This latest offering from Europe is great and slightly better than their last, so many good tracks to name. John Norum expresses the guitar and is hot?...So many good tracks to name and well worthy of a buy....

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 25 November 2007
I was glad to find out that after such a strong comeback album with 'Start From The Dark', Europe were to release another one with 'Secret Society'.

Whilst I do prefer the previous, this is nevertheless another good release. The guys' new music is pointing in the right direction, and it is interesting to see Europe's music evolve, this is about as far away from the sound of 'The Final Countdown' as possible. I don't like the annoying but unfortunately hard to forget title track, but the radio friendly single 'Always The Pretenders' soon became a favourite of mine, and 'Devil Sings The Blues' provides an amazing climax to the album. Other great songs include 'A Mother's Son', with heartfelt lyrics, 'Let The Children Play', which could have become something of anthem had a single been released and radio stations played it, and the melodic 'Forever Traveling', with Joey Tempest's vocals as strong as ever.

If you are one of those people who might have have forgotten that Europe started out as a hard rock band, and ridicule their old image and hits during their commercial peak, this will surely come as a surprise.

Digging it big time! Listening to it now as I write this. Good production, classy vocals and guitar licks a plenty. This really is a solid effort. You can imagine yourself zooming through the countryside and back roads on a Friday night, hands thumping on the steering wheel. Looser and more creative than their last album (which was a 3.7/5 effort in my opinion), I would have to call this as their best post-reunion album. Okay, all four are in the 'very good' category. As I see it: 1. Secret Society, 2. Last Look at Eden, and equal pegging for Start from the Dark & Bag of Bones. Those in the know...know.

If there is one critisism of their last outing "Start From The Dark", it's that the album was very samey. This latest release, in my opinion, is their best to date. Each song has something to offer, and it grows with every listen. Unfortunately, because most of the public associate Europe with cheesy 80's pop rock, most people will never get to here this great CD which really is a shame, because if you listened to The final countdown and then Secret Society you'd find it hard to believe this is the same band. If you've never thought about buying a Europe album in your life, then now is the time to think again.

From the cover to title track this album suggests that Europe has experimented in a big way.

Start from the Dark showed their rough edge side. Secret Society changes that mood slightly. The message is still the same but the sound has change somewhat. The title track is completely different from anything out there and reminds me of Superstitious when it was released.

Some tracks are fantastic! Let the Children Play, Brave and Beautiful Soul and the best song on this album Forever Traveling are the pillars that support this album. I felt somewhat let down by the first single Always the Pretenders as this was probably the worst song on the CD. The getaway Plan also fails to impress but once you reach track 4 (Wish I could believe) things get a lot better. Although this is not their best album it certainly has enough for rock lovers to enjoy!

I bought this album on a whim having enjoyed 'Final Countdown' and 'Rock the Night'and others (not Carrie) wanting to find out what the band were up to in 2006. I listened to this album and of course certain tracks grab you almost instantly like 'Always the Pretenders'.'The Getaway Plan' and 'Love is not the Enemy' are just great to play whilst driving or working. I read the other reviews regarding 'Let the Children Play'and having given this some thought, I think that the children's choir fits in okay, it's a bit Pink Floydish but it is only a brief part of the song and fits in just fine. We are now in 2008 and I have almost worn the CD out,it has really grown on me. I have now worked backwards through 'Start from the Dark' (another excellent album) and have discovered tracks such as 'Scream of Anger', 'In the Future to Come', 'Yesterday's News' etc which I had never heard before but now really love.
I went to see Europe live at Nalen in Stockholm in January (excellent live) and eagerly await their next album.

Their previous album start from the dark amazed me, it had really heavy tunes and their trademark melodies that seem to be rare these days. Suprisingly this album is better! It doesn't happen very often to buy an album that you can listen to from the begining by the time it ends. All the songs here have strong melodies, John Norum's guitar is super and the band is better than ever. Some people might ignore them, thinking they're pase (although it's a modern record), but you know usually ''trendy'' people are very narrow minded.. The rest of us can enjoy a great record written by one of the best hard rock bands ever. Buy it!
