great melodic hard rock played by great musicians

From: Jean Philippe Date: January 31, 2005 at 11:37
TOYZ is a french Hard Rock/AOR band who have made an excellent CD. If you like strongs & melodic songs, this CD is for you !!

From: AOR freaky Date: January 31, 2005 at 13:19
I'm afraid I have to say that this CD is at best third rate AOR, or even not that close ! Worst release on Escape, normally a quality label, ever ! These guys still have to learn a lot. They better should listen how the americans and canadians did and still do it ! This release on CD came too early.

From: Karo Date: February 6, 2005 at 20:52
What a realease ! I wait for the second opus....

From: justine Date: February 12, 2005 at 19:52
thanks to escape for discovering this great group.their first french one. Toyz have a style of their own, which is a breath of fresh air in hard rock these days. For a first shot, it is a real good one. when comes the live show?

From: Fifisto Date: February 19, 2005 at 1:09
Wake up now and open your ears. TOYZ "House of Cards" is the best LP of Hard Rock/AOR at this moment. It's not a surprise for me, because i was lucky to see this Parisian team in live at different times before this perfect production. Waiting for the next album, i have a special attention to the song "Big Ice Creams" that i love. Best wishes and a BIG RESPECT. (have someone a pill of Prosac to give to the poor guy "AOR freaky" ?)

From: AOR freaky Date: February 19, 2005 at 4:04
I don't need Prozac, Fifisto, but you are French and that tells everything ! This is a bad record and these guys can learn a lot from their american and canadian mates ! But yeah, the French still think that they dominate the world, ha ha ha ! How painfull !

From: jules Date: February 21, 2005 at 18:10
no need to dominate the world to play good music. I like this cd very much myself, especialy "she's a star"

From: vandervelde Date: February 23, 2005 at 11:02
This is a nice piece of aor...nothing outstanding or to die for but tracks like She's A Star or One Step To Hell are worth checking out...

Things don't get off to a very good start on this, especially the vocals which are pretty badly accented on the first track, but they do get better as the disc goes on and you get used to them. The material is a little patchy throughout, although just as I was losing interest, track 6, 'One Step To Hell' kicks in - Awesome song - Great chorus, Nice Keys and a simple but effective solo. Over all what I would describe as a 'B'List' AOR disc and certainly not essential listening by any means, altho

From: juan carlos Date: November 14, 2007 at 15:34
Buen HardRock melódico con profusión de teclados, la verdad que no es tan bueno ni malo, lo hacen bien o nada mal nada mas. La rápida "That's My Heart" la que mejor es para mí, "New Love Is Blind" "Heart Beats Alone" ok. Coros,solos,riffs y producción todo ok pero pudieron hacerlo mejor. 7.8/10

From: hair metal again Date: June 8, 2018 at 3:15
very average release for TOYZ from France and it seems that these guys dont know how to rock ,but they only enjoy to play together!Especially the keyboard player and the singer are quite bad !No real hooks or interesting ideas and only the guitar solos are remarkable!the worst Escape release and pretty average

From: 123charpenay Date: June 8, 2018 at 8:37
hi hair metal my friend.you have to know that in the frenchies hard rock bands the singer is always very bad ,a nightmare.it s regretable but it s like this.trust me you know that i m french so i m sure.i don t know this record but i m sure you are right.

From: 123charpenay Date: June 8, 2018 at 8:46
listen "big ice cream" on you tube.yes hair metal the singer is bad.it s a slaughter.it s not a surprise for me.how escape music can sign a band with a so poor "singer"?Same reflexion for immaculate mary.if i was the boss of a record team i don t put one cent on these bands.
