Just spent the early hours of friday / saturday playing Arrival to death!
First impressions.... What is this - Stars in their eyes?? They have gone to extraordinary lengths to have Steve Augeri sound like Steve Perry! He has even got the Perryesque warbles to a tee! This is definitely not the same Augeri who sang with Tall Stories or on that last, awful, Tyketto CD Shine. If they'd wanted a Steve Perry mimic they should have gone for Hugo!
The whole sound is different. If you listen to this album and then Trial By Fire back to back you'll see what I mean. The playing, production, harmonies on TBF are different class compared to Arrival.
I'm now listening to this album not as a Journey album but as a debut from a new band. Then I can listen to it without getting wound up!
There ARE some good tracks on this album and listened to without the Journey banner it isn't bad at all.
