I just listened to Steve Perry's "Street Talk," and I think it's a great Soul/Pop crossover album.

The first tune, "Oh, Sherrie," is a great rocker. I think that Journey's "Raised On Radio" album is reminiscent of this tune. It has great vocal by Steve Perry, and Michael Landeau is really good on guitar.

The second song, "I Believe," is a great soul tune. It kind of reminds me of a male version of a Supremes' tune. It's soulful and upbeat! I also like the sax solo.

"Go Away," is a bit slower and a lot smoother. I think there's a soft and smooth way Steve Perry croons with feeling on this, with a great, heartfelt guitar solo.

"Foolish Heart," is a really nice ballad with beautiful keyboard flourishes and smooth vocal inflections.

"It's Only Love," is a great mid-tempo rocker with a lot of screamin' soul from Steve Perry and a rockin' guitar solo from Michael Landeau.

"She's Mine," is a nice, mid-tempo, soul tune with great vocals, but even though I like playing the sax, Steve Douglas' solo doesn't impress me.

"You Should Be Happy," is nice mid-tempo soul/rock, with good vocals from Steve Perry, but Michael's guitar work is just OK.

"Running Alone," is an OK ballad. The only thing it has going for it is good vocal from Steve Perry.

"Captured By The Moment," is good. Steve's voice is good, and Michael has a good guitar riff going.

And last, but not least, "Strung Out," is a great rocker to finish off the album. Steve Perry's vocal inflections are great; and Michael Landeau's guitar solo is really good on this one.

It's soul/pop at its best, and it was probably the best time for Steve to leave Journey and record a solo album. It's just a shame that he hasn't done more lately.
