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.

Rock'n'Roll at it's finest

Despite being a great song, "Eye of the Tiger" and its associated Rocky III success is the worst thing that could have happened to this great band. If you want to hear some great rock'n'roll at its finest, you need to purchase Survivor's 1st four CD's "Survivor", "Premonition", "Eye of the Tiger" and "Caught in the Game". These 4 albums are all with their original lead singer, Dave Bickler. Listen to songs like "Nothing Can Shake Me", "Poor Man's Son", "Ever Since The World Began", "I'm Not That Man Anymore" & "Heart's a Lonely Hunter" and I challenge you to find a vocalist with a more powerhouse voice that has the range to do it ALL. The man is amazing and the songs are just what rock'n'roll is all about. The latter CD's with Jimi Jamison on the vocals are excellent as well, but, they lost a bit of their toughness when Bickler left the band. Sadly, this was one of the most under-appreciated bands of the early 80's. Survivor was a true street-tough Rock band. At a time when bands like Journey, Styx, Foreigner & REO Speedwagon got all the hype, this band was creating way better tunes than them all. And I'm not sure what the last reviewer was ranting about. The Title song IS on the album!

Eye of the Tiger: Great Song

Eye of the Tiger is such a great song, that I had to go learn it on guitar. It's acually quite easy. Most of the stuff that you might THINK is guitar is acually a kewboard playing it. Haha, if anyone can play guitar, its mostly just the F note of the D string. I'd explain the rest, but I have a life so I only got time to write this hahahaha.

Biography

Survivor's brand of melodic, hard, album-oriented rock netted the group several hits during the 1980s, 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) with guitarist Frankie Sullivan; the two recruited lead singer Dave Bickler and recorded a self-titled debut album as a trio with...
