Released back when there was always two sides to every audio story (i.e., side one and side two), Giuffria's second offering houses an interesting concept: polarizing the huffy from the heavy. This is hardly a revolutionary idea, as such was the common format of most AOR at the time, and perhaps for the sake of balance some silk slips into the steel and vice versa, so the record ultimately ends up heavy on the light. The titular titan's bombastic keyboards float like angel feathers amongst David Glen Eisley's lung-busting vocals (Eisley even scats with axeman Lanny Cordola right out of the gate on "No Escape")…

Keyboard maestro Gregg Giuffria originally planned to retain the Angel title for his second high-profile cinematic rock show, but the scalding ivories soaring throughout this record prove he's fully in charge, making the Giuffria moniker an apt band name. The long, blond angel always kicks off his projects with some cool keys, and the pulsing prelude to "Do Me Right" overpowers the rest of the song; like much of the album, this track devolves into a standard hair cut with symphonic trappings…

The voice of Guiffria. Giuffria has released two records with this singer, before Gregg Giuffria left the band and creates House Of Lords. Stranger From The Past, David Glen Eisley's solo album, is a truly rock record. From first to third track, Eisley's songs is full of melody and with fast rock songs compare to the whole record (we are speaking of soft hard rock "à la" Night Ranger).

Anthology is a compilation of rare demos and live recordings by House of Lords, released on October 14, 2008. Begun as one of Gene Simmons pet projects for the record label bearing his name, House Of Lords (originally known as Giuffria) has been producing what has become known as AOR/melodic rock for over 20 years. The House Of Lords trademark sound combines the swagger of late '80s Whitesnake with the mystical power of Tony Martin-era Black Sabbath, and now the Lords' solid catalog gets a retrospective treatment with a well-deserved Anthology.

CAPTIVE HEART was a pure American AOR Melodic Rock band from Chicago, one of the many that arrived too late into the scene but deserved the stardom. They recorded this bunch of songs in 1991-92 to land a U.S. deal. Luckily a German label released the tapes in 1996 as "Home Of The Brave", and what an impressive material it is. Much in the style of James Christian (Giuffria, House Of Lords), a la Drive She Said with hints of House Of Lords and Storming Heaven. Jim Peterik (Survivor, Pride Of Lions) also lent his extensive songwriting skills to some of the fabulous tunes.

World Upside Down is the fifth studio album (second since the reunion), by House of Lords, released on May 23, 2006. The album features founding member James Christian once again with an all-new line-up, as he is the only one of the original members left on the line-up. Still, founding member Gregg Giuffria, who was not reunited with the original line-up for the 2004 album The Power and the Myth, is featured on the album as a guest keyboardist. Collaborator and producer Jeff Kent played bass and keyboards on the album, as the band was without a bassist at the time.

The Power and the Myth is the fourth studio album and the first since the reunion, by House of Lords, released on August 3, 2004. The album marks the return of original members Chuck Wright, Lanny Cordola and Ken Mary, but is the first not to feature keyboardist, main songwriter and founding member Gregg Giuffria. Then Mr. Big drummer Pat Torpey co-wrote many of the songs on the album.
