Michael Tracy / Still Got Soul – CD Review

Artist: Michael | Tracy Label: Self-Produced Music Style: AOR , Melodic Rock , Stadium Rock

Michael Tracy / Still Got Soul 

Translated:

In 2011, Michael Tracy started his musical career as a singer / songwriter. That was on the occasion of a live performance in Charlotte, North Carolina. Already in the same year appeared the first album, “Enough Small Talk”. Four more records followed and now there is the new, “Still Got Soul”.

Tracy presents wonderful melodic old school rock full of harmonies and predominantly beautiful sound in widescreen format. A rich sound reminiscent of musicians like John Mellencamp , Bob Seger , Tom Petty,and occasionally coupled with the kind of music presented by Boston or Asia . This has resulted in a combination of typical eighties rock with an occasional touch of Westcoast Rock. Here you can listen well and relaxed and feel good.

Over the course of the season you will be confronted with different moods. From typical mainstream rock, melodic rock, it goes to varieties of arena rock, mostly on the bottom of the classic rock. Basically, it is mainly Adult Orientated Rock (AOR), which is sometimes fuller and stronger, sometimes gentler and more melodic, but always with the certain hooklines, pleasantly flowing in the solar plexus. With an expressive, if not necessarily powerful voice, which is often accompanied by background vocals, the singer Tracy creates a harmonic mood and more than once the eighties seem to be quoted, as the title song says:

»I still remember in ’81
I saw that Lucy in the sky and I was done
So now I dust off my old 45s
Here I am like I was 10 playing records thru the night«

“It’s been a long time since I rock n ‘roll
Got no faith but I still got soul
Might of been lost along the way
But I’m not afraid of yesterday.”

Anyway, you can feel how much Tracy is standing behind the songs with his soul and heart, always eager to convince a pleasant sound that quickly grabs and takes you as a listener. So the pleasing compositions have succeeded, albeit no masterpieces, but with a guarantee for a beautiful listening experience.

“Amazon. Google. CCR. Nirvana. Besides their overwhelming individual successes and influence, they all have something else in common: every single one of them started in a garage. Just like coders in a startup focus strictly on their core product, bands in their infancy tend to devote almost all of their time on music, and why wouldn’t they? Nobody wants to listen to bad music!

But you know what else they all have in common? They got their start in a garage but didn’t stay there. They became multibillion dollar industry leaders and sold out arenas. If you want to make a career in the music industry, you’ll have to tackle business issues with no less energy and creativity than you bring to the music.”
