I have to admit up front that much of Journey's music I can live without just fine but the clarity, range, subtlety and power of Steve Perry's vocal on this track caught my ear the first time I heard it and has never really let me go. On "Faithfully" Perry gives the kind of performance that separates an artist from the pack and turns what could have been just another song about how hard it is to be rich and famous into a bonafide classic that pretty much set the standard for all power ballads right to this day.
