About the Album:
Journey’s third album maintained the same lineup as their sophomore effort, but they “began to break away from the jazzy progressive rock inclinations that dominated their first two albums.” AMG Still, “the group lacks focus and a pop sensibility, and its attempts at straight-ahead pop/rock suffer considerably as a result.” AMG This would end up being Gregg Rolie’s last album as the primary lead singer as Journey would draft Steve Perry for the next album and their commercial success would eventually skyrocket.
“Songs include the opening, moody number, Spaceman, as well as standout rocker Hustler, the odd timing instrumental Nickel and Dime, and the epic I Would Find You. The instrumental entitled ‘Cookie Duster’ was listed in very early pressings of the album, though not actually included on the pressings, and then not listed on the cover art at all. Many fans feel this song is one of their best instrumentals and should have been included. It was later released on their Time³ compilation.” JM
