Ya, there's some good stuff on there the more you listen to it. Just different than a lot of what they have done post-reunion. I'd like to see some tempo changes... a couple movers, but they seem stuck in the mid tempo range...maybe that's a Dave Cobb thing..idk.

The songs are streaming for a period of time at Planet Rock... Some comments on each track, then the track thru YT. Link below. http://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/exclusive-listen-to-europes-new-album-walk-the-earth-in-its-entirety/

A heavier track, but the most "Europe" sounding IMO of anything that's already been released. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNqxtnZX8Ok

This one is definitely growing on me the more I listen to it.

I saw him on Friday night in Philadelphia and seemed okay. Hopefully, he's okay and will be back at it soon.

I agree, heavy DP and I get some Thin Lizzy vibes too. Norum seems to be sticking to a pretty stable formula these days, at least with regards to his role in Europe. One of the few reviews I've seen said this is much more of a keyboard=Hammond centered album, so possibly the guitars took a back seat to some degree on this one?

I think the issue with Sambora and JBJ is a sum of it's parts thing. Separate they are never as good as they are together. And over the past couple BJ albums that Sambora was still around for, you could see his influence was dimishing and Shanks seemed to be the new "cooler kid" that Jon wanted to collaborate with.

I'm not a huge Bowie fan, and I'm having a hard time thinking this is the complete song as it sounds incomplete to me, but maybe that's just me. I read a review over the weekend online that said this album is "very good," but overall like nothing you have heard from them before. I guess we'll see.

As usual, some that belong and some that don’t. Specifically for Bon Jovi, because I know them best of this bunch… If you’re a “conspiracy theorist”-type and believe that the HoF tries to push groups that can provide a reunion of sorts, I see them inducting BJ and trying to get Sambora back on stage with the band, the way they were hoping for Perry with Journey and Cetera with Chicago.

It's not great, but it's pop and I'm sure they are trying to target the largest listening population. Who knows, the other tracks may be something more in line with what you might expect from Sambora at least.

I agree...It seemed very average until Doug's guitars kicked in and the long solo. Totally changed the dynamic of the song.

The rumor is that while they are still paying homage to their influences, this album is more diverse stylistically that WoK.

Seeing all the comments about people being upset that they don't sound like every other band or their 80's sound... They make no bones about the fact that they are not going back to the 80's sound and have said this for years. So, those who hope they will, this should be no surprise to you, and if you are still upset about that, just move on from them, stop hoping for a return to that sound, an

This is totally in the same vein as the last two albums, especially with Dave Cobb producing this one again after War of Kings. It's a grower for sure, but I like it. And, at least for me, typically the better tracks on a Europe album aren't what get released as singles. But I respect those who aren't into their contemporary sound compared to their earlier years, but I am still happy they are

Very different at the time, but I have always felt that with Slang DL was a bit ahead of the curve with it, and not being Hysteria or Adrenalize, it threw everyone. Much like Journey, DL has their sound and if they deviate too far from what everyone is used to, fans have a hard time with it.

Who knows what the entire story really is. My opinion is that there has always been tension or personality conflicts between at least Gaines and Michael Sweet, so this is nothing new. Just the latest chapter in relationship drama between them all.

I think everyone is giving this guy too much credence. It appears more that he's surmising what it would look like "IF" there were a "Jonathan Cain Christian Version of Journey" and what that "might" look like. He's not saying it is planned or it will happen. He's nothing more than a video blogger-type giving his opinion based on what he's heard/read or whatever,

Maybe not a classic, but I always liked "Walking Away from the Edge" of the Red 13 EP. It's darker, and I like Augeri's vocals and Neal's guitar on that one.

I'd say if either, it would be Cain. Even Arnel has responded to a couple of Schon's tweets. At any rate, Arnel has made enough money now that if he want's to wash his hands of all this, he can, and could live comfortably.

Tempest can still sing in the original key, but chooses not to because what would happen to him vocally. So, I guess it's just up to ones opinion. He sang in the original key when heading that Rock Meets Classic show or whatever it's called a year or two back. After some shows, they cut down half a step, or something at his request.

Disagree here. For the sound they (or the record company) were going for at the time post-Norum's departure, he was a good fit, but a different type of player. Kee's problem was that he wasn't a childhood friend with Tempest, so after a while, their relationship became strained.

Lou's been doing quite a few solo shows, and it's taken some time, but he's been able to build his voice back up. A few years back he didn't sound nearly this good. Glad to see him doing well.

I agree with you... Something live from the OOTW or PIP era would have been great. Rumor is they have all the stuff in the "vault" but w/Kee out of the band, sadly it will likely never see the light of day. I would also have liked to have seen a follow up to PIP with some of the songs that didn't make the original album. Some of them are great tunes and I liked the direction they wer

I haven't met a ton of musicians, but most have all been pretty good. The standouts for me have been the guys in Europe. All pretty friendly, especially Ian Haugland. Norum is the least social of the bunch in that type of setting, but the others were all very friendly. Michael Sweet was great and very friendly. Steve Augeri was great and very chatty the couple times I have met him.

Each genre of music changes and what people think of it changes. What was great and admired by those critics and fans as "Classic" 25-30 years ago may be completely different today. Personally, what you as a fan may consider classic, in my opinion, ties as much to you emotionally as it does the the quality of said release. As a result, it will always be hard to match what is consider

I saw him David play a couple times, a few years back with ZO2. So unfortunate and sad.

Totally agree. A lot of what we think is/was great is because we've pushed it heights that anything new can't reach because it likely hasn't impacted us as emotionally as the older music did.
