if you have ever been a fan of Neal Morse, you will likely love this album. It honestly feels like the most Spocks Beard album he’s recorded since leaving the band…
If melodic Hard Rock ever became en vogue again, Hardline could easily ride that wave to the top.
Their latest is called DeterminUs and is a genre-crossing stunner. Parts Power, parts AOR, parts Prog for good measure, and even a couple scoops of 70’s era Metal (think Rainbow)
Bless you, Frontiers for bringing this band back to the forefront. Fortune II is such an excellent album and the perfect accompaniment to their debut, despite such a time span between them
If Spirits of Fire the album doesn’t force you to break out the leather studded armbands, the patch adorned denim vest and propel you to throw the horns up and bang your head, then you might want to check your pulse, because you might be dead.

Patina is definitely more in line with the bluesier Badlands style while retaining some of the heavier more modern trappings of the last album.
How I ever doubted this album’s greatness, I’ll never know. I’ve said it before: sometimes an album catches you at the wrong time.
If this album isn’t at the top or at least in many Top 5 of the year lists I will be shocked. In a year of some standout releases, Groundbreaker with their s/t debut is pulling no punches and hopefully giving the fans of melodic rock not just another one off project..
