I think the best thing about releasing a new album is we get a chance to see who our TRUE Fans are. Every time we have every released an ep or album there has been people who say..."oh this is weird" or "this is different I don't like it" so we get to see who really digs us for who we are, and who does not. Thanx To ALL our True fans who continue to support or musical Journey....we love you and we know who you are!-Ronnie
When I heard "You Better Pray" for the first time I'll admit I was kind of straddling the fence between like and dislike but its growing on me. The rest of the songs are amazing... I think "Step Right Up" is my favorite, but its still too early to tell. I have no idea what negative things people have been saying but... change is inevitable in all aspects of life. People either need to accept the "this is how things are" and grow as opposed to "this is how things were" and miss out on great things.
Cheers to you Ronnie.
And... I'm with Caroline... come back to Tallahassee asap. We love you... another sold out show at Floyd's is waiting for you :)
