    This album is a must listen for all you progressive rock fans! The sugar level of musicianship in itself is enough to buy this record. These guys know how to play and know how to play together. One of my all-time favorites. Those who know, know... Those who don’t should buy this record. Take a listen!

    From the opening riff of ‘Of A Lifetime” to the jam that ends “Mystery Mountain” this album is all-around great. “Topaz” reminds me so much of Santana and “Kohoutek” is pure furious. Also, “In My Lonely Feeling” works well with “Conversations”. “To Play Some Music” points toward their poppy future. But the stars of the show are “Of A Lifetime” and “Mystery Mountain”. Both are trips and have great jams- serves as the perfect intro to this album and early Journey. Would recommend this to anyone who is into prog rock/jazz fusion! 10/10!
  • Will the real Journey please stand up

    Thank you for this download. This is the Journey I fell in love with. Listen to Topaz then listen to the newer dreg. Sure the new stuff has hooks, but no roots. Listen and learn kids. This is the real, first Journey. You are a Space man !
  • A magnificant piece of music!

    I greatly respect and cherish this album. However, I have been seeing other reviews that hate on the era of Journey that formed when Steve Perry joined 3 years after this release. There is no "real" Journey. There are different eras (1973-77, 1978-87, 1996-98, 2001-07, 07-present) and most of them sound different, musically. But there is no "real era" of Journey. It was Journey without Steve Perry, it was Journey with him. I must say that I respect all eras...I think all of them had a lot of good music to offer. If you consider yourself a Journey fan but have never heard anything before Perry joined, give this (and their next 2 after this) a try. You might come to appreciate the different sounds the band had before Perry joined. If you dislike the music Perry had to offer with them, stick with this. And if you're musically open-minded (like me :) then keep on rockin to both sounds! If you just don't feel like buying the whole thing, at least buy "Of a Lifetime." That is one of the best pieces of music that I have ever heard! It is 6:50 but it only feels like 2 minutes! Hope this review helped for new listeners :)

    This was my intro to Journey back in the day and was blown away by it. Whoever reviewed this has no clue as do most critics but you have to earn a living somehow I guess. (lol) Nothing against Steve Perry, but this album will be liked by real music fans, not teen boys looking to get laid by trying to sound like Perry. (oh wait, that was 1980...lol) And to the pinhead who compared Perry to Plant and Mercury....REALLY?????
  • Both versions of Journey are great

    I was raised mostly on stuff like the Who, Led Zeppelin, etc. so I also grew up with hit maker Journey. Over the years, I've been drawn to prog more than anything. I have to say that this could be my favorite album by them. Funny part is that Journey and Rush both started around the same time and hit the gold mine in 1981. What happened after Escape and Moving Pictures is history.
  • Journey in Marx Meadows

    By Milpitas Metiche
    To really hear this album you need to visualize Journey playing outdoors at Marx Meadows in Golden Gate Park before the album was released. The sound is fully amplified, the ground is shaking and the crowd is much more engrossed than the insipid types you'll find wandering at Outside Lands or Coachella. The fullness of sound outdoors was the reason for being present. I never did like Journey after they lost their way from these free unannounced concerts which were put in play by what were the leaders of the medical marijuana movement.

    I agree with 2drum4's review. This was their best album ever! 'Of a Lifetime" really caught my ear. I never liked them after they, like so many other bands at that time, went commercial. In the process of going commercial, the creativity goes out the window and the music suffers.

    Gosh this brings back memories - probably haven't listed to this in 30 years. This was my first Journey album although the Perry-era was already in full swing in 1980 (which I do prefer that era from Infinity to Escape - scrap the rest). I did like the interplay of vocals between Rollie and Perry starting with Infinity but there is just something pure about this mid-70's gem. That "space" theme that was so prevalent in that period is here which intrigued the 18 year me. They definitely wove the prog, jazz, rock styles well on this album and being the first album they had that ability to experiment - definitely hear the influences of Santana but also a little Floyd, maybe a little early Kansas. I'm glad they made it through this era to get to 1977/78 but I believe this is the best of their 1st three. If you're a prog fan or just a 70's rock fan with an open mind, this is a fantastic album. It's cheap enough - pick it up.
