Survivor are best known for their two hit songs from the films Rocky III and Rocky IV in the 80’s. But as those two great songs attest this is a fantastic band and I’ve always felt I should investigate them further. This ‘best of’ compilation goes back to the late 70’s and 80’s stuff, and its really good. If you enjoy a good power ballad and some great rock anthems then Survivor are right up your street. This album is one for the car, great driving music. For the proce this album is a steal and you get a free MP3 of it too. Bargain.

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!!!!

If you only knew about "Eye of the Tiger" and "Burning Heart" and want some more, this compilation will suit your needs perfectly.

I have to say, though, that I didn't expect there to be as many ballads as there were. But that was just a surprise and not a bad thing at all, since all the songs are great.

The liner notes are excellent and go deep and are very interesting to read. This is the reason why I still favour CD's instead of digital downloads; it's just nice to have a neat little booklet to read the notes in.

If you like 80's music such as Foreigner, Asia and Styx, or rock music general, it's well worth your time.

I knew a couple of surviver songs from the rocky movies, but nothing else. The song, Is it love , is blasted out when I'm in the car. There are a few great songs on the album. Across the miles, is another favourite.

I would recommend this to anyone, even my nephews 25 and 29 both tap their feet to this album...
