Hardline - Double Eclipse (1992)

Guess one of the positives working from home is I have more time to listen to music. Couple of months ago I decided to revisit my AOR/Hair Metal/Melodic Rock collection, feels great to spin these albums again.

Double Eclipse - Absolute classic of our genre. No doubt at all. Stunning from start to finish. Nice to hear Schon cut loose and Gioeli is in top form. One of my favourites from 1992. 

On an album full of perfection I always had a soft spot for ‘I’ll Be There’. Superb track.

If anyone saw these guys back in 92 I’d love to hear their thoughts.

Awesome Japanese bonus track -

I played Ill Be there at a rock station, I thinkk I Cant Find My Way is a absolutely beautiful song, and I fucking despise ballads.

I’m okay with a ballad or 2 but I much prefer a higher ratio of rockers. Agreed it’s a stunning ballad. In The Hands Of Time ain’t half bad either.

"Love Leads the Way" is an essential track. I understand why the Japanese pressings had bonus tracks, but I don't understand why bands would elect to have some of their best songs be said bonus tracks, and ensure the majority of their fanbase would never hear them. Until years later when the internet became much more established. 

The combination of "31-91" and "In the Hands of Time" is such a perfect album closer, I've sequenced "Love Leads the Way" between "Bad Taste" and "Can't Find My Way." The album flows much better, and, in my opinion, is complete.

"Takin' Me Down" is one of THE songs of the era. I love "Hot Cherie" and "Everthing" also.

Actually, the whole album is a killer and definitely no skips required.

That's pretty awesome mate. Did you have the album at that stage? It would have been great regardless, but it would have been even better if you were already familiar with the tracks.
