As far as Survivor goes, THTS is by far their best album with Jamison. His earlier albums with them sound way too dated now. It also didn't help matters hearing "The Search Is Over" a zillion times on those softy radio stations.

figures that their, IMO, worst ballad (not bad, just well below the standards of the others which are pretty much classics) would be the big hit for them. Guess the radio promoters didn't want to release the JJ-butchered vocal version of "Ever Since the World Began" to radio stations. Hard to believe how some of the other ballads were not hits though--or for that matter, hardly ANYTHING of the first few albums. Premonition was so hit-filled it wasn't even funny.

As far as albums go, I actually like WSC a lot and there are a lot of great moments there, but THTS would probably be my favorite album from Survivor ever (either Dave or JJ) if they cut out a few songs (ie Rhythm of the City) and wrote a few others to replace them. As it stands though, it's 2nd fav with JJ with a Vital Signs falling somewhere near the bottom of the stack below most of the Dave cds.
