"Eye Of The Tiger" was the first tune I heard from this CD. I was a junior in high school, Rocky III was coming out, and this song was played all the time. This was the first that most people had ever heard of Survivor, even though this was their third album (following "Survivor" and "Premonition"). "Eye Of The Tiger" was also their first video for MTV, which I watched all the time back then. This song and album put them on the map, even though it would take a few years before they really made it big.
Everyone has heard "Eye Of The Tiger", as well as the hits from "Vital Signs" and "When Seconds Count", so why should you buy this CD when you can get the songs you are familiar with on the greatest hits CD? Well, if you like the rawer sound of the song "Eye Of The Tiger", the whole CD has that same feel. And there are some great songs on here. Every song is good, especially "I'm Not That Man Anymore" and "Ever Since The World Began".
If you were in middle school or high school in the 80's, and you liked Survivor, then chances are you have heard this CD at some point. If you are new to Survivor, keep in mind that this CD is one of the four with Dave Bickler on lead vocals, and his voice is not as polished as Jimi Jamison's. So it has a more raw sound than "Vital Signs" and the CDs that follow it. But all the Survivor CDs are excellent and are worth purchasing.
