« Back to all albums

Frontiers, Journey's eighth album, was released in February of 1983 on the Columbia Records label. The album would garner four top 40 singles: "After the Fall" (#23), "Send Her My Love" (#23), "Faithfully" (#12), and "Separate Ways" (#8), and a rock radio hit in "Chain Reaction." All of the first five tracks (the album's first side) had videos created for them. Arguably the album would have been an even bigger success had it not been for the last minute decision by Michael Dilbeck, the band’s longtime A & R man, to switch two tracks; he put "Back Talk" and "Troubled Child" in, and took out "Ask the Lonely" and "Only the Young." Jonathan Cain had more input on this album; not only did he once again help co-write all the tracks, he was the main pen behind "Faithfully", and there is more emphasis on keyboards.
