Best Survivor album by far
on 9 May 2017
Had to write a review having read some others.
I bought this cd quite some time ago, and i can tell you it is superb. The problem often encountered with bands like survivor is that the songs are a bit wishy washy and are recorded in a flat way, which makes for a very bland album. That is, if the recording was sharper etc. the songs would probably sound much improved, Also of course, Survivor were a fairly low profile band until Eye of the Tiger which of course was huge.The problem then is that a band suddenly propelled into the musical stratosphere are under pressure to keep writing and recording classic songs. The record company applying appropriate pressure to keep the momentum going. Not necessary here. The songs are all classy, and the recording is sharp. Indeed, there are some superb classic songs on the album. Survivor themselves have said in the past that they wanted to be seen as a rock band and not a rock ballads band, and this album is a perfect blend of both. If you havent heard it, your missing out, believe me.
Quite simply a classic album. In my opinion, their best.
