Albenrezension

One of the most glorious launches in history, the title track for the thrice platinum The Final Countdown, is so bombastically brilliant, such glorious garbage, that this nuclear hair assault could only spew from the vacuous '80s. But full-tilt follow-up "Rock the Night" rules also: "You know it ain't easy/Running out of thrills." Sure, "Carrie" comes off a consummate butane ballad, but her sales figures account for this reissue. Meanwhile, the rest of the disc packs so much power that Swedish superheroes Europe get away with all the processed pretension. In fact, the lofty ambition of "Danger on the Track," "Ninja," and "Cherokee" (each as tasty as its title) combines with heated drive and hot delivery to meld The Final Countdown into a unique portrait of propulsive prog and a worthy addition to any hard rock collection. This is the story; this is the legend told by Teutonic guitars and predictable keyboards ringing pure and hurtling through each and every convention perfectly. Honestly, the tacked-on carbon-copy live cuts won't change your life (all '80s reissues should have a video) and this is such a brilliant feat without 'em. The quintet's big-boy Epic inaugural, The Final Countdown deftly combines the Valhalla victory of Europe's heroic debut with the American poodle pomposity that devoured the band. You could live without The Final Countdown, but why? Now we wait for the first to be remastered.

After changing their name to Europe and releasing two albums in Sweden (Europe and...
