2 stars A markedly more accessible and song-oriented album than its predecessor, slipping down a mark for me due to its emphasis on lyrical verse and choruses rather than creative musicianship from the fine instrumentalists. There are several catchy melodies here-- would be FM anthems that slipped through the cracks (think Boston/Kansas)-- but little that will perk the pretentious ears of a prog-loving listener. Schon's guitar work remains excellent (especially in the monstrous title track), but is less varied and not very ambitious. Rolie's singing takes more than its share of the spotlight.

I have fun with this album because I am Journey die-hard that fell in love with their early stuff when I was 15; it has a few memorable guitar bits and sing-alongs, but non-fans will likely be left wanting something more.

Songwriting: 2 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 2 Style/Emotion/Replay: 2
