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.

    • 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.
