3 stars How do you review an album that you really like, but isn't all that progressive? Infinity is a really fine rock record, and was hugely popular back when I was in junior high school. However, Journey had dropped just about all of their progressive tendencies by the time Infinity was released. My favorite tracks are probably "Feelin' That Way/Anytime" and "Wheel in the Sky".

The performances throughout the album are excellent, which should not be surprising considering the band members' backgrounds. Steve Perry can definitely sing, and Neal Schon shows once again what an excellent guitarist he is. I would rather listen to this than many of Styx's records or anything by Boston, to name two bands that are often compared to Journey. This album is certainly a whole lot better compositionally that what came after it!. Infinity's over-familiarity and lack of progressivenes decreases its rating for Prog Archives purposes. My final rating is going to be 3 stars - a really good rock record, but not a priority if progressiveness is really what you're looking for.
