Quite simply the best album by one of the most underated rock bands of all time. The sound and production are amazing. I would have to say that the recording is as good as I have ever heard. My fave tracks are `She`s a Star` (terrific guitar by Frankie), `Here Comes Desire` (very very catchy rock song), and `Desperate Dreams` (a single with a killer melody/hook). There are no filler tracks!!!
Mickey Curry on drums shows again what a class act he is and Jimi Jamison`s voice has never sounded better. This album should have been huge, I don`t know what the record company were doing but they really messed up by not getting behind this like they should have.
A timeless classic...........BUY IT NOW!!!!!!!!

Recruiting Jimi Jamison to replace the ailing Dave Bickler proved to be a masterstroke as his muscular vocals gave 'Vital Signs' the punch that earlier Survivor albums lacked. Following up that classic with the spotty 'When Seconds Count' meant that 'Too Hot to Sleep' had to be a near classic in its own right. And it delivers in spades!! The title track, 'Didn't Know It Was Love' and 'Across The Miles' are worth the price of admission on their own. The other tracks may pale by comparison to those gems but for any other band they would be stand out songs. If you can find a copy of the album at a sensible price, buy it!

This album is arguably their best ! Each track is classic Survivor with Jimi Jamison on lead vocals. 'Didn't know it was love' and 'Desperate Dreams' are the strongest tunes, followed closely by the title track 'Too hot to sleep' and the haunting 'Burning Bridges'. Well worth a listen !

I have every survivor album - and this as got to be the best of the bunch (though Vital Signs is pretty close!).
After listening to the tracks on this album it got me thinking - are Survivor one of the most underrated bands ever? Unfortunately, I'm afraid this is the case ..... most remember them for the tracks Eye of the Tiger, Burning Heart - and maybe even American Heartbeat. But I think any Survivor listener will agree .... these are not really the best the've produced - though, pretty good in their own right.

I can't praise this ablum enough .... every track is an absolute gem .....

The one track that really stands out for me though is track 7 - Across the Miles.

This I find is a hidden classic .... a real tear jerker , sung from the heart. Immense and absolutely out of this world.

If your missing someone - and you can't see or hear them - listen to this - I guarantee if you listen to the lyrics properly, you'll be in tears.....

In conclusion ..... I would say if you only buy one survivor album, make it this !!!!!

Well it was many years ago when i became a survivor fan, i had always liked the punchy sound of survivor, this album from 1988 proved to be their swan song, what an album! its sad to think this was their last until 'reach' years later! every track a class act!! no matter what mood your in this album has it. my favourite is track 1 shes a star!! turn that baby up its survivor at their most rockin!!! but as mentioned this is a class album from start to finish!! right that said im off to listen to it now!! well worth the price for a timeless band!

I have to say that Survivor was and still is one of the unluckiest bands ever. After this great and tottaly ignored album they splet in 1989 and could never get back together properly for more than two decades. Problems, problems, problems !! The next album (Reach) was released in 06 or 07 after long delays.. Then they slow down again , and finnaly Jimi Jamison dies...! What tragedy.... We have to wait an' see what will happen next... SAAAD! !!!

This Cd was ordered for a friend who has only just started to go digital. They are very pleased to now be able to listen to music that they have loved for years, but had to wait for radio stations to play their favourite tunes. This was a great buy.

Too hot to sleep, the "lost" Survivor album : one of their best, Jimi Jamison rules and the guys rock like beasts, check "rhythm of the city", more balls than an entire guns n roses album ! buy or die ! BUY OR DIE !

Another excellent album from Survivor. Survivor at their best with a great combination of tracks. If you like Vital Signs then you'll love this album too, a must buy!
