Day 306

Journey- Infinity

Now we get into the Journey that everyone loves because Steve Perry joined the band!

Although my beloved prog rock is missing from this record, it's still a helluva good album. Can't beat tunes like, "Wheel In The Sky", "Feeling That Way", "Lights", and "Anytime". I love the vocal trade offs between Rolie and Perry.

Too bad Gregg left the band to make way for that tool, Jonathan Cain. Yeah he was vital for their 80's success, but he's no Gregg Rolie in my opinion. Doesn't have the vocal chops that's for sure.

Also a coincidence that I'm blogging my Journey records the same week they are coming to play in Austin. I saw them two years ago when they were here and I gotta admit I was the little Philipino dude won me over. Sounds just like Steve Perry, but with a ton of energy. Puts on a helluva good show. I'd love to go again, but I'm not paying for a ticket. Let me know if you want to give me one.
