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

Listening to this album brings back some memories.
G. T. Mashburn
Don't get me wrong all the songs on here are great -- I just wished they saved room for some classic tracks that I feel are sorely absent.
Tasken Lander
I highly recommend The Essential Journey to those looking for a 2-CD collection of Journey's catalog.

You would think that they could get it right with two discs to work with this time, but "The Essential Journey" is only partially deserving of its title. True, all the big hits are included (the 15 that appeared on the original "Greatest Hits" are also here), and justice is restored to previously shunned favorites like "Stone In Love", "The Party's Over (Hopelessly In Love)", "After The Fall", "Still They Ride", "Just The Same Way" and "Escape". But there are still a bunch of greats that were left off in favor of lame "what-the-hell-is-this-one-here-for" type songs. I mean, since when are "The Eyes of A Woman", "Mother, Father", and "Something To Hide" considered essential, while high-airplay singles like "Walks Like A Lady", "Why Can't This Night Go On Forever", "Suzanne" (a Top 20 Hit!) and "City of Angels" are not? Not only that, but even though this collection rightfully includes the classic "Anytime", it does not include the song "Feeling That Way" which almost always preceeds it when heard on the radio. For Journey fans, this would be like Queen putting "We Are The Champions" on a best-of without "We Will Rock You" right before it! Same goes for "Stay Awhile" (which admittedly sounds a lot like "Lights"), which was always played right after "Good Morning Girl" on the radio. "Good Morning Girl" is here, "Stay Awhile" is not, and GMG seems lost without its companion. Don't get me wrong, I do like the songs "Something To Hide" and "The Eyes of A Woman" a lot, but I think they should've been shelved in favor of better-known fare. At any rate, this is definitely the best Journey compilation out there (better than the spotty "Time3"), but I sometimes wonder what the people in charge of song selection are thinking when they put these things together.

Growing up in the 80's, I was always aware of Journey, but I never really took notice of them until the mid-90's, when I was in college. I never realized how many hits these guys cranked out over the years until I happened upon one of their greatest hits albums in a friend's dorm room. He had to leave for the evening and I stayed behind to play video games. I put the disc on and the memories began to flood back to me. I instantly remembered all of the songs as they played over the speakers. I was caught up in the old days, and I was loving it.

This album, "The Essential Journey," includes all of the hits from the album my friend had and many other songs that radio fans such as myself may not have been aware of. The first disc is the best in my opinion, because it includes the bulk of their hit material. The second disc is good as well because, for the most part, it introduces fans like myself to a side of Journey they weren't aware of.

This is a good compilation to pick up if you love to sing along with Steve Perry while you're cruising down the highway. Obvious hits like "Lights," "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'," and later hits like "When You Love A Woman" are all here. The power ballad of all power ballads, "Open Arms," and its closest competitor, "Faithfully," in this collection as well.

Highly recommended.

This is not a bad album, but it is not all that great either. If I were a casual fan or someone new to the group then this would be the album to buy (over their single disc GREATEST HITS or TIME CUBED box set).
For a few bucks more you get all the songs from GREATEST HITS plus some "Essential" tracks like: CHAIN REACTION, AFTER THE FALL, STILL THEY RIDE, STONE IN LOVE, THE PARTY'S OVER, JUST THE SAME WAY & ANYTIME.
However, there are some "Essential" MIA's like: SUZANNE, WHY CAN'T THIS NIGHT GO ON FOREVEER, DIXIE HIGHWAY, WALKS LIKE A LADY, TOO LATE & FEELING THAT WAY.
As always not everyone will be happy with the song selection so accept what you're getting here. ESSENTIAL JOURNEY is a much better compilation than GREATEST HITS for not much more $$$, but it is no substitute for owning all the Steve Perry Journey discs as I do. This is still the best disc available for casual fans with a lot of their better songs.
