** The Frontiers album.

** The Frontiers album.
album. All the albums before it had been either progressive-rock or [[TheSeventies 1970s-style]] blues-oriented AOR, with the album immediately-preceding it, ''Escape'', being full of feel-good inspirational rock. Frontiers dove into harder-edged rock and angry lyrics about break-ups and future-shock, with synthesizers and angry guitar replacing the melodic rock of its predecessors.
** "One More" from the Trial By Fire album. The track is harsher in vocals and sound, with doomsday-inspired lyrics, and sounds out of place among the softer songs of the rest of the album.

* SignatureSong: "Don't Stop Believin'", without a doubt.

* SignatureSong: "Don't Stop Believin'", without a doubt. It's the one song the band always plays in concert & is a guaranteed singalong, the one song ''everyone'' recognizes as Journey, and gets the most airplay out of the band's catalog.

And not just some small obscure award either, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome it got nominated for Best Score]], placing Austin Wintory amongst heavyweights like JohnWilliams, HansZimmer, HowardShore and [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]]. Not to mention that to be recognized alongside the former [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments was also a lifelong dream of Wintory's]].

* BestLevelEver: The Apotheosis stage and the level with the sandsurfing are the most likely to be brought up in conversation on forums, for nothing but the sheer levels of SceneryPorn and {{HSQ}} they contain.

* BestLevelEver: SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Yes, it's good enough to stand on the same page as the band Journey. It plays on a recurring motif that can be heard in its simplest form in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLfj3pAlrs4 Nascence]]", the first song, and at its most awe-inspiring in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypNgvc6c6Cc Apotheosis]]", the very last song.
** While all the music you hear throughout is amazing, the ending credits song "I Was Born For This" just tops them all. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_wkJ377LzU You can listen to it here]].

* FaceOfTheBand: Steve Perry, who was hired because the record company felt that Gregg Rolie wasn't distinctive enough and the band needed a clear front-man. Even after Perry left the band, he is still the member who is most associated with the band. Journey's new lead singer Arnel Pineda has had some small success becoming this ''outside'' of the US, but in the States, where most Journey fans think the band broke up after Steve Perry left, he's pretty much a complete unknown. And a majority of people in the US who have heard of him only did so because there was a video on YouTube about how Journey "got back together" with the introduction of the new singer, and now are "in exile" playing in the foreign market now that their fame in the US has "diminished."
