Survival of the Sickest

Producer (group): Island; Status: In Season

As catchy as it is defiant, Survival of the Sickest is the hard-rock triumph Saliva have been striving for since their 1997 debut. On the sexed-up title track and elsewhere, the band pays rollicking tribute to the big-hair stars of the 1980s. But front-man Josey Scott knows more than just retro party anthems – his aching redemption songs and seething revenge tirades give the album a sharp contemporary edge.
