This album marked a serious transition for Journey. Steve Perry had come aboard, the sound of the band had changed, and the feel of the music was larger, with a great deal more emotion.
This album alone has more hits than any other Journey album. With songs like 'Lights (#68 on Billboard),' 'Feeling That Way,' 'Anytime (#83 on Billboard),' 'La Do Da,' 'Patiently,' and Wheel in the Sky,' all of which were hits, Journey put itself on the rock and roll map. The Album itself ranked 21 on the charts, and at the time of its release it was Journey's biggest album. Moreover, after this album, Journey went on the produce and record seven more huge selling albums which ranked better than 'Infinity' on the charts ('Open Arms' reaching #1). But in my opinion, this one is their best.
The album itself is perfectly arranged, every song seems to follow from the previous one, making for a nice continuous flow. Perry is at his best vocally (aside from maybe the Open Arms album), and the band sounds better than ever.
If you have never heard Journey before (if that could ever be the case with anyone out there), then this is the best album to start with. Moreover, if you are a big Journey fan, then you already know just how good this album actually is. I highly recommend it.

Of course, Journey reached their peak point of radio dominance during the 80's, ruling both the airwaves and the touring road. But 1978's rock and roll acheivement "Infinity" sets the stage for their craft of musical excellence that would become their trademark in the next decade.
Here, Journey, with frontman Steve Perry debuting, shapes the form of their classic rock and roll--a blend of soft magical melodies ('Lights'), Neal Schon's hard rocking riffs (the carnie's ballad 'Wheel in the Sky'), FM radio gems ('Anytime'), and of course, the element of Journey that sets them apart from other graduates of their genre, their slightly enigmatic genuine poignancy (captured here on 'Winds of March'). All throughout "Infinity," Journey introduces us to their unique stylings; soft keyboard and piano arrangements (specialty of Greg Rollie) combined with profound rhythms and beats (thanks to Ross Valory & Aynsley Dunbar, who soon departed after this set's release), matched with Steve Perry's uncomparable vocals and Neal Schon's classically trained guitars.
Journey in many ways set up the radio pop-rock sound that was so evident in the '80's, combining synth and genuine rock. However, this pop sound of the next decade was soured by such other acts as the Culture Club and countless other burn-outs, but Journey was one of the few bands to turn that sound of theirs into a perfected musical craft. This lovely little thing called Journey was formed by a harmonic musical perfection, and "Infinity" displays that excellency in all its glory, as would a string of successful albums throughout the next decade.

I was 14 years old when this album was released. I went over to a friends house after school and through the door of his older brother's room was the sound of this voice. The voice was, Steve Perry's.
I was already building a pretty diverse record collection. I told my friend to hang on for a second and literally stopped in my tracks and knocked on his brother's door. He opened the door and said, "Hey, what's up?" I asked who it was that he was listening to. He said, "Journey." and showed me the cover. That friday night, I went to a local department store with my family and passed by the record section. There it was, "Infinity". With the best looking artwork on the rack. I pulled out my lone $10 dollar bill and bought the record. It was on sale for $5.98!. This purchase began a journey of my own. They were my favorite band from 1978 to 1983's "Frontiers". I bought their records. Went to their concerts on every tour and watched them develop and implode. I didn't know about terms like "corporate rock", or the pending homogenization of rock radio that was beginning to happen. I just knew that i liked their sound. Roy Thomas Baker produced the album's "Infinity" and "Evolution". His production style was a major force to why and how they became so hugely successful. Infinity is an album for the ages and for all ages. Personally, The best Steve Perry Era album, and one which I am listening to right now at the age of 44, as I write this.
It is one of the best rock album's made in the 70's. Waaaay beyond it's time. It had class and soul and groove. The band played great and I feel that if you like good melodic, well sung rock music this is an absolutely stellar recording. If you are into the "New wave" or "punk" generation from the same era. You won't dig this at all. It's not angst.

For the young or the (gasp) uninitiated to Journey, Infinity is the first one to listen to. (Even though there were three albums before Infinity, Journey, Look Into the Future, and Next, these have a certain jazz fusion quality that may or may not be widely appreciated, depending upon the intended audience.) Though certain elements will become more refined in Evolution, Departure and especially Escape and Frontiers, the listener cannot help but be inspired by the energy and freshness of this album. My particular favorite track on this one is "Winds of March-" eloquent and powerful- not what you'd expect, but as you listen to Journey, not just the "top 40" songs by Journey, you will see a wonderfully broad range and depth that will keep the listener forever coming back again and again to revisit the magic.
