4.0 out of 5 stars Nice follow up to eye of the tiger, 1 April 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is the last to feature powerhouse singer dave bickler, the songs are almost an extension of eye of the tiger, very soulful and very classic survivor, and the last set of songs that were written from the guitar, what i like best about this album is the mood swings from ballard to punchy rock, (something survivor almost abandoned on their next two albums) but here is a band that capture raw emotion and keep hitting out tune after tune a must for any collection!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Caught in the Game" closed a chapter in "Survivor" history - now remastered to perfection! 6 May 2012
By Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Re-issued by "Rock Candy Records" is "Caught in the game", the fourth studio album by leading US melodic rock outfit "Survivor". Originally released in 1983, "Caught in the game" was the last album to feature original vocalist Dave Bickler fronting the band.

Building on the success of the previous album "Eye of the Tiger", "Survivor" attempted to introduce an even more sophisticated approach to their melodic rock, Along these lines "Caught in the Game" retains all their characteristic elements including the majestic keyboard harmonies, the melodic guitar lines and driving bass, this time adding bolder opening guitar riffs, lengthier choruses, bigger choirs and groovier rhythm section.

Clearly "Caught in the Game" debuted a musical style for "Survivor" that would characterize the following Jimi Jamison-led albums. "Caught in the game" does not quite bare the popular hit-single amongst its tracks, yet features by far the most intense performances and ambitious songwriting by "Survivor" up to that time. The re-mastering process really works miracles on this album; the guitars finally get the depth and attack they deserve while the rhythm section comes out thicker and clearer than ever before. This re-issue of "Caught in the Game" is satisfaction guarantee for any fan of melodic rock, providing a worthwhile purchase even for those who own previous CD versions of this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost gem 21 Aug 2010

This is a great CD!
I love the early SURVIVOR - They really knew how to ROCK! Later on they got too "POP" oriented. This Album should have been well received, but unfortunately it was not. If you love early SURVIVOR then this is the album for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Caught in the biz 13 Nov 2012
By Sal Nudo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was psyched to hear "Caught in the Game" for two reasons: 1) It was the final Survivor record with lead singer Dave Bickler, and 2) this album is sandwiched between the massively successful "Eye Of The Tiger" and "Vital Signs" records, the latter of which featured new singer Jimi Jamison -- how would "Caught in the Game" stack up?

Like lots of albums from the 1980s, Survivor's fourth LP contains some familiar trappings. The music on "Caught in the Game" is a bit too formulaic for its own good, likely the result of record execs forcing Survivor to craft a pleasingly commercial sound. There's keyboard work here that comes off as overly clinical, while certain background vocals by the band are too sugary-sounding and even misplaced. Additionally, the buoyant pop sound on some of these tracks feels a tad unnatural.

But the good news is this: While there may not be a standout hit song like "Eye of the Tiger" on this record, at least it consistently aims to please, albeit in a more manufactured way than on past Survivor records. "I Never Stopped Loving You" is a love song on par with the hit tracks sung by Jamison on Survivor's succeeding album, while the mid-tempo stomper "Half Life" would fit well on the "Rocky IV" soundtrack. Astutely, Survivor saved the best two songs -- "Slander" and "Santa Ana Winds" -- for last. "Slander" is easily the best tune on the record, an "Eye of the Tiger"-like ditty that captures the band's man-of-the-street essence. "Santa Ana Winds," meanwhile, qualifies as Survivor's "epic" track at over six minutes long. Reflective, poetic and containing a lonely desert sound reminiscent of an Eagles track, "Santa Ana Winds" was a fitting way for Bickler to exit the Survivor scene.

And then it was on to Jimi Jamison and a new era ...

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Survivor Album 26 Jan 2012
By Guitarzan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is a perfect snapshot of '80's rock, before all of the hair and makeup came along. It does sound dated, mostly due to the keyboards, but hey, it was state-of-the-art in 1983. I remember the title song, but I hadn't heard any of the other ones, prior to buying this album. I have to say though, it may just be the perfect '80's rock album. It's all there: solid, pounding drum beat, screaming distorted Les Paul guitars, cheesy keyboards, and great lead vocals by original lead singer, Dave Bickler. I just can't understand why this album didn't do better than it did, back in the day. Even guys I know who are die-hard '80's rock fans have a hard time remembering it. After a few listens to the title track, you see the light bulb come on, but it's not the first song you think of, when you think of Survivor. Check out the video for "Caught in the Game" on Youtube, while you're at it. Love this album....brings back memories of a time when rock was fun, exciting, and fresh. Not like a lot of the stuff today, that just depresses you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caught in the Game 14 April 2013
By Rick Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good Survivor album with a little more Rock to it. The best tracks on this album are; Jackie Don't Go, I Never Stopped Loving You, It Doesn't Have To Be This Way and Half-life. If you like Survivor's other albums then I would recommend this.
