John Norum - Total Control


John Norum's first solo venture divorced from his Europe band mates proves to be a huge success and perhaps the best album he ever wrote. Europe were hot, coming off of their iconic Final Countdown world tour when John expressed an interest in writing the bands songs along side their lead singer. When management asked him not to get involved in the song writing, and when the band choose to move into a more keyboard oriented style, Norum made the biggest decision of his life and left the band. His decision, although upsetting, was justified by this fantastic melodic hair metal rock out. As was the norm in his albums, John had many guest singers and musicians and it’s Norum’s powerful anthem Back On The Streets sung by Goran Edman which is the best track of the record. The last track is noticeably the weakest of the set, but it’s just a bonus track so no harm done. A superb set of melodic rock tracks which Norum delivers with great heart and skill.
