OOTW and Prisoners in paradise are stellar albums showing great techniques from Marcello and also awesome songwriting skills. With Kee, they became a much more Hard US act. The blues side was also very present on Prisoners in paradise despite the harder edge of the album.

IMO their level elevated with Kee. Le baron Boys demos from before the release of PIP was Hard US at his finest despite the lack of notable melodies (Yesterday's news per exemple). I wish they release this collection of great songs, or Marcello on his side.

To my taste, Kee was the perfect player for Europe around this 5 years era, his solos & riffs are one of the finest in the aor melodic rock genre (Halfway to heaven, Superstitious and many more).

I saw Europe 3 times, 2004 2006 2009. They're awesome on stage and Norum is a great guitar player too, great charisma and he suits their style now much more than back in the days. He's not as technical as Kee that's for sure, but he feels the notes he plays with great intelligence.

I miss the OOTW and PIP era. Great great period !!!

Concerning Norum and his solo career, his second album Face The truth around '89 was pretty much in the style of Europe if i remember well, especially with Tempest singing on the single... GREAT ALBUM !
