  • One would think that after a ten year break certain bands would find it hard to make a decent comeback. Journey not only succeeds in their comeback, they do so with a grammy nomination and an album that I found to be very satisfying to the ear. Trial By Fire, released ten years after Raised On Radio proves that Journey is in fact one of the greatest bands in history. Steve Perry’s vocals are absolutely fantastic as always, especially on “When You Love A Woman,” which was nominated for a Grammy Award. Jonathan Cain’s keyboards and background vocals are amazing, and Neal Schon – what is there to say but he is one of the truly amazing guitarists of our time. Ross Valory on bass, and Steve Smith returning on drums round out the most recognizable Journey lineups, and in my opinion the best.
    The album is more of a subdued one, more slow-paced love songs such as “Still She Cries” and “When I Think Of You” highlight the album. However, it is “When You Love A Woman” that is the true gem of this record. The first time I heard this song I immediately fell in love with it, probably one of the greatest love songs I have ever heard. I would recommend Trial By Fire to any Journey fan, or any music fan for that matter. Journey is by far one of the best bands of all time, and this record shows why.
