Prong Continues To Build On...4.5 stars

"Prong improved greatly from the still impressive FORCE FED to the great thrash of BEG TO DIFFER. When PROVE YOU WRONG was released, one thing was clear...Prong was still on to something great. Over the course of WRONG's 13 songs, Prong pack a concise punch with their simplistic but strong riffs courtesy of Tommy Victor, excellent bassplaying from Troy Gregory, and the phenomenal drumming of Ted Parsons.
The title track and "Unconditional" are some of the best material Prong has churned out, and over the course of the album, "Torn Between", "No Way To Deny It", and "Pointless" are immensely satisfying, intense bursts of hardcore metal. Prong can play with fierce devotion, but never to the point of self-parody like some of their contemporaries might have done.
PROVE YOU WRONG is another bold step for Prong, another important album in their impressive catalog. You can't go wrong with the songs found here, and Prong would only get better with their subsequent releases CLEANSING and RUDE AWAKENING. No Prong completist should be without PROVE YOU WRONG."

"Where 'Beg to differ' had a straight forward and polished sound, this disc is more adventurous. A coupe of slow tracks as well.
They were going for something different and it works! The title track and 'Irrelevant Thoughts' feature some really unique structuring, to the almost funky 'Unconditional', the soothingly slow 'Contradictions', and Older School style of 'Positively Blind' , 'Torn Between' and the CDs best track 'Shouldnt Have Bothered'.. It all comes together and is probably Prongs most diverse disc.
Nonetheless, it is really great stuff... Intriguing."
