I am still waiting to buy my first SAMSON album --> i know it's gonna be "SURVIVOR".

From: Aridrummer Date: October 16, 2002 at 16:14
Let's face it. Anything Bruce Dickinson appears on is an instant classic. A little more mainstream than Iron Maiden, but still retains that classic NWOBHM sound. Don't pass this up.

The music is in the NWOBHM tradition mixed with Deep Purple, but Bruce's voice just bring this album to life. The man can sing! Certainly this is what makes this album stick out over contemporaries like Diamond Head. AC/DC produced Tony Platt also helped make this album scream. The album starts off with one of the band's finest songs, written by Russ Ballard, but continues to stay strong throughout. It's no wonder Maiden snapped this guy up. He had the lungs of Gillan and the scream of Halford.
