From: Storm Date: January 12, 2002 at 23:07
Great Album. Be sure to catch Sound of a Breaking Heart and Tomorrow never Comes.. If you like Coney Hatch, Pretty Maids, or the like you will like this album

obra maestra del hard rock americano todos los temas se salen

AWESOME! One of the best albums of it's type ever! There is not 1 poor track on the whole album.

From: Shoemaker Date: March 8, 2002 at 6:43
Sorry Large, in my opinion there is only one good track on the album. It's the worst album from this band the first album and the "recycled" album are much better than this pice of shit!!!

From: The Prophet Date: May 9, 2002 at 13:40
For my taste this is much better than their first release. Can't hide love is a wonderful anthem, Sound of a breaking heart is a powerfull ballad a la Survivor. I played this one lots of time It reminds me that Dutch girl that I get that summer. Ok Prophet get many points from me because we share the same name.

What a great band how i miss the Playpen and Edgar Cayce and many a missed thursday for work glad i found this site

un disco inmenso de una banda inmensa 10/10

From: Louis X. Date: August 31, 2002 at 12:42
This disc reflects the stunningly complete combination of musicianship,beautiful tone,sonic power,genre and era commercial appeal,and flawless, commited, emotional delivery. To see this stellar band live was stunning, as all the above elements were evident along with the added exitement of unparalelled performance and clarity of sound. Sadly, this and their other two recorded offerings will have to serve their legacy well,as they no longer seemto perform in any of Prophet's forms. See the Where'

CD absolutamente imprescindible para todos los amantes del Hard AOR.El primero también es muy bueno.

From: telemaco Date: March 13, 2003 at 14:51
Disco IMPRESCINDIBLE. La balada Sound of a breaking heart es impresionante.

From: JOURNEY Date: March 15, 2003 at 14:29
what!???!! only a good track!!???? all the tracks are good!!!! A SUPERALBUM!!!!!!! MASTERPIECE!!!

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: March 17, 2003 at 10:27
Sigue la estela de su disco anterior,se nota que está mucho mas adentrado en los 80 y a mi me gusta algo mas que el 1º,sobre todo el segundo corte con esa belleza instrumental que describe la guitarra.Tiene algun que otro corte tambien digno de escuchar,pero...no se,a mi me da la sensación de que les falta un punto(o dos)para entrar en el grupo de los grandes discos de los 80.Disco para seguidores de grupos como Surgin,Streets,Phenomena y similares.TU MISMO.

From: RAFA Date: March 30, 2003 at 20:44
Sound of a breaking heart !Wow!!!!awesome song.

From: vicrock Date: November 8, 2003 at 21:39
Tal vez el mejor disco de ése año. The record of that year!

From: galliaubagne Date: November 11, 2003 at 15:01
un chef d'oeuvre du hard fm de la fin des années 80.dommage qu'il soit quasiment impossible de trouver cet album en cd en france. Coup de chapeau à Spencer Proffer qui a su produire des albums de reve durant les eighties (remember QUIET RIOT IV, KICK AXE: VICES, KING KOBRA: READY TO STRIKE, EYES...)

From: pablo Date: November 15, 2003 at 13:38
Uno de mis discos favoritos .Russell Arcara lo borda ,una verdadera obra maestra melodica ,10/10

Hyperspace- Great piece. Great memories guys- (see my post under Prophet album 1). Glad to have stumbled across this to share my blessings- The best to all of you-

From: toccata Date: March 19, 2004 at 18:04
Have to say anybody growing up in central jersey knows this band. Without a question a shame they didn't reach higher success considering the garbage that has been signed since. Recently bought a high-end turntable, the first 2 records were a must to have.. Was able to find both in new sealed condition. Still one of the best sounding productions. Great Job guys, when is EC coming back to Cryans?

this disc rules!!one of my favorites cd

From: TIM (2) Date: July 9, 2004 at 5:21
Quite a few negatives on this one, which I don't get at all. Much gentler on the guitar than the Prophet S/T, but a very thin and tinny sound kinda spoils things a little. Some truly brilliant material on here though, "Can't Hide Love" and "Red Line Rider" are just pure AOR of the highest class. Some tracks aren't as good as others, but this is still essential listening (as is the S/T). "Recycled" isn't. 9/10.

From: eugenio Date: August 13, 2004 at 20:05

From: Jgg Date: August 20, 2004 at 12:07
Para mi la mejor cancion del disco es, Can't Hide Love, es exelente.

From: run2u Date: August 25, 2004 at 12:35
Un rollo.Sonido antiguo(que no añejo,eso sólo le pasa al material realmente bueno)y temas aburridos,a veces demasiado recargados y pretenciosos.Las cuatro primeras canciones merecen la pena,y en conjunto no es un mal trabajo,pero ni de lejos un clásico.Por cierto,CHAMPIONS volvió a clavarla... es rollo Streets,que a mí tampoco me gustan. 5/10 run2u69@hotmail.com KEEP ON ROCKIN'!!

From: Wotty Date: August 30, 2004 at 15:17
What a great slab of 80s melodic Hard Rock.Cant Hide Love and Sound Of A Breaking Heart are both superb tracks.....

From: bcasarin Date: December 4, 2004 at 21:56

From: ROCK Date: January 7, 2005 at 15:38
la mejor cancion del album es "Can't Hide Love" y por ahi tambien la balada "Sound of a Breaking Heart" lo demas es mediocre.

From: MikeL Date: January 19, 2005 at 18:14
I don't like this one at all. Just didn't grab me with anything. The initial release is the one for the ages.

From: atte: para rock Date: January 23, 2005 at 19:52
mi estimado, me temo que se te FUE LA LENGUA, ESTE ALBUM ES UNO DE LOS 10 MEJORES DE LA HISTORIA DEL HARD/AOR PROPOSITIVO E INTELIGENTE,te pediria encarecidamente que CUIDARAS MAS TU BOCA!! gracias. bernardito

From: z4roxx Date: January 23, 2005 at 19:59
This cd contais some little pure gems!"can't hide love"is the killer but also"Red line rider"goes to become killer,too.My fave Prophet cd is the last one(Recycled),I love much more it totally but maybe their killer songs are in the first 2 cd's,IMO.

From: StarCity Rocker Date: March 9, 2005 at 7:54
Very smooth & effective mix of AOR and hard rock. This one has a little bit of everything. Instrumental jams ("Hyperspace"), ballads ("Sound Of A Breaking Heart") and uptempo rockers ("Can't Hide Love" & "Frontline"). I can't think of a single weak track on here. Highly recommended.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 26, 2005 at 1:24
Yes Good AOR release, claro un buen album de AOR no para tacharlo de joya o grandioso pero esta muy bueno, a diferencia del primero que era mas pomposo y algo progresivo, en cortes Sound of a Breaking Heart y Can't Hide Love(los cortes), Frontline, Hands of Time, Asylum, Red Line Rider un buen album con gran cantidad de buenos cortes, otro disco que sin duda IMO no puede faltar en tu coleccion amante del AOR. Long Life AOR carajo.

From: Lovedrive Date: August 5, 2005 at 8:21
A mi no me ha parecido gran cosa.. que se le va a hacer!

From: tocallo1 Date: September 30, 2006 at 16:23
para bernardito. No creo que este album este entre los 10 primeros, Hay una gran variedad de discos que estan mucho mejor que este, ejemplos: SHY excess all areas,ALIEN alien,STRANGEWAYS 1,2 y 3 ,TNT intuition,FM indiscreet y Tough it out, y algunos de Survivor y journey, son mejores que prophet.

From: picha Date: June 29, 2007 at 17:54
si verdaderamente para mí existen discos que llevarse a una isla desierta,este uno de ellos sin duda,es maravilloso escuchar esos teclados y esas tres joyas de canciones que son can hy love,hands of time y la balada sound of breakin heart.impresionantes los temas ,los coros,todo,todo,escuchalo con los auriculares y entrarás en otra dimension.joya del aor por anyonomasia. .

From: lalorock Date: June 30, 2007 at 17:22
Disco bueno, no un clásico para mí,pero tiene sus buenas canciones;creo que coincido con la mayoría sus mejores temas son Can´t hide love,Sound of a breaking heart esto demuestra que este grupo su fuerte son las melodías enganchosas y baladas con gran sentimiento,8/10

From: Rycheage Date: September 19, 2007 at 20:28
"Sound Of A Breaking Heart" is a brilliant piece of music as is "Can't Hide Love". That said, the rest is boring, drab AOR. Less on the guitar than the S/T and it shows. It's by the numbers and doesn't show an original thought at all. Russell Arcara for how talented as he is doesn't seem too thrilled to be singing here and it shows. He seems uninterested.

From: kipvanpearcy Date: September 20, 2007 at 8:44
Totally agree with Rycheage here, two brilliant songs, and an average album.

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: September 21, 2007 at 2:11
GOOD CD 80/100 GOOD SONGS Some fillers but the overall impression is always good ,beside some harsh comments if you like AOR you'll envoy it ! good vocals by RUSSEL ARCARA (surgin/the way/ARCARA)who remind me sometimes PAUL STANLEY / GOOD PRODUCTION AND GREAT MUSICIANSHIP BUY IT

From: Aor/HardRock Date: October 25, 2007 at 12:27
buen album de AOR, no tan bueno como otros grupos de AOR, pero tiene un tema que me encanta "Sound of a Breaking Heart" vaya que tema , claro que si , con sus toques magicos de teclado..9/10.

From: BDrums1971 Date: December 2, 2009 at 2:10
Wow, I don't know what you guys are listening to, but this is superb! Good songs, writing, playing and singing. What more could you ask for? I LOVE it! Nice mix of guitar and keys, and I really like this singer. 9/10.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 7, 2011 at 20:54
Their 3 releases are more or less in the same line musically talking(perhaps their debut has some Pomp AOR touches here and there)and that makes the 3 of them likeable ones indeed!!!...my favourite one has to be "Hands Of Time" but some others such as "Can't Hide Love","Sound Of A Breaking Heart","Asylum" & "Frontline"( song with a bass line courtesy of Mr Scott Metaxas)are gonna put a smile in your face 4 sure....recommended album...87/100

From: the rocker Date: December 11, 2011 at 17:55
Saw these guys back in the day in a small club in Providence R.I. called (The Living Room), I think they opened for Leatherwolf!!! This is not bad, The Sound Of A Breaking Heart, & Can't Hide Love are awesome!
