I'd say a 60/40 mix of Barnes solo and Journey. I do believe the world would stop turning if Steve Perry decided to record Do or Die. Just don't really see him trying that one, even though it's a Barnes/Cain co-write.

Take a lot of the Barnes solo compositions up to that point (Rising Sun and You Got Nothing I Want from Chisel, and the Barnestorming songs before they got re-recorded/remixed for the Working Class Man album) and put a fair amount of Cain/Schon on it, and you are pretty close.

There's some stuff that Journey could get away with for sure, but even replacing the Barnes vocal style with the Perry vocal style, I hear very little "pure Journey" in that album. Influences, yes, but that's it.
