The Best of Prism




This compilation includes the band's best-known hit, 1981's "Don't Let Him Know" (co-written by Bryan Adams), and showcases the rest of their modest collection, which is mostly spirited attempts at a bland genre of music: watered-down synth rock. Call them art-rock lite, or hard adult contemporary. A hybrid of Sweet, Styx and the Little River Band, Prism goes for space-oddity flavor with lines like "On Mercury they're crazy about my stellar rock and roll, and I always seem to sell out at the Martian astrobowl" (from "Spaceship Superstar") and "The planet dies and no one cries" (from "Take Me to the Kaptin"). And oddest of them all, "Armageddon's" drum intro sounds quite similar to Metallica's intro to "Am I Evil?" (recorded several years later). Eerie.
