From: AOR freaky Date: August 4, 2005 at 14:16
Seen by many as a 'semi-classic' in the AOR genre ! But . . ., it ain't !!!!! It's as far removed from a classic as our earht is removed from the tenth planet ! The songs are boring, the singing so-so and the production is to bad (muddy) for words. The eighties were the AOR years, with plenty of great AOR releases, but this one is not among them !!!

From: Kim HP Date: August 18, 2005 at 8:23
I'm afraid I don't agree with AOR freaky. This is in my opinion, an awesome classic AOR album with strong vocals, plenty of keys and catchy choruses. Maybe the production isn't top-notch but the quality of the song material does make up for it. Tracks like "Heartzone", "Dora", "Freeway Ride" and "Top Secret" are great AOR songs. "With You" is a strong ballad. All in all, great stuff and a good addition to any AOR collection. Unfortunately only available on CD on the bootleg label JRR.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 2, 2005 at 1:03
For me is a CLASSIC too, Good AOR album, no quiero entrar en discusiones con la gente de habla inglesa pero este disco es un CLASICO y PUNTO, es un disco con ese sonido misterioso legendario e inconfundible de los 80 el tipo de AOR que planteaban bandas como Virginia Wolf o Urgent(USA first album) por poner 2 ejemplos(claro que no a la altura de estos pero tiene cortes a ese estilo) de bandas con ese sonido particular(que son pocas, el tipo de teclados guitarras y esa atmosfera inconfundible...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 2, 2005 at 1:09
(pensar que Trent Reznor esta aca, a menos que sea otro jaja) esos cortes con esa atmosfera a la que me refiero se ven reflejados en Freeway Ride, Heartzone, Love'll Come Knockin', Top Secret lo mejor del album IMO, quiza a otros no llame la atencion este album pero es mi gusto personal, sin duda el 89 fue el año de mayor cantidad de grandes albums...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 2, 2005 at 1:20
pero tengo una Trilogia que no la cambio por nada 84-85-86 años en que salieron los album mas LEGENDARIOS y con la ATMOSFERA UNICA e INCONFUNDIBLE de la DECADA INCOMPARABLE que fueron y seguiran siendo los 80's, esos años son la ESCENCIA de los INMORTALES 80's.

From: caritosmatanza Date: January 31, 2006 at 21:15
trent reznooor? debo haber leído mal, será un clon. Sólo he escuchado dos temas del disco y eran bastante buenos, la verdad.Pero prefiero escucharlo enterito antes de hacerme una idea. De todos modos, por lo oído,suenan geniales.estooo...trent reznoooor?.No, no es posible. A lo mejor el chico tiene buen gusto y sólo está pasando ahora un sarampión.SErá.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: July 16, 2007 at 22:29
Pues no han leído mal... en efecto, se trata de Trent Reznor, el mismo de NINE INCH NAILS, según la información sobre la banda, solamente duró unos meses ahí en THE INNOCENT, me parece que previamente había estado en una banda llamada OPTION 30.

From: juan carlos Date: July 16, 2007 at 23:49
Pues como que para Trent Reznor The Innocent núnca existió en su historial ya que núnca lo ha mencionado en ninguna entrevista ni en su biografía, vaya a saber el porque, pero prefiero a The Innocent que a Trent Reznor de lejos. Option 30 sí y otros proyectos mas pero The Innocent? ni en pelea de gatos.. Saludos.

Decent album and of great invoice, An album Generally of pure AOR That gives taste to listen to it to every moment.

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: May 10, 2009 at 3:21
good CD PURE EARLY 80's AOR/HI-TECH KEY POP 82/100 it's not a CLASSIC but it's always a great pleasure to be immersed in the heart of the 80's ! Even if sometimes some KEY sounds are very dated or cheesy, it's a very good time capsule !

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 7, 2010 at 20:24
Ok this is a decent AOR album with good songs but nothing extraordinaire,good tracks,enjoyable somehow but that's about all...Trent Reznor...yes,the man behind the mega industrial rock band NIN played here!.quite hard 2 believe..my faves songs were "Dora","Heartzone"(probably a highlight),"Top Secret","Love'll Come Knockin'"(very good song,highlight)"...another interesting tracks are the semi ballad "With You" and "Back In My Life" with a really catchy chorus...86/100

From: AOR-Crazy Date: July 20, 2011 at 5:06
AOR freaky, shut up will ya... this album isn't the best of the best but it's very good. Just because you don't like it (i don't know how should one AOR album sound for you to like it) doesn't mean you can spit on it. I give it 90/100 and yes, Trent Reznor did a great job on this album!

From: MrMetal Date: January 24, 2016 at 12:32
THE INNOCENT (not to be confused with the Connecticut band) were formed by Rodney Pyska (ex-DREAMSTREET), Alan Greenblatt, & Kevin Valentine (ex-DONNIE IRIS AND THE CRUISERS, ex-SHADOW KING, ex-NEVERLAND, ex-THE GODZ, ex-DEWEY, ex-GRAHAM BONNET + others)in the Cleveland, Ohio area with both Albritton McClain (ex-DONNIE IRIS AND THE CRUISERS) & Gary Jones joining shortly thereafter. The act was formed out of the ashes of BREATHLESS & Jones was replaced by Trent Reznor after the recording of this album (with Trent only sticking around for approximately 3 months). This made them somewhat of a "supergroup" with a style comparable to TOTO, STARSHIP, DREAMSTREET, SURVIVOR, FOREIGNER, FORTUNE, & SUGARCREEK. Most songs were written from the band aside from "With You", which was written by both notables (Jay Gruska & Austin Roberts). They toured extensively after the album and would release 2 more Singles in 1989 ("The Only Answer / Extraordinary Day" & "Don't Steal my Heart Away / Concrete

Jungle")but would disband sometime afterwards due to label issues. There wasn't a bad song on display here, with Rodney having a Mickey Thomas-vibe to his voice (the song "Love'll Come Knockin'" was the epitome of 80's High-Tech AOR standards). This album has been bootlegged a handful of times with some of the songs also in different running orders on some versions. I don't believe that Trent Reznor had anything to do with the recording here, but I could be wrong.
