    Huge Journey fan, having followed their music since 79.
    The ROR album does have unique sounds for the era. There is a saxophone piece towards the end of “Suzanna” that brings back the very early Journey when Steve Perry joined the band reference “Good times” e.g.
    There is a song, however that did not get the pub it needed. The song is called “Happy to Give” Perhaps the best song on this album and marks the beginning of the end of Steve Perry’s incredible range. IMO, all albums sung (afterward), does not have this range advertised. Listen to his next album (FTLOSM) and then Trial by Fire (1996) for his range degradation.

      Agreed Alfred. Happy to give is awesome. This album is great and deserves a better review. I do wish Steve Perry had smoked fewer cigarettes going forward.
