All Music Guide - Mike DeGagne
Escape was a groundbreaking album for San Francisco's Journey, charting three singles inside Billboard's Top Ten, with "Don't Stop Believing" reaching number nine, "Who's Crying Now" number four, and "Open Arms" peaking at number two and holding there for six weeks. Escape flung Journey steadfastly into the AOR arena, combining Neal Schon's grand yet palatable guitar playing with Jonathan Cain's blatant keyboards. All this was topped off by the passionate, wide-ranged vocals of Steve Perry, who is the true lifeblood of this album, and this band. The songs on Escape are more rock-flavored, with more hooks and a harder cadence compared to their former sound. "Who's Crying ...

All Music Guide - Mike DeGagne
Escape was a groundbreaking album for San Francisco's Journey, charting three singles inside Billboard's Top Ten, with "Don't Stop Believing" reaching number nine, "Who's Crying Now" number four, and "Open Arms" peaking at number two and holding there for six weeks. Escape flung Journey steadfastly into the AOR arena, combining Neal Schon's grand yet palatable guitar playing with Jonathan Cain's blatant keyboards. All this was topped off by the passionate, wide-ranged vocals of Steve Perry, who is the true lifeblood of this album, and this band. The songs on Escape are more rock-flavored, with more hooks and a harder cadence compared to their former sound. "Who's Crying Now" spotlights the sweeping fervor of Perry's voice, whose theme about the ups and downs of a relationship was plentiful in Journey's repertoire. With "Don't Stop Believing," the whisper of Perry's ardor is crept up to with Schon's searing electric guitar work, making for a perfect rock song. One of rock's most beautiful ballads, "Open Arms," gleams with an honesty and feel only Steve Perry could muster. Outside of the singles, there is a certain electricity that circulates through the rest of the album. The songs are timeless, and as a whole, they have a way of rekindling the innocence of youthful romance and the rebelliousness of growing up, built from heartfelt songwriting and sturdy musicianship. [Escape was reissued in 2006, housed in a fancy digipack with an expanded booklet and the addition of four bonus tracks: "La Raza del Sol" (the B-side of "Still They Ride") and three live songs from a 1981 show.]

    This Is A Hit!

    This album truly exhibits Journey's final transformation. This album pushes away Journey's last traces of it's roots, and pulling through with the much promised popular sound.

    With Steve Perry's influence becoming more and more clear, this is the beginning of a much remembered band. It makes Journey's new mission crystal clear: with Escape, Journey was leaving it's residual taste of prog-rock and jazz fusion behind. Journey was devoting itself to climbing out of their hole and reaching the sun.

    The album exhibits Steve Perry's shyness of the spotlight. You can tell that even though he was pushing the point of being a more well-respected band, he was still fond of his blues and soul roots. This album had and has the potential of being a hit; the steroetypes of Journey's beginnings need to be dropped. Escape was and is the forefront of the new Journey.
