Excellent Album. Great follow up to 'Eden'. I've been a Europe fan for 25 years and have all the Albums. I think this one is their most accomplished piece of work so far. 'Secret Society' and 'Last look at Eden' have lots of great tracks, but I think on 'Bag of Bones' there are more songs that get stuck in your head than on any other Europe Album. Favourite tracks are 'Not Supposed to Sing the Blues', 'Demon Head', 'Doghouse', My Woman My Friend', 'Drink and a Smile' and the wonderful 'Bring it all Home' which rivals any great Rock ballad I've heard for a long time. I hope this will be the Album that puts the band back on the big stage. Having read many recent reviews, the Band are finally getting the praise and recognition as one of the best Hard Rock Bands around at the moment, but most people think they only ever wrote "ONE SONG" which is an injustice to such a talented, hard working group of guys. It's very difficult for the Bands' profile to be raised in the UK when promotion of the new Album is so poor. On the Albums' release day my local HMV stores had only 2 copies each hidden away out of sight, failing to qualify for the special areas reserved for new Releases. Europe could produce the greatest Rock Album of all time and most people wouldn't know. I HIGHLY recommend this Album to any Europe fan or anybody who loves Classic Rock.
