Just finished listening the whole album. Yup..it's a nice album. Was expecting atleast a couple of tracks to be as good as or better than Lost Boy(one of my faves this year) but sadly the rest all fell a tad short.
America 2, Explorers and Lost Boy are my picks.
Brutal. Makes me want to pour a warm bath an open-up a vein.
2018 Steve Perry is not for me. Once again I'll reiterate that I love Journey-era Steve Perry nearly as much as anyone, and I'm perhaps the biggest Raised On Radio fan on this entire forum.
I wish I hadn't pre-ordered Traces. Anyone want to purchase my copy of the Blue-colored LP?
Shout At The Devil was a near perfect album for 1983. Then came the glamier Theater Of Pain and it fit 1985 like a glove. Save for Hysteria, Girls was my favorite album in 1987 and with Feelgood they rounded-out the decade with what certainly should be considered their best album.
They were THE quintessential 80's LA band and weren't part of the Sunset Strip, they were THE Sunset Strip, and all others who followed were simply doing that... following Motley Crue. That seven year run was easily as impressive as any other band from that era.
