Steve Perry takes effective control of the band on this album and he is the main instructor behind it. He fires bassist Ross Valory and drummer Steve Smith and the remaining trio (Perry, Schon, Cain) completes the record with session musicians. The music direction, the production, the title, even the art work has something to do with Perry and his view of changing Journey's sound. This record signals the beginning of the end for Journey. It may not by Journey's best album but for someone who likes the 80s era of the band will definitely find nice songs in here. Recommendations: "Be Good To Yourself", "I'll Be Alright Without You", "Once You Love Somebody", Girl Can't Help It", "Positive Touch"
