Biography

by William Ruhlmann

During their initial 14 years of existence (1973-1987), Journey altered their musical approach and their personnel extensively while becoming a top touring and recording band. The only constant factor was guitarist Neal Schon (born February 27, 1954), a music prodigy who had been a member of Santana in 1971-1972. The original unit, which was named in a contest on ...

Customer Reviews

It is a very good song however.
R. Mayer
Many of the music review sites were saying this was a classic return to form, so I figured how bad could this be.

I would highly recommend this album to anyone especially Journey fans.

First of all let's be clear about one thing: this isn't your fathers Journey- Eclipse is like nothing the band has done before; its daring, its unapologetic, it has an edge (and a really sharp one at that) while at the same time it has a unifying theme (you could call it a "Concept Album" if you wanted to) of positivity and spirituality both lyrically and musically which allows the album to become greater than the sum of its parts. In a nutshell, Eclipse is the single greatest rock album in years...maybe decades.

While some are calling this Neal Schon's album, and while it certainly is a guitar record, that is selling it short. This is a group effort no doubt about it-Jonathan Cain's lyrical contributions are clearly evident and his keyboards balance the compositions; Deen Castronovo must have gone through several drum sets (and gallons of Gatorade) because his drumming is vicious-Steve Smith he's not, but this is a hard rock record and he's perfect for it. And then there is Arnel Pineda....wow. That's it-wow. He had the range on Revalation that was clear, but he was a) raw, b) hesitant and c) singing too much like Steve Perry. On Eclipse several things are obvious: first the band clearly got him a vocal coach because his vocals are more polished and most if not all hints of his accent are gone (this is good thing for me...it was distracting), second he sounds stronger-there is more kick and depth...he has become a bona fide rock vocalist and third he has become his own man-and the result is mind blowing. Pineda uses his range often but he doesn't over use it and on many songs I'm more impressed with the power of the voice (especially in the mid ranges) than how high he can sing.

First things first: Journey has been my favorite band since their formation from Santana in 1973. They are one of the most successful American rock bands of all time, yet they are still rejected by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Why? During the peak years they were labled as too commercial and soft. Hello? They had 3 great instrumental albums before Infinity and Perry. They played as great musicians and had the GREAT Gregg Rolie as front man and Keyboardist. I laugh at these casual fans who think Infinity is the first album.

Eclipse is a whole new Journey. It's different than most of their other albums. Basically, when it comes to Journey, there are two camps. Camp One is the instrumental Rolie/Schon/hard rock guitar, keys and drumming group. Camp Two is the Steve Perry Ballad Camp. I'm more of the former, not the latter and I know I'm in the minority. Yes, Perry put them on the map and gave them the biggest success, but they became pop and the hard rocking instrumentals from the first 3 (pre-Perry) albums went away for the most part. Thanks Steve for making them a legendary band. Now as I understand it, Perry has not even made a solo album in almost two decades...so lets move on already! Arnel is great. This CD has 12 songs on it and only a couple are ballads. The rest are Hard Rock Shredders! This album is in a way is a sort of Journey Hybrid, combining the 1975 group with a touch of the 1981 and 2008 versions. Once again Neal has shined and taken the band back to the days of rippers like "Nickel and Dime" and away from sappy love songs like "Open Arms." I say this with all due respect for Jonathan Cain. In fact, I give more credit to Jonathan for Journey's greatest success (Rolie recommended him as his replacement) because Jon is clearly the group's best song writer.

Journey released their hallmark album, Escape, 30 years ago in 1981. Since then, a lot has changed. Members have come and gone. Singers have been hired and fired. And through this evolution, Journey has carried on and continued to make new music.

Eclipse is not your typical Journey album, nor is it typical of a band who was established more than 35 yeas ago. This album rocks - hard. If you are looking for timeless ballads in the style of "Open Arms," "Faithfully," or even "After All These Years" from Revelation, you're not going to find any. The closest thing that Eclipse has to those slow masterworks comes in the form of "Tantra". It starts out with just piano and voice, but less than 2 minutes in, it becomes a grand, progressive epic that lasts 7 minutes. It is a very good song however. Arnel Pineda's voice is stunning not only on this song, but throughout the album. He has a presence that is not unlike that of the legendary Steve Perry, and on this album he sounds more like himself than on the previous album where it sounded like he was trying to mimic Perry's phrasing and delivery.

The rest of the album is a guitar fest. Openning with the catchy "City of Hope," Eclipse wastes no time in informing the listener that this is going to be an exciting affair. The chorus to the song is glorious with a perpetual guitar riff that lays the groundwork for the song. The chorus melody also features some nice keyboard flourishes from Jonathan Cain. "Edge of The Moment" and "Chain of Love" continue in a similar style - muscular rock songs with big hooks. Deen Castronovo's drumming is propulsive throughout.

After the aforementioned "Tantra," it's back to rock with the hook-laden "Anything Is Possible".
