Journey Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

On their eponymous debut album, Journey were still trying to find their signature sound. They relied too much on prog rock, filling the album with meandering jazz-rock instrumentals that never quite catch fire. Furthermore, their pop songs are ill-formed and lack hooks -- in short, they are too mainstream for the progressive audience and too unfocused for the pop audience.
