Subject: "Journey's Greatest Hits" Album Review

This album, "Journey's Greatest Hits," will forever be among rock's best! It's the first Journey album I ever owned.

The soaring vocals and blistering guitar on "Only The Young," show Steve Perry and Neal Schon at their best.

The great meaning behind "Don't Stop Believin'" is shown by Steve Perry's soulful vocals and Neal Schon's guitar riff at the beginning of the tune.

"Wheel In The Sky" shows great vocals from Steve Perry.

"Faithfully" is, by far, Journey's, as well as Steve Perry's, best songs. It has great guitar, great vocal and great piano.

"I'll Be Alright Without You" shows a soulful Perry croon really well, and I really like Neal's guitar solo.

"Anyway You Want It" has great vocal and guitar.

"Ask The Lonely" has great vocal and guitar.

"Who's Crying Now?" has great vocal and great piano.

"Seperate Ways (Worlds Apart)" really rocks. Jonathan's keyboard work is OK, but I really like Steve's singing and Neal's guitar playing.

"Lights" is a really good example of Steve Perry's vocal ability. I really like the way he says "Charms" in the bridge. "It's sad...oh, there's been mornings out on the road without you...without your chahahahahms!" It's great.

"Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'" is a great blues. I love the rythmn.

"Open Arms," aside from "Faithfully," is probably the best ballad. I love Steve's vocals and Jon's piano playing.

"Girl Can't Help It" is OK. It's from "Raised On Radio," which I didn't think was that great, but Steve can really get that vocal range up.

"Send Her My Love" is a great mid-tempo ballad. I love the vocals, guitar and piano riffs.

And last, but not least, "Be Good To Yourself," is a great rocker to finish off the album, but it isn't one of my all-time favorites. It has great vocal and great guitar.

Overall, "Journey's Greatest Hits" is a fabulous album. It's a really great starter for someone traveling the "real" Journey for his or her very first time. It's a wonderful musical road trip that truly is Steve "The King of Rock 'N Roll" Perry At His Best! Trust me! You'll love this Journey so much that you be wondering, "Elvis, who? Steve Perry's the 'real' king here!"
