I mean...this is the album with Don't Stop Believing. I kinda have to like it somewhat.

I like April Fools because for an entire day I can give any piece of music a 0 or a 100 and there's no proof to suggest whether or not I'm being honest.

Other than Don't Stop Believin' I really can't find much to return here for. Pretty standard 80's Rock music.

Best Track: Don't Stop Believin'
Worst Track: Keep On Runnin'

Escape is undeniably their best work, including some of the best rock ballads of the decade. Come on guys, give Steve Perry and the band some credit. I mean, at least everyone has sang "Don't Stop Believin" or "Who's Crying Now" once in their lives.
