Top Ten Greatest Journey Albums

The Top Ten

1 Escape Escape

This masterpiece deserves the first place. I love many Journey albums but Escape is unbeatable classic - Alexandr

This Album contains there #1 best ballad open arms. Don't stop beileving, anyway u want it, and open arms is what made the band one of the best

Don't Stop Believin', Stone In Love, Who's Crying Now and Open Arms are all on Journey's greatest hits album, and are undoubtedly four of their best works. Also, Mother, Father is my all time favorite Journey tune.
E5C4P3 is their only album to make it to number one, and it does deserve that position, and also my vote.
This is also Journey's first album with pianist Jonathan Cain!

all of their great power ballads are on this. - schwanie

Powerful music-- emotional-- full of feeling. The public bought this album and drove the songs to high on the charts.

Men the song "The Edge Of The Blade" ITS INSANE! I fully recommend this album!

Journey were never rocked harder than in this epic 1983 album!

3 Infinity Infinity

Steve Perry never sang better than he did in this album, making it a clear winner, escape is close though

Every song on here is amazing

Simply the best

4 Departure Departure

Departure has the best album cover of any band ever! Mouse & Kelley outdone themselves on the art! Also best song with "Any way you want it"

Escape loses because open arms is on it. Departure doesn't have a bad adding on it.

Solid throughout. "I'm Cryin" demonstrates the peak of Schon/Perry interplay.

My favorite journey lp. I had the 8 track and cacett and cd. Love it... Really miss Steve Perry. Not bought a cd since he left.

5 Evolution Evolution

Really disagree with Escape being the greatest Journey album. It's number one because of the top ten hits it produced without a doubt. But song for song Evolution is arguably one of the most brilliantly written rock albums regardless of any other definitions. This should be a clear number one.

It's better than trial by fire, raised on radio and frontiers.

6 Raised on Radio Raised on Radio

Absolutely their best work. Every song on this album is an unquestionable testimony to the talent of Steve Perry. His long absence from music and performing has been a great loss to the music world and all his devoted fans around the world. I constantly play this particular album, because I miss "The Voice" so much.

This album is definitely my favorite. The songs are wonderful, and Steve Perry's performance has an emotional depth that is memorable and soulful.

The best album from journey. A master piece. Nothing like Steve Perry. ┬▒Best voice ever, nothing could compera to him.

This album is my favorite.every song is great and perry was flawless in every singing voice ever.i can understand how the classic albums beat out this one for ranking.but its still up there with the best.

7 Captured Captured

Best live CD ever recorded, in my opinion. Perry hits every single note clearly and precisely, Schon's playing is great, and the interaction between the band and the crowd is amazing. Overall, my favorite Journey album!

8 Dream After Dream Dream After Dream
9 Trial By Fire Trial By Fire

This is one of Journey's best works in my opinion. With love ballads such as "When You Love A Woman", "When I Think of You", "Easy to Fall" or "Don't be Down on Me Baby" or faster-paced rock songs like "Castles Burning", this album is classic Journey. And Steve Perry's magnificent voice truly soars in this album. This should be in the top 5.

I loved this album, because Steve Perry's voice seemed richer, more mature like a fine wine. His performance on "When you love a woman" and "It's the rain" was so emotional.

This is easily the best Journey album. Every song is a winner, the musicianship is first-class, Steve Perry's vocals are on fire and the mix is the best I've ever heard on any album

I loved the musical direction the band took on this album. Shame this was the last time this legendary line-up existed.

10 Journey Journey

Escape is clearly the best ever but this one comes next. As far as progressive rock goes this one holds up well. Rolie is underrated seeing as how he was an integral member of Santana as well. Topaz is a fantastic track and so is Of a Lifetime.

I can't decide, I have to vote for their greatest hits album because I love EVERY SONG FROM JOURNEY, I wish they made an album with every song they made on it so I could vote for that! "PEOPLE AND PLACES" IS ONE OF THEIR BEST SONGS BUT IT'S UNDERRATED!
