Hi Kaos fan
I'm with you on the fact that there are lots of bands out there who don't get enough
exposure. I have been collecting for over 25 years and I have lot's of records by brilliant bands who never made it. I also try to keep up with new releases because
basically I cannot get enough music, I am addicted. However if I am honest with myself I believe the vast majority of todays bands cannot hold a candle to Journey.
This is nothing to do with nostalgia as far as I am concerned. It is to do with musical quality and whilst I enjoy the likes of House Of Shakira etc etc ( even though you may think otherwise because I used them as a comparison ), when it comes to all round enjoyment Journey have it all. Great songs rockers and ballads, excellent musicianship and superb production.
Some people may not be bothered by production techniques, guitar tones and
drum sounds etc but I am. I have a musical ear and I want to hear good quality sonics through a decent hifi system.
I am convinced some people who visit this board think downloaded tracks played through shitty pc speakers are the only way to hear music. Get real people.
Yes a good song is a good song and I can still enjoy poorer quality recordings
done with a low budget production but an average Journey track to me is still head and shoulders above the best H O S songs and others of their ilk.
