Journey finds its footing again and shows signs of its newly-found confidence by taking some chances throughout "Generations." The album is a quantum leap forward from "Arrival" and certainly miles ahead of the uninspired "Raised on Radio" and "Trial By Fire." After twenty years, this album shows Journey returning to the energetic form of "Frontiers" and "Escape." And while not matching the fresh brilliance of "Escape" or "Evolution," on the whole this album is qualitatively the equal of "Frontiers."

What keeps the album from breaking through to brilliant is that perhaps the boldness was tempered TOO MUCH. Taking a few more chances songwriting-wise and incorporating a few more interesting production techniques could really have a huge difference at the top end. If Amazon had decimals, this album would get a 4.3.

The current Journey lineup, which remains a highly successful touring act, is now in its seventh year and the Steve Perry-esque Steve Augeri remains at the mic, supported by the entire band on this release: for the first time in Journey's thirty-year history, every band member gets a turn to sing lead on a song.

Although Augeri develops his own vocal style toward a harder rocking Robert Plant-like edge on this release ("Believe"), Augeri's delivery can nevertheless steer eerily close to Perry's ("The Place in Your Heart").

"The Place in Your Heart" could be "Separate Ways, Part II," and, in fact, seems to be a reflection on the theme of separation, but this time from the perspective of the process of reconciliation.

"Butterfly" is a beautiful power ballad, solo-penned by Augeri, which is straight out of the Journey-swoon playbook and shows that Augeri has absorbed the "Journey-system" of songwriting very well.

I just ordered the import version of this CD that comes complete with a 10-page booklet and 14 songs, including two I have never heard. What I have is the copy the band has been handing out at concerts during their summer U.S. tour that is packaged in a CD size album jacket and has just 12 songs on it. But, in my judgment this is the best music Journey has recorded since Escape and Frontiers. I heard some of these songs previewed at a Journey concert I attended recently and I listened to the new CD on the way home from the concert and absolutely loved it. I have been listening to nothing else for the last two weeks. Honestly, I can't understand the indifference Journey fans have to the new material. I heard people outside the arena complaining about the fact that the band played so many new songs during a 3 hour concert that also featured all the hits from the 70's and 80's that everyone wanted to hear. Do people object to the new material just because Steve Perry is not the front man anymore? Get over it! Steve Augeri's vocals are superb on this new CD and he contributes some writing credits that are excellent as well. The band loses nothing, and I believe gains a great deal with the less egomaniacal Steve Augeri on lead vocals, because they are more of a band. This CD has more variety in musical style then you would have seen in Perry's day, and every member of the band takes a turn singing lead on at least one song on the CD. Schon's and Valory's voices are barely passable, but Cain and Castronovo can sing lead vocal quality on their songs. This is a more creative and happy Journey lineup, and the results are evident on this new CD.
The opening track is "Faith In The Heartland," an excellent rock and roll song about holding onto hope in the face of a changing, dangerous world.

Ok, there are people who are going to either love or hate this one. I haven't found myself capable of really disliking any Journey offering with maybe the exception of "Raised on Radio." Those who enjoyed "Arrival" and "Red 13" will find this one enjoyable as well.

I found it interesting that they switch the lead vocals around - notable examples are Neal Schon on "Self Defense" and Ross Valory on "She's Gone Crazy." (that's one to crank up, it's a fun song) Those who are familiar with Journey before Steve Perry (and have the album "Next") know that Neal sang lead vocals on the song "Karma." Neal also sang lead vocals on his solo album "Late Nite." He's a better guitarist than singer (duh) but he can sing to a degree. He's good if you want a sort of grungy voice.

"Butterfly (She Flies Alone)" and "Beyond the Clouds" are power ballads fronted by Steve Augeri that are more reminiscent of "Escape" or "Frontiers."

Over all I really enjoy this CD - it's fresh, the guitar is awesome and it's a refreshing change from all the syrupy pop and horrid rap/dance garbage that seems to be polluting the airwaves. The problem is that no one will probably hear these songs played on the radio which is a real shame.

Yes it's 80's style music which makes it necessary to make a distinction - there was bad 80's music and good 80's music. This is better than a lot of the good 80's music. Enjoy and don't be afraid to admit your closet pleasure is cranking up Journey in the car!
