Raised on Radio

Frontiers, Journey's eighth album, was released in February 1983 on the Columbia Records label. It is Journey's second best selling album, behind Escape.

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.

The album has sold over six million copies since its 1983 release.

  • Highest chart position: the album reached #2 on the Billboard album charts.

The song "Edge of the Blade" was covered by Norwegian hard rock vocalist Jorn Lande on his 2000 album Starfire.

Randy Jackson of American Idol played bass on 2 tracks including After The Fall.
