Always a Steve Perry Fan
I’ve loved him from the beginning of his career.
I am somewhat disappointed in the album.
But I can totally understand why he did it.
As far as his voice it of course isn’t what it use to be.
When u don’t use it u lose it. I think with his discovery of his love for music returned he will get better.
Practice make perfect. He will never be the same as he was when we were all younger back in the 80’s and to expect it to be is simply unrealistic.
I will always love him and love his music.
I do hope as he moves past this phase of his life that he does do a more upbeat album.
But a true fan I will always be.
And sorry but Journey is nothing without him.
He made them. Unfortunately things don’t work out the way we want.
We can’t go back only forward.
Magical as always
If you grew up in 70s and 80s Steve Perry’s voice probably enhances your memories. I love that he’s back, to whatever capacity he is comfortable with it, would love to see him live just because I never had the chance before but otherwise I’ll just keep enjoying his song writing. Hope he sings something with a symphony someday too. I’m proud of him that he had the wisdom to take a break from fame, he’s been through some stuff in life I’m sure and he decided to go have a life. Thank you Steve Perry for all the great music!
The Legend is back!!!
One of the greatest voices in rock and roll has returned after a 25 year hiatus!! And it’s amazing!!! Voice is incredible as always!!
Lacks guitar, lacks the punch of his great songs of the past. These songs are unlistenable to me.
No more Cryin’, he is back!

So thankful that Mr.Perry found his inspiration to sing again. Music isn’t the same when the “bigs” are not involved in it.
I found the songs soulful and a great base beat. Journey was my introduction into music and I’ve been a fan/follower ever since.
Obviously this is not 1984 and this is not a Journey release. I've listened to this entire release a couple times now, and although a few are not happy with slower arrangements failing to test the limits of his voice, one must remember that Steve went MIA for over 30 years and he is now a 69 year old guy! I can appreciate why and how this project came to be. He is not a slave of the big 'Music Machine' and doesn't have to release anything if he doesn't want to. Traces is a pretty mellow release, and I appreciate his efforts with each of these songs coming from his heart with the newfound relationship and loss of his girlfriend. I'm hoping this could possibly lead to more releases down the road, but for now I'll take it. Traces- No Erasin' and No More Cryin' are comparable to earlier (slower) Journey work. After listening to CD's from yesteryear and jumping right back to Traces, his voice is more scratchy these days, but again, I'll take it as will most of you.
Thank you Kelly Nash!!! Steve is back!!! Songs r great!!! As usual ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
What is this, Ballads are us? Weak songs, no drive, nothing more than love songs. Give me a break Steve. This is what you been spening time writing all these years? Agggg!
Just listened to the whole CD and thought it was very good. The orchestral backing was excellent. His voice sounded fine to me. Definitely worth a listen and download.
Thank You Steve Perry
I’m so happy that you are back. Your story is a inspiration. Thank you for your music
