|Dutch rock at it's peak, beautiful ballads, blazing guitar from a very young and talented Adrian Vandenberg and nice vocal harmonies by Bert Heerink. Comparable to other Dutch rockers, Vengeance & Helloise.

|This album really took me by surprise! Adrian is SOOO talented...Where did they get their inspiration??? It's typical hardrock but I've never heard it done this way before...like upside down...Take a listen instead!! ALL THE WAY, VOODOO and FIGHTING AGAINST THE WORLD are the highlights...By the way, Adrian handles both keys and guitars plus he painted the cover himself and produced the album...Talk about talent...

|Yes, Fighting against the world is a must have heavy roch song, first class, great!!!

|If you want the definition of 'Power Ballad' then look for 'Once In A Lifetime' Bravo!!

|Do you know why I hate most new rock? Because the bands have no sense of melody? Listen to 'All The Way' or 'Alibi': they rock, but you can't get the melodies out of your head. That's the way it used to be done. And not only melodies, but intelligent melodies, not moronic, repetitive nonsense. Or maybe I'm just getting old (for the record, I'm only 29)

|Adrian Vandenberg causes the obvious comparisons to Whitesnake. Maybe just a touch of early Y&T. This is a solid rock album but actually fails to capture your attention.

|A great third and final Vandenberg realease! PRELUDE MORTALE is a great :39 piece of Adrian Vandenberg going crazy on the acoustic guitar! If you dont have a Vandenberg cd yet, I suggest buying the first self-titled one. check out my comments for it!

|I really love this CD, one of my faves from the 80's. Sure, Vandenbergs guitar playing is the hook they hung their hat on, but for me the high point was the singing of Bert Heerink. He may have gone on to record with someone else, but unfortunately I never heard from him after this. This album featured some fantastic songs (eg. Once In a Lifetime, Alibi, How Long, Voodoo) and is a truly underappreciated gem.

|Just when you thought that Vandenberg could not top their debut, they come back with their best album. Includes my favorite songs of their career in 'Once In A Lifetime', 'All The Way', and 'Voodoo'. Melodic hard rock perfection! 10/10

|It's hard to describe how much I love this CD. It is thoughtful, detailed, crisp, varied and best of all UNIQUE. From the 'crew of Vikings' backing vocals to the classical yet melodic guitar leads, 'Alibi' is a pop-metal masterpiece. It also shows how much Adrian Vandenberg was wasted in Whitetrash... er, Whitesnake. And as Scandinavia mentioned above, the guy even painted the cover! Easily a 10/10. Reissued by Wounded Bird Records in 2002.

|I like the lyrics on the Vandenberg albums - a little better than the norm for some reason. This one is a little more melodic than the others and I quite like 'All the way' and the wonderful 'Once in a lifetime' as well as 'Alibi'. Some cool songs, a pretty cool hard rock disc.
