Throughout this year, I have become a massive fan of AOR. With the rubbish that is released today, it's good to see that the 80's is making a come back, with bands such as Sunstorm, H.E.A.T., Eclipse and Hardline presenting modern "hair metal" to the new generation. Nevertheless, as great as these bands do in recreating the authentic cheese, I thought I would try out an actual group from the 80's decade itself.
Of course, who hasn't heard of Survivor?!! They feature on both the Rocky 3 and 4 soundtracks, and that's enough to make the "King of Nobody's" famous!! However, it's all very well citing two songs from their career, but it's very hard to judge a band when you've got so many gaps to fill in their discography. Listening to this album has made me really appreciate this band. Every song appeals to me, and it's an album I simply can't stop listening to. Journey recently made a comeback, but it would be great to see the new generation truly come to appreciate the AOR music genre by embracing Survivor. Arguably, nobody does it better! Bring on the ROCK!!!!
