It's all down to how the new material is accepted by fans versus the older classics. Rush has a better/bigger/wider fanbase overall of their entire catalog than Journey. They can easily play a wider assortment of songs per tour and still get great response. But they DO have the core few tunes they HAVE to play,too. With Journey, if they stray to far into album cut land,their crowd isn't anywhere near as forgiving,and will grow angsty. Espescially if they release something so album oriented as Eclipse. It's a deeper listen,and alot of Journey's fans aren't that deep into everything they do--they want those hits over and over,it seems. But at the pace they tour,that well WILL run dry as time goes on. They needed to carry on with more similar to Revelations for any chance of moving forward. They/Schon chose not to,so--here they are claiming no more new music-what's the use? Can you say..misguided? T
