iTunes Review

Wings of Tomorrow was the last independent album for Europe before the band signed to a major label and “The Final Countdown” turned them into international stars. In songs like “Stormwind” and “Wings of Tomorrow,” you can already feel the young band breaking through to bigger and bolder things. In that way, this is an ideal transitional album. Europe hadn't yet shed their speed metal influences, yet they were already discovering the power pop that would make them stars. Thus, the incendiary “Scream of Anger” sits next to the sugary “Open Your Heart,” and each side of the band’s personality enhances the other. Though they'd further hone their ability to craft pop tunes, they'd never be more aggressive than they were here. Therefore, the greatest attraction of Wings of Tomorrow is hearing proof of how hard Europe rocked before they got famous. Anyone who has the band pegged as a bunch of dolled-up softies needs to hear “Dance the Night Away,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and “Aphasia.”

That is what I am talkin' about!!!

Thank you I-Tunes for getting this cd on board!!! This really shows just how rock hard this band was. I remember rocking out to this in my room with my Gibson guitar. Everyone thinks of Europe as The Final Countdown band well this is the band I like to remember. Sure the ballad Dreamer shows the groundwork for Carrie,however, Scream of Anger shows that these guys were fast and mean at times. Buy this cd and take your self back a little bit enjoy some good hard rock!!!

BEFORE The Final Countdown =D

Europe before The Final Countdown was very much a hard rock band. Listen to tracks like Scream of Anger and Aphasia to hear the amazing John Norum. Actually, all of the songs are pretty much guitar oriented. This is a classic, AWESOME hard rock album and I'm glad it's finally on Itunes!

Awesome

this is probably one of greatest albums no ones heard of, and John Norum is a total beast on guitar, he's totally amazing

Originally a progressive rock group, Europe didn't achieve success until they reworked their sound into bombastic yet melodic pop-metal. In their first incarnation, the Swedish band was called Force.
