Love has got me - B+ A slower song.

Well, my tape got stolen, my young son trashed my turntable, and all I had were some old tapes with some of these songs at the end.

I discovered the band Survivor with the famous "Eye of the Tiger" hit, so I just wanted to try a Best-of album and any other album in their discography. I decided to try this first effort of Survivor because it contained no songs from the Best-of.
And now, I'm completely amazed of it. This is a great rock album.
I don't own the other albums but I guess this one is the BEST.
Believe me, it really rocks, better than "Eye of the tiger".
Personal ratings :
Somewhere in America - B+
"Somewhere in America, she waits for me...". Nice story, but the guitar riffs could be more elaborate.
Can't getcha offa my mind - A+
First amazing song. This synthesiser intro, yeah ! The subject of the song is common, but what a pleasure to hear this !
Let it be now - A+
My personnal favorite. It has a loud and catchy chorus that surronds you. What an atmosphere in this song !
As soon as love finds me - A
An interesting song that has a good vocals demonstration in the middle, followed by a guitar solo.
Youngblood - B+
A generic chorus, quite monotonous.
This song has a vocal solo.
Love has got me - B+
A slower song. The chorus is a little boring.
This time, the singer is Jim Peterik.
Whole town's talkin' - A
An interesting intro on acoustic guitar.
The chorus is slow and nice, like on a ballad.
20/20 - A
Survivor is pretty good for chorus.
This song has a good guitar demo.
If I had a mark to give, it would be 20/20.
Freelance - B+
Hmm... This reminds me a lot "Runnin' with the devil" from Van Halen. Similar guitar intro, similar first sentence.
Nothing can shake me (From Your Love) - A+
This song is a ballad. A soft song that becomes suddenly hard.

I originally bought this record in 1985, and I was blown away. I played the heck out of the record, made a tape of it, and put songs at the end of tapes I made of other records. Well, my tape got stolen, my young son trashed my turntable, and all I had were some old tapes with some of these songs at the end. I'd given up hope of ever finding this on CD, but finally it's here.
This CD is a lot more guitar-heavy than the later, Jimi Jamison era stuff, which may or may not be to your liking. Keyboards are not prominent on this CD, although they are used to nice effect when they are used. Jim Peterik is credited with playing guitar rather than keyboards like on the later stuff.
I just completed my Survivor collection with "Premonition" and "Caught In The Game". A reviewer for "Premonition" alluded to the varied sound of this CD compared to their later CDs, and after listening to all the Dave Bickler era CDs, I have to agree. It doesn't have quite as much of that "Survivor" sound that is evident on their later stuff. The drummer and bass players are not the same as in their following releases, and these two guys do have a lot of songwriting credits on this CD, so that may be part of the difference. Just about every other song on their next three CDs are written solely by Jim Peterik and Frankie Sullivan. But, despite the slightly different sound, this is a most excellent CD. Not a bad tune in the bunch.
If you like the sounds of "Vital Signs" and "When Seconds Count", with their increased emphisis on keyboards, then this might be a little hard for you. Chances are you've never heard any of these tunes on radio. But if you are a Survivor fan, and if you like guitar-based hard melodic rock, grab this one now!

It's hard to believe that it took Survivor so long to rerelease their entire catalogue on CD, but they finally did it, and it's a good thing. I've heard all of their other albums, but couldn't find this one anywhere until now. While it may lack some of the depth of their later albums, it contains some of their catchiest, rocking melodies ever. As some of the other reviews pointed out, this one is more guitar-based than the Jim Jamison stuff is, and at times, it almost has an "Iron Maiden-lite" feel to it. Perhaps some people will be turned off by the lack of ballads which infused albums like Vital Signs and When Seconds Count, but if you're just looking for catchy, feel-good rock, definitely give this a try.

I remember seeing Survivor at Rock It North, a tiny club just across the border in Wisconsin where 18 year olds could still legally drink. The band at that time had a not yet strong local following. Wow!! This was one terrific band that unfortunately fell into the homogenized trap that also befell Styx, REO, Journey, and others. I heartily recommend this album.
Anyway, to answer the above post: Rebel Girl was not on the original release. It should have been, as it is a great song. It was released on a 45 only. I wish I still knew where mine was. I have the song on a 25 year old TDK casette, and it still sounds good.

My initial intuition about the songs on "Survivor" was that they'd sound sturdy but unremarkable, technically proficient but on the dull side.

I was wrong.

One can easily envision these guys touring with a big-named hard rock back in the late 1970s, early-`80s, cranking out their arena-ready but forgotten songs onstage from this impressive debut album. What makes Survivor stand out is the band's genuine sincerity. These guys wanted to rock the world from day one, and each of these tunes contains from-the-heart, streetwise grit that paved the way for Survivor's ubiquitous presence on sports-themed movie soundtracks in the `80s.

The production, tone and sound of this record remind me of early Sammy Hagar and especially of the classic era of Foreigner with Lou Gramm. Though Survivor has always belted out this type of straight-ahead rock sound, the members aren't afraid to shake things up. "Can't Getcha Offa My Mind," for instance, leads off with a rubbery synthesizer bit that calls to mind The Cars. The awesome "Love Has Got Me" boasts a gospel-like chorus that is impossible not to sing along with. On "Nothing Can Shake Me," Dave Bickler screams out lyrics as if his life depends on it, on a song that sounds a little like Judas Priest. ("Freelance" kind of reminds me of Judas Priest as well.) If you're looking for tunes that sound like radio-ready hits, "Whole Town's Talkin'," "20/20" and "Somewhere in America" all fit the bill.

Overall, this is a surprisingly cool record that shows the promise of a band bursting with talent, energy and the world of rock `n' roll stardom ahead of them.
