Corazones (English: Hearts) is the fourth album by the Chilean new-wave band Los Prisioneros. First released in 1990, it was produced by Gustavo Santaolalla (with Anibal Kerpel's collaboration) for EMI Odeon Chilena. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered in Los Angeles, California.

The lyrics are not related to the band's usual social criticism, but they took a more romantic, electronic oriented direction, with the support of Cecilia Aguayo on keyboards and Robert Rodríguez on guitars. Also, this was the first record without Claudio Narea (a member of the original line-up) on guitar.

After finishing the promotion tour -which included two performances on the International Music Festival at Viña del Mar (1991)- The band split up and would eventually reunite for a brief period in 2001.

In the US, Corazones was released by Capitol Records.

According to Rolling Stone Chile magazine, "Corazones" stands #9 on the best Chilean album of all times ranking, while "La voz de los 80" stands #3, and "Pateando piedras", #15.
