4Europe "Super Hits" is a cool '80's Metal listen. Posted by: Fiend from: Pennsylvania on Europe definitely made the most of synthesizers/keyboards with their commercial approach to Heavy Metal. I have my moments when I need some good old fashioned '80's commercial Hair Metal to listen to. Europe "Super Hits" covers ground very solidly with what Europe had to offer from 1984 to 1991. I admire the guitar skills of John Norum, he offers up plenty of energetic & heavy leads and solos throughout. Joey Tempest has the vintage Arena Rock vocals, he could easily overpower the music, yet I feel he never has. Joey Tempest has tailor made Hair Metal vocals, not too aggressive or too sappy. "Cherokee" is my favorite track on "Super Hits", it has a steady & heavy vibe that flows along with precise structure. "Time Has Come" rocks well, it is a deeper album cut that showcases John Norum very well on guitar. "Open Your Heart" sounds like a ballad, it is actually a hard rocking tune with Norum's signature guitar sound. "Let The Good Times Rock" is a feel good/party time Metal track that should be played the loudest for maximum enjoyment! "The Final Countdown" is Europe's biggest hit ever, it is a psyche you out tune that is now played at plenty of sporting events. You will hear ballads, with "Carrie" being the biggest one for Europe. If you like the Hair Metal from the '80's, then Europe "Super Hits" is a super choice at landing a complete 10 song collection of their best tunes. There are no liner notes really to speak of here, a brief one paragraph intro on the band plus the song credits is it.
