DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

SURVIVOR (ABO#411)

SURVIVOR
TREE OF LIFE

What is commercial music? Is it still art when it's meant to be sold on huge scales? That question has been a debate among art (and music) lovers since...Forever!
Shame is, some bands with real tallent, such as Survivor, have been mocked because of their radio-friendly vision of (hard) rock. Still, the riffs are good, the melodies hook you on. Surely, bad music (art) cannot do this. Or can it?...
Anyway, here's an 18 tracks selection of a band primarly know for his participation in two "Rocky" pictures with "Eye of the Tiger" and "Burning Heart". Those were good songs and have been included here along with songs from each of their 8 studio albums.
Be curious, give Survivor a try. You might end up surprised by how good this music is.

too hot to sleep was a real eye opener for me, I loved the title track.... guess I'll just have to explore this and report back from the outer branches :)

Too Hot to Sleep is a mighty fine album and probably the heaviest thing Survivor ever released.
I've got to admit I have a soft spot for their early material (first two albums) which is not as radio-friendly as the stuff they released after.
Anyway, there quite a handfull of great tunes to be found on (almost) every Survivor album.

Is anyone else having difficulty extracting track 16 with the usual password? All the rest work...

All I really knew of Survivor was "Eye of the Tiger" so getting this comp expanded my knowledge and interest in the band. Thank you very much, great job.
