From: Rob Date: October 10, 2001 at 10:55
'Call To The Heart' is one of my all time favorite ballads.

From: Kitty kat Date: November 5, 2001 at 3:43
I agree 'Call to the Heart' is awesome , I love this album ....it's so high energy and uplifting !

From: koogles Date: January 2, 2002 at 15:30
'Call to the Heart' would have been right at home on any 80's Journey album. IT'S THAT GOOD! 'Lonely in Love' is another standout ballad. Unfortunately, the uptempo tracks can't match the quality of the slow stuff and the CD suffers from uneven-ness as a result. 'Silk and Steel', the follow-up, enjoys greater consistency. Still, if you love all things Steve Perry, this Giuffria debut MUST be part of your bedroom furniture!

From: ThunderDan Date: June 13, 2002 at 22:15
Overall, I think this is a great album. I'm not crazy about the last few tracks. I can't even pick a favorite song. Much better album than the follow-up.

From: Desslar Date: June 14, 2002 at 5:01
Fluff, fluff, and more fluff. Some decent AOR, but it sure doesn't rock.

From: Hard Date: September 13, 2002 at 23:54
HAHAHA! Call To The Heart a ballad, Rob???????????????? It's a party rock song!

From: joe Date: October 19, 2002 at 22:58
all i got to say is this is the doopest album they did and call to your heart is dope song.he is better as a solo artist than is house of the lords

From: mutha trucka Date: January 19, 2003 at 3:56
i have the video for call to your heart on tape. kind of old looking, but i watch it now and again for the time warp effect. dont have this album, have never heard any other song by this band. thats all i got to say.

From: manos Date: February 28, 2003 at 21:10
This is the definition of AOR. Based on keyboards, this album is the twin brother of Journey's Frontiers. Nice catchy choruses (Dance), progressive uplifting rockers(do me right), and melodic power ballads( call to the heart), a great album of the early 80s.

From: robert Date: March 1, 2003 at 15:36
Muy buen disco, y esa voz a lo JAMES CHRISTIAN total!! Hay temas q se salen, ambos discos son muy buenos...

From: Date: April 20, 2003 at 12:49
Is this band still around?

From: ted Date: May 23, 2003 at 16:18
AOR americano de mediados delos 80 de excelsasmelodíasde teclado y buenas guitarras ,pero por encima de todo destacaría a David Glenn Eisley que canta como un Dios ,an absolutely gem!

From: THE_ROGUE Date: June 5, 2003 at 13:26
I love this album. GREG GIUFFRIA is the master of the keys. CRAIG GOLDY's guitar work is amazing. DAVID GLENN EISLEY's vocals are quite emotive. A great Rock album by a great group of Musicians. If your looking for this you can get the French release at http://www.nehrecords.com/shop/enter.htm for only 12.99 + shipping.

From: Rocker76 Date: June 26, 2003 at 12:00
I agree with those who said 'Call to the Heart' is killer - but 'Lonely in Love' is better. Quintessential power ballad from the 80s! Giuffria rocks!

From: Carlomagno Date: July 26, 2003 at 11:04
Boy was I amazed when I hear the keyboard introduction of the first song. 'Do Me The Right', 'Call To The Heart', 'Lonely In Love' excellent debut and truly a gem. Watch Out for the vocals of Mr. David Glenn!! 95/100

From: John Date: August 13, 2003 at 15:36
The good outweighs the bad here. Unfortunately to my ears the sound has grown dated as time wears on. Someone should remaster this one. 'Lonely In Love' is awesome. Never understood what the hell they were trying to accomplish with 'The Awakening' as that scares the crap out of me whenever it comes up during the shuffle mode of my 400 disc changer.

From: VICROCK Date: August 19, 2003 at 14:19
EXCELLENT, all the aspects are good in this band, the songs, THE SONGS, the musicians, etc, this is another greg is not the angel greg, this is much better than house of lords, or this is house of lords wiht another name. Its the best of greg. David is great.

From: pablo Date: September 6, 2003 at 9:28
Muy buen primer trabajo de este gran combo melódico americano pero lo que vendría despues....

From: BERNY REPLY: Date: September 29, 2003 at 22:14
MY GOOD FRIEND VICROCK: THIS IS A MASTERPIECE CLASSIC, I KNOW, BUT THE FIRST ALBUM OF HOUSE OF LORDS ITS A MASTERPIECE TOO, GREGG GIUFFRIA CHANGED THE GROUP ELEMENTS FOR AN EVOLUTION OF HIS MUSIC AND IDEAS ACCORDING FOR THE NEW TIMES

From: AOR freaky Date: December 8, 2003 at 12:42
Gregg is a keyboardwizard, and here he proves it again (as he did with Angel and House Of Lords). This is indeed fine AOR, on par with House Of Lords, although I rate Angel a bit higher. Another minor point is the voice of David Glen Eisley. Not the best I've heard ! But a good record it is !

From: Mika Date: December 21, 2003 at 4:19
Usually don't like soft stuff, but then again, this really isn't so soft. Actually, can't think of another band quite like these guys, so don't really know how to categorize this (do we need to?). I like the singer and 'Do Me Right' kicks ass! The melodies and song structures are absolutely genius and very different from any mainstream hooks. Also, the production is awesome. Back in the day, all heavy metal fans here in Finland liked this album. I still do, it's one of my favorites.

From: Hair Metal Man Date: February 14, 2004 at 23:31
I thought this was the greates thing back when I was 15 now 20 years later, I happened upon my old cassette and listened to it again. WOW! what did I ever see in this? LOL! Call To The Heart is as I remember it but the rest is just CHEESE. The thing that got me the most is how laughable the vocals are, listening to David Glen Eisley trying to hit some of those notes is painful. Hey, this is just my opinion good and for you to those that like this album.

From: K.K. Poland Date: April 13, 2004 at 3:19
lonely in love is amazing

From: K.K. Poland Date: April 13, 2004 at 3:19
lonely in love is amazing

From: Sean Date: April 21, 2004 at 16:05
Really Great rock album. Classic hard rock. David Glen Eisley is brilliant.

From: BCASARIN(MEX) Date: May 22, 2004 at 20:52
OYE CARLO MAGNO, COMO TE ATREVES A PONERLE A ESTA JOYA 95/100? ESTOY VERDADERAMENTE INDIGNADO...es broma... ya mas calmado te indico que este disco no merece menos de 100/100 ...aclarado

From: rocknroll Date: June 21, 2004 at 16:16
I only know lonely in love. Great song with a very and nice melodic sound. It sounds good

From: Big Papa K Date: June 26, 2004 at 23:45
Wonder why this has the hard rock listing as a genre, as this is easily classified as aor instead. 'Call To The Heart' is classic, but I am not much of a fan of the rest as this sounds very dated. I wish that there was more guitar from Goldy on this album. 5/10

From: TIM (2) Date: July 13, 2004 at 9:32
A fairly strong album, but better was to follow. Some really good ballads on here, but some of up-tempo numbers just don't work. Vocally this is nowhere near the 'Silk + Steel' album either. As mentioned above, this really is very lightweight and almost entirely driven by keys, as a result sounding pretty dated. If you only play the first half you have a real quality AOR release... 6.5/10.

From: Jimbo Date: July 20, 2004 at 9:38
I know the name of the band is Giuffria, but seriously, there's WAY too many keyboards which are WAY too predominant in the mix. Craig Goldy is completely wasted on this album and seems to know it as he gives a half-hearted performance throughout. Vocals are sub-par for the genre, songs are tedious and sometimes sound rushed, and nothing gels except the ballads of which there are one too many. Nothing like Angel or H.O.L. Unless you're a Gregg Giuffria nut, avoid this CD like the plague.

From: AOR freaky Date: July 20, 2004 at 15:23
Jimbo, too many keyboards ? ? ? ! Are you joking ?! Are you an AOR or pomp fan ? Definitely NOT ! THE MORE KEYS THE BETTER ! Man, a pure AOR LOVES Keys ! If not, you are not an AOR or pomp fan !!!! It's essential for that typical sound. I think you are a metal fan, my friend, not an AOR fan ! LONG LIVE GREGG, one of the living keyboard wizards !!!!!

From: Scandinavia Date: July 20, 2004 at 19:43
You're right AORFREAKY....This is a VERY, VERY good album!! 9.5/10...The only thing that prevents a clear 10/10 is the wannabe-scary-song 'The Awakening'...

From: Metal Jay Date: August 3, 2004 at 23:52
Saw these guys open for for Rush too many years ago to count. I liked them now and I like them now. 'Call To Your Heart' is a great song.

From: BWH'Indonesia' Date: August 24, 2004 at 8:56
Greg Giuffria rules.Craig Goldy rules. Hear how David screams on 'Turn Me On', great singer.

From: Geoff Date: August 24, 2004 at 22:44
Unfortunately I still only have this one on tape. Would really like the CD as this is some pretty good AOR. Agree with the comments that there are way too many keyboards on display here, but aside from that the songs are pretty cool. Good AOR album but by no means a classic in my mind.

From: Ardian Date: August 25, 2004 at 1:20
BWH Indonesia, maybe you can contact me? I'm a huge AOR fan from Indonesia too just like you. My e-mail is ardiannurcahyo@yahoo.com. Thanks.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 25, 2004 at 5:25
Geoff, are you kidding us again ? ! Too many keyboards on this ? ! Man, you are insulting everyone here by saying this ! A pure AOR or pomp fan can not have enough keys on a disc ! The more the better ! I'm waiting to hear new releases with tons of keys ! And Gregg is a keyboard wizard ! It's once again very clear and simple : you are NOT an AOR fan, sometimes you like someting in that vein. In fact, as said before, you are a pure hardrock freak. Nothing against that, but understand that AOR

From: AOR freaky Date: August 25, 2004 at 5:28
and pomp NEED keys to sound KILLER ! I'm a keyboard fan, anyway !!! It makes the sound so much richer ! Long live keys ! I know the word 'keys' is nasty for a lot of people, but they're in alternative/modern rock, where the use of keys is not done ! Shame !

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 6:09
Yeah, you found me out AOR Freaky. Because I think this and about half a dozen or so other AOR releases have a little too many keyboards in the mix I hate AOR! You got it right! I just hate Bad English, Giant, Signal, and a million other excellent bands who manage to blend keyboards into thier music without making excessive use of them and drowning the music with an electronic sound. Damn me for liking guitars, bass, crisp vocals and drums more! Geoff - you suck! You know nothing! F*ck off!

From: Jez Date: August 26, 2004 at 7:45
Another of my top 20 releases. Bought this the day it came out and still play it regularly now. Difficult for me to highlight any track 'cos i love them all equally. For me, as long as keys are done well(which they are on this) don't mind how many there are.

From: Jonny_B Date: September 1, 2004 at 16:48
I agree with AOR Freaky. There's no such thing as 'too many keyboards.' Great guitarists are a dime a dozen, but how many keyboard masters can you name? Giuffria's S/T debut is the true definition of a keyboard-driven rock album. My favorite track is 'Lonely In Love,' but I also like the dark mood of 'Out of the Blue.' A must for Angel and House of Lords fans....FYI, Gregg Giuffria happens to be one of several great keyboardists that inspired me to pick up the instrument and learn it!

From: Gringo Date: September 3, 2004 at 10:18
Hey Freaky, take a look at the name of this site. It's called HEAVY HARMONIES, NOT AOR HARMONIES or KEYBOARD HARMONIES. All your bitchin' and complaining about what others like or dislike is unfounded as this is a site for anything melodic, NOT just 'pure AOR'. So, do us all a favor and stfu! Nobody appreciates your trashing their comments with your 'expert comments'. Find yourself a 'pure AOR' site, to extoll the virtues of keyboards, but let others like what they like.

From: Wotty Date: September 3, 2004 at 15:04
Hi Gringo,you have your sentiments even if they are a tad aggressive.But the site is Harmonies,which means there must be a sembelence of a tune.I thank you....

From: Gringo Date: September 3, 2004 at 17:10
Wotty, maybe they are a tad aggressive, but the problem is Freak has a tendency to tell people to leave the site if they don't agree with his opinion, however misguided it may be. I agree with your comment about the music having the semblance of a tune, but isn't that possible without overloaded keyboards or keyboards at all? According to Freaky, the answer is no, and that's frankly very short-sighted. And don't forget the word Heavy again. Much heavy metal is also full of harmonies.

From: Wotty Date: September 3, 2004 at 19:36
Hi Gringo.I respect your reply but I am a fan of keyboards myself.In my opinion they are there to augment or lush up the track they are being used on.Heavy or soft you would miss them if they were not there,perhaps a lot more in the soft genre,but why use them on heavier tracks if they didnt brighten the sound,so to speak..There you go,and I didnt slag off anyones taste.I thank you...

From: Jonny_B Date: September 9, 2004 at 17:53
I completely agree with your post, Wotty. I believe that keyboards bring an extra dimension to a rock band that no keyboardless band could ever bring to the table. Imagine Europe 'The Final Countdown' without keyboards. They'd be nothing more than a generic 4-piece rock group with no hits to their name.

From: Rizal Date: November 23, 2004 at 9:37
I'm listening 'Turn Me On'now. Great album, great musician. Softer than House Of Lords, but this is sure a good album. It turns me on.

From: Amaranth Date: December 23, 2004 at 4:59
Buahhahah Jimbo too many keybords??? You're not a pomp rock addicted! 'Giuffria' is an all time classic into the pomp rock genre!

From: Gregg Date: January 17, 2005 at 23:31
Thanks for all the nice comments! I'm grateful! Gregg Giuffria

From: AOR freaky Date: January 18, 2005 at 4:01
The one and only Gregg ? ! Well, great ! We all hope that your new solo CD on Frontiers will be out soon, and that it is in the Angel (Tower !) and Giuffria vein ! So, lots, TONS of bombastic KEYS, Gregg !!!!!! Best !

From: rick kerch Date: February 9, 2005 at 20:19
Just great,that's all i have to say

From: Big Mike Date: February 13, 2005 at 11:20
I do not own this album and have never heard anything at all by giuffria but my psychic abilities tell me that it is a good album to listen too while doing jigsaw puzzles in the nude.

From: Swriter Date: March 22, 2005 at 16:57
loved this one when it came out on album, just got the new rerelease, great stuff!!! Loving both Giuffria and House of Lords, the Giuffria releases are more AOR, especially this first one, I do love James Christian's voice on the HOL's albums, David's voice is fine but the overall vibe and songs of this album are fantastic and melodic heaven, Do Me Right, Call to your Heart, Lonely in Love, Line of Fire, great aor/rock tunes and a must.

From: victordeaor Date: August 16, 2005 at 9:22
Una formación de lujo para un disco de lujo. Buen Hard-AOR americano con gran prominencia de los teclados de Giuffria, y por encima de estos la magnifica voz de David. Para mi los mejores temas son " Do me Riht" con un inicio de teclados espectacular y "Don´t tear me down" Un saludo desde Barna!!!

From: soundtrack.master Date: August 31, 2005 at 14:56
I had the japanese one, very good album, good tunes, good rock classics from arena era, congratulations Mr. Greg.

From: PAUL Date: October 20, 2005 at 11:30
BOW TO GREGG GIUFFRIA!The man is one of the best keyboard players and he has proved it many times, there's no doubd about this!His playing is as always amazing,also Graig's and David's performace is in the same high level.The band offer heavy AOR and powerful songs with great choruses and solos.Not my fav album,but still an excellent work.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 7, 2006 at 22:05
Eso asi me gusta ver muchos comentarios para uno de los grandes del AOR y el Hard Rock ese es el estilo de la banda de este gran teclista la voz de Glen creada exclusivamente para el AOR y las guitarras de Craig de lo mejor que hay ese comienzo y toda la parte de Lonely in Love a duo con Greg son de lo mejor ambos albums no bajan de 9 puntos no hay mas que decir.

From: SangreAzulForever Date: November 17, 2006 at 7:19
Oh!! For God´s sake!! Brilliant American band that sounded a little bit like Van Halen but more keyboard-driven. I really love the magical combination between Gregg´s keys, the Van Halen-like guitar that blisters high-tech solos and awesome riffs and the vocals from mr. David Glen Eisley. An 80´s must have!! 10/10.

From: sanxdowntherainbow Date: December 13, 2006 at 14:04
sounds like van halen???...uhh not that much... sounds like JOURNEY!!! whatever, this is what AOR fans call keyboard heaven! A must have, but in my opinion Silk and Steel is better than this one. 9/10

From: MetalPete67 Date: January 19, 2009 at 12:47
Quite simply put, "the best album that Journey never recorded". Case dismissed.

From: Animal! Date: January 21, 2011 at 1:35
Could not wait for this to come out back in the day. typical 80's album hard tracks and softer tracks. Must have for a fan of Gregg Giuffria

From: edwithmj Date: March 5, 2012 at 17:04
This sounds a lot like Zebra to me - especially the amazing Call To Your Heart. Other highlights are the unique Don't Tear Me Down, Dance and Turn Me On. Very melodic with tons of keyboards and a decent vocalist.

From: hair metal again Date: April 23, 2013 at 1:55
excellent debut by GIUFFRIA with a sound ahead of its time and many good songs!for me David Glenn Eisley is the mane attraction here with his passionate vocs and the way he writes songs that are full of hooks!Gregg s keys are fine and Craig s guitar work amazing!a must in every hard rock collection

From: maulars Date: May 10, 2014 at 9:49
"Lonely in Love" could easily make it into the top 100 songs in the soundtrack of my life. Love this album.
