Survivor – Premonition [1981]

“Premonition” is the second album by American melodic rock/AOR band “Survivor” originally released in 1980, reissued in 2010 by “Rock Candy Records”. “Premonition”, was an additional step towards the identifiable “Survivor” sound, bringing to front more of their melodic essence while retaining a good deal of the hard rock style of their debut. “Premonition” was also the first album to feature the established rythm section of bassist Stephan Ellis and drummer Marc Droubay along side founders guitarist Frankie Sullivan, keyboardist Jim Peterik and singer David Bickler.

The album as expected opens on such rockers as “Chevy Nights”, Summer Nights” and “Poor Man’s Son” followed by such pomp AOR tunes as “Runway Lights” the epic “Light of a thousand smiles” and “Love is on my side”. There is also the power-ballad “Hearts a lonely hunter” built on an unconventional but absolutely stimulating guitar/keyboard melody, which serves as an early verification that “Survivor” belong to an artistic league of their own.

While most would consider “Vital Signs”, “When Seconds Count” and “Eye of the Tiger” as the ultimate “Survivor” albums, “Premonition” has more than enough musical depth and substance to challenge their most popular works. If you are a fan of pomp-adult oriented rock you can not go wrong with “Remonition”.
