20+ years in the making.  After all these years I really never thought it would happen.  This is a BUY IT NOW the moment pre-orders can be taken.

I missed the sound sample... I'm guessing one of y'all snatched it and is able to email it to me?  PLEASE send me a PM!

That's a top tune. Very nice.

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.

Perry's voice seems a bit strained... I'm guessing there won't be another "Suzanne" on the new album.  At this point, however, I'd buy a CD of Perry singing the telephone book.

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.

Great song. A lot of people are bitching about it not being the next "insert favorite Journey/Steve Perry solo track here". That's their problem. I'm just happy to hear him on a new album...period!

Not a fan of the song, not because of the singer but just the song itself.

Still happy to see him back though

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.

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.

Let's face it, if Perry was capable of belting out STONE IN LOVE as though it were 1981, Pineda would still be singing 80's cover-tunes on various Manilla street corners.

Sadly, those days are over.

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!

    • Pulling out is like like signing a genocide order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • It's a blatant ripoff of Roger Dean and his work for Yes and Asia like "Union" and "The Ladder". 
    • Such a random album cover and band logo... looks more like Saga... or something like that..
    • I did see these when I was googling (and in turn ogling) her the other night. Very delicious. 
    • I was actually spinning it on Thursday/Friday too and stand by my comments. Solid album, but easily the weakest of their last three. Really missing some knock-out blows. But solid. 
    • Got my advance digital copy of the Donnie album and it is defo not an EZN album by any means, with that above song being the only one that really captures that classic sound. Much like most of his releases, this is a more laid back affair for the most part but does have some great songs on it. As expected, a much better album than the EZN one, but would certainly not appeal to everyone. Unsurprisingly the Beatles and Cheap Trick influences are on show here as well.   If you are familiar with the rest of his solo career, then that is pretty much what is on offer here as well.
    • also pulling out of Paris agreement is grossly negligent imo and those tax cuts are gonna hurt the US in the long run....driving up debt will only lead to austerity measures in years to come. Trump won't mind tho cos he's saving millions as a result of his tax cuts lol. 
    • it's not booming in the rest of the world....mainly affected by his ludicrous trade war.
