The Final Countdown Slippery When Wet

IMO, Shanks has changed the sound of the band as the producer, and in many ways is the writing partner Sambora used to be. Shanks even plays in the band. Some might say that once you get that close, you lose your objectivity, where another producer might be able to get something else out of them because they are hired for the album and then move on to other projects. I too don't hate too often

I was going to say something along the same lines. Vinnie was never going to be asked to be on the cover of GQ. Who says you have to be good looking to be talented at something!

You have to take this guy with a grain of salt. It is at the end of the day his opinion. That said, whether these bands are current day Journey knock-offs or trying to be is determined by the ears of those listening. That said, and the point was made by someone else. A lot of melodic rock sounds the same. It is not always considered good or groundbreaking, but everyone is a copycat to some d

Thanks... I must have missed the stuff on the first EP.

Some of the tracks aren't that bad. That said, those hoping for old school BJ aren't going to get it. What has perplexed me since this whole RSO thing started was that one of RS biggest reasons for moving on was wanting to sing... Unless I've missed something, Orianthi seems to be getting more of the lead and primary vocals.

Europe is definitely a better live act than they ever have been on the album, and the few times I have seen them, they have never disappointed. That said, I could see how some might find their current output live, followed by Deep Purple a bit of a bore, at least in the sense of tempo, since many tracks are in that mid-tempo range, with a similar vibe. Like Deep Purple and DP Lite.

The potential could be there, but that's 2 big egos with DC and RS right there.

Agreed... It amazes me the people that keep dropping the kind of money they are asking for tickets these days year after year to see the same show summer after summer.

I know what you're saying, but It's well known that they don't have a choice...Paul and Gene say... you're the Catman and Spaceman, and you'll like it. And, I'm sure Tommy likes the paycheck...anyone would.

No doubt they are visiting her family and doing some shows just like last time.

Agreed. Also, I think the difference is that Robert and Oz are family and longtime friends. Gaines was never as close in the terms of those types of relationships.

Just speculation on my part since they are eluding to the tour there, but haven't announced anything. Why tease if everything is lined up?

They may also be heading your way with someone else, which could be why the ramp up, but delay in actually releasing the tour info. They could be waiting for everything with whomever else to be confirmed, or possibly going with a larger act that they are supporting to make their announcement.

I thought the same thing when I watched the interviews too... Too bad they didn't know what the other was talking about before put it all together...

Not saying I dislike it, it has it's moments, and tracks are growing on me the more I listen to it. It's been a lot better now that I have the album in hand verses playing the tracks off the PlanetRock site. If flows better. I'd doubt there's a bigger Europe fan on the board than I am. All I am saying is that while they do change things up album to album, over the the last 3, there are a lot

listen, I love Europe, my favorite band since I've been a kid. The ablum i growing on me, but a lot of their songs these days are the same tempo and starting to sound a bit alike in some cases.

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.

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

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
