Eclipse is the name of the album? Schon was in a band called Hardline, they had that tune called Hot Cherie, that album was called Double Eclipse. I guess Neal is a fan of the galaxy

I saw the "Escape" tour back in the late '70's and it was fantastic. I haven't heard any of the music they put out since Steve Perry left.

It was like a video game store except you could buy music and it was full of cool people who aren't afraid to talk to girls.

McCain has a point. Journey has tons of deep cuts they can play, and their boomer audience would recognize them.

Judging from total physical + digital sales over the past decade, a bit more revision was needed.

Same here. And he is right, Im listening to some Alvin Lee from some links posted on that thread and thats still holding up pretty good. I cant imagine todays popular music music doing that. The only thing I can really put my finger on is that nothing today seems to have any feel. Ya know?

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I don't buy singles or individual tracks, just full albums in whatever format (mostly on CD, but I'll do MP3s if I'm feeling lazy).  It's a shame more bands aren't putting together fully composed albums where all of the tracks build off of each other anymore, but IMO it's still worth it to get the whole thing, many times I find that I like one or more of the non-released-as-a-single songs more than whatever the 'hit' is.

verbaltoxin: McCain has a point. Journey has tons of deep cuts they can play, and their boomer audience would recognize them.


Exactly.  Hell, I'm probably one of their biggest fans nowadays, and I'm 31 and have been a fan since I was probably 17 thanks to my Dad.  They had a tour back in I think 2005/06 which was one of those "An evening with......." kind of things that was about 3 hours in length (it was the last tour with Augeri) to celebrate their 30th anniversary of their first album in '75......they pulled out stuff from all the eras, including cuts from those first 3 pre-Perry albums that no one had heard live since probably '77 at the latest before Perry joined.  I gotta admit I skipped their stop here last time, since I am veeerrry tired of hearing the greatest hits.  I've seen them every other tour since '98, but couldn't do it this time.  If I wanted to hear that stuff completely live, I'll dig through my massive bootleg collection and find something.......

Anyway, rant off.....

As one of the few remaining Marillion fans in America, who owns every album up to and including Sounds That Can't Be Made, let me go on record and state that this statement is pure crap.

Mostly feels disposable. Anything that sounds kind of cool, just reminds me of who it was borrowed from, and then I instantly compare and contrast. Often in disappointment. Black Keys crack me up so they get a pass. It's a guilty pleasure.

Is making decent music out of the question?

Departure was one of the first albums I ever bought. I'm not proud of liking some Journey tunes, but dammit they used to be pretty good.

I just went to their website and listened to Resonate. I guess it's okay. I'm not going to say it sucks, but I don't think it's anything I ever want to listen to again.

I heard the song Escape off the "Escape" album recently and it is a killer track. Good groove and a cool musical bridge in the middle of it.

Ok. Here is the studio version of Look Into the Future. They lost it at Wheel In the Sky, IMO.

Deadwing: As one of the few remaining Marillion fans in America, who owns every album up to and including Sounds That Can't Be Made

Nah, don't sell the band short. They have a good "cult band" niche going here, all without record company support. I saw three shows in June 2012 on their last American tour (Los Angeles x 2 and San Francisco) and they were all excellent, the second night in LA especially. They were also packed to the gills with fans who knew every word to every song (except the two new ones from STCBM of course).

I've been a fan since buying the Market Square Heroes single as a very expensive import and I love the h era stuff. I wish I could go to the Montreal weekend because they're doing Radiation AND Brave complete but I'm barely making ends meet as is.

I saw Journey open for ELP at the Long Beach Arena in August 1977 and it had to have been one of the last gigs before Robert Fleischman joined, it was the four piece band. They were still playing stuff from the first 3 albums and they got a nice reception, not always the case for opening bands.

Link is dead, so I didn't RTFA, I'm most just here to say "Randy Jackson", point, and laugh.
 
2013-03-08 03:18:05 AM  
The newest album is a bit forced - as if they were hell-bent on making a hit. A shame - the previous album (Revelation) was a surprisingly solid effort...not that anyone here would bother listening to something so gauche as  a Journey album.
 
2013-03-08 06:33:04 AM  
These "classic rock" bands who peaked in the 1970s and 1980s don't realize that their formulaic music style is effectively dead? The formula for airplay today is an endless rotation of the same recycled "Big Hits" or "Classic Hits" music. Very few artists have been able to break that cycle, but they do it by appealing to today's demographic, not trying to go back and write 1981 songs.
 
2013-03-08 10:10:34 AM  
journey is one of those bands that i used to have no real opinion on, but i had no idea just how many of the terrible songs they play on classic rock stations are journey songs.  "lovin, touchin, squeezin" is a journey song, "lights" is a journey song, "any way you want it" is a journey song.  i had no idea that journey was responsible for these terrible songs until just the last couple years.  "lovin, touchin, squeezin" by itself qualifies journey to be one of the most terrible bands in the history of terrible bands, that song is an assault on everything good and pure in the world.
 
2013-03-08 10:57:18 AM  
As someone who does OK making extra cash playing guitar in cover bands, I can safely say Journey still goes over well...at least in the bar cover band setting.
