Journey Solo Albums Ranked Worst to Best
If we relied only upon studio projects from Steve Perry, our list of Journey Solo Albums Ranked Worst to Best would be remarkably short. Likewise with Gregg Rolie, the band's original singer who was the first major figure in Journey to go solo, but he's only issued a few more albums than the famously slow-creating Perry.
Luckily, the other guys have been busy. So much so, in fact, that guitarist Neal Schon and keyboardist Jonathan Cain have occasionally moved well outside the typical Journey fare. The following list of Journey Solo Albums Ranked Worst to Best includes only rock records, however, so that leaves aside more jazz- or new age-inflected items by Cain (1997's Body Language, 2001's Namaste and 2004's Bare Bones), Schon (1995's Beyond the Thunder and 2001's Voice) and drummer Steve Smith, who's focused exclusively on jazz between two well-received tenures in Journey.
We also skipped solo instrumental projects, including 1995's Piano With a View and 1998's For a Lifetime by Cain, and EPs like Rolie's Five Days – as well as Cain's movie soundtrack-related 2002 album Animated Movie Love Songs and 2017's holiday-focused Unsung Noel. Still, our focus remains on these four central creative figures rather than other contributors like, say, Robert Fleischman and Arnel Pineda.
Key collaborations with Bad English, Hardline, the Storm, HSAS and Abraxas Pool round things out. Keep scrolling to find out how they all stacked up in the list of Journey Solo Albums Ranked Worst to Best.
