There are multiple Survivor GH collections available, some easier to find than others. Here's some info to compare / contrast what is on them:

1990 - Survivor Greatest Hits 1 - 10 songs, all previously released material, all hits

1993 - Survivor Greatest Hits 2 - 13 songs, including two new songs (I didn't really like them)

2001 - Fire In Your Eyes (Import) - 18 songs, really good collection of hits

2001 - Prime Cuts (Import) - 18 songs, not all the hits, but many excellent album cuts

2004 - Ultimate Survivor - 18 songs, all major and most minor hits, two previously unreleased tunes

I've reviewed all but the 1990 GH CDs, and the first four have varying availability on amazon.com.

For the casual fan who just wants the big radio hits, this CD has them. I personally like all the songs, but if you're mainly interested in the hits, this might be more than you really want. But who knows, you may love the ones you haven't heard yet. Their sound evolved, but remained consistent - there's not as much contrast here as there is with many bands' GH collections.

If you like just about everything you've heard from Survivor but you're not ready to get all their CDs, this is definitely a good place to start. It has songs from all seven studio albums, plus their huge hit "Burning Heart" from the "Rocky IV" soundtrack.

For those of you who are like me and own all the other Survivor CDs, getting this one comes down to three songs:

- Rebel Girl - the elusive tune which was left off the debut album (but can apparently be found on some Japanese versions of that CD). It's been hyped quite a bit. It's a catchy guitar-driven tune.

Good song selection. Good liner notes. But it sounds as if this cd was burned directly from the first generation cd copies of all the releases.
The first song "Eye of the Tiger" is mastered at the correct level. By the time you get to "I Can't Hold Back", you need to really turn up the volume to get the same loudness. Then when you get to "High On You", it is suddenly apparent that all the songs from "Vital Signs" are the same (LOW) Volume and all of the songs from "Too Hot To Sleep are at a different volume and the same for "Caught in the Game" and "When Seconds Count". If you have audio equipment that shows the playback levels this is a very obvious blunder. It has nothing to do with the album to album sound. This is really a pain if you burn compilation cd's and are used to remastered recordings being mastered at a certain loudness. The sound is fine, but was it really 'remastered'? There is no excuse for this up then down volume problem. This is worse than some budget compilations.
One other thing. There are a few essential songs missing. Where is "She's A Star" and "The One That Really Matters". Survivor had some great 'Rock' songs too.
Survivor fan's deserved a little better quality from this retrospective.

Well I love Survivor ever since they came up with "Eye Of The Tiger", I was only 10! I owned in the past few years several compilations, including the 1990 "Greatest Hits" that had 13 tracks, then I bought "Greatest Hits 2" to complete some of their best hits. In 1999 I bought the Japanese import "The search is over: Best Selection" that was the only compilation that included two greatest songs "I never stopped loving you" and "Ever since the world began". In 2001, I purchased the German import "Fire in your eyes" and I got to tell you the recording was superior to the so called "Original Recording Remastered" from Volcano "Ultimate Survivor" that I own presently. However, it is the best compilation so far but few essential tracks are missing such "Moment of truth", "I never stopped loving you" and "Ever since the world began".

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that Survivor is a great band and they deserve a DOUBLE DISC compilation.

Buy this one it is still the best in the market.

THE ULTIMATE SURVIVOR is just as good a collection as GREATEST HITS, containing several songs not on the earlier collection, including the rare single "Rebel Girl" (improved on in a cover version by the Outlaws), the unreleased original version of "Rockin' Into The Night" (which jump-started .38 Special's career), the full-length version of "Summer Nights", and the VITAL SIGNS album track "First Night." You should get both collections, as well as the studio albums EYE OF THE TIGER and VITAL SIGNS.

This is a terrific disc with a superior track selection covering this groups remarkable career. But I am weary when I see the word "remastered" as it can be an enhancement or a step back from the original. I did some comparisons to the "Best of Survivor" 14 track CD from 2006 which to my ear has the best sounding mastering thus far. With this "Ultimate" collection some songs sound better than even the 2006 disc most notably "Caught in the Game" which they did a fantastic job on. "Eye of the Tiger" & "American Heartbeat" sounds a little better but nothing remarkable. "Poor Man's Son" while slightly improved suffers during the tinny guitar solo. Burning Heart" is a little too brash. "Is this Love" and "Summer Nights" are not too affected but the volume on "Somewhere in America" is lowered for some reason.

The worst offenders are the 3 tracks from the "Vital Signs" album which sound over-produced "I can't hold back", "High on You" & "The Search is Over" seem shallow & thin compared to the 2006 disc which had a robust natural sound.

The tracks on the Ultimate CD that don't appear on the 2006 disc like "First Night" "Across the Miles" & "Desperate Dreams" actually sound better than they're original releases with improved clarity and separation.

Bottom line... If you don't have the 2006 Hits disc to compare you'll certainly enjoy this as the music is great. Even if your a semi-audiophile your gonna want the two exclusive tracks.
