What an interesting vibe and presentation for that video. It's like what I'd expect a Tony Bennett (or someone like that) arrangement to look like, lol. Motley assortment of musicians too. Anyway, I don't think the song could possibly have lived up to the brief but intense hype of those first few posts, but yeah, it's a nice tune. Something worth checking out, though definitely not the best thing I've personally heard this year. ;)

But nice.

Sounds great. Great vibe. I'd like another  'Street Talk ' style of album from him, that soulful style suits his voice perfectly. Bare in mind he is nearly 70 years old, so another Journey sounding,  rockier album is probably doubtful at this stage in his career. There are plenty of other bands doing that in this genre anyways. Welcome back Steve. Look forward to hearing the rest of it.

Nice tune, well produced and Steve sounds pretty good.  If I'm being honest it doesn't really do much for my personal tastes though and isn't something I'll be buying.

It's nice to see him back making music though and I'm sure it will appeal to many.

I think it's a marvellous tune. Could have been lifted straight off Street Talk. Becomes even more appealing after several listens.

Really like the lyrics, vibe.

great example of AOR perfectly executed by the master.

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. :eek:  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. LOLimage.thumb.png.4ea9d92fa5bc470f0ff9ff44d25fbe72.png  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

well it was just a PR build up I guess.

He's said quite a bit really quickly since ;)

At the end of the day you can't compare this to Journey. It's Perry solo which has always been lighter, but still classy and well written

This is a nice enough tune but...to be brutally frank...would be a throwaway track with any other name attached to it.  Don't get me wrong - I'm super stoked to hear a new Steve Perry solo album but this track doesn't really set my ears on fire.

Never thought I would type that topic title.

So happy :)

Well, how could you have ever guessed the album title?

Loving the new track but according to Andrew’s pre-review over at Melodic Rock.com is that 8 of the 10 new tracks are ballads...sounds like a Michael Bolton type of release. ??

I can see a 1/2 and 1/2 split because it is Perry but only 1 rocker other than No Erasin’ has really made my excitement diminish.

I pretty much assumed it would mostly ballads.

Just read the track-by-track review on melodicrock.com.

Not surprised in the least that it's entirely composed of ballads... but damn would it have been awesome to see "J. Cain" listed as a co-writer on at least one song.

I never thought we'd actually get this far, so there's still some hope!

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A.

    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
