I'd say give the cd a listen befored judging it based on the cover. You never know, maybe it is Journey with a different name. The proof is in the music.

Actually, I have about 7 of the original songs--including the original version of "Remember" on cassette and love them (moreso than Two Fires actually), but this is no more Journey than anything else.



I think the cover is kinda cool myself along with record name. With Valory, Prince and Chalfant involved, I'd say the cover is justified. What do you think?

I have no problem with the record name--it is rather inspired--but there is only ONE Journey, Styx, Night Ranger, Def Leppard, etc. I have no problem with somone sounding like Journey as long as they pull it off (The 2nd Storm cd is among my all time favorites and it's nothing if not Journey-sounding) but copying cover art directly is going a bit too far, IMO. Look at the Hugo cds--he has his own little logo which distinguishes him and makes him unique. Why can't The VU have it's own logo???
