Release Date: 1996 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Want an enthralling experience with San Fransisco's greatest rock band? Here lies your key within.

Picture a San Fransisco band that formed out of Carlos Santana's realms of perfect Mexican heritage. You start off playing psychedelic Chicano rock, and then you hire a man named Steve Perry to orate your lyrics for you. Mr. Perry has a voice that can turn Sinatra into a Detroit Juggalo by comparison. If you have heard any of their anthems sung by him, you would know that any track he touches turns into molten gold. "Don't Stop Believin'", "Lights", "Any Way You Want It"; These are all anthems of the cassette tape generations. Tensions arose by 1986, and like
molecules,
glasses,
and your parents' marriage in the 80's,
they broke up in 1992.
Suddenly, a message came from the ether.
"You Can't Tame the Lion".
Recruiting Silverchair producer Kevin Shirley for this 1996 comeback, Journey was in its finest form.
Look at the cover art for further proof. We see a cat-head euphemism drag a baby across a beach to a tree that looks like background props at American Eagle, all while Native Hawaiian men pour water from the sky. Not since the days of Lao Tzu have I been so enthralled by a picture.
Truly beautiful music and artwork.

Unfortunately, Steve Perry quit Journey, and now they have a Filipino music superstar at their helm.
Crack a 40 to this album and enjoy the majesty of Journey.


Namaste.
