Can somebody make a comment about this album!

Where it all began for this legendary AOR outfit. Sounds like early Foreigner/Shooting Star/38 Special midwest AOR. The intro to "Youngblood" sounds like a blueprint for "Eye of the Tiger". "Somewhere in America" is absolutely first-rate & was the well-deserved single choice. If dated production doesn't bother you, then pick up this enjoyable CD. I like it even better than their followup "Premonition". Thankfully, both were reissued but seek out the Japanese pressing of "s/t" with "Rebel Girl".

Aint heard it yet, but I will be picking up a copy soon!

From: scott Date: October 22, 2002 at 23:22
best band of all time. yes it sounds like early foriegner.love every song they have ever done and "rebel girl" is awesome. a much different sound than there later classic sound

From: MelodicRocker Date: November 19, 2002 at 17:33
Hi AOR freaks !! Anybody interested to sell his Japanese version of the s/t Survivor album ? Or to do an exchange-trade ? I can offer the original release in great condition and of course a lot more AOR gems. If that's the case please leave a message here. Thx

From: Big Papa K Date: August 19, 2004 at 14:52
This was my last Survivor album to hear, and it certainly is a lot different that the rest. This one reminds me more of a power pop/straight ahead rock band than the aor sound we would know to come and love. "Somewhere In America" is a standout and the rest is pretty consisten through out. 7/10

From: dropix Date: August 30, 2004 at 14:24
very good album for all who likes survivor - there is one of the best songs of this group - NOTHIN CAN SHAKE ME - GREAT ALBUM - GREAT BAND - I REALLY RECOMMEND 10/10 dropix.republika.pl

From: Wotty Date: August 30, 2004 at 14:34

Hora de comentar a una leyenda, a un icono en todo lo que es el origen del Aor, pues es mi banda favorita SURVIVOR!!! y empezando con tremendo albun en ese entonces creo que ah sido el favorito de muchos jovenes Aor. escuchando el albun una y otra vez no cave duda que Survivor es una Joya Absoluta del Aor, mis temas Favoritos "YoungBlood" y Whote Town's Talkin'" bellos temas.

From: darobinson Date: May 12, 2008 at 18:10
The best Survivor album, period. I like all of their stuff but this album has it all. Great vocals, Franke playing killer riffs and great back up vox. I like the Bickler fronted tunes better than Jamison because the music has alot more punch. AOR at it's best.

From: Kim HP Date: December 17, 2008 at 12:37
Not their best IMO, but certainly a good album. "Somewhere In America" and "Whole Town's Talkin" are outstanding and shows a good indication of the more straight AOR direction they would take on the next release. But this is a good, consistent release and I even rate it higher than the "Eye Of The Tiger" album. Highly recommended.

From: titothetitan Date: January 23, 2020 at 14:06
Decent album, but not much my taste [Vital Signs]. Overall it's a nice start.

From: tomdwa Date: March 28, 2020 at 10:17
Not a bad debut at all, and the start of a success story. Whole town's talking and Nothing can shake me (from your love) are my personal favorites here, songs that show promise for a bright future.
