100% pure 80's cheese.
Quite easily the best album of 1981 and second best Journey album. They were so full of confidence here and the songs just explode with energy. Steve Perry is one of the best ever rock singers and he is absolutely on fire here. The last two songs will give you goosebumps since Steve's singing is out of this world.
Oh and the opener is one of the greatest songs of the 80's.
great vocals and guitar, f*&^ these haters. they just think they're cool to hate on w/e is/was the billboard #1 album. oh and I remember liking the atari game, and I first played it in the mid-90's, so f*&^ that guy too!
Irritating but addictive. You could not escape this album in 1981. I gave it ten extra points for spawning a rather crappy Atari 2600 game of the same name.
For critical reasons, I can only give this album a 70, and even that's being generous, but you don't have to be an ironic, hipster-type to let go of your critical prejudices and just enjoy what Journey did here. Keyboardist Gregg Rollie left and was replaced by Jonathan Cain, and the songs show a marked change in direction. It was Cain who brought "Open Arms" with him and would later write "Faithfully". Any pretensions of being strictly hard rockers were dropped. But so what? When you've got a vocalist like Steve Perry, you need to play to your strengths and for the next three albums they would do just that. Check out Perry's performance of "Mother Father" live from this tour (Houston), then tell me Journey wasn't clicking on all cylinders at this point.
This is squeeze. Boring! The song "Open Arms" really gets on my nerves.
South Detroit would be Windsor, Ontario. Just pointing that out.
"open arms" was my senior prom theme, and although i'm not particularly fond of the song, the album definitely takes me back to that era.
most songs on this aor-record are what aor was invented for: positive-cheerful-slick or gentle-romantic. all is suitable for the masses. many music-lovers will find this repellent. if you are more laid-back in this respect you maybe will find some agreeable tunes on it.
Sometimes tastes change. Once, long ago, I liked this album. Today it seems to me a very average
