1st one was Great, 2nd was pretty good,3rd was decent and 4th was ok. So for me a decline with each release. Hoping for better this time around.

First album was incredible. Second was alright, and like everybody else seems to think, the quality has declined with every subsequent release. So much so that they're pushing out a second release within a single calendar year, apparently.

 

I have a lot of respect for Michael Palace and Daniel Flores as musicians, but when compared to the lineup from the first record, it just doesn't measure up.

Last one was as bland a vanilla milkshake.

I like all the albums but last one was very generic... even if I think I still liked it quite a bit.

First album has no weak links. One of my favorite Frontiers projects and still hits all the right notes, has aged wonderfully. Brilliant playing, singing, and production.

Second album has not aged as well. A few good songs but the production sounds like any other Flores production. I don't come back to it very often.

Third album sounds basically the same as the second sonically but with even fewer good songs. 

Fourth album, fuck off ADV

Fifth album...? Not a very encouraging trend here? The fact that it's being released so soon after the fourth is uh, not promising unless they got a new producer on the project.

TL;DR Dennis Ward and the Martin brothers are better at what they do than most.

Dennis Ward would be great for this!

As mentioned, first album was great, 2nd was good, but to be honest I gave up after the 3rd one which was a bland as hell. I'll approach with caution

    • Have to take that interview with a pinch of salt. Firstly because John said they have tried metal and tried grunge, but none of their albums are really either of those. They are just "modern" sounding which pretty much takes a small pinch of everything really. Yes songs like The Beast are about as close to metal as they have done, none of their albums scream metal or grunge. I also don't think you can really take much from anything John says as he is not the one controlling the band, that is Joey. Think I have said this story before, but a friend of mine is a huge Europe fan and she used to go to all their gigs and even hung out with them a few times. She was a massive fan of John but she said Joey was a lot tougher to get to know as he was like a dictator in the band. He said jump and John (and the others) said how high? I don't think Joey is a bad person or anything like that, just that he likes to run the band how he likes it. And with what Geoffrey just said, it does not matter what Ian hints at with how happy he might be with newer material, he knows what side his bread his buttered on and stays with the band. If he hated it that much, why doesn't he leave? Mostly because he knows this is where he is best off. He has worked with other artists like Glenn Hughes etc over the years, so he knows there is work out there for him, but he must feel that Europe is the best place for him.
    • I remember listening to an interview with Ian Haugland recently where he mentioned that ‘Prisoners in paradise’ was his favourite album and I got a very distinct impression he didn’t love what they were doing these days.    Same dude interviewed Kee Marcelo who said he’d have no interest in returning to Europe, hypothetically, of course, as Norum seems locked in… and he said not a chance if they kept playing what they are these days.    Either way, I hope this story is true because it’s an incredible waste of what could still be a good band. Savage waste, one might say, and I’d love to hear another crack at good music.

    • I think I'm becoming a fan!
    • Daniels,Bell and the drummer are nothing but worthless scabs and posers....I hope Steve Lynch buries these turds through litigation.If he could pull off a small miracle and pull Plunkett' back into the fold for a couple reunion gigs,that alone would be the biggest middle finger to these tossers.
