Album Review

When House of Lords originally arrived in 1988, the group's leader was keyboardist Gregg Giuffria. The group didn't last long however, but when they decided to reunite in the early 21st century, their aforementioned leader was no longer part of the lineup. But upon the arrival of 2006's World Upside Down, Giuffria's name was back in the credits, however, not as a full-on band member, but rather as a contributor of "keyboard productions." What exactly contributing "keyboard productions" is, who knows? — maybe it'll let hardcore Giuffria fans sleep a little more soundly at night knowing that their hero is involved in some capacity once more. Musically, World Upside Down screams '80s-era commercial rock right off the bat, the album-opening "These Are the Times" would have sounded absolutely fantastic in an '80s teen flick, as would have "Million Miles" and "Your Eyes." Fans of Journey and Survivor should be able to relate to the musical goings on here.

Customer Reviews

Another great Rock Band the world needs to know about

House of Lords debut album is one the classic rock albums of the 80's. James Christian along with Steve Overland, Steve Perry, Lou Gramm, Jimi Jamison and Bruce Springsteen possesses one of the finest voices in rock. These Are The Time, All The Way to Heaven, SOS is what rock music is all about; great hooks and top notch lyrics. Million Miles and Your Eyes are the best songs on the album. Check out James solo work and The HOL Anthology.

This is much more like the HoL of old - their "1st" new release (Power and the Myth) I think tried to be too progressive (and dare I say too Dream Theater-like) but this newer one is just like their older stuff from the early '90's - proper old-fashioned "melodic rock" for want of a better term. Any fans of the older stuff (which would be good to find on iTunes too, hint hint) should go straight to this one and skip P&TM in my opinion.

Years Active: '80s

House of Lords' foundations lay in Giuffria, a melodic rock band led by titular keyboardist Gregg Giuffria, best known for their Top 30 hit "Call to the Heart." After being dropped by MCA following the failure of its second album, Silk and Steel, the band started demoing songs for a tentative third album. While shopping for a new deal, the band caught the attention of Gene Simmons, who happened to be starting his own label at the time, Simmons Records. The famous bassist enjoyed what he heard, but...
