I've known Lance King for many years since his Gemini days. He's outdone himself on this cd!!! I heard the first Balance of Power cd without Lance on vocals. The music rocked, but the vocalist sucked major ass. Lance is a much needed voice for a band this caliber and with this talant. Awesome guitars and melodies, great lyrics and hooks. The entire cd rocks! Very similar to Queensryche and Dream Theater. Check out Lance's other bands Gemini and The Kings Machine too.

This CD is top notch. The songs absolutely rock from beginning to end but especially the title track. Lance King is a welcome breath of fresh air. His vocals are temendous!! Highly recommend this disc.

From: chris c Date: November 15, 2001 at 12:45
Great CD from a Great band. Any fans of Dream Theater and Queensryche will enjoy this CD. Great vocals and production!

From: DRAGONFLY Date: December 11, 2001 at 16:38
I agree that this a great cd. With some members from "Vandamne" it totally rocks. BALANCE OF POWER blows Queensryche and Dream Theater out of the water to the max!!!!

ok people..i now know it IS possible to CLONE humans!! b.o.p. is living proof! they equal if not surpass groups we all compair them to..queensryche and dream theater. kings voice is that of j labrie on images/words,very clean,not harsh and raunchy like dt last few cd's. drums are very tight,obviously a mike portnoy student. the whole cd rocks hard and clean! in the famous words of mike portnoy(dt)..its balls and chunk guys!!ezed isnt ezly wowedby bands these days..but..WOW!! u MUST get it !!!!

Their new cd Perfect Balance is killer. It even tops this one.

Why does the Giant album III have the exact same picture on the cover (apart from Giant have a small statue at the very front)? Anyone else noticed that? Check it out on the Giant page. Chuck Wright the bass player from House of Lords did the Giant cover. I wonder who did this one? and I wonder if he's seen the Giant cover? This one is from two years before the Giant one as well.

Balance of Power have announced that they have parted company with vocalist Lance King. The band has since engaged a new and internationally known lead singer and when the legal details are finalised a further press release will be issued. Details will also be given regarding the band's new record label in the USA once contracts are signed.

Just got this one too.I can't say they are better than Queensryche but none the less pretty awesome.you won't be disappointed.Great melodies and harmonies.

From: juan carlos Date: March 18, 2007 at 9:36
No tan bueno como el "Book of secrets" y es más progresivo para mi gusto, buenos cambios, melodías y excelente producción, ciertamente comparables a unos Dream Theater o Queensrÿche. "Under the Spell" es un gran tema y mi favorita del album. Buen disco. 8/10

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: October 13, 2007 at 2:45
GOOD CD 89/100 GOOD MELODIC HEAVY METAL with a positive message ! LANCE KING is very good as the others members especially the two guitar players ! GREAT STUFF like GLENNMORE/SANVOISEN/SIAM or an EUROPEAN version of QUEENSRYCHE buy it /°/ NOW !!!

From: Rycheage Date: October 13, 2007 at 11:17
Fantastic hard rock album with the incomparable Lance King on vocals. If you like hard rock then this is for you. Make no mistake, this totally rocks from beginning to end. The title track, "Day Breaker" and "Prisoner Of Pride" are awesome. The comparisons to Queensryche are spot on. You will not be disappointed with this.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 28, 2015 at 15:33
Hard Rock with Prog moves and some AOR in it(this is the appropiate adjective to describe this album)...best tracks for me are "Under The Spell","Blind Man","Sins Of The World" & "The Darker Side"(nice)...84/100
