France's Axe Killer labels latest re-issue is the House of Lords first album (CD). This has always been one of my favorite albums, and I was eager to hear the "new and improved" version. A bit of background, House Of Lords was formed out of the group "Giuffria"(who released 2 albums, the 1984 self-titled, and the 1986 Silk + Steel). Greg Giuffria (keyboards), Lanny Cordola (guitar), Chuck Wright (bass- who played on the first G. album) and new members, drummer Ken Mary, and vocalist James Christian (who exec producer and label owner Gene Simmons had recommended).The two later releases from this group featured various band members (between the two Giuffria albums, and the three HOL albums, there was never the same line-up twice)! A few songs on this album (Pleasure Palace, Slip of the Tongue, Under Blue Skies, and Jealous Heart) were written during the Giuffria time period, with then vocalist David Glen Isley sharing the writing credit. If you have always had this album, as I have (which originally came out on CD, Cassette, *and* vinyl in 1988 on now-defunct Simmons label) there are no surprises. If not, you missed a classic and now is your chance. The album is a heavy keyboard driven (with a great extended keyboard based intro. to the first track, Pleasure Palace), yet with the guitar parts blending and countering perfectly. The songs range from the heavier side (Pleasure Palace, Slip of the Tongue, Hearts of the World) to upbeat melodic rockers (I Wanna Be Loved, Lookin' for Strange, Under Blue Skies, Call My Name) to a heavy/power-ballad style where the band really achieves their own sound (Edge Of Your Life, Love Don't Lie, Jealous Heart). A bonus is the 1 minute acoustic guitar piece by Lanny Cordola prior to the last track, Jealous Heart.Read more ›

Whew!! This CD simply grabs you and won't let go! I had purchased this CD several years back on the RCA label. I was pleased to learn that AxeKiller had recently re-mastered this epic of late 80s Pomp. Axekiller has improved the quality of this recording considerably. Also, the CD slip cover scores points as well - nicely done packaging!
From "Pleasure Palace" through to "Jealous Heart" this release is strong and will not disappoint.
The opener, "Pleasure Palace", showcases the keyboard mastery of Gregg Giuffria - one of the most creative players in the rock business. The entire band executes this number perfectly.
James Christian and Lanny Cordola deliver scorching performances on "Jealous Heart", a track co-written by Giuffria/Eisley. This track is high on emotion and really hits hard. After a few listens you may well concede it to be the finest song on this release.
Yes, this is truly what rock was meant to be. Just think how great rock music would be today if 80s metal was not "intentionally killed" by record companies and disgusting (can you say "baggy"?) 90s fashion and mentality.

One of the best pop-metal albums of the late Eighties, this offering was largely overlooked by both fans and critics alike. Heavily influenced by keyboard rhythms and classical/metal style solos, this album offers a more progressive type of pop-metal. Cuts such as "Jealous Heart, "Edge Of Your Life", "Under Blue Skies", and "Pleasure Palace" set the overall mood of this debut CD from House Of Lords. This disc actually offers a higher quality of musicianship than many of the other more well known "where are they now" bands offered in the late Eighties. "House Of Lords" is an album containing a little more substance than just "T & A tunes" (although "Slip Of The Tongue" is an exception), and tries a little harder to refine its artistic edge. Definitely worth a listen if you enjoyed the style that the Eighties offered, yet don't want just radio metal, this disc displays a more refined and coordinated style of writing than many of the other albums released around the same time. Produced by Kiss' Gene Simmons.

House of Lords was a terrific band back then in the hair metal era. This first album from the band is surely very consistent from its beginning to its end. Extremely high quality music! I can say that the three albums the band recorded in those years are the pinnacle of Gregg Giuffria music and some of the best music of that decade. Greg was Angel's keyboard player in the past and after that he tried another time with a band called Giuffria to reach another huge commercial success and high level of music quality. But he had to wait until House Of Lords were born to obtain another time what he deserved. This music is epic, melodic, powerful hair metal, some of the best music of the period for sure. The sound of the band had great impact. The fusion between nice keyboard sounds and heavy distorted sounds generated an extraordinary powerful amalgama in the hands of these men. James Christian voice was superlative in the category and the songwriting consitently high on all the original three albums (this one, Sahara and Demons down). I treasure the three albums fron the band I was fortunate enough to have bought them at that time. Now they are unavailable unfortunatly. If you find them and you like fantastic energetic, high quality hair metal, buy them immediatly.
