The Final Countdown is the third studio album by the Swedish hard rock band Europe, and one of the most glorious launches in history. Released in 1986, the album was a huge commercial success selling over 3 million units in the United States alone, peaking at number 8 on the . Recorded at Powerplay Studios in Zürich, Switzerland, the band worked with American producer Kevin Elson, who had worked with bands like Journey and Lynyrd Skynyrd

Europe released two album on the Swedish label Hot Records before getting a deal with Epic in 1985. The signing was a fortuitous one for the label, as the band was on the cutting edge of the hair metal trend, with a slick, keyboard-driven sound and an MTV-friendly look. The Final Countdown" was the first single Epic released, and it broke the band worldwide, going to in the UK and in America. Seeking the modern synth-rock sound of the mid-'80s, Epic Records put the band with producer Kevin Elson for The Final Countdown album. He had worked on the 1983 Journey album Frontiers. This song has been used in the TV shows Arrested Development, Chuck, Glee and Gotham. Movies include Shiner (2000) The Kid & I (2005) and Pitch Perfect (2012). It also gets a mention in a 2015 episode of the animated show Gravity Falls, when a character says, "It's the final countdown!

One of the most glorious launches in history, the title track for the thrice-platinum The Final Countdown is so bombastically brilliant, such glorious garbage, that this nuclear hair assault could only spew from the vacuous '80s. But the full-tilt follow-up "Rock the Night" rules also: "You know it ain't easy/Running out of thrills. Carrie" comes off a consummate butane ballad. Meanwhile, the rest of the disc packs so much power that Swedish superheroes Europe get away with all the processed pretension.

Christmas of 87, I received a walkman, Bon Jovi's "Slippery When Wet", and this album on cassette… about 20 years later I began working in the music business. COINCIDENCE???Well, people should know at least one thing by now - when it comes to pop, few do it better than the Swedes, and this album is a great example. This is almost the prototypical metal "boy band" - very pretty boys, very catchy songs, and very inoffensive overall. Still, there are many far worse things that were born out of the 80's "glam" era, like Trixter, Slaughter, Winger, et al. Give me this record any day over those "glam ballad" bands. At least these guys knew how to have some fun.

So very 80s rock revival. My copy has embossed sleeve and poster included.

bought this looking for the cheesiest 80's "metal" i could find at my record store. I think I succeeded ...

It's not because they're Swedish (or whatever), it's not because they're heavy metal, it's not because they're using a keyboard - it's because they're NOT. Some of the worst quasi-metal stuff ever released. It is truly a miracle that even the title song itself survives for these guys to cash in on it every time a new TV-compilation CD appears for sale...

BOOOOOOLighten up man. This is cheesy yet FUN saccharine hair-metal.
