HUMAN NATURE by Hardline
(Frontier Records)

I believe if you ask any fan of Hardline, what their favorite release is? They'd more than likely say, the band's debut 'Double Eclipse'. The bar was raised so high after that release that what followed were good, but not great albums. Some saying, including myself, that the band had lost their edge. Maybe due to the numerous line up changes. Well folks, Hardline are back with their latest release, 'Human Nature' and I will say after just one listen the band have found that edge and have released their most powerful recording to date. When I say powerful, I'm talking in your face melodic hard rock that has a serious attitude. Johnny Gioeli – Lead Vocals, Alessandro Del Vecchio - Keyboards, Backing Vocals, Josh Ramos - Guitars, Anna Portalupi - Bass and Francesco Jovino - Drums.  All these musicians have an impressive pedigree, but what makes Hardline special is how well their unique and different talents blend together. They definitely came up with the right formula here. Every song on this album is instantly memorable and they all – seriously, there's no filler here – come together perfectly. Highlights include “Where Will We Go From Here,”, "Nobody's Fool" the title track, the monster "World Is Falling Down", in my opinion the heaviest song I've heard from the band and "In The Dead Of Night". If you've enjoyed recent Hardline releases but have wished they'd do something that made you feel the way their debut did, your wait is over.  'Human Nature' is a powerhouse of release from Hardline and is one of the best rock albums 2016 has to offer. - Highly Recommended
