Europe isn't the most famous of bands, but they are certainly a very good rock band. Most people will have heard of them through their most famous song, 'Final Countdown' and will go out and buy one of their CD's after listening to it, because it is so good. I'd recommend this CD for those people, because this is the best Europe CD available for under 10 and does feature most of their best songs.
Tracks 1-3 and 5 are Hard Rock songs, and they are all of a high standard, I espeicially like 'Scream of Anger' which features a great guitar riff.
This CD features 4 songs from their most succesful album, 'Final Countdown' (Tracks 7,9-11) and also features a rare B-Side from it, all of these songs are excellent.
The rest of the album has a few bad songs unfortunately especially, 'Yesterday's News.'
However 'Prisoners from Paradise' is a nice ballad, and keeps the album going nicely.
The very last song, is a remix of 'Final Countdown' and if you like dance music then you might appreciate it more than I did.
Overall, 1982-2000 is a great collection of Europe's songs, and if you're only wanting to spend between 5-10 on a Europe CD then this is the collection to buy.

It is just a sad thing that such a Gloriuos Band of the 80's cease to exist. "Europe" is one of the best rock groups of the 80's and this compilation is the big proog on that. Tracks such as "The Final Count Down" and "Superstitious" prove that Rock can be mixed with Pop for a larger Audience. As for the Super Ballad "Carrie" it is one of these ballads that live on although the bnd is not their. Their atempt to Remix "The Final Countdown" for the year 2000 did suceed and it was a nice try to enhanace their music into the new millenium. This best of collection is a must for every Musc Lover

'1982-2000' is an updated version of Europe's first official greatest hits album released in 1992, containing only one new track: 'The Final Countdown 2000' which was a top 40 hit in the UK around that time (2000). It's a remix of the band's biggest hit, If you like dance music, you'll probably enjoy it more than me.

I bought this album years ago, I was only familiar with their biggest hit 'The Final Countdown' and rather liked it (I was still very young and just becoming a fan of rock music). I soon began to appreciate their other hits and album highlights featured on this CD.

In chronological order, this compilation features 18 tracks, spanning their career at the time, in which they had a released five studio albums. They started off as a much heavier rock band than they began during her commercial peak. The first two tracks (taken from their 1983 duet album) are some of the strongest: ''In The Future To Come'' and ''Seven Doors Hotel''. Four tracks from their second album ''Wings Of Tomorrow'' are also included, my favourite being the ballad ''Dreamer''. Most people will be familiar with the next four songs: ''Countdown'', ''Rock The Night'', ''Carrie'' and ''Cherokee'', all big hits in 1986.

After the huge success of 'The Final Countdown' album and the four singles, Europe released an even better album two years later with the top 20 hit 'Out Of This World', in which they had further success with the singles ''Superstitious'' and ''Ready Or Not''.

In 1991, they released their best album (in my opinion), ''Prisoners In Paradise'', containing the amazing title track and ''I'll Cry For You'' (the acoustic version is presented here).

The Final Countdown has rocked the airwaves from the mid 1980s onwards, including much play around the start of the year 2000.
Great song with keyboards and electric guitar to the fore, otherwise apart from Open Your heart and Carrie there's not too much which stands out from the Soft Rock crowd, especially The Final Countdown 2000 is nowhere near as good as the original.

Europe seem to be the forgotten rock band of the eighties and bar the 'Final Countdown' remix, this is exactly the same record as '1982-1992' released in 1993.
It is a collection of most of the best tracks and is a very good value introduction.
It includes two or three early hits which are pretty awful, but the others are superb, clean, hard rock- a cut above much of eighties rock.
A remix of 'The Final Countdown' could have been an amazing new hit, but is in fact a lazy, unimaginative and virtually unrecognisable waste of time.
Regardless, this CD is very much worth buying.
