專輯介紹


ngineers turned producers), the album continued to build on the band's previous two recordings, but offered an added edge, arrangement-wise. This was likely due to the fact that the band had walked into Automatt Studios with 19 new tunes and proceeded to record most of them live, eventually trimming down to 11 songs. Catapulted all the way up to number eight on the Billboard Top 200, Departure was the band's highest charting album to date and got off to an explosive start with the driving riffs and chorused vocals of "Anyway You Want It" (another radio smash that would chart Top 25). Never sounding tighter, the quintet then launched into "Walks Like a Lady" (another future FM staple, climbing to number 32) and a string of outstanding rockers, including future concert opener "Where Were You" and the stop-go-stop-go energy of "Line of Fire." On the other hand, elegant power ballads like "Good Morning" and "Stay Awhile" would foreshadow the band's future commercial triumphs on Escape. And even though it packs the occasional filler like "Someday Soon" and "Homemade Love" (a weak attempt to boogie that falls absolutely flat and, tellingly, was the only Gregg Rolie-sung tune here), Departure is a solid record all around. Soon, Rolie would be replaced by the greater pop-savvy songwriting muscle of former Babys keyboard man Jonathan Caine, and Journey would go from huge cult act to monster superstars.

1973年成立於美國舊金山市的搖滾樂隊之旅,1975年發行首張同名專輯,便以其偏向前衛搖滾的樂風在樂壇闖出名聲,但由於他們的作品都以曲折複雜的爵士搖滾演奏曲為主軸,使得他們的頭三張專輯雖都擁有穩定且不錯的排行銷售成績,但卻難免有些曲高和寡之憾。因此,西遊記在不斷地修正音樂方向,及歷經成員的變動 - 尤其是主唱史蒂夫佩里加入所產生的化學變化之後,終於在1978年以其第四張專輯,也是史蒂夫佩里擔任主唱的首張專輯“無限”打破了三年來的僵局,於一年內創下破百萬張的銷售紀錄,自此西遊記的名聲與銷售便雙雙地如扶搖直上。除了“無限”以及接下來的兩張專輯“捕獲”(1979年),“出發”(1980)都創下發行一年內破全美百萬及如今三白金的銷售認證外,更於 1981年的旅程年以專輯“獲得”拿下告示牌專輯排行冠軍寶座,締造了“誰在哭”,“不要停止Believin'”,“張開雙臂”連續三首排行前10名暢銷經典名曲,一舉登上音樂巔峰,立足巨星行列。

1987年,在為專輯促銷的巡迴演出結束之後,樂隊解散了。主音歌手史蒂夫佩里終日酗酒,並開始了毛病迭出的獨唱生涯。喬納森該隱與鍵盤手約翰韋特組建了錯誤的英語樂隊。1996年,在哥倫比亞唱片公司總裁的竭力推動下,樂隊成員重新走到一起。
