3 stars Third release of Journey from 1977 and the final one as main voice of Gregg Rolie. On the next albums he done some vocal parts on some as main voice, but was replaced by the excellent Steve Perry who's voice was much better for thier new aproach AOR sound. Nevertheless Rolie's voice was very strong, rough with some very strong moments on the first 3 albums, more toward blues with some rock leanings. This third album keeps that rock with blusy and jazzy leanings atmosphere but i don't think is better than previous two, the best they ever done. Some of the pieces fon Next are real treat like:I Would Find You, the instrumental one Nickel And Dime, the rest are ok, even in places quite strong but not outstanding. So an good album with good moments, strong keyboard interplays made by Gregg Rolie and fine riffs and arrangements made by the main man of theband Neal Schon. All in all a good album, the final one from the first era, the next ones are more AOr and comercial attitude. 3 stars, good but not outstanding like previouses two.
