Cool. Love their debut. Can't remember / don't know 'Powerdrive.' But I am looking forward to hear what they come up with.

The debut was good, 'Powerdrive' even better, so looking forward to this after a break of nearly 15 years

The samples sound ok, similar style to the band's earlier material, but my initial thought is that the songs aren't as strong as those prior releases

Ditto. Better than I expected but I'm still not sure.

Not bad but it doesn't change any of the above comments for me,not sure of the strength of the material...and it still sounds quite flat production wise...where is the umph?

I'll probably purchase at some point mainly based on the bands past...I loved the debut

I gave it a listen on Spotify and I agree with your thoughts.  No comparison to their first two releases in terms of the song quality.

Thank goodness for these later posts. The album is dreadful and beyond. Fucking horrible. What is it? A collection of demos from the 70's when they were schoolboys practicing in a garage? Or is this a legit attempt at a new album? Genuine question - what is this collection of shit? 

Nothing at all in common with the first two - just a weak, pissy sound... but despite the sound quality, the songs are so bad and horribly written. I don't understand why they are so awful. What's the reason behind this shit?

    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label. 
    • Eye of the Tiger cover  
    • I don't think Frontiers is involved with this one
    • True they have been known for long delays between releases.  But over a similar 15 year span from '84 -'99 they put out 4 albums vs. 2.  And after Pyromania & Hysteria a delay was understandable following up hugely successful records (with long tours), Rick Allen lost his arm and had to relearn how to play, they scrapped recordings and started over with a different producer, and of course Steve's struggles with depression and alcohol eventually leading to his death while working on Adrenalize
