Hi Kevin

While we might well disagree over whether Jamison-era Survivor was any good or not, you are absolutely right that THTS was an attempt to go back to (for me) the glory days of Premonition etc rather than the (for me) rather limp wristed efforts like Vital Signs. Just a pity they didn't get back the glorious singer!


too bad they will never release all the demos they did with Dave on vox from '93 to '98. There are some real gems in there and while JJ might do them well if they ever get a cd out, it just won't be the same since he and Dave sing SO differently.

As regard to THTS though, I found an interview online from the THTS era where JP was saying that the band felt that between VS and WSC that they had become too soft and they wanted the harder edge back. Overall, I think they suceeded mostly in that goal of getting the CITG-era edge (hear more CITG than Premonition) back with some of the more WSC-esque melodics. For what it's worth though, Dave could do some pretty mean versions of the harder THTS songs--they fit his voice perfectly.

Kevin

P.S. I don't really know which era was better. Just glad they never made Vital Signs, part 2 because, that, IMO was the softest and one of the weakest cds they ever did. half of it was really on, half of it should have been left in the cutting room floor. At least WSC, as blantant a move into Journey/Foreigner territory as ever, had a few songs with the harder edge in it and some deeper lyrics than the blase pop music of VS did.
