Q

Were there any melodies or sections of pieces that you loved that didn't make the game? If so, what were the reason(s) for the cut?

Tons and tons and tons of music got cut!! But everything that was cut deserved to be, so I regret nothing.

I worked on it for three straight years, so of course the game changed A LOT in that time. The ideas behind what it should sound like and how it should feel. So music I wrote a month ago suddenly today isn't working. That sort of thing.

I considered releasing a second album of unused Journey music but ultimately decided against it because everything that was cut should have been and therefore belongs in the trash heap. :)
