Does anybody on this site like Journey (the band)? I've been listening to their music lately, and it's really growing on me. But the way I describe it wouldn't make any sense to anyone but me... it makes me think of two things: driving late at night on a busy road when it's drizzling after leaving a diner, and a warm-ish late winter late afternoon when the sun is low in the sky but not exactly setting and it's casting a golden glow on everything and the sky is a brilliant blue. Like I said, makes no sense...

So, what are your thoughts about Journey?

Journey had one of the best singers in my opinion : Steve Perry. 

By the way if you haven't, check the music video of "Separate Ways", quite a laugh I'll say.

Yes, he's a very good singer, but all four of The Beatles are better, in my opinion. Still, Steve Perry is really good. Apparently there's someone from The Philippines who sounds exactly like him.

I hated Journey for years, but then investigated them more thoroughly a couple of years ago when I was particularly infatuated with all manner of late-70s/early 80s AOR bands. (Styx have always been one of my more shameful loves!) And I definitely found enough enjoyable rock tunes to compile a nice CD-R compilation. And yeah, Steve Perry does have a pretty impressive set of pipes, even if he rubs you the wrong way (like he usually does to me. A matter of personal taste, I guess. Their first few albums, pre-Perry, are quite different - more jazz-fusiony.)

I went through a Journey phase. I'm interested in seeing the documentary that just came out about the lead singer who replaced Steve Perry.

That guy replaced Steve Perry as lead singer in 2007.  They had seen his Journey covers on Youtube.  He does sound astonishingly a lot like Steve Perry.  I am not much of a fan so more hardcore fans can probably tell the difference.

Arnel Pineda, a guy in his 40's a nice age to start touring I think. He left his band to join Journey, and he's the third lead singer of the band. Btw Journey removed all of his videos from youtube I think lol. Arnel Pineda sometimes cheats and sings Journey songs on local channels.

I like them. I hear their songs on the radio a lot, particularly "Don't Stop Believing", but I didn't know who they really were until the show Glee. Pathetic, I know, but unlike most Gleeks, I prefer the original.

Had occasion to hear their second album, 1976's Look Into The Future recently, and discovered that they do a cover of "It's All Too Much".

It's terrible.

Glad I didn't pay for it!

Why would you do a cover of IATM?? I mean I don't want to knock it too much but, come on, is hearing the Beatles' version not enough? It's one of those songs I often forget exists because of the lack of times I've thought ''I know, I'll listen to that!''

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

IATM is actually one of my favourite Beatles songs :) Why? I do not know but I love the intro!

It makes me feel really drowsy and like I want to curl up and sleep.

Listening to that cover right now.

At the beginning I thought ''Hmm..I quite like the arrangement''

But then..ehh..no.

IATM does have a fantastic opening, one of the best in the cannon, however it lasts too long. Strangely however I don't mind the full uncut 8 minutes, no idea how that can be possible.

The only thing I like about Journey is that its two founding members and leaders -- Neal Schon and Greg Rolie -- were superlative musicians in Santana for two albums, and four albums, respectively.  Greg Rolie especially I esteem -- I consider him quite simply the best Hammond organist in all pop music history.
