For the generation that grew up during the Reagan Era, Journey will always be associated with the sweaty palms and stomach-churning anticipation of grade school dances. Orgasmically dramatic break-up songs employed pulsating synthesizers, massive guitars, and innumerable vocal tracks backing up Steve Perry's pleading falsetto. With this astonishingly successful formula, Journey defined the blow-dried power-ballad that ruled '80s FM radio. After a long hiatus, Journey reformed in 1996, releasing a single and going on a reunion tour. In the early 2000s, minus original singer Steve Perry, Neal Schon and company went back into the studio and began recording new material, which produced Arrival in 2001 and Generations in 2005.
