I see a couple comments here that are kind of negative LOL. Were probably safe doing that here. But OMG dont you freaking dare even hint at something close to criticism on his Facebook page. Before the new song was even posted anywhere Perry posted this and I responded "after all these years weve been waiting and thats all your going to say". LOL And the women there almost ripped me a new one. Even sent me message's on Facebook messenger. But I should have expected nothing less from groupies. LOL I like the song, its a decent tune. But of course it doesnt have the power behind it like when he was with Journey. I'll probably end up buying it. Maybe. LOL
Ok, Im going against the grain here and saying I like it. Ive enjoyed what Ive heard from him in the past (Blood On The Bricks is a favorite). And Fantasy has always been a classic. I dont care much for the extra "sounds/noises" but Ive heard them before with a lot of other artists and still liked their songs. So for me, for now.
Not the greatest song they've ever done, but a good'un nonetheless. It sounds like Disturbed, which is good enough for me. If it's more polished and/or melodic, it's not by much. In a world full of modern hard rock/metal sound-alikes, these guys have always sported a distinct style that has resonated.
