COBL some thoughts

the intro of COBL for me is very reminiscent to NEON LIGHTS of Kraftwerk. the melody is nearly the same as the theme of NL but a bit more uptempo. some others say its very JOURNEY-ish...any ideas?

i know they mean NYC but for me COBL has more of a japanese feeling (sitting in one of their fast trains, looking out of the windows and see all the landscapes flashing by and finally arriving TOKYO)

The guitar part in the first minute sounds like the Acrobat/Zoo station intro during the soundcheck in let me think.... Hersey U.S.
Anyone alse agrees?

Im a big Journey fan, and I cant really hear the 'Journey references' in COBL. Not yet anyway!
