I happen to disagree with you, Kevin. Survivor's "Vital Signs", in my book, is one of only a handful of perfect AOR albums. Right up there with (chronologically) Boston's debut, New England's "Explorer Suite", Touch's self-titled, Journey's "Escape", John Parr's debut, Prophet's self-titled, Alias "Alias", The Storm's "Eye of the Storm" and Hugo's first one.

Out of that list, I get 1 top 10 classic - Touch, 2 "very good"s - Prophet / Boston (Boston has some killer material, some filler), 1 ballad heavy album salvaged by the singer (and they left the best track "Call Me" off the album) - Alias, 1 good to very good but can't quite see what the level of fuss is about (Journey), 2 generic rehashed 90s AOR (Storm and Hugo) and one that I can only presume was a typographical error (John Parr?). New England were the weediest wimpiest least attractive of all AOR / pomp bands - ever! I only have to think of the nauseating lyrics to P.U.N.K. or indeed even funnier D.D.T. to start hating these guys all over again...
