Hardline the original band is long gone as it's been the Johnny Gioeli and friends show after the debut with a revolving door of musicians. Even his own brother bowed out after "II (2002)'. Gioeli has been having allot collaborations as of late, including with the underwhelming 'Robert Rodrigo Band', and a solo release last year. Since the only member from 'Double Eclipse' (Deen Castronovo), who he also made an album with last year. You would think he would have been on "Life" for nostalgia sake. As it's obvious this is a grab at (1992) gusto. The opening track "Place To Call Home" sounds like a b side track from "Double Eclipse" as it's a catchy song and probably the best glimpse of former glory post D.E.. The band also does a nice tribute to Queen (Freddie Mercury) with " Who Wants To Live Forever". In (2019) you take what you can get in the MHR world, as "Life" is no where near the debut's gold standard, but it's good for today.

The Stallion says, "Far from the gold standard of [1992], but good enough for today." Interesting comment, and telling. Sometimes I feel like the supply of good hooks is finite. Is it because we're all older now and nothing sticks the way it did when our brains were younger and more malleable? Or have we really used up most of the melodies? So much of this "melodic rock" that you guys swoon over, all this Scandi-AOR and all these Frontiers pick-up bands ... they just blur on by, technically adept, but rarely hitting home. Even Johnny Gioeli, who still has the perfect voice for this kind of music, is hurting for hooks.

thanx to frontiers records for keeping alive the flame of melodic hard rock.thanx to frontiers for making hardline s albums.this new realise is an atomic bomb.mr gioeli sing always like a god,years after years.the production is perfect ,all songs are killer songs.it s a fireworks ,an orgy of top class hard fm.big sound ,big guitars,irresistible choruses ect ect.track 12 is a nice ballad not essential and track 13(japan bonus track) is piano version of "this love" track 8 not essential so.nevertheless with the eleven first songs we touch the sky,we are in aor heaven.

I enjoyed the last 2 Hardline CD's, but ultimately they were forgettable, Del Vecchio is a "good" songwriter (but not great) and he spreads himself too thin with all his Frontiers contributions. This new CD seems to be an improvement, it's a little more "driving"/guitar orientated (which might be due to the new guitar player Percudani having some writing credits?). Gioeli is still a powerhouse vocalist and that also helps elevate moderate material. IMO, the song/single "Take A Chance" is the best thing the modern line-up has released. Is "Life" as good as Double Eclipse?, no, better than the last 2 Cd's?, definitely. Favorite songs 1,2,3,7,11.

Picked this up the other day. I agree with many of the comments. These guys are never going to reach the glory of their fantastic debut, but this album is good. Nothing earth shattering and yes, we've heard many of these riffs before, but I've always enjoyed Gioeli's vocals (he and Elefante sound a lot alike, IMO). I think this album is worth checking out.
