This really is a great album. I'll admit, I love Journey, always have even though I haven't followed them very closely since the late 80's. And although Steve Perry isn't with them anymore, and as much as I think he has one of the great male voices ever recorded, The new guy, Steve Augeri (interesting how closely their names sound huh?) does an amazing job at filling in. At times, I swear, if you didn't know Steve Perry wasn't in the band anymore, you'd never know it wasn't him. It's almost errire how much he sounds like Steve Perry. But, the truth is, he isn't him, and as good as this album is, there are times when you miss him. But it isn't allot. And truth is, Arrival is much better then the last album with Perry anyway.
I've had this album from Napster for a couple months now even though it was only officially released yesterday, and I will say that even though I already have the album, I am still going to go out and buy it.
Yes, it's that good.
