2011 Outlook: Whitesnake, Journey and More | Popdose

2011 sees the arrival of a new Journey album, the second from the Arnel Pineda variant. Eclipse arrives on May 24, after which the band hits the road with Foreigner. I have been very vocal in the past about Pineda, that while he is a good singer and hits the Steve Perry vocal mark, the seemingly calculated grooming to make him into a Perry clone comes off at the least off-putting, and at the most intensely creepy.

However, with my reservations put aside (and with Eclipse not offering a second disc where Pineda covers the old Perry-Journey tracks) I think I will be able to approach this one with more of an open mind. We’ll see. In the worst-case scenario, I’ll be sending the disc along to Rob Smith who has a documented tolerance for power ballads and an inclination to not say “no.”
