Personally I prefer pre-Steve Perry Journey.
Once Steve Perry joined the band, it had jumped the shark. When Gregg Rolie left it was crapville.
I'll put the first three albums (Journey, Look into the Future, and Next) against any three rock albums.
Really? From my point of view Steve Perry made that band. Before him nobody knew who they were. I think their older stuff sounds generic and bland. Once Steve Perry joined at least they had something unique. Love him or hate him, he certainly pulled in the crowds, garnered the radio play, and brought the women to the audience. If you are trying to make a good living in that industry, that is a recipe for success.
thanks! you just destroyed your own "journey is good" argument for me
