One of Survivor's best songs. I always liked the Bickler version. Love his phrasing and vocals on the bridge especially. JJ pulled it off in the studio, but he was straining mightily to hit those high notes. I think that's a lot of the reason why a lot of the Bickler material never got played live--just out of JJ's wheelhouse.

far more laid back than I would have expected, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. He never does the same album twice, for better or worse. Needs more listens to process it and figure out where it stacks up.

Perhaps better than some of the FW material. Never could get past the singer though. Really, really heavy accent. Tommy Heart, he is not.

I'd be very tempted to say some of the rerecordings on Jimmy Barnes' 30/30 Hindsight better the originals.

Good stuff. Hadn't seen that before. John Farnham is an incredible singer for sure. That said, I always thought LRB sounded better with Shorrock. Farnham's voice is so strong and identifiable that it becomes the dominant sound in the harmonies. Always thought that with the less identifiable voice of Shorrock that the harmonies sounded better. Both good. Just different.

He does well on the material up to Escape. It's just the post-Escape material where the thinness of his voice becomes really evident. Add another fan of the S/T Hugo album. It's really good, classy stuff.

I always kinda thought of it as a successor to the Peterik Don't Fight the Feeling album. There's almost another album in the same vein with the Haymarket live shows of stuff that never made an album. I think there's an interview with Peterik that said Survivor as we know it began with Premonition, and there's a bit of truth in that.
