3 stars Forth album of Journey from 1978 and the first one with excellent vocalist Steve Perry behind the microphone. By the time they released this album called Infinity the band stepped in a new period, the comercial period, with many hits and million albums saled worldwide. If the previouses albums sold quite poorly this thing will change next year, in 1978. After three albums that were considered dissapointing, but were in fact Journey's most progressive ones from the entire discography and why not the best, Journey hired a better vocalist - Steve Perry. The results were immediately felt, the album was sold in over one million copies, more than the previous albums altogether. But the sound changes were almost dramatic. From that jazz-fusion progressive music they turned in an AOR - hard rock band, not far from what FOREIGNER, STYX or BOSTON played during the same period. Some great pieces are too on this albuym like: the hit Lights, the smooth Patiently - excellent vocal parts made by Steve Perry and a classic Journey tune, sung on every concert Wheel In The Sky, the rest are ok. I considered this album as a good one, with high and lows, but i prefer the previouses ones with more jazzy aproach. 3 stars, good album, but no more than that.
