Album Review

Frontiers managed to give Journey four Top 40 hits, with "After the Fall" and "Send Her My Love" both reaching number 23, "Faithfully" at number 12, and "Separate Ways" peaking at number eight — the same amount that 1981's Escape brandished. While they tried to use the same musical recipe as Escape, Frontiers comes up a little short, mainly because the keyboards seem to overtake both Neal Schon's guitar playing and Steve Perry's strong singing. An overabundance of Jonathan Cain's synth work cloaks the quicker tunes and seeps into the ballads, slightly widening the strong partnership of Perry and Schon. "Faithfully" tried to match the powerful beauty of "Open Arms," and while it's a gorgeous ballad, it just comes inches away from conjuring up the same soft magic. "Separate Ways" grabs attention right off the bat with stinging synthesizer and a catchy guitar riff, and "Send Her My Love" emphasizes Perry's keen ability to pour his heart out. The rest of the songs on the album lack the warmth that Journey is famous for, especially in their mix of fervor and intimacy shown on this album's predecessor. [The 2006 reissue of Frontiers has four bonus tracks: "Only the Young" from the Vision Quest soundtrack, "Ask the Lonely" from the Two of a Kind soundtrack, "Only Solutions" from the soundtrack to Tron, and "Liberty," a rare song that first surfaced on the Time 3 box set.]

Customer Reviews

JOURNEY “FRONTIERS” – The Best Album from One of Rock’s Greatest Bands!

While Journey’s ESCAPE may have wider public acclaim, FRONTIERS is my favorite Journey album of all time. Containing radio staples like “Separate Ways”, “Send Her My Love”, and “Faithfully”, FRONTIERS also explores less radio-friendly, harder-edged musical territory than previous or subsequent albums. Fan favorites “Chain Reaction” and “Edge of the Blade”, as well as the moody "Troubled Child" and the title track are all integral to FRONTIERS, and now Journey has finally added back originally-cut hits “Only the Young” and “Ask the Lonely” as bonus tracks. Also included are the Perry/Schon gem “Liberty” and a slightly different version of “Only Solutions”. An unbeatable song line-up, combined with new 2006 re-mastering, make Journey “FRONTIERS” the best re-release of 2006!

STEVE'S BEST SOUND EVER

I DO NOT agree with the review given by itunes to this album when says that "Jonathan Cain's Keyboards took over Neil Schon's beauty Leads and Steve Perry's AWESOME voice! In fact, this is the album where Steve Sounds BEST! Frontiers is Journey's best sound quality work in the 80s, and of course, you hear more keyboards and synths than usual, that is because Journey was moving along the whole music culture and if you pay atention to that, you will notice that the 80s was the Keyboards and Lead guitar best era! of history.

The iTunes reviewer was on crack for this one...

What a total tool! This reminds me of that February 2008 Maxim review of the Black Crowes Warpaint album where the reviewer never even heard the album. So, um, did you? Did you actually listen to this album? Frontiers is BY FAR Journey's best album. If you couldn't hear the guitar or Steve's voice, maybe you should check your speaker connections. This album rocks! Its has the best song writing, best melodies, best playing, best sound of any album in Journey's library. Hey, iTunes...Fire that reviewer. Total tool.

During their initial 14 years of existence (1973-1987), Journey altered their musical approach and their personnel extensively while becoming a top touring and recording band. The only constant factor was guitarist Neal Schon, a music prodigy who had been a member of Santana in 1971-1972. The original unit, which was named in a contest on KSAN-FM in San Francisco, featured Schon, bassist Ross Valory, drummer Prairie Prince (replaced by Aynsley Dunbar), and guitarist George Tickner (who left after...
