''Generations'' is an album by the rock band Journey. It was the band's second full studio album with lead singer Steve Augeri and drummer Deen Castronovo. This is the same line-up as the last two releases, 2001's ''Arrival'' and 2002's ''Red 13'' EP. The album was given away for free by the band during most of the concerts of the ''Generations tour'' in 2005, and subsequently released on Sanctuary Records later the same year.

This was the first Journey album where all of the band members share the lead vocalist duties. Jonathan Cain sings lead on "Every Generation", the first time he sang lead since "All That Really Matters" (a song originally left off ''Frontiers'') from the ''Time<sup>3</sup>'' box set. Deen Castronovo sings lead on "A Better Life" and "Never Too Late". Neal Schon provides lead vocals for "In Self Defense" and Ross Valory lends his vocals to "Gone Crazy".

Peaking at #170 on ''Billboards album chart, ''Generations'' was the last album to feature Augeri, who left the band in 2006 due to a throat infection mid-tour. Jeff Scott Soto replaced him and toured with the band until June 2007. It was also the last one released by the now-defunct Sanctuary Records.

The latter portion of the song "Faith in the Heartland" was heard during the December 10, 2006 edition of NBC's ''Football Night in America'', during a segment about Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. "Faith in the Heartland" and "The Place in Your Heart" were re-recorded by the band with new vocalist Arnel Pineda on their 2008 album ''Revelation'', but "The Place in Your Heart" was only released as a bonus track on the Japanese Edition of that album. - Wikipedia
