Regarding the Napster deal:

It is quite evident that an argument can be made for either side (okay its on Napster vs. Not okay). I am entirely confused as to which side I'm on. I have decided to wait for the official CD release however.

Argument "okay"
1) Its unreleased
2) Mostly fans that will buy the CD anyway
3) Fans haven't been privvy to any teasers from Journey on their website
4) Journey fans are rabid

Argument "Not okay"
1) It was unfinished, unpolished. It is not the final album - and their "test" material doesn't have a right to be reviewed without their consent. Test products often have problems, and in this case, Journey didn't ask anyone for a friggin Beta Test......The order will be different, the songs will be different, and the quality will be different.

2) There will be some non core-fans and bad music ear people that download it and hear it through their cheesy computer speakers, and say that it's not as good as Perry's era. And I don't want eveybody e-mailing me telling me how great their computer speakers are - many people have a very mono, shit PC sound system.

3) Anyone who downloads it after a certain point MUST realize it's theft. It is now well known that Journey/SONY do not want it out yet.
