Steve Perry - Traces

Recommended Posts

I'm going to play this one to my girlfriend without saying who it is and she what she thinks. 

At nearly 70 his voice is still better than most that will ever hold a microphone. 

I really don't know about the 'quality of the songs'. If he sang the phonebook it'd still sound better than 90 percent of singers singing great songs. 

Oh, and I want to look that good at 70.

this album is achingly sad.

Each ballad is him pouring his heart out. Very personal.

Have to admit I was not overly into this on first spin, but I read Glen's posts and had a quick look on wikipedia and wasn't aware of his past. Listened to the songs with that in mind and it definitely changed the strength of the album for me. 

It's not exactly my kind of jam (it is a very, very "soft" album), but there's at least 5 or so keepers on here for my 2018 playlist. Nice, deep album once I was made aware what the songs mean to the chap.
