4.0 out of 5 stars ...Buy it, enjoy it, rock it!..., 14 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Last Look At Eden (digi pack) (Audio CD)
I must admit that I wasn't much of a Europe fan first time out, but having seen the reunited band live, I was persuaded that things were more to my liking this time around.

This is the third album since they got back together, following on from "Start from The Dark" and "Secret Society", and sees them continuing on the heavier, darker, rockier road that their reunion has seen them take. And, in the main, this is an excellent release.

The title track is an outstanding opener, with the guitars of John Norum and the keyboards of Mic Michaeli vying with each other in a who is heaviest competition. Joey Tempests voice is deeper and richer than it was in their high flying eighties, but the music needs the extra depth that he brings. John Norum even gets a chance to get his blues on, on tunes like 'Catch That Plane', something that they wouldn't have been capable of pulling off, twenty years ago.

There are a couple of big ballads thrown into the mix. After all, they'll still want to keep the ladies sweet! The best of them is 'New Love In Town', a song that is followed by the contrasting, bludgeoning 'The Beast', which is as close to heavy metal as Europe are ever likely to get.

Rockin', bluesy, funky and melodic rock albums don't get much better than this one. Buy it, enjoy it, rock it!
