yeah, Perry's introduction into the band came with 'Infinity'...for my money, their best overall effort. Evolution was next and was also good, followed by the landmark 'Escape'. I never cared much for pre-Infinity records and I think that if the Perry-sound is what you are looking for, then you won't like them either.

People keep talking about 'Captured' and while it's good, like any live record it can't capture the incredible energy the group put into their live performances. This is what I'll remember most about the Perry years---the group was good on record, and probably better live.

Koogles is right of course, one can't look a gift horse in the mouth after all these years. At least the group is playing their music again when so many of our heroes: Boston, VH, Styx , Kansas and others are either doing very little or are playing Rib Festivals and County Fairs. I just think the sound of 'Arrival' is a little different for older fans. Schon isn't featured as much in favor of Cain's keyboards. The writing doesn't encompass as many hooks in the guitar area and lacks the ummppph of Perry's touch.

But's a return to the olden days and still is the best thing out there.
