These days, caused by bad prospects on many levels, 80s pop culture offers a sanctuary for numerous people, who yearn for a positive future. Passage Back takes a look back at the late 70s, when the genre emerged and the cold war's nuclear threat was contrasted by an optimistic feeling that culminated in an euphoric final in the early 90s.

This is reflected in the album by a variety of moods.
