Image of Journey


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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Expedition To Pre-Perry Journey September 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It is like jumping into completely different world. The difference between Journey until Next and after Infinity is not just a vocal change from Gregg Rolie to Steve Perry. The sound heard in Next is avant-garde vivid, mythic, dynamic rock we have probably never heard before. Rock music like no other. Spaceman is a most catchy song reminiscent of early Chicago rock. Here We Are after careful listening you will find that it serves somewhat prototype of later Journey hits such as Lights and Touching, Squeezing... if you just imagine that the arrangements are more upbeat. The opening riff of Next is really familiar for 80's Journey fans. I do not know if Journey fans that are used to Steve Perry vocal will like this one, but you will find it refreshing and invigorating in different manner after repeated listens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Journey's roots ... Before much Evolution. May 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For musicians this album will remind why Journey, who are best known nowadays for their pop ballads, still is and always was a group to be admired and respected. Steve Perry is not present on this album. (No disrespect intended) The dense, experimental arrangements and the sophisticated fusion influence is all here. Yu will recognize Greg Rolie's vocals from his appearance on Santana's 'Black Magic Woman' and later Journey material like 'Anytime', 'Feeling That Way' and 'Just The Same Way'. Neal Schon still plays the thick Santana tones and solos. When I listen to this record I can almost smell the 70s and San Francisco. If you can get the vinyl, this album belongs in your collection alonside the likes of Jefferson Starship, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and Janis Joplin.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Next" Is Awesome!!! True Classic Journey!!! March 10, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had to special order this CD a few years ago, and ever since I got it into my hot little hands, I've enjoyed this early Journey gem very much. This is the last album recorded by the band before Steve Perry joined. It is much like their second album "Look Into The Future" and it seems like Journey never runs out of new musical ideas to deliver to our ears. "Next" is every bit as unique as their debut, "Journey" and "Look Into The Future." Like with the first two albums, Journey engages in powerful, sizzling creativity, and brings us a whole new set of interesting, thuderous, beats which makes you want indulge in the excitement of air-drum, air-guitar, and air-keyboard playing. Neal Schon's guitar is just as mean as ever; full of life and bustling with activity. The fascinating, melodic charges come out at you, and are as vivid as ever. Aynsley Dunbar's drums are as rowdy and strong as all get out. Ross Valory still proves he's one of the best bass players around, and the voice of Gregg Rolie is a perfect fit as usual, gliding and roaring out with the amazing musical sounds. His keyboards are superb just like on the first two albums. He is never a disappointment. "Next" gives a hard-nosed, rough, rugged, melodic feel that is like no other. Songs like "Hustler," "I Would Find You," "Next" and "Karma" fall into this category especially. Highlights on the album are the catchy fun rock of "Spaceman," the dreamy, melodic, free-flowing "People," my favorite song; the edgy melodic guitar and keyboard clad "Next," and the swirly rapidness of "Nickel And Dime." This is a fun album with fun twists and catchy riffs. It is a partying rock album that will always be timeless!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, but highly recommended. June 11, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After the departure of George Tickner, Journey continued as a four-man unit. Steve Perry would not join for two more albums, and the time was the fusion era. Experimenting with many different ideas, Journey's third album lacks some of the punch of their self-titled debut, but the songwriting is just as well thought out. Gregg Rolie still sings like a master(on People, his voice bears a striking resemblance to John Lennon) and Neal Schon even contributes a lead vocal. For anyone who wishes to explore the evolution of a group who later became a vehicle for Steve Perry, this album will show a much different(and in my opinion, better) side of Journey.

4.0 out of 5 stars The only Journey I can listen to August 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I was recommended this recording by a fellow musician who insisted it wouldn't be anything like I imagined it. He was right! Steve Perry, who sounds like a victim of testicular rupture, has not yet joined Journey at this point, nor has Steve Smith (who's more than a pretty good drummer). Instead, the incredible Aynsley Dunbar lays down thunderous drums on this release, while Mr. Schon's guitar causes boils to form in your head. This is not a collection of corporate-hit rock songs like their later releases. This is a fantastic progressive-rock group playing complicated meters very well and a definite must-have for anyone interested in good musicianship. After listening to this, you'll wonder why they abandoned this approach in favor of the drek by which you identify this band today.

3.0 out of 5 stars A passable end to Chapter One... November 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Pre-Perry Journey had, ironically, two hurdles in front of them after 'Look Into The Future' - the difficult task of topping it and a lack of original ideas for new songs, the latter making the former almost impossible. As well, it was clear that Journey couldn't make a career with what they had. Greg Rolie's vocals were getting the job done, but he simply didn't have the range, musically or emotionally, to carry them any further. 'Next' seems to implicitly acknowledge that, as the vocals are mixed down and effected enough to be nothing more than a minor distraction from the music. The music is decent, if a little forced compared to their previous efforts, and well produced with a lot of energy behind it, but they rely heavily on the groove of each song to get them through. Unfortunately it works as often as it doesn't, and the overall impression is that they would be better off and probably happier playing exclusively in front of live audiences. Whether one appreciates the addition and talent of Steve Perry is irrelevant to the fact that he solved Journey's problems and led them to success they couldn't have imagined. Without him, I believe this would have been their last album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Journey Album Hands down = No Steve Perry
Greg Rolie takes the reins on this album - and it comes off like a rockin' Santana Album, but better. This was their first and last great album. Their 2nd recoding.
