Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It will be many years before Journey's music will be known as anything but soupy '70s arena rock and embarrassingly overwrought '80s pop. But that day will come: the songs and the playing are just too good for the scorn and ridicule to endure forever. Journey: Greatest Hits DVD 1978-1997 will do little, however, to hasten the band's salvation. In fact, if it weren't such a gift to those who love the music, a case could be made for suppressing the disc's video content, so unimaginative is most of the directing and so damning is the attire (or lack thereof).

But even if sweaty guys running around in tight jeans and no underwear isn't really your thing, the disc has its treats. There's MTV nostalgia, pure and simple--"Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)," with its mimed quayside performance and strutting high-heeled model, is perhaps the quintessential "What were they thinking?" video. We also get exciting glimpses of the early band (with keyboardist Gregg Rolie passing the lead-vocal torch to newcomer Steve Perry) kicking out classics like "Feeling That Way," "Lights," and "Just the Same Way." Many of the songs feature live audio as well as video, and it's here, most notably in "Who's Crying Now" and "Stone in Love," that lead guitarist Neal Schon cuts loose with some extended licks. An unexpected pleasure is 1996's heartfelt ballad "When You Love a Woman." The guys are aging gracefully, Steve Smith's drumming is better than ever, and the video itself boasts the most tasteful production of the bunch. --Michael Mikesell

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars And What A Journey It Was! May 20, 2006
Format:DVD
This was an enchanting blast from the past. I didn't want it to end. Steve Perry produced it, need I say more.

I was never a huge Journey fan in the day, although Steve Perry's voice melted my soul the first time I heard it. Now I could kick myself for missing several chances to attend one of their concerts. Until recently I never the knew the history of the band or the reason for Mr. Perry's departure. If the Universe is listening, please, please, heal the past so we can see the REAL Journey members reunite. NO ONE can replace Steve Perry. That would be the concert of the century!!!!

In the meantime I will relish this video as well as the 1981 Live Escape Tour while holding out hope they will once share the stage again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Journey On November 23, 2003
By Mike
Format:DVD
First, I am a huge Journey fan. I think the Escape and Frontiers albums are some of the best music I own and I will go weeks on end without taking a Journey CD out of my CD player. Now, as for this DVD, I am glad to see some of the bootleg concert footage I have had for years finally get cleaned up and look good. I think the DVD would have been better if this had been done in chronological order, but that is my opinion. That way you could see the hair/clothes/music styles evlove over time (and see the product placement from when they promoted Budweiser).
I would have liked to know why they just do not release the whole Houston concert, or even the Tokyo concert from that same year out on DVD, I think they would each be big sellers. As it is this is a great look at a wonderful band. I love to watch the "Seperate Ways" video because it is so "80's", one of the best videos for that time (best to make fun of).
If you are a Journey fan, buy this DVD. If you are a fan of drummer Steve Smith, but this DVD to see him (when they show him) playing live.

3.0 out of 5 stars The live cuts rock!! January 12, 2005
Format:DVD
This visual document of Journey during 1978-1997 is worth buying simply for the live cuts taken from the band's 1981 concert at Houston in Texas during the Escape tour, when they were really rocking.

Steve Perry is in fine voice on all the tracks from that gig, proving what an outstanding vocalist he is, whether in the studio or in concert. Check out "Open Arms" or "Who's Crying Now" to find out just how good the classic line up oif this band was on stage.

The live tracks from Journey's Raised On Radio tour of 1986 are good too, but the videos aren't too great, except for "When You Love A Woman", a terrific video from "Trial By Fire", the band's last album with Steve Perry. Beautiful visuals and great production values on this one.

The rest of the videos appear rather dated, though Steve Perry has to be one of the best and most emotional lip syncers in the business!!

Audio is simple two-channel, with no remixing or remastering for surround, and thus a bit disappointing and one of the reasons why this DVD only rates three stars. But the sound is smooth and the DVD sounds great when played live. Also disappointing is the lack of any bonus features.

It would be nice if Journey would now release the entire Houston concert on DVD with surround sound, or maybe one of the shows from the 1986 tour.

And as for all the critics who keep bad-mouthing Journey, ignore them. The catchy songs and the terrific playing just can't be put down for ever....

5.0 out of 5 stars JOURNEY ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!! February 2, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Very impressive dvd! It was comical watching how energetic and enthousiastic Steve Perry was running across the stage. The lighting was really crisp and clean and set the mood for the songs. This DVD includes all major hits with some exceptions like Ask the lonely, Chain Reaction, Only the Young, and Rubicon. Cant wait until the dvd comes out! Hopefully the raised on radio broadcast will be released! Steve Please sing again YOU ROCK AND ARE A TRUE LEGEND!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time November 11, 2004
Format:DVD
Take a trip back to the days when lead singers could actually sing.

These people who think the Augeri-led Journey is anything but a pathetic tribute band, a shell of what once was, are in major denial.

The critics who badmouthed bands like Journey, Foreigner and Styx...well, those who can't perform pontificate. No one listens to those critics anyway and they can't stand it ("How dare you NOT like what WE decree is good?").

The two bands I wish would reunite are Journey (WITH PERRY) and Three Dog Night.

I wish Journey would dump that Augeri guy (who needs recorded vocals at concerts) and go back to the REAL thing! With the crap passing for music these days, the reunited Perry-led Journey would be welcomed with...well, "Open Arms."
