Sun 28/09/2008 'Raised On Radio'

Found a copy of Raised On Radio today

Am listening to ROR for the second time, and I can see why it's such a divisive record for Journey fans - definitely the most 'pop' I've listened to so far. But I've got to say, I like it! It isn't pulling me out of skin in the same way 'Infinity' did, but there's been some definite grooving going on!

My highlights - 'Positive Touch' is pretty cool, and I've already been converted to 'Be Good To Yourself' from the 'Essential' set. I LOVE!!!!! the atmospheric opening to 'Happy To Give' - makes me want to cry and laugh and hug someone and walk alone by the sea, all at once. Not so sure about the harmonies on the 'Happy to give' line, bit too chirpy for how this song makes me feel, but I suspect that will grow on me. Listening to the lyrics, I kind of want to yell "where is the one happy to give you love? We're ALL OVER THE PLACE STEVE!!!" LOL. 'Raised On Radio' had me bopping around the table first listen - definitely one for my gym tracks selection on the MP3 player! 'Why Can't This Night Go On Forever' just gave me the emotional shakes; what I wouldn't give to have someone sing that for me and mean it! Such a beautiful love song.
