Released In 2006

House Of Lords was once one of the many AOR acts in the 80's, and even had some minor success on the charts but disbanded in 1993.In 2000 the band got back together without leader keyboardist Gregg Giuffria (who does make a guest appearance on this album), and released The Power And The Myth.In 2006 is when House Of Lords released the definite album of their career IMO.The album is filled with bang your head rockers (I'm Free, Rock Bottom), timeless anthems (These Are The Times, My Generation (not a Who cover), and of course power ballads (Million Miles, title-track).The only thing holding this back from being in an higher spot is that they are a total of four ballads.I mean I like a good rock ballad, but having more then 2 on an album is over doing it.The highlight of the whole album is definitely the power of James Christian's voice, who is probably one of the best modern day AOR singers.The guitar playing of both Jimi Bell AND James Christian is pretty solid as well, nothing groundbreaking, but definitely top notch.This album brings a modern touch to the classic 80s AOR sound.
