  • Released in 1981,”Escape” rose to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart on the strength of its monster Top 10 hits “Don’t Stop Believin”,”Who’s Crying Now” and the perfect 80’s power ballad “Open Arms”(#2 for 6 weeks),selling over 9 millon copies in the process.It all makes sense because it pefectly symbolizies Journey’s brand of melodic AOR rock,with great rockers like “Stone In Love”(a classic-rock radio fav),”Lay It Down” and “Escape” meshing well with slow songs like “Still They Ride”(a minor Top 20 hit) and “Mother,Father”.The 2006 reissue pairs the 1996 remaster with 4 bonus tracks(the fusion-like B-side “La Raza Del Sol” and the “Live In Houston” takes of the aftermentioned Top 10 biggies,plus a cool booklet containing photos and tour dates from the “Escape” period.Essential!!
