  • If you can’t afford to replace all your old vinyl with the CD updates then this may be the compilation for you. It contains an interesting mix of old (pre-escape) and newer (escape-onwards) material, plus some that don’t appear to be included on other albums. I’ve never been a big fan of the pre “Escape” Journey material, but with multiple listenings one or two of the older tracks have become firmly integrated into my ‘favorites’ now…
    My main critisism of this album is the cover. Although it’s by the same artist as the Classic “Escape” album, it has a look of a hastily scibbled pre-production version, coloured-in with a *bumper pack* of felt tip pens. …very shoddy artwork indeed. yeuch!

    I wouldn’t call this a *must have* for Classic Journey fans, but if you’re that way inclined, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this 3-CD collection.

  • Arrived without a scratch.
    And these 3 cd’s simply makes you feel good, if you like Journey.
    A lot of interesting details to find in the booklet. Absolutely great stuff

  • Time3 is practically every popular Journey song from the very first album to at the time, the most recent “Raised on Radio” although the booklet mentions “Trial By Fire” and “Arrival”. It includes anywhere from 3 tracks to 7 from each album up until Raised on Radio. All the tracks are remastered and it includes 10 previously unreleased tracks from various points in the history of the band which later will appear on the re-release of Albums such as “Escape”, “Frontiers”, “Departure”, “Raised on Radio”, Etc. The booklet is full of History, Pictures, Discography, and my favorite part of the booklet, song information on the songs and what they’re about. The only flaw about this compilation is that it feels very out dated which I wounder if they will possibly release another Journey Compilation that will feature everything from the very beginning to The most recent Revelation Album. I wouldn’t be suprised to see a compilation like that within the next 5-10 years. Overall, I recommend it for any Journey fans.

  • A very good boxset. some people might not want all the early stuff.then there is a 2 disk version called essentials,

    Cd one is the weakest of the three here as it contains many of the bands early recordings when they were more of a jazz rock type band but there are some stand out tracks such as Anyway You Want It and the brilliant Patiently.

    Cd two is where it really takes off. There are half a dozen live tracks here from the album Captured which are superb and the CD finishes with 7 tracks from Escape which are all brilliant even though now they are nearly 25 years old.

    CD three continues with more excellent material my favourites being Seperate Worlds and the gorgeous After The Fall.

    If you are new to Journey or replacing your old LPs this is very highly recommended.

  • For its time Times3 was a very good box set. The booklet explaining the history of Journey alone is worth the money. The B-sides included: For You, Good Times, La Raza del Sol, Only Solutions, Liberty, All That Really Matters, With a Tear and Into Your Arms. “For You” featured a lead singer {Fleischman} who’s almost a Perry Clone. Fleischman wrote Wheel in the Sky and the song Perry sung when he auditioned for Journey. “Good Times” was Perry’s tribute to Sam Cooke that never made any album. La Raza del Sol, Only Solutions and Liberty were out-takes from the Frontier era. Of those songs, Liberty, was by far my favorite out-take. Extended, I think it could have been a big hit. “All That Really Matters” is the lone song from the bands latter era where Perry isn’t singing lead vocals. The final two songs “With A Tear” and “Into Your Arms” were meant for the Raised on Radio. The most disappointing part of this Box Set is Perry did not return to add lyrics to these two unfinished songs. They were simply added as insturmentals but when I hear them I always feel that they were meant to be. I also really enjoyed the live version of I’ll Be Alright Without You. Of course this box sex excludes material from Trial By Fire because that album was released after the box set was made.
