|Got a hold of this just a couple of days ago(japanese edition) and yes,a good album but also it could have been easily in a John Norum's solo catalogue IMO...pure rock with a blues base added in some songs...highlights in here are "Riches To Rags","Firebox","Bag Of Bones","Demon Head","Doghouse","Mercy You Mercy Me" & "Beautiful Disaster"(B/T)...86/100|

|Sort of lost track of this band, but they are back on my radar now. Love this album. Very bluesrock oriented and also a bit groovy, but still rawgs. Glad to see that the poppy europe sound from the final countdown days is way over. 9/10|

|This one's a sleeper, misses that instant fix most Europe achieves of late, but Bag Of Bones a few more spins in order to grasp both its heavy leanings toward them blues and its beauty pays handsomely. At times such a departure from the Europe heyday they even warned us by releasing the aptly titled NotSupposedToSingTheBlues. But typically Europe write a darn good tune and BagOfBones is indeed soaked in quality. Opening tune Riches To Rags could easily have been lifted from PrisonersInParadise, it's catchy melodic cool hits a home run for those missing that old school Europeand elsewhere Mercy You Mercy Me also borrows ever so slightly from classic era Europe. But while the remainder of the album leans moreso to what we've heard in recent years, it's that quality that wins us over. The Title Track is beautiful so too is the (standard edition) closer Bring It All Home quite possibly my favorite ballad of the recent albums! Plenty to like here, voice, tunes performances all intact! 8.5|

|They are an alive band who lives in the real life.If you want them to play like in 80's,just drag their earlier albums out from the rack and enjoy yourself.|

|All four newest studio albums since their comeback with Norum are well-recorded, fine albums with a band in good form. BUT still we all (I think 90% of their fan base at least) miss their old choruses, melodies, keyboards that one can hear, and amazing guitar solos (both Norum & Marcello are worldclass players). I want to like the new style with downtuned guitars, bluesy riffs etc, but even though it's good music, compared to their classic albums the new ones fall flat! The truth hurts and I read that not all members in the band even like the new style.. At concerts people go nuts to Rock The Night, Superstitious, Scream Of Anger etc, but stand almost still hearing the new songs. That must count for something. Look at Ratt and Danger Danger, new albums, classic style, great songs, that's how you do it and everyone seems happy with it. Also a shame how they fired Kee Marcello, sad. They could have had two guitarists! Iron Maiden get along fine with three.. ego and money kill the music..|
