This one is too much to handle for me...average song just with another sauce on top. And the cheese factor is rated high. No balls
Thanks god there is still Bickler delivering some good songs in honor to Survivor legacy

Couldn't agree more. As much as I like JP, the CHEESE factor has become way too much for me over the years.

I'm glad to see that others seem to be kind of disappointed in this song.

I'm of a split mind over it. There's some decent stuff musically and lyrically but I think it is ruined by some rather gawdawful decisions with regards to the makeup of the music and that ridiculous mid-song "Tien Tien" abomination.

The cheese factor of the song might've been a little lessened if I'd heard just the audio track as opposed to the video alongside it.

I like the Pride Of Lions stuff that Peterik does, but it really doesn't compare with Survivor. Peterik really needs a Frankie Sullivan type person (Minus the asshole attitude that Sullivan has) to limit the cheese factor and to make the music Rock more.

I really wish that Peterik had gotten Bickler, Droubay and Ellis together and had recorded an album while they still had the chance. It's not too late to get together with Bickler and Droubay and make a new album. Make it sound like a Caught In The Game or Eye Of The Tiger type album.

I totally agree with that wish ... Nevertheless Pride Of Lions was and is a better than to have no output in that kind and style of music!

Ok yeah theres alot of cheese....but man I just his voice.
how many bands would love to have their original singer who can sound so good
at this age? and its all wasted...such as shame. I like the message and the chorus
but that interlude part not sure what they were thinking there.

I agree with Journey/Survivor,,,,,,They are the 2 ultimate kings of cheese so you put them together with no hard rock guitarist to put some sense into this and you get a product that's not maximized.
