First love, first child, first visit to Leeds, they all pale in comparison to the first time you hear this album. Of course eveyone knows it for the rightly famous title track but the real standout is "Ninja". No-one has ever captured the tragic plight of those noble masked killing machines like these geniuseses (genioids?). "Ninja survive, in dreams I walk by your side. Ninja survive, with you there's no need to hide". Man, I'm almost weeping from every orifice as I write those glorious words.
They may have been called "Europe" but they really should have called themselves, like, "The Whole Universe And Galaxy And Everything" cause they're that good.
