Well i hoped for something special like the old days, a few of the tracks i heard before(as demos). A bit of a let down for me, but saying that could they ever top there 80s output. Put it this way how many bands are there who could keep up the standards over 3 albums in the 80s(my personal favs caught in the game, vital signs, seconds count). Caught in the game has to be one of the most uderated albums of all time!!

From: swriter Date: April 23, 2006 at 15:35
well, at first listen, I was kinda hard on this, after a week, it is not bad, well, it's been 17 years or so and no Jim involved, it is quite good for all that in mind, 80's Survivor, well maybe parts of it, some good tunes Reach, Fire, Second, Chance, Rhythm, Don't give up, only time will tell if this is a keeper for me!!!!

From: ROBERT Date: April 24, 2006 at 11:12
Algo parecido a lo q paso con los discos d TOTO, JOURNEY es lo q pasa con este nuevo. Lo 1º q exo en falta son esas teclas magicas del Mago Peterik, y lo 2º es el sonido clasico d la banda. Buenisima la Balada: The Rhythm Of Your Heart. Una q me mola muxo es TALKIN' BOUT LOVE!! En definitiva un disco Normalito para unos dioses como estos, y a Siglos Luz d sus Obras Maestras d los 80'.

From: Geoff Date: April 25, 2006 at 8:22
Okay, I actually quite like this disc. 'Reach' annoys me because of the stupid lyrics and double use of the word in the chorus, and I am not into the uplifting stuff like 'Don't give up' (great song, but not into it lyrically), but aside from that, this is good consistent stuff. Good sound for the band, love the drums. 'Talkin' 'bout love' is sensational and my clear highlight, though 'Gimmie the word' and a few others are great too. Only 'Home' sucks dog balls. Good disc.

From: swriter Date: April 29, 2006 at 13:20
hmmm, after my first comments on this, this has really grown on me 15 listens later, expectations on a new Survivor are hard, even for Survivor!!!! Given the fact Jim is not involved, I think most of the songs r strong and maybe only 1-2 fillers in my eyes, hard to follow all the good stuff they made, ok, it is 06 and 20 years past, so there r a few different sounds, but lots of familiar ones, and I really think this is strong, and may be my 06 fav of the year so far!!!

One of the discs I have really been looking forward to this year after a nearly 20 year wait. First impressions were good, but as Geoff states, the more I have spun this, the better it gets. Definately 1-2 fillers ('Home' is pretty awful), but some fine Melodic rock aswell with 'One More Chance' & the excellent 'Talkin' Bout Love' being my picks. Jimi Jamison still sounds great, although the Franke Sullivan sung tracks aren't exactly the best vocals I have ever,although songwise excellent.

The whole production is pretty good throughout aswell, although I would have liked a little more 'Balls' in the drum dept. as they are a little thin in places, but that is only a minor complaint in what is overall a very good album indeed. On a side note Re. Jim Peterik. If his latest very disappointing solo album 'Above The Storm' is the best material he can come up with, then the boys certainly don't miss him on this one, as this is in a different league altogether.

From: vandervelde Date: May 4, 2006 at 4:11
Dissapointing i'm afraid....songs are good or very good (in majority this is 80s Dave Bickler demos), but the execution is what dissapoints me...more balls in production, more energy in the vocals, more keys(trademark of old Survivor) and this would be killer disc...sound of this disc remind me Ambition album...still ballad The Rhythm Of My heart is my favourite here with Neverthless my second pick...good but could be soooo much better...

From: hevi Date: May 7, 2006 at 5:52
this sounds like survivor/b-sides & rarities,if they had made one.some songs are well produced and some are not.maybe they have lost their book "how to make a good/brilliant song" or maybe there´s just jim peterik missing.dissapointment afterall.7/10.

From: TomStavely Date: May 12, 2006 at 20:43
good Fire makes Steel and talkin Bout Love are great songs but the rest is ver 50/50 some good parts but on the whole the sickly ballads let it down they should have moved more heavy like track 2. Why is this on the top 25 who is making the rating system pointless Get a life. on the whole this album is well worth buying if your a Survivor fan but otherwise spend your money elsewhere... Unless youve got loads in which case buy this just for Track2 overall 6/10

From: JF Date: May 16, 2006 at 19:32
Nada del otro mundo pero no diria que es un mal disco. Tiene sus canciones. Eso si Jimi tendria que haber cantado en todas. Gimmie The Word,Talkin' 'Bout Love,Reach y The Rhythm Of Your Heart las que mas me gustan. Prefiero este regreso al de Journey.

From: CHESSBOARDER Date: May 20, 2006 at 5:11
...dissapoints a bit, too average i find... 6/10

From: Vincenzo Date: May 30, 2006 at 7:05
This album is a great Survivor return. It's incredible that album like last House of Lords (wrong production) take on this site very hight rate and this album, genuine AOR masterpiece, is so underestimate. Vincenzo. www.HardnHeavy.it 8/10

From: GhostfaceSlasher Date: June 23, 2006 at 1:11
I am fed up of buying these new releases from the bands I grew up with just to hear them sell out...Not this one tho`.... Granted I wasnt blown away with a couple of the songs, but for the most part I just relaxed and loved it...ONE MORE CHANCE you can just relax out to and then FIRE MAKES STEEL is along with the best..AWESOME...A very happy SURVIVOR fan....

From: juan carlos Date: September 21, 2006 at 20:41
Canciones simples pero efectivas. Jimi Jamison está cantando de forma espléndida como siempre.. Coros y solos buenos. La producción si que es muy decente como para la talla de este grupo, como que está muy plana y con un sonido de bateria no muy bien lograda. Un disco muy parejo en canciones, me gustan todas, no hay rellenos aunque no maravillado tampoco con los temas. Sullivan canta en "Nevertheless" alo Reo Speedwagon y en "Talkin''Bout Love" gran solo y buenos coros. 8.5/10

From: swriter Date: November 24, 2006 at 21:31
ok, how did this get 500 votes and end up in the top 25???? hmmmm with that said, I think this is a great one and a real shame the band could not hold it together long enough to do another album with Jim.

From: z4roxx Date: December 24, 2006 at 12:25
I hope the band will do better with the next release now that Robin McAuley is the new singer.This cd is painful and 100% generic and without any personality.Don twaste your time to hear it.

From: Luis Julio Date: April 2, 2007 at 17:28
Incredible return.A masterpiece. Better than J.Peterik & Pride of Lions.

From: z4roxx Date: April 3, 2007 at 13:17
Ahaha incredible s**t!!!A masterpiece among the worst comebacks ahahah!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 24, 2009 at 21:54
This album has different opinions from the readers of HH..some said is good some said bad but in my personal point of view this album has some hints of the old Survivor school ("Reach",the track,is a good example)that somehow makes this record kind of appealing.Talking about the rest of the songs we find excellent ones such as "Fire Makes Steel","The Rhythm Of Your Heart"(nice and smooth),"Home"(beautiful song with a cool rhythm)and two powerful songs "Gimmie The Word" & "Talkin'bout Love"(this one rocks!!!).So if you want 2 know how Survivor is sounding nowadays grab it!.85/100

From: pibe Date: January 16, 2011 at 5:52
muy buen retorno de la mejor banda aor del mundo con grandes temas.fire makes steal es el mejor corte

From: tomdwa Date: March 31, 2020 at 13:05
Very weak effort, almost unworthy of the name Survivor. The songwriting quality just isn't there, sounds like b-sides that were left on a shelf somewhere. Only a couple of exceptions escape the mediocrity: Gimmie the word and Talkin 'bout love.
