Mmmmmmmmmm yes it is, but you know something, Europe actually didnt like that album very much at all, too commercialized etc etc, there new album "Start from the Dark" is amazing, have you heard it??? Its much more heavier, and guitar orientated, not like the 80-90's Europe at all, its really good, there working on another album right now, followed by another tour.

I heard it I believe. They should have took that approach if you ask me. The dark, and heavy sound doesn't fit them. The sound on PIP is just right for them. Either that or the sound on John Norum's first album. That one is GUITAR OVERDRIVE!!! 8-)

I really like Europe too, some people used to say they were the European Bon Jovi..I don't know if this is a proven fact but I don't like them for that. They really deserve their success and I do think they bring something interesting at that time, the hairband "era".
I have to agree with LeoLeoLeo about the Prisoners in Paradise LP, a great record!

But when Europe came back, a friend of mine told me about their "Start from the Dark" and gave me the opportunity to listen to this album and I was kinda shocked yep.....I don't know if shocked is the right word to describe my reaction, but I was quite disturbed by the whole guitar stuff, the mixing, etc.
It sounded to me really different, and as I love the sound from the 80ies you know I made the decision not to buy the album.

Then at the end of 2005 they released their "Live from the Dark" DVD, when I saw that stuff in my recordstore I was pretty happy so I bought it and I didn't regret it 'cause it gave me another view of the new songs....they're pretty catchy & powerful performed live & it made me want to discover the "Start from the Dark" again...but this time my opinion will be more optimistic I guess ;)

Although i loved Europe's music in the 80-90's, i think a change is as good as any, and i really like there new sound, YES its different, much more guitar orientated, but this is one of the reasons that John Norum left, because he didnt like the way Europe's music was being produced, too commercialised, etc etc, he wanted the guitar feel to the songs, and they were probably based around the keyboard at the time....

Alot of people associate Europe with The Final Countdown, and although this was a HUGE song for them, i think they kinda wanted to move away from that sound.

Im really looking forward to hearing the album that they are working on right now, it should be released later on in the year, followed by a Tour i hope lol.

So for anyone who is unsure i say check it out, you might be pleasantly suprised :lol:

I agree with you about changing...this truly brings something new & some fresh stuff to someone's art so I don't mind about that, really. The fact is, contrary to some artists who always kept on renewing themselves, these changes were pretty unsignificant to me during Europe's early period...and then a break & a new album with something totally different :o
You must be true about the keyboards oriented stuff, it's maybe because I was so surprised by "Start from the Dark" cuz I didn't expect such a heavy record. Surprised but not disappointed, though...so yep everybody should check this out ;)

But now I re-discovered this album, I think it fits the "new" Europe perfectly...their last tour must have been amazing & I enjoyed the "Hero" video. This one talks about some great feelings...
Well I'm really looking forward to knowing more about the forthcoming album too :lol:

if someone ask me "which Europe cd would you bring with you on an island", I'd say Out of this world.. love the sound and the lyrics of it..
but if I could, I'd bring em all.. Start from the dark is kinda shocking at a first listening, especially if you've fixed in your head that 80s' sound.. but after it goes and goes in repeat for a few times, you start to get used to this new flavour.. not bad, even if not 80ish..

and still haven't decide if I prefer Norum or Marcello.. maybe the latter..

Replied by JamesLip on topic Bad economic news is time for haunt Biden
U. S. gross domestic product shrank 1. 4% in the first quarter at the same time inflation carrying on with to soar. For aged Americans, that combination invokes memories of 1970s stagflation, a nightmarish combination of double-digit inflation, double-digit interest rates, leaping gasoline prices and frequently high unemployment. The entire economical mess got dumped after President Jimmy Carter’s seats after the 1976 election, although it was neither his wrong doing nor the fault of his / her predecessors, Gerald Ford together with Richard Nixon.

Sometimes, international economic forces converge much like weather systems to create a ideal storm, and woe for the president who gets captured in it. The timing from the current storm couldn’t always be worse for President Paul Biden as he tries to minimize the damage Democrats usually are bracing for in this year’s midterm elections. Republicans to expect to rub Biden’s nasal in bad economic data, even so voters would be wise to evaluation up on the facts rather than count on political spin.


Biden learned an economy still in pandemic shutdown mode. Makers abroad, like here, possessed sent workers home and curtailed production to halt often the spread of the coronavirus. Customer spending plummeted. Manufacturers marketed off inventories to meet no matter what demand there was. Fuel fees had plummeted because operators also were staying household.

Suddenly, vaccines allowed People in america to return to work, the freeways and the stores just as Joe biden was settling into the Gentle House. A surge in demand created for everything crashed against the actual production and cargo-transportation logjam. Americans returned to their motor vehicles just as domestic and mysterious oil producers opted in order to restrict output. Pump selling prices skyrocketed.

Thus, inflation.

The decline in gross community product - in razor-sharp contrast to the 6. 9% increase in the first quarter relating to 2021 - reflects the decline in car earnings because carmakers still are unable to get the raw materials and microchips they need. Manufacturers, having decreased their inventories, now are usually struggling to meet consumer wish. So , their sales are usually dropping.

Thus, stagnation.

Presidents Nixon, Ford and Billings grappled for years with the combination of a global economic contraction, different punishing Middle East polymer-bonded embargoes, tens of thousands of troops revisiting from Vietnam and inadequate jobs to employ them. Joe biden, just like Carter and Nixon, also faced significant community blowback from military debacles abroad: Nixon’s messy Vietnam pullout, Carter’s failed bet to rescue American hostages in Iran and Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal.

There are no easy way for presidents to spin bad economical news other than to make very clear that there is a bright side - such as Biden’s reminder Thurs that unemployment rates have not been this low since 70 - and to remind anyone that presidents in free-market economies have minimal forces to halt inflation or travel economic growth. But the actual one-term presidency and midterm pain awaits any supervisor who tries to shrug off of these factors or disregard the strains faced by North american consumers (and voters).
