Notes:
Prisoners in Paradise is the fifth studio album by the Swedish rock band Europe. It was released on September 23, 1991, by Epic Records and spawned hits such as the title track, "Prisoners in Paradise" and "I'll Cry for You". Kee Marcello states in his 2011 biography that Bob Rock was the first choice for producer for this album, and agreed initially but pulled out to work on Metallica´s Black Album instead. The large number of finished bonus tracks is also explained in this book - the first version of this album, called "Seventh Sign" was rejected by the label in 1990 and the band had to write and record new songs. Five more tracks were demoed in addition, two of them were rewritten and became "New Love in Town" on Last Look at Eden and "Bring it All Home" on "Bag of Bones" (album). Most of the unreleased songs one can find on YouTube as demo recordings.

referencing Prisoners In Paradise, LP, Album, EPC 468755 1, 468755 1

Decent melodic rock @ it's most pompous & sanitized point. The album is the last in line of the band's pop-oriented 80's era, before termination and later reunion as a slight heavier 70's sounding unit. Commercially released 1991. Do i need to say more?
