Europe - Walk The Earth (Silver Lining Music)
Graham Clark, Features Writer
Europe will always be remembered for one particular track, The Final Countdown. Hard to believe that it is over 30 years ago since the song got to Number 1 on the UK Singles chart.
If you didn't know the band are still together, still touring (they are currently on an arena tour with Deep Purple) and still making great rock music.
The last two albums were more blues inspired. On this new album they go back to being more rock based. The title track has all the usual Europe trademarks: melodic, memorable chorus, strong vocals on a euphoric song.
They can still do a good ballad too, Pictures could be the cousin to their big hit Carrie.

Turn to Dust closes the album, a slow burner ballad type track. Perhaps it's time to rediscover the band again? You will not be disappointed.
I give the album 3 out of 5.
