Biography

by William Ruhlmann

During their initial 14 years of existence (1973-1987), Journey altered their musical approach and their personnel extensively while becoming a top touring and recording band. The only constant factor was guitarist Neal Schon (born February 27, 1954), a music prodigy who had been a member of Santana in 1971-1972. The original unit, which was named in a contest on ...

I had heard Arnel sing on you tube with his band The zoo and was pleasantly surprised at his vocal strength. He can handle the old songs very well and adds something extra to the new material.

Revelation is just that, The first disk is new material except track 5
Faith in the Heartland which was also on the Generations album sung by Steve Augeri. I like both versions but Arnel just shades it for me.

Many of the songs are very typical journey with a brilliant line up of very talented musicians.
Neal Schon plays some excellent guitar including an instrumental track but Arnel adds a slight gritty edge to the vocal. Were Arnel comes into his own is on track 6 'After all these years' which is a slow but powerful song and one of my favourites.
This is also evident in track 10 'Turn down the world tonight' which is another excellent track and adds another side to the talents of the band musically.
I have always loved Perry's vocal but i think Arnel adds an extra raw edge to the band. I also liked the rerecorded old songs on Cd2 and was impressed.

If you are real Journey fan Like me I would get the US version (which arrived this morning)which also includes a DVD live in Vegas which shows how good Arnel is.

I Liked Steve Augeri who was with Tall stories and Jeff Scott Soto who filled in on last the tour, but I think Arnel is better suited.
I don't think anyone can be disappointed in this new material.
Looking forward to seeing them at Manchester on the 19th June.
GO BUY IT!

I'm not quite sure were R.J.W is coming from on this one. I am a fan of both Augeri (Tall Stories) and Soto and believe they are both excellent vocalists in their own right.

Musically I don't think Journeys type of music suited Jeff. He is more of a rocker who has his own ideas as to which direction he wants to go and I genuinely believe that it wasn't the same as The rest of the band. Neal worked with Jeff in a band called Soul sirkus which has a more raw edge to it's music and would not be associated to Journey's melodic sound.

I wish them both the best in whatever they do.

As for the Cd.

After a wait of 3 years - and some vocalist musical chairs! - Journey are back again. And I have to say, after thinking that, not so long ago, the Journey might've come to an end, this album is truly a revelation! With the incredible find of new vocalist, Arnel P. (surely by divine providence), Journey are sounding just as good as ever.

Arnel has to be the nearest anyone could get to honouring the great Voice of Mr Perry - and yet have his own distinct style. He really does have what it takes to sing Journey's great repertoire. Arnel has the power and depth that S. Augeri inevitably lacked (without taking anything away from his time with Journey).

This album contains some classic Journey songs written primarily by Jon Cain and Neal Schon. There are echoes from almost every Journey album, and yet it has a new, fresh feel to it too.

The opener 'Never Walk Away' is very much a 'Be Good to Yourself' kind of song. The melody stays with you quite easily. 'Change For The Better' has the 'Higher Place' kinda feel to it, and it also reminds me a little of Kansas. 'Wildest Dream' stands out as quite a rocker, leaning in a slightly different direction in the vein of a few tracks from 'Generations.'

I'm not quite sure why they re-recorded 'Faith in the Heartland' from 'Generations,' anyhow, even with Arnel's strong vocals, I actually prefer the original. 'After All These Years' is a classic Journey ballad, written by Mr J. Cain in the way he does best. This song, and Mr Schon's wonderful guitar playing, sends shivers down my spine!

'The Journey (Revelation)' is a very interesting eastern-sounding Neal Schon instrumental that could easily have come from one of his solo albums.

I could give a track-by-track analysis, but I won't!
