!!

From: swriter Date: September 4, 2005 at 14:54
agreed Jez, I love about 7 songs and they are fantastic, some of the other to me is filler but those seven are absolutely wonderful tunes and can not get it out of the player!!!

From: Jez Date: September 5, 2005 at 3:12
I'll add 'The Place In Your Heart' to the list of fabbie tracks aswell - awesome stuff. Jesus, isn't 'Gone Crazy' really baaaaaaaaaaadd.????

Heavy Harmonies Volunteer
From: Jez Date: September 7, 2005 at 3:13
Quick note to Freaky - I don't think this new Album is being overrated at all, as you keep commenting on in other album comments. Alot of people seem to be of the same opinion that it isn't their best, Dies somewhat in the middle, could have lost a few tracks along the way and lacks a few more memorable hooks like their past releases. I wouldn't call that overrating it really!!!!

From: Wotty Date: September 7, 2005 at 8:10
This cd does get better with every listen but it is in no way perfect.The weak tracks are exactly that,but there are some real blinders on here.However,why is this album being used as a benchmark by one individual against every other album this year???

From: AOR freaky Date: September 8, 2005 at 12:01
Very simple, Wotty : cause a lot of people want us to believe that this album is the standard, to which all other AOR records should be measured ! See critics, lots of people over here etc. Well, if this is the standard, it's a very poor one IMO ! How can anyone call this a good album if there are indeed 4 à 5 great songs, 4 à 5 reasonable ones and at least 4 real bad tracks ? ! This is a fair rating : 6 out of 10 ! Tip : if you listen over and over to other albums, they will also get better

From: Wotty Date: September 8, 2005 at 13:12
I had not heard that a lot of people were citing this as this years standard A.O.R.album.Blanc Faces,Hartmann and the forthcoming Bardowell album were being lourded as benchmarks.It just seems that Generations. not being the 100% cd some may have been expecting,has given you,Freaky,license to slag a band you dislike anyway.But to name-drop at every opportunity when commenting on other albums is getting tedious.

From: Wotty Date: September 8, 2005 at 13:22
By the way Freaky,do you own this album ?? It's just to clarify your argument.If yes,why buy an album you had already decided to dislike,what a waste of money !!! If no,your argument has no foundation and makes your views look worthless.And you wonder why you suffer from "They're picking on me" syndrome..

Heavy Harmonies Volunteer
From: Jez Date: September 8, 2005 at 14:18
Freak - And which critics/people would they be then . I haven't yet read one review (including here) that doesn't at least critiscise parts of this album and certainly haven't read that this is an album to measure other AOR records by. Complet B'#*shit. Another statement to start an argument

From: AOR freaky Date: September 9, 2005 at 4:34
Yeah Wotty, I have this record, it gets 6 out of 10 from me. I shall send it to you, so you have it too, mate ! WHy can't people accept that I don't find this the best AOR record (cause that's the point of discussion here) of the year. That's all ! Nothing more, nothing less. No, I'm not the biggest Journey fan, but what they offer on Escape and especially on Frontiers is miles ahead of this record. This isn't even pure AOR IMO, but more hardrock. That's not the Journey I want to hear !

Heavy Harmonies Volunteer
From: Jez Date: September 9, 2005 at 8:15
Freak - so to answer my question from above - Where/ who is saying this is the standard by which AOR should be measured. Yeah thought so - nowhere!!!!We except you don't rate it, just stop comparing every album released to it and trying to wind people up. Some of us like it, you don't, no crime.

From: victordeaor Date: September 12, 2005 at 8:53
Esperaba con gran expectacion lo nuevo de Journey y...siento con toda el alma decir que no es lo que yo esperaba de una de mis bandas favoritas.Sí, de acuerdo, no es un mal album, pero no me transmite ni la mitad de lo que lo hacen otros de sus trabajos,a pesar de la valia de todos y cada uno a mi me ha decepcionado un poco.En cuanto a lo de las voces, que gran razon tiene Robert...Steve Augueri es un buen cantante, pero falta algo...la magistral garganta del MEJOR CANTANTE QUE HA DADO EL AOR.

From: biurri Date: September 16, 2005 at 17:03
Un tanto decepcionante el nuevo trabajo de los dioses. Esperaba mucho más y sobre todo después del escepcional "Arrival". Cuando escuche los samples de la 1ª canción creí que se iban a salir, como de costumbre, pero para mi desgracia no ha sido así. Un disco que habría sido bueno para la mayoría de los grupos, pero que se queda en mediocre tratandose de journey y más si lo comparamos con el resto de sus trabajos.

From: TomStavely Date: October 6, 2005 at 9:04
Why does every one overate all these ok albums, if you give this 9/10 then what do you give Escape or Frontiers THINK ABOUT IT. This is a good record but not awesum or breath taking not like Escape or Frontiers. So this gets a much more honest and realistic 5/10 Not bad but certainly not great

From: MysticHealer Date: October 7, 2005 at 14:05
Being a huge Journey fan of some 25 years i was lookin forward to another release and hoping so much that it would be better than the awful Red13. It is better, but only just and overall it is a very poor release yet again. As far as i am concerned this band are no longer the Journey i grew up lovin, mind you that happened a long time ago when Perry was ousted. If any serious Journey fan rates this very highly, then they should park themselves permanently at BackTalk with all the other

From: MysticHealer Date: October 7, 2005 at 14:08
lunatics that cant bear the thought that Journey are now a pale immitation of their former selves, so keep on saying and imagining that the band are still great, when they are just completely lost and out of ideas totally. I would rate this at a 3 only, and thats pushin it.

From: AOR freaky Date: October 8, 2005 at 3:34
MysticHealer : I agree with you on this one. Very disappointing and nothing in common with the Journey at their peak (Escape, Frontiers). Even a big fan should admit that this is very average !

From: TomStavely Date: October 18, 2005 at 3:24
Finally some realistic people who actually give this album what it deserves. 2 weeks ago i gave this album 5/10 i tryed to listen to it more but only the track Better Life is anygood and its not that good, Yes better than the Shit Red 13 0/10 for that peice of crap now i would like to give this a more realistic 3/10 and now its not Journey Jon Cain doesnt play enough its just like a Neal Schon solo album and its worth saying that Dean Castrovano sings better Steve Augeri and Jon Cain is better

From: AORLover Date: October 26, 2005 at 5:53
Well Dean Castrovano and Steve Augeri are very good singers, even if they will never really reach Steve Perry, but this episode is dead and gone, so we have to look into the future... What should I say to this release, well its a lot better than the horrible Red13, but its not our good old Journey anymore. Yes there are also very good tracks on it, but others are indeed bad for Journey, so all in all its a very average release - 5/10 Journey you can do that much better even without Steve Perry

From: swriter Date: October 30, 2005 at 17:27
again, some really great songs on this that I love, and some not so great ones, but some really cool music on here, my prediction is since that Steve got some recognition in the Chicago world series thing, playing DSBelievin, I think I smell a new album with Perry soon!!!!!! ha

From: ggv3004 Date: November 7, 2005 at 4:23
Bueno , no se que decir realmente de este album, lo pude escuchar antes que nadie ya que pude verlos en us primer concierto de este nuevo tour 2005 y ahi regalaron el cd y la verdad esperaba mucho mas de este album, al menos mas de lo que pude escuchar en ese primer concierto que fue muy malo, bueno, malo mas que nada por ese vocalista que traen que la verdad no la hace en vivo, el que si es indiscutiblemente un DIOS de la guitarra es NEAL SCHON el como siempre hizo lo suyo y la verdad creo que

From: ggv3004 Date: November 7, 2005 at 4:24
es el alma de journey, pero este album esta por debajo de sus otros trabajas, la verdad no me gusto mucho, no es totalmente malo, pero ARRIVAL es mejor que este, en fin Journey es y sera siempre JOURNEY!!!

From: TomStavely Date: November 10, 2005 at 6:33
I keep posting on this album but again last night i played it all the way through and it is a peice of shit i wasted my money here on a crap album this album is not a grower it gets worse with every listen id like to re-rate this heap of cack and give it 2/10 and it only gets 2 over 1 because Jon and Neal are on it. EVERY GENERATION is not only the worst Journey song ever made its also quite possibly the crapiest song ive ever heard by any band, "Blasting out Rock and Hip Hop?????? what lyrics

From: TomStavely Date: November 10, 2005 at 6:38
SHIT SHIT SHIT TERRIBLE ABORTION FUCKING CRAP SORRY FOR SWEARING BUT I AM TRYING TO HELP THE PEOPLE DONT BUY THIS STEAMING PILE EVERY SONG SUCKS DICK I THOUGHT BETTER LIFE WAS GOOD UNTIL I SAW THE LIGHT AND REALISED ITS FUCKING BORING SHITE SHATE SHITTY SHIT ALBUM I LOVE JOURNEY AND I HATE THIS

From: Wotty Date: November 10, 2005 at 10:31
To TomStavely.I take it this is not your album of the year.Too many ballads ??,not enough ballads ?? the same with the faster tracks ??,alternating vocalists ??.Without Perry,I'm afraid you're going to take the latter cds on their own merit.I agree it's not the strongest cd they've done,but your slagging may be a bit o.t.t.But opinion is personal !!!!

From: TIM (2) Date: November 10, 2005 at 11:05
Dear Tom, very constructive. Have you ever thought being a journalist? I think some people on this thread are exaggerating just to get attention. It's not their best album nor is it their worst...

Tom -If you don't like it at all, then just Bin it, flog it, make a coaster out of it & please spare us any more of the Bulls**t. If 'Every Generation' is the worst song you've ever heard, then you obviously haven't heard very much have you?? As a matter of interest, what do you like???

From: Nick C Date: November 12, 2005 at 20:31
Don't think Tom likes much... every review I've seen he's bad mouthing a band...maybe he should form his own and enlighten us As I mentioned earlier this isn't as bad an album as people make out. Journeys nadir was probably Trial by Fire which was pretty hard going and while this isn't as good as Arrival it has it's great moments "Faith.." is a superb song and there are a few more to match, problem is the lows on the album are LOW and that plays into the hands of people who don't like 'em.

From: TomStavely Date: November 21, 2005 at 18:09
Well sorry my comments were ott,just sick of albums getting high ratings because it makes ratings pointless like i said how can this have 8/10 what do you give Escape if you give this 8 or 9? please i just want people to rate these albums fairly. Nick u dork i like loads of aor/rock/metal thats why i visits this site duhhh.Never wanted to join a band like listning to music if thats ok with u. Anyway i'll end all my comments with a more calm critisism Jon&Neal are capable of so much more Arrival

From: TomStavely Date: November 21, 2005 at 18:13
great a 7/10 but this is crap and to Jez i have got rid of it i traded it in with some of my other terrible albums and got Diamond Daves covers album which at least made me smile and laugh. And finally to Tim no never wanted to be a journalist and not an attention seeker just dont like this album mate and you are wrong on one thing THIS IS THE WORST JOURNEY ALBUM well until the next one maybe. Lets all listen to Escape together and have a beer im sure we'd smile. Cheers

From: Nick C Date: November 22, 2005 at 14:26
Tom!! Dork Me!!!! The horror!!! It usually takes people a little longer to figure that out about me heh!!! You're probably right about Escape and beer though I'll grab beer anytime. I'd give this about a 7ish as there are some really top songs on it.. Escape I'd rate 9 ish maybe 9.5. The rating system at the top is based on an average from all the people who vote for it I don't think I've actually rated this one at all but if I did the 7 would lower the overall rating (currently at 7.94).

From: TomStavely Date: November 29, 2005 at 18:13
Yeah any excuse for beer is good,I suppose i could spend the whole night sitting listning to the album if i was drunk. Maybe it sounds better when your drunk, So Nick were you sober when you played this? infact were any of you sober when you listened to this, nah your not a dork Nick God its not like any of us are cool we all own or owned a Journey album in 2005 some 20yrs since their heyday haha, Really the last awesum Aor album i heard was Refugee's Affairs in Babylon.thats old though.Cheers

From: Wachen Date: December 25, 2005 at 16:31
It's not that hard to review this one. Number 1,2,3, 8 and 13 is classic journey and AOR at it's best. The rest is forgettable at best. It's a shame that a talented band like this waste time on songs like "Gone crazy" and "In self defense". Anyway, good album! But "Arrival" was better! =) 7/10

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 12, 2006 at 15:34
Journey is currently being fronted by lead vocalist Steve "Non-Perry" Augeri. Well ok, the band still puts together great music for sure & Augeri at times does sound like Perry on tape but for those that have never seen this incarnation of the band live, this is where the rhyme ends. Don't expect 2006 to be 1981.

hi from COSTARICA,de todos los albumes melodicos que he comprado durante el 2005 en donde se mencionan los cds de GOTTHARD-JADED HEART-ALIEN-PLACE VENDOME-T N T-CIRCUS MAXIMUS-91 SUITE-ALLEN/LANDE-STARBREAKER-BRAZEN ABBOT. este disco de JOURNEY es uno de lo albumes que mas resistencia he tenido al compralo,NO ME NACE COMPRARLO.yo tengo los otros 2 con STEVE AUGERY pero este disco ya lo escuche en melodicrock y me resulta un mal sabor de boca ya que en este cantan edmundo raymundo y todo el mundo

From: mauricio Date: January 26, 2006 at 15:02
aqui cantan todos NO HAY CONTINUIDAD es como si journey volviesen a 1978.a mi en lo personal no me gusta este disco aunque a muchos si les guste. yo no compraria lo siento mucho no es nada personal pero la voz de augery no me cierra si tuviera que elegir entre STEVE AUGERY o HUGO ya que STEVE PERRY no volvera mas ME QUEDO CON HUGO,HUGO LE DARIA OTRO TONO A JOURNEY. lo siento

ESTE TRABAJO DE JOURNEY NO SONO A LO QUE ESPERABA TIENE LA CALIDAD DE NEAL SCHON EN LA GUITARRA PERO NECESITA UN VOCALISTA AL ESTILO DE STEVE PERRY PUES ASI MEJOR PONERLE OTRO NOMBRE A LA BANDA ,PARECE BAD ENGLISH,PASA COMO QUEEN QUE NO PARECE EL MISMO CON SU NUEVO CANTANTE Y SUENAN BIEN SI INTERPRETAN TEMAS DE FREE O DE BAD COMPANY . A VECES EL VOCALISTA ES QUIEN, HACE AL GRUPO O BANDA.UNA VEZ ESCUCHE UN TEMA DE JOURNEY QUE CANTO EL TECLADISTA Y ERA BUENO,MEJOR QUE AUGERTY.

From: Lennie Date: March 14, 2006 at 8:02
OK, Ive lived with this album for a while now. I understand that some dont like it, but i think the raw sound is a real hark back to old style Journey pre Escape and I think it works pretty well. Its not their best effort by far, but Neal's playing throughout is awesome (even on Gone Crazy!). Songs 1,2,3,5,8,10 & 13 are all GREAT IMHO. Not many albums of 2005 had 7 GREAT songs???? Or am i wrong?? People shouldnt be so harsh just because it is JOURNEY they are commenting on! V Good release 8/10

From: Lennie Date: March 14, 2006 at 8:08
PS just to add to my comment above. Take 'Frontiers'......now everyone harps on about that like its the BEST Journey album ever (what a joke!!). Fact is that the first 6 songs are fantastic....the rest are throw away in my opinion! Same here on Generations. Lose tracks 6,7 & 11 and you would be left with a belting 10 track album.

From: sluss528 Date: June 25, 2006 at 5:48
again, just another boring ass journey album! somebody slap the shit out of me when i listen to this so i can wake up from this coma that this thing puts me in. 3/10

From: DANTE Date: July 19, 2006 at 10:48
PRECISAMENTE LA ÚNICA CANCIÓN BUENA DEL DISCO LA CANTA DEEN CASTRONOVO (A BETTER LIFE). UNA DECEPCIÓN.

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: October 30, 2006 at 19:05
PUES YO LO HE ESTADO ESCUCHANDO EN ESTOS MOMENTOS Y PUES NO ME ESTA AGRADANDO, LA VERDAD. YO DISFRUTO ESCUCHANDO TODOS LOS DEMAS DISCOS DE JOURNEY(A PARTIR DE STEVE PERRY) Y CON ESTE DISCO NADA MAS NO SUCEDE NADA. ESTOY DE ACUERDO CON VARIOS COLEGAS, ESTE ES UN DISCO DE ALTIBAJOS... LOS MEJORES TEMAS SON LAS BALADAS COMO: "BUTTERFLY", "BEYOND THE CLOUDS", "KNOWING THAT YOU LOVE ME" Y MEDIOS TIEMPOS "FAITH IN THE HEARTLAND", QUE ES MUY AL ESTILO DE LO QUE VENIAN MANEJANDO EN EL EP "RED 13"

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: October 30, 2006 at 19:12
"THE PLACE IN YOUR HEART", EN LA LINEA DE "ARRIVAL" Y EL BONUS TRACK "NEVER TOO LATE" MUY CAÑERA, SIMILAR A "TO BE ALIVE AGAIN"... SINCERAMENTE, LO DEMAS ME SALE SOBRANDO, PARA MI. DE NINGUNA MANERA CREO QUE "A BETTER LIFE" SEA UN TEMA SOBRESALIENTE... STEVE AUGERI, LO ENCUENTRO EXCELENTE, LOS TEMAS QUE EL INTERPRETA EN ESTE DISCO ESTAN A LA ALTURA DE LO MEJOR DE JOURNEY. DEEN CASTRONOVO ES UNA REVELACION, LO HACE MUY BIEN. DE AHI EN FUERA, PUES COMO DICE EL DICHO: "ZAPATERO A TUS ZAPATOS"...

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: October 30, 2006 at 19:17
ES DECIR, JONATHAN CAIN, FANTASTICO TECLADISTA, SENSACIONAL, PERO LOS TEMAS QUE EL CANTA EN ESTE DISCO SON INTRASCENDENTES. EL MAESTRO NEAL SCHON, COMO CANTANTE, MEJOR QUE LO DEJE PARA SUS PROYECTOS SOLISTAS. Y ROSS VALORY NOS CASTIGA CON "GONE CRAZY"... JOURNEY NO TIENE POR QUE SER COMO TOTO. EN TOTO, YA EXISTE UNA LARGA TRADICION DE MULTIPLES SOLISTAS PARA SUS CANCIONES. MAS EN JOURNEY NO ES ASI, LO HUBO EN SU PRIMERA EPOCA CUANDO GREG ROLIE CO-INTERPRETABA CON PERRY ALGUNOS TEMAS,PERO JOURNEY

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: October 30, 2006 at 19:22
NO TIENE POR QUE IMITAR ESO... CUANDO ME ENTERE DE QUE EN ESTE DISCO HIBAN A CANTAR TODOS SUS INTEGRANTES ME PARECIO UNA IDEA ABSURDA. EN CONCLUSION: EL HECHO DE UTILIZAR 5 SOLISTAS DIFERENTES LE RESTA SOLIDEZ, CALIDAD Y COHESION AL MATERIAL, EN CAMBIO NOS ENCONTRAMOS CON MUCHOS ALTIBAJOS Y EN GENERAL UN TRABAJO POCO AFORTUNADO... SI, ME ENCANTA JOURNEY, PERO NO PIENSO CEGARME Y CON TODO EL DOLOR DEL MUNDO DEBO DECIR QUE ESTE MATERIAL NO LO ENCUENTRO EN EL NIVEL DE SUS GRANDES OBRAS. SALUDOS!!!

JOURNEY LIVE!!! SABADO 24 MARZO, SALA RIVIERA DE MADRID, por 1ª Vez en Directo en Spain!!!

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: December 26, 2006 at 23:08
Noticia de última hora!!! Steve Augeri sale de Journey debido a problemas con sus cuerdas vocales y entra a la banda Jeff Scott Soto. Noticia Bomba! Bueno, para empezar debo comentar que esto que le sucedió al bueno de Augeri es una pena, una lástima, pues el se había afianzado en la banda... desde Tall Stories, donde ya se anunciaba como una revelación y más adelante en el malogrado "Shine" de Tyketto. Augeri logra entrar en el 98 a la banda de sus sueños y tras la edición del "Arrival"(2000)..

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: December 26, 2006 at 23:13
la inclusión del nuevo vocalista generó comentarios encontrados, en parte por que la fracción más conservadora de la fanticada Journey no acepta a otro cantante que no sea Perry, siendo hasta ahora, finales del 2006, cuando debido a problemas de Augeri en sus cuerdas vocales Journey recurren al eficiente 100% Jeff Scott Soto para cumplir la gira americana. Bueno, mi opinión. por supuesto Perry es inigualable, su estilo, carisma e insuperable voz son elementos que no se podrán conseguir de nuevo

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: December 26, 2006 at 23:24
pues pertenecen a una época determinada y muy especial que fue la era dorada del AOR en los 80´s, en cuya segunda mitad ya se notaba que la unión Journey-Perry no hiba a durar por mucho tiempo más, lo cual se evidenció cuando Perry sale de la banda debido a un accidente de alpinismo (o acaso diferencias musicales?? quien sabe) y aunque Augeri cumplió con creces su labor, hubo sectores de la critica que fueron injustos con el, acusandolo de imitar a Perry, si embargo, Augeri hacía lo suyo...

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: December 26, 2006 at 23:25
El regreso de Perry a Journey cada día lo veo más difícil, pues ahora ya se ha concentrado en su vida personal y se le ve feliz. Y pues con la entrada de Scott Soto, la banda gana en presencia, versatilidad y fuerza, que era algo de lo que a veces adolecía Augeri en sus presentaciones. Jeff Scott Soto es un vocalista espectacular cuyo registro, si bien es muy diferente al de Perry en cuanto a tesitura, le proporciona a Journey la oportunidad de amoldarse al estilo mas duro de Scott y ofrecer...

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: December 26, 2006 at 23:28
excelentes conciertos a la audiencia. No hay duda de que la entrada de Scott Soto le imprimirá frescura a una banda, que tras la edición de ese fallido "Generations", había perdido... y a Augeri, desearle que se recupere y esperar que esta andadura con Journey le haya asegurado la vigencia en la mente de los fans del AOR. En lo personal estoy bastante emocionado con que Jeff Scott Soto esté en Journey, pues el señor ha trabajado duro y se lo merece. Creo que vienen grandes cosas para Journey.

From: ROBERT Date: December 27, 2006 at 12:43
Mi Humilde Opinion d Fanatico Acerrimo d este Grupo dd q tenia 17 años (voy pa 37!!): Solo digo q si Gracias a Jeff , estos Monstruos de la Musica vienen por 1ª Vez a Spain (aunq solo sea una coincidencia) dp d mas d 30 años d historia!! (igual ago tiene q ver tb el exo d q el Soto sea d origen Hispano, o no) Lo e dixo muxas Veces, yo iria a verlos aunq fuera con Ricky Martin!! Kizas tb influya el exo d q los q ya emos visto a los Sosisimos SOUL SIRKUS (con 3 d los 5 miembros actuales d Journey)

From: ROBERT Date: December 27, 2006 at 12:43
igual ubieramos preferido algo "nuevo", algo diferente, pero ya digo q solo es una reflexion mia... Otra cosa, es q mi preferencia claramente seria rogar por la vuelta d Dios Resucitado!! para mi Journey siempre sera Dios STEVE PERRY y Dios Perry siempre sera parte d JOURNEY!! Por cierto, me encantaria ponerme en 1ª Fila delante del Juanito Cain (el unico junto con el Gran ROSS VALORY, q no e visto d la Banda Actual!)

From: ROBERT Date: December 27, 2006 at 12:44
Por otro lado: Mi Discazo preferido q a cantado Jeff, es el WINDOWS OF THE SOUL del 93' d EYES!!! Brutal Cantante sin duda!! lo e visto 3 veces en Directo, y nunca me a decepcionado (incluso una vez me invito a cantar con el en el escenario!! ) Y tb fui a cenar con el, su Banda y Varios Amigos mios a un "Restaurante" (VIP'S) d Barcelona, cuando vino la ultima vez en Solitario...

From: ROBERT Date: December 27, 2006 at 12:45
Saludos y Felices Fiestas a Tod@s!! Nos vemos en la Riviera (Si Dios kiere!!) FELIZ 2007!!!

From: ROBERT Date: March 21, 2007 at 12:56

Increible: La 1ª Vez q vienen a Spain, Fexa unica, sala d 2 mil y pico personas... y casi no agotan!! Como cambian los tiempos para algunos y para todos!! 3 dias y contando!!! ):

From: juan carlos Date: May 15, 2007 at 16:48
En global el album decepciona para mí, "Faith in the Heartland", "The Place in Your Heart" y la suave pero fenomenal "A Better Life" (Deen lo hace muy bien) son los temazos pero luego los siguientes temas dejan mucho que desear.. De la producción no me puedo quejar pero igual no ayuda mucho. La riffera "Out of Harm's Way" está en algo pero en general los temas están regulares. Esperaba mas.. 7.5/10

From: Rycheage Date: September 30, 2007 at 18:58
Other than "Faith In The Heartland", "A Better Life" and "The Place In Your Heart", this is lackluster, probably due to the revolving singers. Not my cup of tea. I'm not going to blast this album. It's not their bast yet it's not their worst either. I listen to it on occasion so I don't totally hate it either.

From: Wachen Date: April 8, 2008 at 11:45
I have given this CD so many spins, but I can't get over the fact that it starts brilliant but then gets dull. Tracks 1,2,3,8,13 is classic Journey. But the rest is boring or dull and the tracks with Schon or Valory on vocals is plain awful! 5/10. A decent record, but when we're talking Journey, that is a failure in itself.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 19, 2011 at 23:05
"Arrival" marked what is was supposed to be a great come back for Journey with a new vocalist(Steve Augeri)and actually it did quite well but in here things turned a bit sour...i mean the album is not bad but is not that good either...of course it brings the typical catchy songs that Journey has delivered through their career but with a mellow atmosphere...talking about the songs we can say that "Faith In The Heartland","The Place In Your Heart","Every Generation","Butterfly(She Flies Away)","Knowing That You Love Me"(beautiful ),"Out Of Harm's Way","Gone Crazy"(reminds me of ZZ Top when they play rough!)& "It's Never Too Late" are kinda good but it could have been better ones...i know that Journey could have done it that way back then...anyway,this is already a past note of Journey's career...actually this was the last album recorded with Steve Augeri on vocals...so,next page,please...90/100

From: hair metal again Date: June 20, 2011 at 9:58
good release by JOURNEY but nothing spectacular here!the songs with Augeri in vocals are the best and i would say that there are some fillers in it and sometimes the songs get boring.of course there are moments when the musicianship is excellent and some remarkable songs like "faith in the heartland","the place in your heart" and "butterfly".i would say that it is an ok release

From: 123charpenay Date: October 28, 2011 at 11:30
i am ok with aorfreaky,geoff,scandi this is not the best journey record.good production good singer but in this record journey is very nervous.they forget that they are not a real hard rock band.the result is average even if track n°3 is marvellous.this cd is for die hard journey s fans.not for me.i have their greatest hits in my collection.it s enough.
