4.0 out of 5 stars Expedition To Pre-Perry Journey, September 11, 2003
This review is from: Next (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.

It's the link from 'Old Journey {the first two} to Perry-Cain {or as some say, "Candy-Cane"}.
Things became very different after this, and the playing and song structure became a lot more...well the word, simple does come to mind.

For Perry yes, but not Cain. Rolie was still there on keyboards and occasional vocals for Infinity, Evolution, and Departure. Cain didn't arrive until 1981 with Escape.

And Rolie also is on "Captured," Journey's live 1981 LP recorded on the 1980 tour.

I see. Well, being that it's from the 1980 tour, it makes sense that Rolie would still be there.

4 stars?? Boo.. 5 stars all the way. Journey actually ROCKED at this point in their career long before they went top 40..
