Album Review

1982 was an interesting year for mainstream rock. Listeners were still a few years away from the chart-topping pop-metal bands, and a few years removed from the oft-indulgent '70s rock era. As a result, people were left with an era that was mostly populated by bands that wore headbands and largely modeled their sound after Foreigner. In other words — bands that attempted to appeal to both the pop and rock audiences, by combining arena-worthy choruses and tough guitar riffs, topped off with a healthy scoop of melody. A perfect example would be Survivor, and their third release overall, Eye of the Tiger. With the group's first two releases barely causing a ripple on the charts, it was Tiger that catapulted the band to the top, thanks to the chart-topping title track, which was used as the theme song to the hit movie Rocky III the same year. Despite this, the Eye of the Tiger album is often overlooked, even though it almost topped the charts as well (peaking at number two). The reason for this was that while the group managed to appeal to both aforementioned audiences — as evidenced by the Zeppelin-esque "Hesitation Dance" and the power ballad "I'm Not That Man Anymore" — nothing here really scales the same height as the title track. But as a memento of mainstream rock circa the early '80s, Eye of the Tiger is a faithful snapshot.

Customer Reviews

Better than the vinyl

I have this album on vinyl which I bought from a charity shop very cheaply. I was impressed that a band like this could get hidden behind one song. That song is Eye of the Tiger. If you like AC/DC, Whitesnake and all those other types of over 80s groups, get this album. Don't just get EOTT, try out the solo genius of I'm not that man anymore or the jumpyness of Feels like love. Go buy it, I will when I have enough credit!

Eye Of the Tiger

This album is fantastic. It's from that hinetrland where mainstream rock hadn't found the formula that would kill it. There's no filler, no wildly out of place shreddy solos, just solid song writing and great hooks. The perfomances are great, and all for the greater good of the song, rather than marking time until the guitarist gets to wail. It's a shame Survivor became associated with a single hit as they wrote much stronger songs than their contemporaries. This is an overlooked classic.

Good

Exellent dont understand why this decent music cant be free :)

Biography

Formed: 1978 in Chicago, IL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Survivor's brand of melodic, hard AOR netted the group several hits through the '80s, including two smash themes from Rocky films, but never quite matched the success or consistency of contemporaries like Foreigner. Survivor was founded in 1978 by guitarist/keyboardist Jim Peterik, formerly the lead singer of the Ides of March, and guitarist Frankie Sullivan; the two recruited lead singer Dave Bickler and recorded a self-titled debut album as a trio with studio musicians Dennis Johnson on bass and...
