Main Line Riders - Shot in the dark

Juha Harjula Format: Album
Release date: 2007-12-26
Label: Retroactive
Genre: Rock
Artist discography


Main Line Riders is a pure Rock-N-Roll band that has been around for over 10 years. They deliver a nice mix of 80s rock´n´roll with modern day rock sleaze that reminds of Hanoi Rocks, Hardcore Superstar, Vains Of Jenna and Hellacopters.
This is a well-produced album but the songs are a bit up and down. They might not be as commercial as Hardcore Superstar but they know how to rock with a sleazy touch on a couple of tracks.

The start of the album with Ride The Main Line, One Ticket To Love and Throwin´ Bones To The Wolves are nice tracks. So is the ballad Here I Am that sounds more like Poison than the rest of the album, nice song. Rest of the album is a bit average and weak with a couple of really boring tracks such as Speed Queen, Pack Up Your Blues and Put The Hammer Down that really are just rubbish. The start of the album shows talent of this band but then it just gets average. If you´re into rock´n´roll these guys might please your rock hunger. I hope the next album will be better.
