AllMusic Review by

Moving right along in BMG Special Product's quirkily titled Extended Versions series, Survivor take a turn at issuing forth live, edited versions of some of their greatest moments. However, this does not work well as an introduction to the group, regardless of the tempting budget-line pricing. The performances, while earnest, seem lackluster when compared to the original recordings. Casual fans of the group would be better served by checking out a greatest-hits compilation featuring original recordings in a similar price range. This is a recording that would only whet the appetite of die-hard fans.
