4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy but polished 29 Jan 2001
By eveoflove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Made in FRA in 2000, Serial# 3063662, Playing Time: 47 min.
Originally released in 1986, this is their 2nd album. Hard rock with a very full sound, this album contains some great material. David Glen Eisley's vocals are very similar to Journey's Steve Perry. Same power, same vocal range, but put to music that's somewhat heavier.
Even though their first album contained the fantastic "Call To The Heart", I found "S+S" better overall. This re-mastered edition also contains a bonus track they contributed to the "Gotcha!" soundtrack.
This is one of my favorite albums from 1986; if you like Night Ranger's early albums as well as powerful melodies with rich keyboard and guitar textures, and fantastic vocals, grab this!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fine piece of 80's melodic metal history! 13 Mar 2005
By Bass player Brad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is much better than the first Giuffria album.With this one they toughened up their guitar sound a bit.This album is a great example of 80's metal.The keyboards sound great,but on certain song it's a bit over done.

1.No escape(9/10)Stars out with a keyboard intro and then bursts into a great rocker!

2.Love You Forever(5/10)Sappy love ballad.Your girlfriend will like it,but you won't!

3.I Must be Dreaming(5/10)More of the same.Another Love ballad.

4.Girl(5/10)More over used keyboards on this one.Dosen't sound bad though.

5.Change of Heart(7/10)This one picks up a bit.A very good song.The guitar sounds good on this track.If you love the 80's,you'll love this one like I do!

6.Radio(8/10)Straight ahead anthem rocker!

7.Heartache(6/10)Another love ballad of this album.Not bad!

8.Lethal Lover(10/10)The guitar talent here is amazing.This song really rocks.You'll love it!

9.Tell it Like It Is(10/10)Another great rock song.Fans of 80's will really enjoy this one.

10.Dirty Secrets(7/10)Not bad,but not the best!

If you want to own a rare 80's gem,then is is a good one.Bottom line if you like ballads and 80's metal you will like this!Don't pay over 19 bucks for it though!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great reissue, allowing one to enjoy "Silk and Steel" to the maximum 12 Sep 2011
By Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Silk and Steel" is the second album by American AOR/melodic hard rock band "Giuffria" originally released in 1986. This is a 2010 reissue by "Metal Blade" records featuring one bonus track. "Giuffria" was the outfit of white rock keyboardist Greg Giuffria, an established rock musician since the late 70s as a member of Christian metal band "Angel". His band would later serve as the foundation for the formation of AOR/melodic hard rock super-group "House of Lords". The line up on this second album features guitar wizard Lanny Cordola, bassist David Sikes, drummer Alan Krigger and the amazing vocal talent of David Glen Eisley alongside Greg.

Often obscured by their platinum debut album, "Silk and Steel" pushed the creative boundaries of "Giuffria" into a thicker, more arena-rock sound, drawing closer to the sound of early "House of Lords". Still, the AOR atmosphere is never undermined thanks to the stimulating keyboard harmonies and Eisley's vocal performance. "Heartache" is the slow, melody-driven drama with a super infectious chorus, "Lethal lover" is the up-tempo glam metal attack, "Radio" is an equally heavy though substantially happier rocker, and there is of course "Change of Heart". Arguably the album's strongest moment, "Change of Heart" is an AOR masterpiece where the entire band shines though the undeniably protagonist is Eisley whose vocal performance is nothing less than monumental.

This reissue also benefits from great stereo sound quality, surprisingly clear and thick for `80s recordings allowing one to play the album even louder without loss in audio fidelity. "Silk and Steel" is easily amongst the greatest works in the "Giuffria-House of Lords" album catalogue while the given reissue stands as the ideal opportunity to obtain a previously out-of-print classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Giuffria Does It Again! 8 Sep 2005
By Stuart M. Tysinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Giuffria was in essence a super group of musicians. Gregg Giuffria has been in (Angel, House Of Lords & Keel), David Glen Eisley has been in (Dirty White Boy, Friderikson/Phillips, Murder's Row & Elements Of Friction), Craig Goldy has been in (Dio & His own cd's), Alan Krigger (Just Giuffria) & Chuck Wright has been in (Bad Moon Rising, Doro, Impellitteri, House Of Lords, Kelly Keeling, Ted Nugent, Magdalen, Magdallan, Murder's Row & Quiet Riot). I prefer this cd to the Self Titled one before it. It has a more polished & radio friendly feel to it. It is getting harder & harder to find since Axe Killer went out of business & the MCA version is long out-of-print & impossible to find. So, if you can find them collect them because they will be worth a lot of money in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Giuffria Tribute 6 July 2001
By Rebel Alliance - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Excellent album. Silk + Steel, along with Giuffria themselves, never got the recognition they both deserved. First of all, Giuffria's first album was awesome! But, in my opinion, Silk + Steel is the better of the two. It's so sad MCA records didn't promote Giuffria more (if any) than they did. Giuffria is one of the best bands from the '80s. Silk + Steel is their proof. Anyone who knows who Giuffria is will agree... Thanks.
