Survivor - 1979 Survivor
A get together of local area Chicago musicians who came from bands such as Ides Of March/Jim Peterik Band, Jamestown Massacre/Mariah and Chase. The beginning of a successful run for one of AOR's best loved bands.

Survivor - 1981 Premonition
The first two Survivor albums often fall under the radar when compared to their later material, but both are able to stand up with the best of their catalogue.

Survivor - 1982 Eye Of The Tiger
We all remember the riff.. right? One of the most identifiable intros to music, that has been used a thousand times over on TV and film. That's right, we're talking Survivor's 'Eye Of The Tiger'. Not so much the album, but the tune.

Survivor - 1983 Caught In The Game
Perhaps the rarest album of theirs to get was this one 'Caught In The Game' released one year after 'Eye Of The Tiger' (the album). I recall seeing or hearing very little of this platter for many years, and wondered whether this album actually existed. You must realise that prior to the Internet, the printed media were only into mainstream acts, of which Survivor did not fit.

Survivor - 1984 Vital Signs
Survivor's 'Vital Signs' album set 1984 alight and provided the band with a commercial comeback after the equally stunning 'Caught In The Game' inexplicably stalled in the lower regions of the Billboard charts.

Survivor - 1986 When Seconds Count
Two years later the band are back with near on a carbon-copy of 'Vital Signs'. I say carbon-copy but 'When Seconds Count' is probably one rung or two down from that prior album, but I have to admit, despite its flaws (the overly clever and pampering lyrics for one, Sullivan's thin-sounding guitar work being the other), I still find a lot of charm with this record..

Survivor - 1988 Too Hot To Sleep
With one more contracted album with Scotti Bros and the writing more or less on the wall, the band decided to go out with a bang, rather than a whimper. 'Too Hot To Sleep' was the result.

Survivor - 2006 Reach
Nick Ludovici's review. Two of the big guns of AOR signed to Frontiers. Survivor follow in the footsteps of Toto, with their impressive new effort 'Reach', their first proper studio album since 1988!

Survivor - 2006 Reach [review #2]
Gdazegod's review. Being a huge Survivor fan, I just had to get a word in, despite a review for this album being written already.
