|BRILLIANT 10/10.This is a fuking great album like a all 3 albums.
|From: TIM (2)

|Another F.F album,& another set of 80's sounding key-driven soaring-vocaled AOR. But there's 2 huge issues here. One being that all the good tracks are in the first 6,afterwards it falls flat (even using a re-hash from the last album; Jap bonus "Half Way Home"). The other being the production. Another tinny 'only-drums-and-vocals-are-audible' mix,& it spoils things. Tracks 2,4,5 & 6 are stunning;brilliant AOR. But,despite a great catalogue,I'm still waiting for that killer F.F album. 7.5/10.

|I have to admit I think this is the best album from these guys - the most consistent. Sorry Tim(2) but I definately disagree about production and think this is easily their best sounding disc - maybe a little heavier than usual? I do agree that the best songs are at the start, especially the beautiful album fave 'I hope you don't mind'. There's a few dodgy lyrics, simple melodies and so on, but I think this CD succeeds well at what it sets out to achieve. Good, simple AOR. Some great solos too.

|Agree this is their strongest album to date.Might just be me but I think the vocals are a little more high pitched than on their first 3 albums - a little like Lou Nadeau on the Wrabit albums. This is no criticism - the material is strong and production excellent. Great that there are still some bands sticking to their guns and making fine AOR like this.
||Date: November 24, 2006 at 17:23|
|first off, the production seems better then the last album, the overall album is a bit heavier then normal, which is not a bad thing, and the vocals do seem higher this time, and I seem to have a little problem listening all the way through because of the high pitch vocals, who knows, my view may change, but on first few listens, I really enjoy this one, songs 1-8 are all killer for me, although I still say the 2nd album is my fav, this would be the second fav FFrontier for me!!!

|hate to come right back, but while doing paperwork for a few hours, this played over and over, and wow, it really sank in, really great album aside from a few corny lyrics, but Lion's Den is a grower and this is a really good one indeed!!!!

|Album no.4 & their best yet. The first 7 tracks are where it's at especially 'Freelight','Dynamo'(Very Aldo Nova in it's main riff),'Foolish Pride','Someone's Watching' & 'All The Way' both which could have come straight off a Survivor album. Originality is definately NOT the name of the game here, but there is no doubting the quality of songs. Production is pretty good but still lacks bottom end & I'm sure Rob Moratti has been at the Helium more than ever. A quality AOR disc in '06 (Finally)

|I just heard song samplers of this cd and it blew my mind!.Hope to get it as soon as possible.Wonderful album with catchy aor tunes.A really good release of 2006.
||Date: December 30, 2006 at 12:32|
|A totally class act, who don't reinvent the wheel, but put the recent albums from Journey and Survivor to shame. The opening four cuts, along with 'Nothing Is Easy' make this album an absolute modern day classic and an absolute must-have for any passionate AOR fan. This band are yet to put a foot wrong. Can't wait for the next one! 9/10.

|I got this for Christmas, I really do live for this kind of melody. It really doesn't matter how dumb the lyrics are they are simply another instrument. I've no idea what a "Dynamo" is but who cares when it sounds that good. The last time a song blew me away was with Zeno's "Troubled Love", this is just as great. The Survivor rip off on track 6 is also outstanding...but I'm still wondering what a pretty girl like you is doing in a place like this...seems nothing ever stops the dynamo. 9/10.

|FANTASTIC ! That sums this beauty up You are so right about the production Geoff. It is indeed easily their best sounding to date. And yep these guys are still to put a foot wrong. Album 1 = 8,7 Album 2 = 9 Album 3 = 8 Freelight = 9,2 Hope to see many more releases from FF !

|A esto yo le llamo "Back to Eighties". Gran disco y lo mejor en lo que al AOR respecta en el 2006 aunque mi favorito es el de Street Talk. Muy buena producción, Moratti tiene la voz con el sello 80s, me encanta. Teclados muy buenos y solos excelentes. La 1 y 2 están buenazas pero el resto lo está más aún, gran nivel. Compra o muere. 9.3/10

|Maravilhoso CD!!! Nota 9,5 de 10.. Rob Noratti temuma voz sensacional. AOR puro...algumas passagens das músicas melembram Survivor mas coma voz bem aguda que lembram um pouco o Steve Perry de antigamente. Todos os cds dessa banda são maravilhosos...

|Solo me queda decir mis favoritas del disco: "Foolish Pride", la semi-balada "I Hope You Don´t Mind", "Someone's Watching You" (es notorio que te recuerde al "High On You" de Survivor), "Nothing Is Easy" "Lion´s Desk" todos estos son temas 10 puntos para mí. La "Only the Lonely" quizás un poco saturada, el resto muy bueno. Discazo. 9.3/10

|Esta banda no me gusta del todo la razon simple "Rob Moratti" el tipo de voz que menos me gustan muy empalagoso y no me deja escuchar una cancion a full volumen porque dan ganas de bajarlo cuando empieza a cantar y en la actualidad a salido bastantes cantantes con timbre de voz similar y eso baja el nivel de la banda, este album en estilo 9/10 pero en voz 3/10 y los coros tampoco ayudan quiza en el primer album Moratti hizo lo mejor que pudo, esta banda en voz y coros = un desastre muy debiles.

|Listened last night this one,it's indeed one of the best aor cds'in the last period and one of the greates aor band still in activity but I am very disappointed about Rob Moratti's voice:is he artificial or what??It's not possible to reach some tonalities without any kind of effects,too high and out of any contest,a pity that ruins a little this little masterpiece IMO.
||Date: February 27, 2007 at 6:29|
|Artificial voice??!!... Moratti is a great f$%&£& singer!!; he sounds like a mix of C.J. Snare (Firehouse), Tony Harnell (TNT) and Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon), he's sooo talented. He's got Italian blood, man, and, you know, Italian pepople CAN sing.. This album an' this band are amazing: I've never listened to some melodic rock stuff like that from a long long time. This album will pass the test of time, you bet. I write for an Italian rock web-zine (www.audiodrome.it) and my review is a total

|tribute to this masterpiece. We all have to say thank you to these guys for keeping hard rock music still "hot" and attractive. LET YOUR FREEELIIIIIIIGHT SHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
||Date: February 28, 2007 at 16:41|
|Sorry but you have misunderstood me.I know Moratti is a great singer but in this one there are some"strange"effects that create a little articial effect sometimes,if you know the old cartoon"The Chipmanks"you can understand what I want to say.I also remember that Rob Moratti sung in a complete different way 10/12 years ago,try to listen to again Moratti/desolation cd.It's indeed the best aor band in activity.
||Date: February 28, 2007 at 20:16|
|Moratti/Desolation album??...Actually I've never listened to it,how does it sound like?
||Date: March 2, 2007 at 11:16|
|I must listen to again it,I don't remember now how it sounds but I can say you it's not a great cd,the genre is a sort of solid hard rock with some modern influence if I well remember.Take a look to the comments there,BTW it's absolutely not essential IMO.
||Date: March 26, 2007 at 9:44|
|Sorry,but i`m not the biggest fan of Morattis voice. Don`t like it very much.I like stronger voices,like Brock,Huff,Christian...etc Now i take my Slamer CD and put it in the player ! Because Slamer is QUALITY MUSIC !!! You know what i mean ???

|Totally agree with you Melodiker Slamer is QUALITY but Final Frontier??? & Moratti??? nop

|Good generally album with strange to get in use voice....You will love it or you''ll hate it. 82/100

|Great AOR Band & excellent CD! Moratti voice is like Michael Sweet i think but isn't bad! This IMO.

|This album is close 2 perfection!!!..loved it all!!! ...Rob Moratti is the new singer of the also Canadian Band and Prog legends Saga...talkin' about this one,well,an album packed with great songs,with hooks and melodies that could easily delight us and put a smile in our faces ...am i exagerating???..doubt it!!!...songs..."Freelight" & "Dynamo" both excellent tracks with catchy sing along choruses,"Foolish Pride" & "Only The Lonely" my faves and perhaps the best ones off the album,"Someone's Watching You" sounds like a song taken from any The Outfield album (band) but with a rockier and edgy sound,"All The Way" is all the way catchy & "Half Way Home" is apart from catchy,a nice one too...well Saga have visited my country like 5 times through all these years and recently they performed with Moratti as the lead singer...saw them and the only thing is that honestly even though is a great vocalist and did a great job in the new Saga album,FF is the band he has 2 be with...98/100
