Album Review

Because of the strength of the number three single "Oh Sherrie," the rest of Steve Perry's first solo album was somewhat overlooked, even though it managed to put three other songs into the Top 40. Even with Journey's power ballad formula draping every runny lyric and mawkish keyboard stretch, Perry was able to make the album sound relatively steadfast and sincere all the while. "Oh Sherrie" deserves it's chart placing, accentuating Perry's vocal power, especially throughout the explosive chorus. Both "Foolish Heart" and "She's Mine" aren't as strong, but they do provide the same type of romantically florid appeal that made "Open Arms" and "Faithfully" hits for Journey, minus the sturdiness of his former band. "I Believe" is pulled along by a catchy melody and highlighted by Steve Douglas' sax playing, but songs like "Strung Out" and "Running Alone" begin to drown in sugary currents of insipid fluff. Steve Perry does a respectable job in producing the album though, and the overall package comes off rather clean and bright. Street Talk proves that Perry's song writing and vocal prowess is worthy of its acclaim, but the musicianship that accompanies him throughout the album is noticeably weaker than what he is used to.

In a League of His Own

Though the combination of Steve Perry and Journey is pure magic, this album gave notice that Steve Perry could "Stand Alone". Oh, Sherrie is sure to make you keep the beat and sing along. I really like the softness and underplay of "Foolish Heart". " Running Alone" is one of my favorites off this album while Perry 's vocal range on "Makes No Difference" is insane ! I think he sings notes that go above and beyond the music scale ! There are moments when his voice merges and melts into one with the instrument. You can't tell where one ends and the other begins. I highly recommend this album.

AWESOME!!!

Steve Perry Has To Be The Best Male Singer Of ALL TIME!!!!

Steve isn't called the voice for no reason.

Steve Perry has the purest voice of anyone I've ever heard. He and Journey need to reunite. Together they are pure magic, Steve can hold his own against anyone but when you get Perry, Schon,and Cain together there is nothing better. Steve we need you back music needs you back and Journey needs you back. Journey needs to drop the posers and get the voice back out front.
