The title track of Europe’s third album is over 30 years old now, but it’s still among the most celebrated run of notes in popular music – so ubiquitous that the Queen could most likely hum it upon request. It was the opening for us to go on our journey," Tempest told Classic Rock in 2015. It gave us that chance to be a touring band, and it gave us an opening to be here today. Mark Burd: What a dated album! Europe’s The Final Countdown is a supreme example of 80s cheese. Often we’ll hear an album that’s a sign of the times, but it doesn’t age awkwardly. The same can’t be said of The Final Countdown. The opening title track is an epic synth-heavy rock anthem. What could/should set the stage for an amazing album instead opens the gates to a set of substandard, unexciting trope of overproduced swoon songs.
