I know this was mentioned a few days back-finally got a chance to relisten and... I'm still replaying this cd! I liked it upon release,tho I've always thought the songs were a tad too overblown in length. AND--it STILL needs a much better tracklisting! But I've grown to really love the entire cd anew after giving it a few more spins. There are some truely classic Journey tracks here-- City Of Hope, Tantra,Human Feel,Too Whom It May Concern,Someone,and Anything Is Possible are all worthy of radio airplay-if there still was such a thing. I had a harder time getting into the edgier,long tracks.But they kept growing over time and now upon revisiting the darn thing one more time, I finally can almost agree with Andrew's perfect score (I'd be more like a 90-94 tho). Arnel sounds incredible throughout and becomes his own man here. And the band kills with Schon of course turning in a blistering performance. I really do think that most fans that had an adverse effect to Eclipse maybe just haven't given it just that intense listen,tho I do understand that it can divide the fanbase. Some of their fans will always want their most radio-friendly style. But they've always been overall much more tha that. And Eclipse does have it's moments of harkening back to Infinity days before they became radio friendly/commercial darlings. if you founf Eclipse less tha stellar--maybe give it another listen with new ears. You may just be surprised/re-invigorated by it,like I've been. Cheers, T
