|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 , 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.
