I was expecting worse after reading the comments... not the greatest song ever but to me that sounded like a leaning towards Double Eclipse more than the "Euro" sound of their recent albums...

I listened to the samples for the rest of the album and it's definitely more heavy than the last 2 albums.  Chameleon sounds pretty good to me. This will probably my favourite of the last 3 albums.

In listening to this again, it does sound a little closer to the early Hardline sound than they have in awhile, I like it

agreed, not great, but solid tune, it didn't really click for me the first time I listened to it but having given it another chance today I enjoyed it more

Nothing wrong with the song(I do hope there are better though).

100% filler to my ears. It does sound distinctly familiar, though. Can't pick the tune but jeez it sounds like I've more or less heard the song before. 

Anyway, it does definitely have a debut vibe to it - just sounds like one of the left-overs that wouldn't even have been considered in the top 30 choice cuts to make the album. ;)

ok,will probably sound better in the context of an album,but atm im not feeling the new material at all  :( find it ironic that the new disc is called "life" when for me the life of band ,as in its sound now, is nowhere near the energetic and fun sound of the debut that made them such as a favourite within HH.

new song is a bit lackluster to say the least, sounds closer to a filler type ballad from an Axel Rudi Pell album than what I'd expect Hardline to release as a single/promo track

Got my copy of the album yesterday and I think it's very good after listening to it a few times. Definitely much improved effort over the last 2 albums IMO. Some fantastic rockers on this one.

I actually really like the last 2 albums, and for me this fits in very nicely. The only album I don't care for is Leaving The End Open,

Decent production and good sound, but there's no songs that really stand out here for me. 'Out of time' and 'Handful of sand' are the best, but still don't really cross the line for me. :(

I've listened a few times and don't remember a single song. It's just got nothing that pulls you in despite not having anything terrible on it.

I think this album is alright but none of the tracks really stand out to me.  Pretty much every album before this has had one or more tracks that I thought were killed.  Not so much with this one.  And I *really* don't get the pre-release hype comparing this to "Double Eclipse".  It's not even in the same stratosphere in terms of quality or the sound.

    • Yeah, there's some good songs in there but the vocals are pretty bad.  I'll pass.
    • I don't think grunge had anything to do with their demise as they split up in 1987, way before grunge came along. I really don't think they were ever considered a flash in the pan either, as the band had existed in some form or another since the mid 1970s, and they got their first taste of success in the UK in 82/83, and in fact it was the humourous videos that got them their foothold in their native country (the songs were certainly not humourous). Their biggest problem as that Stay hungry was such a huge hit that people felt Come out and play was a step backwards, and the band was already in turmoil by then. MTV refusing to play the Be chrool to your scuel, video. Poor concert ticket sales. And then AJ up and quit at the end of the tour. Their biggest problem was that it took them so long to finally break through that by the time they did, the age old trope of band in fighting became their downfall. I remember several interviews when Dee was promoting Widowmaker, and he was incredibly harsh about the rest of TS. Claiming they had no talent and their idea of back vocals was just shouting etc. I am a big fan of Dee, but I can imagine his big personality can be a lot to deal with in real life, and he certainly took over creative control of TS which probably pissed off the guys who were in the band before he ever joined.
    • Heard this today,it starts off well,the first few tracks are pretty good and Richard Black sounds well...but its downhill for me from about track 5 or 6 and I can't really recall the last couple as they passed me by due to my initial disappointment 
    • Hmmm sounds interestin.
    • Apart from a song here and there, mostly no.
    • I grew up in Maryland laws in that state were crazy, I remember a rain tax there not long ago
    • I dont get the hype for Steel Panther they are like a bad 80s tribute band 
    • I grew up in Maryland used to see shows at Network that later turned into Daytona then when I was old enough Hammerjacks in Baltimore, Frederick had big metal rock scene too I think it still does this is a great blog for metal in MD,dc and northern VA, https://dcheavymetal.com/
    • I liked the Clash, but for most part no
