Good one, better than their previous releases. But still not at their peak of the first releases !

As AOR Freaky states,this disc is superior to Firehouse's releases from the last few years, but not QUITE in the same league as their debut, and follow-up efforts.Still, if you've ever been a fan of the group, I'd say you'll enjoy this disc. "Perfect Lie" (which has a STRONG resemblance to "All She Wrote" ),and "Body Language" are my faves, but I found the entire disc quite enjoyable. Well worth grabbing in my opinion.

From: firefan Date: January 25, 2004 at 0:40
Guitarist, Bill Leverty, has his 1st solo album ready. There are sound clips on "The Tunes" page at www.wanderlustband.com. More info on his other site at www.leverty.com. The clips sound great. Can't wait to hear the whole disc.

From: rock_dawg1 Date: January 28, 2004 at 5:55
Amazing album, a much better release then the band's 2000 disc O2. Prime Time is more a step in the direction of their self titled debut and Hold Your Fire and in my opinion is their best release in 10 years. You can never beat the album(s) that made you famous but Firehouse prove they can still rock with the best of them and they are not afraid to show it. Recommended to all fans of Firehouse or anyone who likes guitar driven straight forward rock 'n roll.

Disco muy buenos de estos genios que recuerda a su primera epoca.Si alguien quiere cambiar CD que escriba a pardao27@hotmail.com

From: vikingo Date: February 19, 2004 at 12:50
buen disco mas rockero pero no esta a la altura de sus 2 primeros discos, la cancion de "door to door" recuerda bastante a la buena epoca de judas priest.

From: Rycheage Date: February 22, 2004 at 17:29
What a great revival the band has given themselves. Absolute stunning cd. Modern approach yet always Firehouse written all over the songs. This has to appeal to all old and young rock fans out there. So an absolute must have for Firehouse fans and a perfect try for the new fans to get to know these guys. Harkens back to the glory days. Excellent.

From: Erik Date: March 27, 2004 at 9:52
Great to see you guys back ! They finally found to their old form again. Excellent album !!!!

From: Surya Date: April 1, 2004 at 10:05
Great album, especially the song "Crash", full of power song."Perfect Lie" sure is another favorite track from this album,"Let Go" emotional song, positive lyric, this one also sounds good.Totally I enjoy this album so much.GREAT album!!!

From: Blue Tequila Date: April 1, 2004 at 10:38
This is what Category 5 should have sounded like. Unfortunately it took the band over 10 years to figure that out. But they have done just that with Prime Time. As the above comments state they do return to their roots, and no it's not as good as their first 2 releases but it does have that classic Firehouse vibe that you would expect them to be making and not this mellow college pop they had put out on their previous 2 albums. Quite enjoyable, I give it a 7.8/10. Keep it up guys!

From: marc Date: August 1, 2004 at 5:03
just got back from a live firehouse show in charlotte,nc.it was 1 of the best rock shows i've seen in quite some time.if the new songs sound as good on the cd,as they did live then i thank u will love the cd.

Cualquier verdadero conocedor de la música Metal y Hard Rock, tal vez se resigne a solo obtener buena música de discos editados en los ochenta y principios de los ´90. Personalmente cuando veo que la fecha de grabación pasa el año 1993, ya lo tomo con pinzas. Últimamente el Hard Rock está tomando el respeto que se merece por lo logrado en “aquellos” tiempos, con bandas como Motley Crue con “New Tattoo” y Thunder con “Shooting At The Sun” por poner solo ejemplos.

From: Lucas Date: August 2, 2004 at 15:43
Nos damos cuenta que la gente ya se cansó de escuchar música deprimida, se hartó de lo tenebroso y quiere fiesta de vuelta. Firehouse acaba de lanzar un fabuloso disco titulado “Prime Time”, y lleva al Hard Rock a un nuevo nivel. “Prime Time”, su octavo álbum, definitivamente está muy bien producido. Bill Leverty, guitarrista y productor del mismo, no cabe duda que es un virtuoso de la composición. Cj Snare canta igual que si tuviera la misma edad que hace 15 años atrás.

From: Lucas Date: August 2, 2004 at 15:44
Temas como “Prime Time” “Body Language” y “Home Tonight”, son nuevas perlas que a cualquiera que le guste este estilo va a saber disfrutar, incluso la balada “Let Go” muestra una ya conocida faceta de este majestuoso grupo. La verdad es que no me esperaba nada menos de Firehouse, y no me defraudaron, y creo que hay mucho más Hard Rock, gracias a este tipo de bandas, por muchos años mas. lhgordo@yahoo.com

What a bunch of crap.

From: Jack's Mom Date: August 13, 2004 at 11:15
Jack is of course referring to 'everthing he has ever said & done...'

From: Blaze Date: September 4, 2004 at 16:56
It's really their best album... No bad songs on it. GREAT!!! (I think the Let go is the best ballad of the band)

From: Geoff Date: September 5, 2004 at 2:58
Easily their best CD since 'Hold you fire', this is a good one. I wish CJ was on vocals for all tracks and I'd have liked a few more gems, but for me 'Perfect lie' is just one of the best songs they ever recorded and well worth this whole affair alone. This is a good solid CD though.

From: Chad Date: September 6, 2004 at 0:34
I agree that Perfect Lie is one of their best songs that they have recorded. I feel that the debut and Hold Your Fire are better albums but for the 2000's this is a stellar release. I have met the band several times and all class acts. Door to Door is a great song. NASCAR fans will rejoice when they hear it! Bill Leverty and CJ Snare are true professionals. Keep making this type of music guys! Recommended!

From: jercar171 Date: October 30, 2004 at 23:55
love the cd it rocks just dont care for the songs sung by the guitar an drummer really it takes away from the cd when cj should be singing more songs but all in all the cd rocks hard except 3 songs by leevrty , an foster they need to stick to guitar an drums or just do solo stuff but not on firehouse

From: Hairball John Date: November 26, 2004 at 21:15
There are audio interviews conducted with both CJ and Bill Leverty for The Hairball John Radio Show available for your listening pleasure www.hairballjohn.com Check out The Hairball John Radio show every week at www.hairballjohn.com for many of the lost classics and new kick ass tunes. The Hairball John Radio Show the past is back to kick your ass!

From: Nick C Date: April 18, 2005 at 16:36
I think that the band turned a corner on O2 and stopped the rot that was setting in right there and then. This is the fruit of the seeds that were planted with the O2 release. This album really rocks and has some immense songs on especially Perfect Lie with it's kicking riff and twiddly keyboard bits in the background, whilst the title track has a kind of Aerosmith sass. The more I listen to it the more I enjoy it. A return to form IMHO.

From: ROBERT Date: May 5, 2005 at 10:40
tb el Sabado me voy pa los Madriles A VERLOS... Tampoco me los pierdo!! ¿Quien mas va a ir D POR AKI?

From: RattnRoll Date: May 21, 2005 at 5:58
Good and solid album. Like the song "Holding on" which features Leverty singing and the man can sing!

From: metalguf Date: February 27, 2006 at 8:28
This is not good at all. It is all too heavy. Firehouse should make more Power ballads like in the old days, instead for heavy music. It sound very modern rock style in my opinion. If you like Firehouse in the good old days, then don't spend your money on this CRAP!!!

From: juan carlos Date: April 18, 2006 at 16:50
a ver.. "prime time" como primer tema, toques "modernos", paso. "crash" potente, a lo AC/DC, buen tema. "door to door" tremendo tema con un final de fiesta y un gran solo, matador!. "perfect lie" buen tema, recuerda a los Firehouse de antaño. La 5 y 6 personalmente no me gustan, los riffs suenan a lo Pantera. la 7 me parece insulso. la 8 y 9 están regulares. "let go" la única balada que cierra de manera digna este irregular disco. 7/10

From: 7Sinner Date: July 17, 2006 at 11:06
Damn fine hard rock release. Who cares if its as good as their first 2 releases. They came out a long time ago. If you're into hard rock this is a definite buy....

From: CHESSBOARDER Date: November 1, 2006 at 13:48
Fine Album, but where are the beautiful Ballads ??? AND WHERE IS THE NEXT ALBUM? This is from 2003 and we get near 2007? Is Firehouse still alive??? Where r u?

From: the rocker Date: December 13, 2006 at 13:58
i like this better than the last one. but i still like the last one.really could do without the other members singing. perfect lie is classic firehouse.

From: mannas Date: November 16, 2007 at 2:53
sagen wir es mal so,wer die beiden ersten alben zum vergleich nimmt,wird enttäüscht sein,klingt doch alles sehr experimentierfreudig!kein richtig gutes melodic rock album!65/100 coolmohr@web.de

From: Remastered Reason Date: December 21, 2007 at 23:55
"Perfect Lie". All you need to know. Great lyrics & a killer tune.

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 6, 2010 at 7:46
While not matching the tremendously high quality of their first pair of albums, the band once again found their fire--and their balls--with this release, trading in the mellow for the muscular. The only real misstep here was allowing other band members to sing some of the tracks; when you have one of the best and most easily recognizeable hard rock/metal vocalists fronting your group, why would you let anyone else near the microphone? Leverty shouldn't be permitted to sing in the shower at his own house, let alone on a Firehouse CD (actually, he's not THAT bad, but he's certainly no CJ Snare). Anyway, the band is long past their prime by now, but at least this time they brought the rock.

From: hair metal again Date: October 14, 2010 at 0:55
excellent release by hair metal giants FIREHOUSE ,which shows again their ability in writing good rockin songs.the band seems in perfect condition and the production is good but i would like it more alive.there are no fillers here and my fav are "perfect lie","door to door" and "crash".simply put this is another great one

From: andi Date: March 1, 2014 at 6:25
What happened to this guys.....this album is already back 10 years....do they have no new ideas???i´m very DISAPPOINTED!!!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: March 1, 2014 at 9:51
They've probably watched most of their contemporaries try--and fail--to release new music that actually captures folks' attention. To go through all the work of making a new album just to have it barely make a ripple, either in sales or in the minds of the fans, I guess they, like a lot of others, have decided to just be a nostalgia act anymore, playing the hits at casinos and state fairs.
