An Excellent Introduction
on 14 January 2006
In a world of faceless pop wannabes and Rock which seems to concentrate purely on the negative, It's a breathe of fresh air to hear something as catchy and tuneful as it is powerful. Theres no one around like Survivor anymore, except perhaps the excellent Pride Of Lions, and Jim Peterik is involved in that anyway. This album will serve anyone interested as a great introduction to one of the best bands to be labelled AOR.
All of their albums are represented, with a roughly equal split between the early Dave Bickler material and the later Jimi Jamison era. Songs such as High On You, Is This Love and Desperate Dreams blasting out of the stereo make you feel like your cruising the american highways on a hot summer afternoon, it's pure feel good music. Caught in the Game, Didn't Know It Was Love and Poor Man's Son show their heavier side, while Eye Of The Tiger and Burning Heart need know introduction.
Survivor make you feel good, its that simple. Buy It!
