I think this was originally to be a solo release by Johnny.  He had a Pledgemusic campaign to help fund the album.  I recall Johnny mentioning Deen was guest drummer, so maybe that turned into some songwriting collaborations?

Dafuq!

Could you imagine if they were able to recapture some of that debut Hardline vibe??

I'd pay nearly any asking price for a legitimate HARDLINE follow-up (with all original members and original style).  The debut album is so damn good.

I remember first hearing (and seeing) them when they opened for Mr. Big back in late summer 1992 (I think it was 1992?).  Dude's rolled onto the stage and I remember thinking "Okay, that's Neal Schon."  This was pre-internet days, kids, so news and information (like this) was hard to come by :)

I've not been impressed with any of the so-called Hardline CD's since the debut... Adding Deen to the mix gives me optimism for this one, however.  Anyone know exactly why Joey Gioelli hasn't been involved with the band in 25 years?

Yeah, the original Hardline album is literally one of the best releases of the last 30 years. Essential.

I doubt it will be anything near that, given the softer Hardline tone that subsequent releases have taken, but one can dream...

And Deen seems to be a bit of a softy, too.

I still think it'll be good. Whatever it turns out to be.

Hardline and Roxy Blue certainly helped get me through the 90's... or what I call "The Dark Ages."

Not that great to be honest,  and I think Del Vecchio is involved again

What about the guitar player does anyone know if he played in another project before?  I think I recognized the guitar from an Issa video a few years back, could be the same guy

Johnny had mentioned on his Pledgemusic updates a few weeks back that the guitarist on the album was Eric Gadrix who he added also did some co-writes.  I think they used someone else for the video shoot.

Actually, please disregard my last post about guitarist.  Those pledgemusic updates were just in regards to his solo album. At first I thought those sessions morphed into this release with Deen.  However, I just read on Johnny's FB page that this album is separate from his solo which Eric Gadrix is the guitarist and Deen is guest drummer on a few tracks for the other release

    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label. 
    • Eye of the Tiger cover  
    • I don't think Frontiers is involved with this one
    • True they have been known for long delays between releases.  But over a similar 15 year span from '84 -'99 they put out 4 albums vs. 2.  And after Pyromania & Hysteria a delay was understandable following up hugely successful records (with long tours), Rick Allen lost his arm and had to relearn how to play, they scrapped recordings and started over with a different producer, and of course Steve's struggles with depression and alcohol eventually leading to his death while working on Adrenalize
