Top 10?? Kurt- I'll give you 10 free hard rock CDs off my trade list if it debuts in the Top 10! That's a promise!! I know my bet is safe because there's no way that "Arrival" will debut in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200!! The reason why "Trial" made it so high was:

1. It was Journey's first studio album in 10 years.

2. Sony gave it the full marketing guns. I sense they won't give "Arrival" the same push, seeing as "Trial" didn't rack up the numbers they were expecting.

3. "When You Love a Woman"- the single was already on fire when it came time for the CD to hit the streets.

I still say the CD will debut at a modest no. 87. That's because the Jap release has undercut sales, Steve Perry not being in the band will scare some people away and radio won't exactly be in the band's corner this time. I HOPE it lands a "higher place"... don't get me wrong! But recent efforts by Styx and Kansas have had really disappointing debuts... it's just the way the chips fall these days!
