SURVIVOR 'Eye Of The Tiger Sony BMG (2005)


This album marked Survivor’s sales peak, driven by the US and UK number one hit single ‘Eye of the Tiger’ (although for me 1984’s ‘Vital Signs’ was their best album overall). The line-up here features original vocalist Dave Bickler (sporting a dodgy Frank Spencer style beret on the back cover!), who left the band after this album plus the core of guitarist Frankie Sullivan and Jim Peterik.

As for the songs well bar ‘I’M Not That Man Anymore’ everyone is a melodic rock gem from ‘Silver Girl’ (featuring some awesome soloing from Frankie Sulllivan) to the ballad ‘Ever Since The World Began’ - why not put this on the endless soft rock compilations for a change? ‘

Feels Like Love’ rocks like a good ‘un whilst the title track maybe overplayed but it is still a great song.

This re-release is re-mastered but sadly no bonus tracks. If you’ve not got this album in your collection just one question - why not?

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
