Generations reviews on Mel Rock. Slightly Worrying

Postby mamos » Thu Jul 14, 2005 4:02 am

I've read the personnel reviews of Generations and there really are some shocking reviews. Not even average but damn right poor.

There are about 6 with less than 60%.

How have opinions varied so much. Hardly anyone on this forum has had a bad word to say about it.

Yea, but HOTS are you reading some of the bad reviews? Tons of them are like 1-line no anaylsis at all. There's not a lot of credibility there.

What do you think?

Oh stop it, Dave! I'm honest! You may not like my opinions, but it's the way that I see it. You see my remarks as insults simply because it's not your point of view. You never state that it's your point of view. I gave my opinion on the multipal voices, about too much of Neal's beautiful quitar, about the monotomy of the music on some of the songs and was shot down. Well listen to the opinions of the fans and see how many match up.

What the hell makes you all think that you can trash, and you do, the one person who gave Journey it's success, and not expect to to get it right back in spades.
I know that Andrew has pobably recieved more complaints, from you cry babies, about me, than any other Perry fan. I trust his judgment. I've never complained to him once. If he wants to pull my plug, then, so be it.

Ruby, I'm suprised that you're so easily amused by the schoolboy retorts from some here.

Yeah Dave! HOTS had the first Generations review on the board; 6 months before it was even recorded!

the one person who gave Journey it's success


Yeah! After all, Perry was the lead singer of Santana and gave us hits like "Black Magic Woman" and "Evil Ways"...oh wait, that was Gregg Rolie. :?

Well Perry was at Woodstock when he was 16 and was being fought over by Clapton and Santana...oh wait, that was Neal Schon. :?

What was the point again? That Journey was a collection of no-talent losers before Perry rode in on his white stallion (from the turkey farm)?

Yeah! Ok! :roll:

Hey hippy, multipal vocals threw up the red flag.

Neal stated the obvious. Perry brought all the success. Don't argue with me. You know I'm right.

I really hate to correct your facts because your points are valid, but Neal was not at Woodstock. He joined a little later.

Hmm, there were multiple vocals on Infinity, Evolution AND Departure. Yeah, big red flag there!

heardonthestreet wrote:Neal stated the obvious. Perry brought all the success.



Ya know, I bet Neal wishes he worded that differently, but he didn't. But you fail to believe anything else Neal says...just that one quote.I bet Perry rethought his "never felt like part of the band" comment as well. Or least he didn't feel that way when he sang "brothers 'till the end" in "Anyway". I know Deen has rethought the "Perry with a perm" comment a time or two. And yet there are STILL people who think Perry is in Journey and looks a little different...

heardonthestreet wrote:Don't argue with me. You know I'm right.


You are not right, you are left...behind. Perry has moved on and forgotten you. And if I (or any of my 'partners') didn't argue with you this board could get boring and full of revisionist history, fluff and lies.

You few loyalists thrive on "fluff and lies," imo. I'ts all about the music and the truth hurts. That's why the Steve Perry Years will be "All That Really Matters."...........Thank You J.C.

Your posts are so pathetic. Do you have nothing better to do than try to piss on people's happiness? Like maybe feed your 25 cats that share your one bedroom apartment? :cry:

You had a negative opinion on "Generations" before the god-damned album title was even picked.
NOW STOP IT!
ENOUGH!
Does you disingenuity no no bounds, sir?

Yeah, before hearing a full track from the album.

Errm, yeah, based upon a one minute sound byte of "The Place in Your Heart".

I've never seen Dave trash Steve Perry.
This post is an unremitting littany of lies.

Even if he wasn't considering it, after this post, it's high time to can your sorry (not too mention pathologically mendacious) ass.

You all are so far off. I'm really pretty decent looking, have a lovely home, weigh about 127, love great music and enjoy the rest. I love cats but don't trust them and prefer Camels. They can read your mind.

Don't bother to be personally nasty, cause it falls on deaf ears, as it dosen't apply. So nobody here likes me. I can live with that. I could tell you lies and fit right in, but the truth will out.

I do not doubt you. I actually deep down believe you.

Say, can you tell us your measurements? This is an adult board, and I for one would love to create your beauty in my mind, as I travel tomorrow. Please? pretty please? I just know you are stunning. Move over Shania Twain!

Have a good night.. :D

I could be wrong, certainly wouldn't be the first time , but I swear I saw Schon in the Woodstock footage of "Soul Sacrifice".

BTW: my point was not so much that Perry is some sort of slacker, IMO he is one of Rock's icons. However, to say that he is the Alpha and Omega of Journey is a MAJOR slam on the other incredible musicians that have been in Journey.

Journey had a healthy cult following and a strong lineage before Perry ever hit the scene. No one can deny that he made them a lot more radio accessible and got them exposure they wouldn't have on their own. But facts are facts. Journey put out 3 albums while Perry's band couldn't get arrested.

Perry is one of rock's greatest singers in part because he was backed by some of rock's greatest musicians.

Hippie, we all know everything you say is true. But there will be some Perryhead (probably HOTS) who will come in and tell us that Journey's success was due to Perry. And it will go round and round and round... I am getting dizzy...

Well, NealisGod(all blasphemy aside), perhaps you should collect yourself, take a few deep breaths and manage to stay calm. I'm sure HOTS is just tying to make her point. I am also sure she is trying to contribute to the board in her own way. Please don't insinuate that she is deliberately trying to create a disturbance.

jrnyman28, There really is no need for you to assume that another human being would be so callous and condemning. Your tired and relentless evil spirited attitude is not what makes this a healthy board.. What makes this a healthy board is unity, respect, and a good steady vibe of trading accolades. If you cannot do this, I may be forced to contact the administrator of this forum and see to it you are either corrected or removed. I'm sorry if I brought you down, but remember the day is young..so go take it on! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
