5.0 out of 5 stars Success and Other Complimentary Words that Play On the Title of the Album
I'm not very good at starting reviews so I guess I'll just say that this is a brilliant album. The music offered here is quite amazing and is one of the most emotional albums I have heard this year. The rich arrangements and almost chilling vocals create an unusual but very welcome experience.

Jon Anderson opens with one of the most triumphant album openers...

3.0 out of 5 stars Far better than his other solo works
Over the years, Jon Anderson has produced a variety of solo works, but I have found most of fairly unsuccessful - whether it's the Irish folk of The Promise Ring or the new age ambience of his Wyndham Hill albums. I quite like Toltec, but find most of his albums since the 1980s not really my thing. It almost seemed as if Anderson was trying to distance himself from YES. I...

5.0 out of 5 stars Survival and Other Stories, 21 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Survival & Other Stories (Audio CD)
An excellent recording. Nice variety of songs wonderfully sung. Couple of pieces would have been further enhanced if they were longer, for example unbroken spirit but even so is still a lovely song with excellent lyrics.

I would not have wanted to know anything about this before buying, as I am a Jon Anderson fan since the very beginning of "Yes". I just knew that this would be a valuable addition to my collection. It is so nice that some of my heroes are still around after all this time. Not quite sure what else to say apart that I have great enjoyment listening to Jon Anderson sing and remark to myself that he can still do this after after all this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jon Anderson - Survival, 6 Oct. 2012

This CD is quite extraordinary. CDs such as this are just not available in NZ and in rebuilding my Jon Anderson/Van Gelis collection I came across Survival. The lyrics, music fill a void within and put together some of the idiocies surrounding religion into context. Beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars jons best so far, 27 May 2012

This review is from: Survival & Other Stories (Audio CD)
Been a life long fan of yes and Jon Anderson, although some of Jons solo work is hard going. However, this really is a great album with not one bad song on it. Just one Man is outstanding. Well done Jon, Yes are lost without you.

This review is from: Survival & Other Stories (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of Jon Anderson in all his projects since 1969; got all the Yes albums and most of his collaborations and solo projects. However, there comes a time when when you really ought to stop. For me it should have been prior to buying this CD - a pale shadow of a lifelong friend.
