Journey - Greatest Hits Music Review

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

Journey created a series of powerhouse songs involving soaring lyrics, great harmonies and great guitar work. I love pretty much every song on this CD.

"Only the Young"? Yup, that was a great youth anthem. "Don't Stop Believin'"? That one's easy - I used to play that on the piano all the time. It's the perfect pick-me-up song to say that there is always a chance for what you want.

"Wheel in the Sky" had great power to it, and was fun to dance to. "Faithfully" was a true love ballad, and I still remember the music video with the band slugging through one concert after another. Yes, being a popular band might seem all fun - but I can only imagine how it can wear you down.

"I'll be allright without you" helps to get you going again after the inevitable heartache hits you in the stomach. "Any Way you Want it" gets back into a dance track to have some fun.

I admit that "Ask the Lonely" isn't one of my favorites in the world, but even that isn't bad in any way. Then we quickly move on to "Who's Crying Now" which was another song I played on the piano, it helps to get some of that angst out of you when you're sad. Same thing for "Separate Ways" with that cool intro theme - sometimes love just doesn't work out.

But as if we haven't had enough, we hit "Lights" which is one of my ultimate favorite songs. The ballad has it all - great lyrics, great imagery, great feeling and melody. I just love it. "So you think you're lonely? Well, my friend, I'm lonely too ..." It's like the two of you are walking along the street, sharing your thoughts.

And yes, another hit follows right on its heels, the sultry, strutty "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'". This is just an amazing song. This is the song you sing at the top of your lungs, as you drive your car down the road, after breaking up with your ex.

It keeps going on. Every song on here, pretty much, is a winner. They each touch a moment in your life.

Highly recommended!
