If the Greatest Hits album wasn't quite enough Journey for you, but you don't want to go out and buy all of the compact discs, this is a good "greatest hits and then some" CD. This album came out before any of the post Steve Perry vocalists joined, and, not surprisingly, doesn't feature anything pre Steve Perry either. That's probably a good thing since the songs are all of the same "type". Since I'm a diehard fan, I would recommend just buying all seven (yes, there were only seven) of the Journey albums that featured Steve Perry, but it looks like about half of that (32 songs) are here on a nice double compact disc, so maybe this one will do you just fine. For the most part, the first disc has the hits, the second has the also-rans.
