One of their best records. Happy pop AOR.

From: James Date: May 17, 2004 at 12:53
Since You've Been Gone has to be one of the best POP/AOR songs ever writtne. Good fun band

From: Shoemaker Date: May 18, 2004 at 6:26
Good album sounds like a mix between Rick Springfield and Police.

From: bernardito Date: June 21, 2004 at 1:30
grupo mediocre, a mi NUNCA me convenció 45/100

From: Jordi Date: June 29, 2004 at 12:24
Joder, bernardito; pues a mi me encantan, tio!!! El play deep es genial. Vale que no tienen mucha calidad musical que digamos pero las canciones son geniales.

From: Bernardito Date: December 15, 2004 at 21:17
bien que te gusten pues a mi se me hacen sus canciones sosas y cansinas mejor escucha el 2do disco de prophet (el cycle of the moon)y luego hablamos de calidad entre ambas bandas! saludos desde México , cabrón!!!OUTFIELD=GRUPO DESECHABLE!

From: Chad Date: December 17, 2005 at 22:32
While Play Deep is a better album, this one has the best song recorded by the band in Since You've Been Gone. Another good one by the Outfield. You can't go wrong with this one. Purchase and enjoy.

From: Axe-Machine Date: January 17, 2006 at 16:42
This album is definately a grower. Originally I thought there were only a couple of standout tunes, but upon closer inspection I have to say that every AOR fan needs this album. Guitar driven straight ahead AOR featuring brilliant tracks such as Somewhere In America, Bangin On My Heart, Moving Target and Playground. Hate the artwork, but the music inside is well worth investigation! Reccomended.

Although I liked their debut better, this is still an excellent follow-up. They carry on with the same great sound.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: June 29, 2007 at 19:32
ACEPTABLE. Sin llegar a la frescura y genialidad del PLAY DEEP, aqui THE OUTFIELD

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: June 29, 2007 at 19:39
ACEPTABLE. Sin llegar a la frescura y genialidad del PLAY DEEP, aqui THE OUTFIELD consiguen realizar un buen disco, a secas. Se sigue manteniendo el estilo del primero en temas como: "Bangin´ Out My Heart" (a lo PLAY DEEP). Destaca tambien la bella balada "Alone With You" y por supuesto la sensacional "Since You´ve Been Gone", que es, claramente, uno de sus mejores temas

From: Japangea Date: September 18, 2008 at 4:00
To me,this album is very Night Ranger-Damn Yankees-ish.Singer reminds me both Tommy Shaw and Sting from Police.A fine release.

From: osborn.kier Date: October 22, 2008 at 10:57
It's a great AOR Album.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 24, 2015 at 18:06
Ummm for me this is quite a step down after the very pleasant debut...then on the 3rd album the band recaptured the magic lost in here(a matter of tastes)..."No Surrender","Better Than Nothing" & "Since You've Been Gone" are the only songs that caught my attention...60/100

From: hair metal again Date: December 5, 2016 at 3:05
very good release this one ,with OUTFIELD offering great harmonies with a stellar production!the musicianship is top notch and after a few spins you ll be hooked with their quality !"somewhere in America",'bangin on my heart"& "better than nothing" are the highlights of this recommended hard rock release

From: titothetitan Date: August 8, 2018 at 13:51
In their 'Best Of' album, there's an alternate version of 'Somewhere in America' and a acoustic version of 'Alone With You'
