Great Review Andrew - ON ANDREW'S FRONT PAGE

STEVE PERRY - No Erasin' (Single Review)

http://www.melodicrock.com/

The first line of No Erasin’ says it all – I know its been a long time comin’… - the same line Steve Perry teased fans with just yesterday. Who thought we’d be listening to the first single and watching the new video just 24hrs later?

No Erasin’ is a triumphant return – Steve’s first new song in 20 years – and it’s classic Perry all the way. This is a GREAT song. That’s the most important aspect. It’s a personal message, which I will presume is going to be the continued theme of the album as a whole.

The voice? It’s there, it’s absolutely there. It’s different, yet so familiar.

Twenty years since we last heard Steve on record and you can hear the differences. In the same way Steve’s voice matured from the insanely high notes of Escape and Frontiers, to the deeper and more soulful Street Talk, Trial By Fire and Strange Medicine albums, so to has it further matured to be an understandably older voice. Raspier and yes, more fallible, but each time I play this song I have to pause afterwards and just appreciate how good he still sounds.

The production is first rate – the mix is exquisite, and every musical nuance can be heard. On the surface it seems a pretty simple song, but depth comes with time and there is so much depth here. From the classic Steve Perry soul-harmonies of his solo work and the many layers of backing vocals, to the vocal inflections such as at 1.05 and 1.40 in the song – it’s just classic “solo” Perry all the way. And the melody bridge at 3.50 – perfection.

The video is a joy to watch, just look at Steve’s face – you know he’s loving this and you can feel it.

It’s a huge sound. It may not be the faster, heavier album intro that was You Better Wait and it may well be that the album is fairly laid back and ballad heavy, but with this raspy tone and the personal lyrical style Steve does, that makes for a really compelling album and I can’t wait to hear more.

Putting aside the fanboy happiness to hear Steve back again, this single has already surpassed my expectations. Thank you Steve Perry.

Fans may have thought Steve Perry had stopped believin’, but after a two-decade recording hiatus, the reclusive ex-Journey singer has finally released “No Erasin’,” the lead single off his 10-song comeback album and third proper solo effort, Traces, due out Oct. 5. The man who recently ranked at No. 76 on Rolling Stone’s list of Greatest Singers of All Time sounds in fine form — perhaps a bit raspier, a bit world-wearier, but still evoking Journey’s anthemic Escape era — on the strident, arena-ready power ballad.

Perry’s last two releases were his 1994 solo album For the Love of Strange Medicine, followed in 1996 by Journey’s Trial by Fire and the solo song “I Stand Alone” for the Quest for Camelot soundtrack in 1998. Since then, he has kept a low profile.

In 2014, he performed onstage for the first time in 20 years, singing three songs with his friend Mark Everett’s indie rock band Eels at a club show in St. Paul, Minnesota; however, when he attended last year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, at which Journey was inducted, he opted not to perform with his former bandmates, whom he had not seen in over a decade.

On his website, Perry explains his reasons for finally returning to the scene. “Years ago, I disappeared. There were many reasons, but mainly… my love for music had suddenly left me. I knew that simply stopping, was what I had to do. If music was ever to return to my heart, then and only then I would figure out what to do,” he begins. “If not… so be it, for I had already lived the dream of dreams.”

Perry explains that he eventually felt his creative spark rekindled, and “then another beautiful thing happened. I found love. My precious Kellie gave me a life I never knew I had. I lost her December of 2012. … May of 2015, I began recording. These songs are special to me. I respectfully ask that you please listen to them.”

Perry is referring to his girlfriend, psychologist Kellie Nash. In a touching blog post on the Fan Asylum website in 2013, Perry revealed that he fell for Nash in May 2011 after seeing her in Five, a Lifetime TV special about breast cancer survivors, and asking the director, his friend Patty Jenkins, to introduce them.

When Jenkins informed him that Nash’s cancer had returned and was now in Stage 4, Perry knew meeting Nash and possibly getting attached was an emotional risk, but he still wanted to be fixed up. Once the two met in person, it was love at first sight, and they “both knew that we were meant to be together.”

Perry was by Nash’s side as she underwent alternative treatment, and the couple “had the most magical summer of our lives together”; they dated for a year and a half before Nash ultimately lost her cancer battle. “She was so strong, so courageous and we really loved each other so very much,” Perry wrote in his blog. “Though Kellie and I were only together for one-and-a-half years, it was a lifetime of love packed into every moment.”

Speaking to ABC Radio in 2017, Perry described Traces as “an emotional expression” and confessed, “It’s been a real cathartic experience going back to that emotional place that I thought I would never go back to. And we really have been doing our very best to capture what I think are some timeless songs.”

Traces is available for pre-order here.

To me, seeing the video helped the song "click". It's all about expectations. I don't expect him to have the Journey pipes (nor should any of us) so it's easy for me. It's a gift of sort. I'm taking this shit in...and lovin' it.

I have to wonder what Neil, Jon and the rest are thinking right now.

Targets a better deal than Amazon.

His voice sounds pretty solid. Very ordinary sounding song, though. More '88 than '18, but that's to be expected.

I believe this is a physical CD. Says limited copies avail. In my area, I can no longer walk into a store and buy CDs. Even best buy here stopped. Best bet is to pre order this and be safe you get it.
