Best Seen with "Explorer"
Rocking the USA!
- Journey has a new lead singer on its summer tour with Def
Leppard while Steve Augeri recovers from a chronic
- Jeff Scott Soto has performed with Journey
guitarist Neal Schon in the band Soul Sirkus they did
together. Jeff did a great job with the same music range as
Steve and having great showmanship to keep the legend of journey going strong.
- Journey finds its footing again and shows signs of its
newly-found confidence incorporating a few more interesting production
techniques. Like other successful bands
of the 1970s and 1980s, Journey's sound was built on the double treat of singer
Steve Perry's upper-register vocals and guitarist Neal Schon's awsone
- The band has done a great job of filling a
slot for the popular Steve Perry that was with journey in the main rocking
years. Even Drummer Deen Castronovo, who sings lead on two tracks, is
even closer to many traditionalist fans' breathy Steve Perry vocal ideal that
they will swoon ("A Better Life," and "Never Too Late. And with Jonathan
Cain's vocals on "Every Generation" are perfectly adequate and reminiscent of
Gregg Rolie's vocal tracks during his Santana and Journey days in the 1970s.
Journey know’s how to through a party playing all there
hits with memorable tunes like "Anyway You Want It" and "Don't Stop Believin'."
"Wheel in the Sky" was one of the band's more arty singles, while "Lovin',
Touching', Squeezing'" relied on a straight four-bar blues. The band's power
ballads gave them their biggest success, and are rightfully represented here:
"Faithfully," "Open Arms," and "Send Her My Love." Another unlikely aspect
furthers secured the band's success--you could actually dance to some of their
stuff, especially "Anyway You Want It." After twenty years, Journey’s returning
to the energetic form with great live shows.
