Total Control cd cover

Norum, John

Total Control

After leaving Europe at the height of their success, reportedly because he wanted to go in a heavier direction, I was excited about this one. Heís got some Swedish guy with a pretty good voice singing, but the songs are just okay and itís still got too much keyboards in it for my taste. The highlight is his cover of Vinnie Vincentís Back on the Streets. Not because itís so great, (itís not as good as the original) but just because it was cool that he covered it only a year after Vinnie released it. Norum really came into his own in 1990 when he played with Don Dokken and then two years later on his solo cd, Face the Truth. --Scott
