|NOT A BAD RECORD A FEW GOOD TUNES NOTHING GREAT
|From: Amy Redding
||Date: May 17, 2001 at 12:51|
|Better than average but nowhere near their earlier stuff like 'Frontiers' or 'Escape.' Some good songs though.
|From: Gary Boole
||Date: July 22, 2001 at 21:39|
|Id put this album right up beside Escape or Frontiers any day. A superb recording and quite a come back for this band. Stand out tracks are 'Once You Love Somebody', 'I'll be Allright Without You', Why Can't This Night Go On Forever, etc. A must have for any Journey fan.
|From: Richard Hall

|Journey has four classic albums of all time .This is the fourth .It may not be in the vain of the other classics(namely Infinity,Escape & Frontiers)but stands out as the ultimate smooth AOR album that others will try to emulate for years to come.
||Date: June 28, 2002 at 17:44|
|Journey's 'West Coast' album. A real winner even though, at times, it sounds more like a Steve Perry solo album than a Journey record. 'Why Can't This Night Go On Forever?' is a forgotten masterpiece. 'Positive Touch' is another diamond in the rough. Add in the hits and you've got one great CD. Given the two throwaway tracks on 'Frontiers', this was, next to 'Escape', their most cohesive album.
||Date: July 16, 2002 at 6:27|
|Following Frontiers after 3 years or so was never going to be easy, but this is a great record that probably defined the whole AOR genre. I don't think it's as good Escape or Frontiers, but that's my personal taste, I prefered the 'Metal' edge of the previous two. Listen to Perry's cry of 'all I wanted was to hold you...' on I'll Be Allright without You..and tell me it dosen't move you. Other great songs on this album are Girl Can't Help It & Once You Love Somebody.

|For all those guys thinking that Van Stephenson or I-Ten are too soft !!!!! What do you think of this, probably the worst CD Journey ever released !! Why ? Because this is no longer AOR but soft pop !!! No guitars at all, or very soft !!! This is indeed more an Steve Perry solo CD and bad !! All tame ballads. Boring !! Frontiers is still their best !!!!
||Date: February 14, 2003 at 19:46|
|Exactly! This is a solo Steve Perry album masquerading as a Journey album. It's pretty good, but it definitely ain't Journey. Listen to this back to back with FRONTIERS and you'll see the difference.
||Date: February 16, 2003 at 0:20|
|'Be Good To Yourself' and 'Girl Can't Help It' do include the rest of the band. Two of my fav's by the way.
||Date: February 16, 2003 at 17:28|
|This was around the time when Steve Perry had Steve Smith and Ross Valory fired. The band was NEVER the same after that!

|'This album is the bomb dawg!' So says American Idol's Randy Jackson, who plunked his polka dotted bass on the disc and in the videos.
||Date: May 31, 2003 at 9:11|
|This is the finest Journey album without a shadow of a doubt. The best Production, The best vocal work by Perry ever, and the Best songs that the band ever wrote. How anyone who supposedly loves AOR can slag this album is beyond me (Freddy De Keyze, i agree with a lot of your comments about certain bands but you are sadly so wrong with this one my friend). This album DESTROYS Escape and Frontiers instantly from the very first cut. This is the materpiece Journey album. This is THE ONE.
|From: freddy de keyze
||Date: May 31, 2003 at 10:42|
|Dear Chris, I'm happy you agree with most of my comments. But I think we disagree on this one. Personally I find this the weakest Journey release. Why ? Because it's more a Perry solo effort, full of ballads and far too poppy ! Where are Neils wonderfull guitarsolo's ? But if you like it, alright. We can't have the same opinion about every release, don't we ?! All the best, Chris !
||Date: June 1, 2003 at 11:01|
|Well, Freddy, we finally found a mistake in your legendary AOR knowledge. As Mr Schon's actual first name is NEAL. Yes, N-E-A-L ! Just have a look at the personnel credits listed above !
|From: freddy de keyze
||Date: June 1, 2003 at 12:22|
|You're right, Pierre, it's indeed Neal. Thanks ! But english isn't my mother tongue, so I made a mistake and it's not my first and I'm afraid it won't be my last.
||Date: June 1, 2003 at 14:32|
|You're welcome Freddy Even if it sounds very on the softer side, that's a great JOURNEY album. The song 'I'll Be Alright Without You' is actually a timeless classic.
||Date: September 29, 2003 at 14:07|
|I think this is my favorite Journey album. Why? There are NO songs on this record that bother me to the point of skipping it. There's no 'Back Talk', or 'Open Arms', or 'Dead Or Alive'. Is it more of a Perry solo album? I WISH Perry could put out a solo album as consistent as this. 9.5/10.
||Date: March 30, 2004 at 6:12|
|I also like this album, but I agree this isn't exactly the way Journey sounded like. I love both the earlier records and this record, but I do hope they will keep their own sound like back in the early 80's in the future.
||Date: April 2, 2004 at 19:47|
|The last ever 'real' Journey album since this was the last one where Steve Perry still had his voice in order.
|From: AOR freaky
||Date: July 12, 2004 at 5:51|
|This rocks ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ! It's the 'softest' Journey record ever. In fact, it's a Steve Perry solo record ! Pure pop, not rock. Only ballads, no rockers ! I admit I'm not a big Journey fan, but all Journey fans should admit that this is not rocking at all, and that it is their weakest effort by miles ! Bad one !
||Date: July 12, 2004 at 6:18|
|Freaky-who says this rocks in the above comments? And actually Raised On Radio (the title track) is an out and out rocker (the only 1 granted). When did you last listen to these. Normally you are spot on but your hatred of Journey I think clouds your opinion. I say this because you claim no rockers when they ARE BLATANTLY THERE. I think you should perhaps now write about the ones you like, because your credibilitiy is starting to slide downhill rapidly.
|From: AOR freaky
||Date: July 12, 2004 at 15:39|
|Dear Rockhead : Richierocker suggests it ! Is there one rocksong on this record ? Don't think so ! Journey heavier and better than Van Stephenson ? ! NO WAY !!! 'Modern Day Delilah' blows away all Journey stuff, except that brilliant 'Send Her My Love'. I made a terrible mistake here, Rockhead. Sorry! And yes, not one Journey record would make my all time top 100. This is not that I want to he 'negative' or so, but it's simply the truth. Give me your email and I send you my all time faves Best

|Freaky my email is email@example.com
||Date: July 14, 2004 at 15:23|
|'Be good to yourself' is perfect AOR - all soaring harmonies, melody and some simple melodic guitar lines from Neal Schon. Rest of the album is still good but nothing like Escape...our band were even called Still We Ride after the classic song (and I know it's Still They Ride!)
||Date: July 14, 2004 at 21:50|
|Not the best release from Journey, but good nonetheless. 'Girl Can't Help It', 'Be Good To Yourself', I'll Be Alright Without You', and 'Raised On Radio' highlight a good CD. Not their best, mind you, and not their hardest but recommended for AOR lovers out there.
||Date: August 20, 2004 at 20:23|
|In my opinion,this is a vastly underrated album containing some sublime ballads and mid-tempo foot-tappers.Also contains my favourite Perry vocal on HAPPY TO GIVE.
||Date: August 25, 2004 at 13:50|
|I'm a big fan of Journey, but I just had their greatest hits album, bought this one and woww, it's awesome!, not their best efford but still so great.... The song 'Suzanne' is so cool! it's my favorite from the whole album.... I recommend this album just for the die hard fans of Journey... people not used to Journey with their Greatest hits package would be alright....cheers from MEXICO.
||Date: September 12, 2004 at 6:17|
|Soft ? Yeah, but it really fitted the year, AOR in it's heyday. Journey is Steve Perry and Steve Perry is Journey. I think they dont need to be harder than this. Raised On Radio is hard enough. Anyway, one hell of an album. Less guitars and many keyboards. It's great to listen to it while watching the distant sunset.
||Date: September 20, 2004 at 13:05|
|This album is so 'summer of 1986,' and I mean that in a good way, too! 'Suzanne' and 'Be Good To Yourself' rate right up there with any other songs Journey's released (except maybe their all-time classic 'Don't Stop Believing.') This is nothing short of a 'feel-good' AOR / Melodic Rock classic.

|From: Axe Machine
||Date: November 29, 2004 at 9:46|
|Why didnt Journey carry on straight after this disc....it's classic. This is when Perry could actually still sing, and he sounds perfect on this disc mixed with the right servings of keys and guitars. Possibly Journey's finest moment. 10/10
||Date: December 2, 2004 at 20:43|
|Underrated. Not like the heyday boys, but still ok by me.
|From: Kim HP
||Date: January 3, 2005 at 17:01|
|Perfect AOR release. Excellent production, flawless musicianship and most importantly, killer songs. The first 6 tracks are my faves, but there really aren't any weak songs on here.
||Date: January 11, 2005 at 12:13|
|Wow! You can take the easy way out and list Escape or Frontiers as your favorite Journey albums, but in my book Raised On Radio is their best effort, and fit 1986 like a glove! Suzanne and Be Good To Yourself are perhaps the best back-to-back tracks since Ozzy's Over The Mountain and Flying High Again (no musical comparison)! I wore out two cassette tapes back in the day constantly hitting the rewind button. I'll Be Alright Without You and Girl Can't Help It are also fantastic.
||Date: January 18, 2005 at 15:19|
|The best cd of Journey.
|From: AOR freaky
||Date: January 19, 2005 at 6:28|
|To be honest: I'm not that big a Journey fan, but this is one of the worst, so called AOR CD's, ever released and certainly the weakest by Journey. It's not AOR, but pure soft pop, I'm afraid ! No balls, no power, no rock at all !
||Date: January 19, 2005 at 18:14|
|AOR Freaky-so you don't like it? No way-I would have never guessed from the 5-6 posts you already made on this. I hate to admit it but i agree with you on this one. Even on the greatest hits tape I'd skip over anything from this album. I love Journey but I can not stand this disc. Give me Escape anyday.
||Date: January 26, 2005 at 4:22|
|hey freaky,just last night I gave it a listen after a long time period and i felt again the same way i did the 1st time i listened to it. Maybe too poppy but it's so sweet music piece.Waterfalls of milk&honey ha,ha.

||Date: January 26, 2005 at 7:15|
|hey p.k., I do understand your feelings, mate !
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 3:48|
|Just an honest question, no harm intended but I'm a little curious. What makes this soft pop and others AOR? I admit I am not very well versed on AOR and limit my AOR liking to the bands that blow me away like Outside Edge, Ransom ('Trouble in paradise') and Outland, though I'd label them melodic rock without a second's doubt. But what makes this soft pop and all those bands AOR Freaky mentions about the place AOR? I'm not offended as I don't like Journey either... just curious.
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 4:29|
|Geoff-AOR Freaky HATES Journey and therefore anything he shares with us about them is bias and drivel. This is AOR make no mistake. This was a very ballad heavy release with a softer sound (only the title track features Schon in any way shape or from. The other bands stated perhaps more of guitar /keyboard balance.
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 4:43|
|Glad to see I might not be losing it Rockhead (?). Because for me AOR is not so much the keyboard / guitar balance, but more the style of song writing. Eg. To me, Toto and Tommy Denander is just a COMPLETELY different stlye of song writing compared to melodic hard rock eg. Fate, Jaded Heart, Steelhouse Lane etc. To the point where I love the latter 3 bands but strongly dislike the former 2. But as you say, to me this is as AOR as any others, whether I like it or not
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 4:51|
|Geoff!! Strongly dislike Tommy Denander ??? That hurts !! Hold on,Have we been here before ????
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 5:05|
|Yeah, we have been here before Wotty and I apologise to you again. I mean no harm, it's just the way I feel. He's doing great things for the industry and I like about 2 songs of the two Prisoner CDs, there's a great ballad on the Jim Jidhed CD but it hurt when he destroyed Talk of the Town's 2nd CD (Also one good song ), stripped them of all their own identity. I appreciate what he does, but am certainly not a fan of those style of songs. Sorry mate.
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 7:17|
|I was told recently that some Doobie Brothers albums in the 80s,are superb aor.If that's true then i need some help here!.thax.

||Date: January 27, 2005 at 9:05|
|For me this after 'Escape' is my favourite Journey album, soft or not. This is defimnately an AOR album of the highest order ,so don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I have heard alot 'Softer' things over the years described as AOR i can tell you. Great band, great album Nuff said.

|Dear Jez : I don't agree ! This is the most soft record one can imagine ! Rockers ? ! All ballads ! Tell me what so called AOR albums are softer than this pop CD ? ! !
|From: AOR freaky
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 12:48|
|You have a point, Rockhead : I don't like Journey, but in all honesty, this ain't AOR at all. Call it a Perry solo CD (the man likes ballads, not rockers). Bad CD ! And to prove I do not hate Journey : they made with 'Send Her My Love' one of the all-time best ballads ! But my problem with this band is : not one CD is consistant ! Some great tracks, and a lot of fillers, I'm afraid !
|Heavy Harmonies Volunteer|
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 14:34|
|Tracks 1,3,4,7 aren't ballads for starters, dare i say that 'Raised On Radio' the song even rocks a little. Journey have always written softer stuff, which is half the reason i love them in the first place, and AOR genre in general. Alot of the Westcoast AOR stuff (which ROR basically is), is as soft as this if not more so in places - check out Spin Gallery, Crossfade, Heartplay, Toto or listen to some of the sappy stuff Boston, Foreigner, Styx and the like have recorded in the past.
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 14:47|
|The bottom line is the era this album was released.As Jez has stated most A.O.R. bands released albums full of ballads in the mid-80s !!!
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 17:12|
|Over-Blown,Ballady.Sold alot but so does anything Promoted to death! Neil is sooo under used in this Poser Band.Yeah they all got talent, Steve's voice can melt butter,But in the end it just doesn't hit the spot IMO.Too Bad,Cause these guys can Really Play. The older stuff is lots better IMO.
|From: Nick C

|Super release from Journey. Steve Perry is on top form and Neal Schons deft touches on guitar shine. A very very polished effort .. superb production. Be Good to Yourself should be everyone's anthem to themselves when they feel a little pissed off! My old local used to have this CD on the jukebox and playing BGtY was always the first thing I did even before going to the bar! Ahh excellent memories!
||Date: January 27, 2005 at 17:24|
|As said previously,it's an album of it's era.In a time when power-ballads ruled the world.Just think back !!!!!
||Date: February 10, 2005 at 4:23|
|I've made plenty of comments here, but none of the CD yet. 'Suzanne' is nice and 'Girl can't help it' is a nice AOR track, but the rest does nothing for me. Never liked Journey and this was never going to change my mind. Very lite.
||Date: February 15, 2005 at 14:13|
|'Be Good To Yourself' is a full-on rocker... Soft? Perhaps in comparison to Slayer or Vio-lence.
||Date: February 16, 2005 at 10:38|
|ahahaha Vio-lence super Godz!!!Not Journey!!
||Date: February 16, 2005 at 14:49|
|Hell- 'Be Good to yourself' is soft compared to even Sammy Hagar. Who cares? To me the quality is just not there. I love Journey's ballads and love their 'heavier' stuff. The mid tempo tunes just don't have the same oomph to them. And BTW i do prefer Slayer and Vio-lence though the AOR Gods may strike me down. IMO- Escape is still the ultimate Journey disc.

|I'll never understand why too many people overrate JOURNEY,10/10?...i don't think so juan carlos.As many people said above,this album reminds more Perry's personal career and songs like 'oh derry' (1,8,10) and not the well-known JOURNEY we all love (escape,frontiers).Namely ballads,ballads and ballads...only 'be good to yourself' really rocks, average work.

|oh man.. well; you stated it, i like the Steve Perry stuff as well as Journey very much. and paul, you must know that my favorite singer to all aor stuff is: Steve Perry and to hardrock is: David Coverdale. Now you've got the question answered. After all, it is a matter of likes.. cheers Paul!
||Date: October 27, 2005 at 17:16|
|Hi juan carlos. As we've said maaaaaaany times and as you said, tastes differ. You seem to love the lite stuff saying you love Steve Perry's works and this album,no problem. Personally i believe that's an average album and nothing more.I would reply VAN STEPHENSON,BLVD,AGENT even STRANDED if you ask me what FM/AOR means and not this boring album.And about Coverdale: I totally agree,the man has THE voice! '1987' is one the best albums ever released and my personal fav hardrock album of all times!
||Date: November 12, 2005 at 18:29|
|probably my fav Journey and the one I go back to listen to most often, Escape and Frontiers would be my next two favs. This one just flows from start to finish and I really do not skip anything, very strong album, some great writing on this one.

|Indeed, a top class release for the lovers of pop ballads. Go for BLVD, AGENT, BEAU COUP, BEAU GESTE, OUTSIDE EDGE and RUSS BALLARD if you want to know what REAL AOR exactly means.

||Date: November 21, 2005 at 6:55|
|The debate goes on & on with this one, which is fine, but for Gods sake we all know by now what AOR is, most of us have been listening to it for the last 25 plus + so don't need any more lists of what is & what isn't. This IS in definition an AOR album,end of story. What is the obsession with calling this a Pop album!!!!It is pretty ballad heavy in general (no more so than 'Trial By Fire'IMO), but as I mentioned in my original post, at least 5 tracks on here certainly aren't ballads(1,2,3,4,7).
|From: TIM (2)
||Date: November 21, 2005 at 7:40|
|This is a whole load heavier than that first AGENT album (which doesn't deserve to be called AOR IMO), & probably the first BLVD too.
||Date: November 22, 2005 at 16:36|
|Oh God, Yaaaawwwwn! Is it AOR? Is it pop? Is it rock??? Who cares! Let's just say that it is an average Journey album when the band were on the slide. There some good parts (eg tracks 1,4 & 8) and some bad! To be honest everyone harps on about Frontiers but that simply does not compare with Infinity and Evolution - they are the true great albums along with Escape. cheers

|Hey paul! 'i'll be alright without you' is a pop ballad? i don't think so.. 'girl can't help it' is not an AOR song? 'suzanne' 'be good to yourself' 'it could..' 'why can't..' and so on.. well, mate.. i think are REALLY AOR songs.. cheers mate! :-)

|listening again after getting on cd a few months back, had the vinyl, but man, is this good, yes, it is 80's but what a great aor album, maybe one of the best!!!!! nuff said---and what a voice Steve has on this one, amazing, just listen to the last song!!!
||Date: January 5, 2006 at 18:12|
|I never expected that of you swriter! AOR or not it's a bad JOURNEY album full of weak and boring tracks...lighter than a fluff! Where are that brilliant keyboard-driven songs like 'seperate ways'? Certainly not here. It reminds more a S.Perry solo album with pop/rock songs like 'oh Sherry' and not the well-known JOURNEY of the past. Sad but true.
||Date: January 5, 2006 at 22:22|
|Freaky???? HAHAHAHA ok Paul, listen to this again, a great aor album and one of the best of the 80's mate!!!!! maybe not heavy, but a great aor album indeed, not my fav Journay, that would be Frontiers, but it is just great aor!!!!!

|Mixed comments above about this release...whether it 'rocks' or it 'softs' this is a very very but very pleasant album...better than Frontiers or Escape???...a matter of tastes,those 2 basically defined Journey as a band and gave them the position they are now as one of the biggest AOR bands in the world...apart from the 3 hit singles ('Girl Can't Help It','Be Good To Yourself' & 'I'll Be Alright Without You')there are other great songs such as 'Positive Touch'(catchy),'Suzanne','Raised On Radio' & 'The Eyes Of A Woman'(nice smoothie)...for me this is a highly recommended album...essential???...up 2 you guys...94/100

|I agree with Wotty. Everyone must understand and remember this album came out in 1986!! 1986 was probably the MOST remembered years in AOR/ROCK music for their BALLADS. Think Journey - Faithfully, Age Of Faith - Will I Find Love, Air Supply - Lost In Love. Some hard rock ballads were Aerosmith - Angel, Europe - Carrie, Firehouse - Love Of A Lifetime and Warrant - Heaven just to name a few. The 80's WERE known well for their BALLADS. This album isn't IMO the BEST of Journey BUT it still is enjoyable to listen to. And at the end of the day isn't THAT what is MOST important?!!
