I thought Europe seemed to be trying to pick up from where they left off . they took a break after Prisoners in Paradise in 1991, returned with this, but the songs sound from the '90s . grunge, post-grunge, alternative, so it's as though they were sounding like they would've, had they continued making albums in the. '90s, following the less melodic metal trends as other melodic, metal bands from the '80s did. So it's interesting hearing an album like this, put out in 2004.

Start from the dark", as its ominous title states, refers to an attempt to rebuild the glory of a band that lost the way in the early 90's. I was never a HUGE europe fan. This CD is changing my mind every time I listen to it. Start from the Dark encompasses the best in Late 80's Early 90's metal when it was about to find it's groove. This is the CD we would have received if the 80's bands kept making music. Norum is fantastic, cutting edge even on some songs.

They're baaack! Nearly a decade-and-a-half has passed since we last heard from one of hair metal's leading bands, Europe, and the group has returned with Start from the Dark. While the group has earned a bit of a bad rap over the years (their keyboard-heavy tale of Armageddon, "The Final Countdown," was voted one of the 'Most Awesomely Bad Songs of All Time' on VH1), there's no denying that under all the pretty boy good looks and pop hooks, Europe was a talented band -- especially when compared to the other similar acts of the era. Europe's latest sees the group toughen up their sound a bit (especially when compared to their aforementioned Final Countdown era), as guitarist John Norum's heavy riffs serve as the main focal point, not keyboards, especially on such tracks as "Got to Have Faith" and the title track. In fact, even when the band takes the volume down a notch, as on "Reason," they wisely no longer try to heighten the 'syrup factor' with keyboards. Fans longing for Europe's return should enjoy Start from the Dark, even if their sound may be a bit heavier nowadays.
