3.0 out of 5 stars Rising up to the challange of it's title... April 23 2007
Format:Audio CD
Aside from the highly celebrated title tune, Survivor's lyrics and song construction often leave something to be desired, but that shouldn't necessarily detract from the fact that their music is frequently peppered with flourishes of emotion.

Ostensibly they avoided the pitfall of cloning the title track, but this may have been a misstep as "I'm Not That Man Anymore" hauntingly echos "Eye of the Tiger"; lacking only its muted-string guitar rhythm and notariety. "American Heartbeat" draws it's tension from a similar pool of drama, but trades the warm tones of a grand piano for synthesized vamps.

After a few quick listens it isn't difficult to see why Survivor often falls under the guise of a faceless AOR rock band. Interestly enough, the band was more distinctive than their contemporaries like REO Speedwagon, yet they never put out songs that tugged at people's heartstrings quite like the work of Journey or Foreigner. This is cruel irony when you consider that lead vocalist Dave Bickler "Eye of the Tiger" and then later Jimi Jamison "Burning Heart" & "The Search is Over" could sing rings around Foreigner's Lou Gramm and any member of REO Speedwagon.

All things considered, this is an album that will rarely get repeated play beyond the first dozen or so listenings even though the song "Eye of the Tiger" stands head and shoulders above other rock songs in the hearts of so many. The other songs are well recorded, but just not as well constructed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated all because of that title tune May 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is my fav. hard edge rock record of '82. From the title track, people may have forgotten how "beautiful" the other tunes are. Bickler possibly the greatest vocalist Ive ever heard was, is in top form here.
What more can I say but just try it out and LOUD! You might even shed a tear or two (for missing this 80's gem), not to mention the ballads, Ever Since the World Began (a precursor to Vital Signs "The Search is Over" (But I think ESTWB is superior),and the immaculate Silver Girl. "just one golden memory, my Silver Girl".
Don't forget the rockers, Hesitation Dance (funkish rocker, IMO), Children of the Night (play that guitar Frankie!) and "Feels like Love" and get your andrenaline going!, and American Heartbeat.
For mid tempo try the brilliant Peterik written "The one that really matters" which I think should have been a top tenner in the charts if not of lack of promotion by the record co. (which is another matter).
Have a great day!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than meets the "Eye..." April 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you want to know why you shouldn't pass this up for just a greatest hits package of the Survivor, the reasons I would give are primarily "Hesitation Dance" and "Silver Girl." Add to that, Dave Bickler on lead vocals and Frankie Sullivan on guitar, two names that should be mentioned a lot more in discussions of great rock musicians (but we always seem to hear about the more controversial ones.) Another reviewer described "Hesitation Dance" as tight, heavy rock, and that is right on: soaring vocals from Bickler, and tight, crunchy guitar riffs from Sullivan, who also unleashes power-chord glory during the chorus. "Silver Girl" is a well-composed song with a nice but brief piano break from Jim Peterik before Sullivan comes flying in with an awesome guitar solo. Bickler comes back singing the chorus with even greater intensity than before, and Sullivan leaves us with yet more spirited lead playing up to and during the fade out. So, get the greatest hits for the radio tunes, but for truly cool material you may not have yet heard, I would check this out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong AOR hard rock Jan. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
THese guy were talented, and had the benefit of possessing the amazing voice of Dave Bickler among their ranks! THis guy can sing, I assure you!!
Skiping the cheesy lyrics, this is a solid hard rock album, where even the ballads sound great. It's obviously the work of gifted musicians.
However, like thousands of other bands, SURVIVOR somehow dissapeared along the way. This album is their best record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way better then Journey Sept. 2 2002
Format:Audio CD
Survivor was a much more talented band then Journey. This album is one of the great AOR metal records of the early 80's. If you like Foreigner, this is a band that can easily equal them. This is heavy. I have heard people compare this band to TOTO. I don't think so. This is heavy all the way through. I don't know why every song on this record wasn't a hit, because they are all very good and catchy songs. If you like the AOR metal of the late 70's and early 80's, you will love this record. You will wonder why this band was overshadowed by bands like Def Leppard.

5.0 out of 5 stars The prototype for popular melodic rock July 16 2002
By Brad
Format:Audio CD
This band has all great albums, including this one which brought them into the limelight some 20 years ago. The title track is one of the most energetic, rocking singles in popular music history (in my opinion); but as the lead track on this album it is only a foretaste of what is to come. This entire album is high quality melodic rock.
"Feels Like Love" is a catchy, passionate rocker with impossibly good harmonies. "I'm Not That Man Anymore" is a dramatic power ballad that rocks in spots. "Ever Since The World Began" should have been a huge hit--a spine-tingling, heartfelt ballad that touches the soul. (Interesting side note: Tommy Shaw of Styx fame remade this song on a solo album he put out five years later; that version is good enough to have been a hit, too!) "American Heartbeat" is a top 20 single heavy on the keyboards that is a prototype Survivor anthem of that time. I could rave about all of the other tracks on this album as well; they are all fantastic.
Survivor was truly a band for the ages. To this day, they rank as one of the best ever melodic rock bands. While one song on this one album is what brought them into the limelight, I must emphasize (again) that all of their albums and most of their songs are well worth a listen. The "other 8 tracks" on this album are no exception.

Ah, Survivor, the sound of the early '80's, when Def Leppard was king, and disco was fading fast. I was but a young lad, but I do recall it a bit. Read more
