Walks Like A Lady. By now, the most rebellious element, British citizen Ainsley Dunbar had either quit or most likely got fired, apparently for off-stage antics, like screwing groupies unfortunately, I'm not kidding here, that's how sad things were.
Hang that man by the balls!!!! The two Santana survivors Rollie and Schon are obviously hanging on, content on their wallets finally getting a fortunate twist of fate.
This goes double for Schon with whom Perry found a songwriting partnership at the expense of Rollie, so it's no surprise that the best two tracks of the album are the two Greg got to write.
Pompously titled Departure with the date outlined and the horizontal 8 into an infinity sign, the group set out indeed to beat all records of bad taste in Album) airwaves and actively contributing to moronize rock crowds Good Morning Girl - Journey - Departure (CD the world with tasteless Pontiac Trans-Am hood artworks and cheap sleazy cheesy and moronic ballads that will brainwash tons of so-called adults.
And to show that Perry is the new master, the group starts on two of the most numbskulling hits they've written the rocker Any Way You Want It and the cheesy soul-ish Walks Like A Lady Rollie's Hammond is the only good thing about this trackRollie's only shot at lead vocals on this stinker of Album) album is a weak Someday Soon, with Perry sabotaging him in background vocals.
Best forgotten. An intriguing Hammond and hope- inducing opening People And Places, but all hopes are quickly deceived as the track turns into a boring ballad that's probably the album's best track and impeccably played.
The only other track approaching this semi-interesting status aside the short instrumental title track is I'm Crying, with all histrionics out. The album continues in a typical AOR fashion that quickly irks the proghead unlike he likes a numb skull with shrieky vocals, harmonica Precious Time, courtesy of Rollie and guitars and the track succeed to each other, some obvious fillers Line Of Fire, Good Morning Girl and Homemade Loveothers being Journey semi-classics Where Were You and Stay Awhilebut it is mostly a listless affair, where boredom seeps through every pore out of the speakers.
Yikes, why didn't we think of that ourselves??!! Don't get me wrong here, Departure is a very professional album with impeccable execution, outstanding production and everything else, but it reeks industrial standards, something to which I've grown very quickly allergic to. This album is spectacularily more enjoyable than its predecessor, thanks to some thoughtful use of dynamics, Album), and style. Yes, there's filler, but in general one will come away remembering the big guitar, soaring vocals, and smooth organ sounds.
Rolie's keyboards give us some varied sounds this time around although his few vocals are more mediocre than everand even jams with a harmonica in the uplifting Precious Time. Schon's guitar playing is first-rate, especially in the opener and the bluesy I am Cryin'. There is a high level of energy and memorable vocal deliveries from Perry, whose shrill wails are toned down a bit here.
All in all, a good one for fans of classic rock; just don't go expecting anything too deep There's Neal Schon's screaming guitar solo, a staple of Journey's sound by this time. Judging from how many times I've heard it and played it, I'm sorry to saythis may just be the most covered Journey song by bar bands across America.
It sounds completely cheesy and sometimes makes me think of Uncle Jesse from Full House- not a good thing. Rolie's mellow, deeper voice juxtaposed with Perry's higher register just seems to work, and I sometimes wonder how Journey would have sounded had Rolie remained involved probably not much different than they did, but subtleties can be important. The second half of the song is completely different from the beginning, rocking harder, and of course, there's Schon wailing away in the frets closest to his pickups.
It ends with the spacey music of the beginning. Schon takes a back seat for once and lets Rolie cut loose on harmonica. Perry actually doesn't sound great here, cutting his syllables off Album) making himself sound somewhat intelligible. Schon does his thing during the instrumental break, even employing some two-handed tapping, but even still it's boring despite its volume.
It's a nice mid-tempo song, even if not very memorable. I honestly can never remember a thing I heard from this song once it is over, perhaps with good reason.
Schon has to drop in one last irrelevant solo before the album is over. Journey is a clearly controversial band here on Prog Archives and it is probably agreed by all that at least some of their albums lie wholly outside the scope of what can be called progressive rock.
However, it is equally clear that some other albums of theirs can be called progressive in some sense or other, or at least that they bear some relation to Prog.
It is usually agreed that somewhere along the line, Journey sold out and left their progressive aspirations behind and ventured into more commercial areas of music. But the question is where to draw the line. Other Prog fans those who prefer the harder rocking and more melodious sides of Prog would rather favour albums like Infinity and perhaps even the present one.
Personally, I lean toward the second camp, holding Infinity up as my favourite Journey album. On that album, the band maintained some of their progressive aspects and great guitar work, while combining it with good song writing and the excellent and distinctive lead vocals of Steve Perry.
But after Infinity, the band started to drift further towards radio friendly Rock continuing through to the end of the 80's I have not heard all these albums yet, though. But while Infinity is the better album, in my opinion, Departure still has several nice moments proving to me that Journey should not be completely dismissed just yet.
The chorus of the opening track can admittedly be rather tedious, but the verses are fine. People And Places is my favourite track on this album. Precious Time is another fine track that has traces of American Folk and blues featuring harmonica and, again, great vocals and guitar work. Where Were You is another rather tedious song, particularly the lyrics are hard to tolerate.
