The BEST from Journey for a long time! Much better than their prior release Revelation. Classic album. I can't decide right now which one is the best track, all songs are GREAT!... And may I add, the new singer is beyond awesome!!

Laying aside prejudices, this is a 'must buy' for old and new Journey peeps and Gleeks. I've been playing it from start to finish trying to find out which would be my favorite of all...BUT I do love them all, with their varying melodies, dark and edgy, but holding on to the message of love, hope, and peace, amazing riffs, drums, keyboards, AND soaring vocals. Awesome. I give it a 10 out of 10.
I knew this album was going to be a departure from their previous recent efforts. Ever since Perry had left the band, Journey was struggling to find a new "voice", instead trying to find a replacement for the legendary Perry. But with Arnel Pineda, they've got a bona fide new voice that can take the band beyond its tried and true formula of the past and into new artistic territory. After such a long history of success basically following the same musical formulas, I applaud the band for staking out new artistic territory. I also think that this is the rockin' album that Neal Schon has wanted to make with Journey for a long time. It's sonically rich with his playing, while Jonathan Cain's keyboards are more of a background embellishment on most songs. You have to listen to this album a few times to really appreciate it, since it's quite a departure from the usual Journey formula, but the rewards are rich and point to a promising artistic future for this long-lived classic rock institution.
I've been listening to this album front to back for a couple days now and lovin' it. I'm a long time Journey fan and this album really showcases the musicianship in this band. It's also an album and not just a couple singles with some filler. I still can't decide which are my favorite songs yet. If you're a Journey fan who's favorite album in Raised on Radio, this might not be a album you will appreciate as this is a ROCK album and not pop, but give it a listen it might change your mind!
I've always perferred the rockin' Journey over the sappy ballads. Wheel in the Sky was the first song I heard and why I fell in love with Journey. I could tolerate the slow stuff but I will take this style cd hands down. Arnel's voice and passion has improved and the rest of the band as you know need no improvement! Shon is King..............GREAT CD!!!
