My copy is arriving today.  Iam so used to amazon prime that when I don't have it, it sucks!!!  I pre ordered 2 months ago!

I get impatient/anxious waiting sometimes too. I guess we've gotten spoiled with fast shipping.  While I like that convenience, I miss the days of going to a local record store on release days.  You got it when you wanted it, no busted cd cases, damaged vinyl/covers nor receiving the wrong item.

Absolutely agree

Just to follow on from my original post, after listening to this a few times. I'm wild about 'Through,' 'Fall Like An Angel' and 'Remember Me.' Three of the best songs of the year so far. The rest is very good too, except for 'Mother' which is a definite skip and 'Let me out,' which is a pretty bland closing ballad. But for the most part, pretty great album.

I know the original was a big hit, but this cover version doesn't do much for me and it is one of three tracks that I skip when listening to the album

Nice enough cover of what is actually a pretty catchy tune... but I don't like the female vocals. :(

    • Cool tune - massive s/t album type vibe to it. 
    • Could be. I think they have better distribution in Europe.
    • Trace - Line Of Fire Passion Play - Time Stands Still Mike + The Mechanics - The Singles 1985 - 2014 (2 CD) Frameshift - An Absence Of Empathy Lion´s Share - Dark Hours + 1 Platens - Between Two Horizons No Sweat - Tear Down The Walls (CD-single) Texas - Tired Of Being Alone Acoustic EP
    • Then later by AOR Heaven also I think? 
    • 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.
