A classic Journey album

While the rumors flew of Steve and Neal not getting along, they were still able to put out a brilliant album. The musicianship is classic Journey, with classic riffs by Schon, and keys by Cain. Of course, Steve Perry brings it, as usual!! The band has such amazing harmonies. Happy to give is such a melodic tune, all these tunes are great for radio play.
One of the greatest bands ever!

Overlooked Classic

"Raised on Radio" is one of Journey's best albums, though it has been largely overlooked by fans. It marks a subtle evolution from the harder edged "Frontiers" which is clearly the result of Steve Perry taking more control of the band and his production of this album. The album is replete with fantastic cuts, including "Girl Can't Help It," "Positive Touch," "Suzanne," "Be Good to Yourself," "It Could Have Been You," and the exquisite ballads "I'll Be Alright Without You and "Why Can't This Night Go On Forever." Admittedly there are some tracks which would have fit better on Perry's solo album "Street Talk," specifically "Once You Love Somebody," "Happy to Give" and "The Eyes of a Woman." The title cut, "Raised on Radio," should have been left off the album altogether.

This 2006 remaster is a must have for any Journey fan. The sound quality is far superior to that of the originally issued CD. It also includes two great live cuts. I only wish they had included the fantastic instrumentals "With a Tear" and "Into Your Arms" from this era and included on the Time3 box set.

Classic!

Loved this album as a kid, love it even more now as an adult. I agree with a previous review that it is a very underrated album. I think what I like the most is that the group filled gaps of missing musicians with excellent replacements (Randy Jackson-bass and Larry Londin-drums) to make it still sound like the Journey that everyone loved in the 80's. Give it a listen...you'll love it!
