1 stars A Journey to Escape from the norm...

...or not.

The Good: Just two songs that really stand out here. The slightly underrated Mother, Father and the grossly over-commercialised Don't Stop Believing.

The Bad: 100% generic.

The Verdict: Despite its label as prog related Escape is essentially just a pop-rock album with some well written, catchy tunes. I'm not familiar with the rest of Journey's back catalogue, but I'm almost certain this album wasn't responsible for their inclusion in the archives. But taken for what it is Escape stands above its counterparts and with a lineup including legendary vocalist Steve Perry and the prolific Steve Smith on the drums it has gotten its fair share of listens over the years.

Starhammer | 1/5 |
