This is one of those rare album where virtually every song sounds like it could be a melodic rock hit. As others have mentioned, this album is clearly poppier than its predecessors, but in this case that just makes it an even more amazing album.
Three of the best hits of the '80s are on this album in "I Can't Hold Back", "High On You", and "The Search Is Over". Most everyone who is familiar with Survivor likely knows these wonderful songs. "First Night" is the hardest rocker on this album, and its changes in tempo make it an exciting track. "Broken Promises" and "Popular Girl" are similar-sounding gorgeous anthems. "Everlasting" is a sweet near-ballad. "It's The Singer Not The Song" is an exceptionally catchy track with fantastic lyrics. The last track, "I See You In Everyone" to me is the weakest track, but it is still great and kind of a ballad. Wow, is this an amazing bunch of songs!
As a fan of great melodic rock bands like this, I would in no way want every album to sound like this. I also love the more rock-based sound of more obscure Survivor albums like "Caught In The Game" and "Too Hot Too Sleep" as well as the also-poppy followup to this album "When Seconds Count". For sure, these guys have had a lot of great albums and songs. This one is simply them at their commercial peak--very understandable considering the beauty of these songs. A highly recommended purchase as a true '80s classic.
