Best Journey album without Steve Perry,
This review is from: Revelation (Audio CD)
This is the first album with Arnel on lead vocals and you get plenty for your money....a new studio album of original material plus a live cd with Arenl providing lead vocals on some of the bands classic tracks from the Steve Perry era.
Its the best album they have done without Steve on lead vocals and is more rockier than the last SP album Trial by Fire and is somewhat a return to form for the never ending Journey.
Arnels vocals especially on the live cd are as close to having SP back singing as your likely to get and his vocals on the new studio tracks are impressive. The only downside for me is that the tunes are heavier and contain al the Journey trademarks, but just lack that catchy commercial edge that the band had when they were at their peak. Having said that though this cd is impressive and good value for money and well worth exploring.....if you are a SP fan then this cd should do the job without ever quite reaching the heights of the glory days.
It will be interesting to see where they go from here as this cd has sold really well and what they and Arnel come up with on their next studio outing.
