KMA2655 House Of Lords – House Of Lords

Bought this on Mike’s suggestion, as there is a KISS connection (it was on Gene Simmons’ label), and because he said it was kinda tough to find. From the 3-for$10 bin, good enough for me.

Toasty Taranna #14: BMV #14: 3-For-$10 Bin #10: House Of Lords – House Of Lords

The intro to Pleasure Palace threw me, but it soon got down to rockin’. Throughout these songs, I thought the KISS influence was huge. The riffs and song structures are solid. Lookin’ For Strange was a Hot For Teacher blast, and there are a few 80s soundtrack efforts too (try Love Don’t Lie). Slip Of The Tongue was another fun full-tilt boogie, and I loved the intro to Jealous Heart before the typical tune takes over. In all, I liked it. Would play it again, when I want some 80s rawk.

Hit It Or Quit It? Hit.

  1. I’m a sucker for marble effect covers but I still can’t help feeling this is a bit of a wet fart of an album!

    Liked by 1 person

  2. I remember thinking this band was hair first music second at the time. Haven’t thought about them since


  3. Not a bad album. Very 80’s as you say and I play it every now and again. Good choice.


  4. I’m thinking this one was released in 88? I did buy it. It did not grab me right away in the listening dept! But when I think back to the years especially 1982-1991 there was so much music coming out that I was scooping like a lunatic that when I would spin it and it didn’t grab my attention right away I moved on…this album was one of them…
    Too Much Pomp!


    • Yup, 1988. Good memory, Deke! There was certainly an overload of music for Dekesters in those years, I can see how it wouldn’t stand out. Do you think, though, if there hadn’t been such a glut of other stuff, that this one (and its pomp) might have been a helluva lot better, to your ears?


  5. Not familiar – but I’m familiar with the occasional 80s rawk cravings, so always good to have options ready to go for such occasions!


  6. I’m always good for a Hot For Teacher blast.


  7. I still love this album. When I’m in a ballad mood, I go for it!
