Giants 'time to burn' kicks off with the thunderous track 'thunder and lightning' and continues with some excellent melodic rock tracks.Very rare for an album to contain so many great tracks but this one does it brilliantly from the catchy 'i,ll be there' to the tearful ballad 'now until forever; A must for all fans who appreciate the likes of bands such as 'firehouse' and 'dare'.Overall an excellant album that deserved more credit than it got.

So this is soft rock. Once you've dealt with the fact this is 'uncool' music, you can accept it for what it is - a great album. The songs are brilliant, no filler here. Excellent production and truly jaw-dropping guitar courtesy of Dan Huff. Buy all three of their albums, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smokin 9 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Wow, every bit as good as I remember. I used to live with this album permantly residing in my Walkman bouncing my way through life with its uplifting melodies and fantastic guitar pounding through my ears. It is timeless in places and dated in others, but if you love guitar and the power ballads, buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible melodic rock 12 Jun 2002
By Brad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had always been interested in these guys but had never bought an album by them until recently, when I ordered this one from Amazon.com. Fans on sites ...raved about this band and this album, .... This album is incredible.
How can you go wrong with rockers like "Chained", "Lay It On The Line", and the title track? All have over-the-top melodic vocals and instantly memorable hooks. Ballads like "Stay" and "I'll Be There (When It's Over)" also represent the best of what this genre is about. "Stay" is one of the best power ballads I have heard in years. Too bad it wasn't a hit, but it sure will make it on a future burned CD music mix of mine. "Lost In Paradise" is another exceptional song, the epitome of a great rock anthem. Comparisons to Def Leppard in their prime are valid when I think of songs like this--and coming from me (a huge Lep fan) that is a compliment.
I strongly encourage all melodic rock fans to pick this one up. At least as good as most popular rock album put out by '80s "pop metal" bands, and better than plenty of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars wow 14 Feb 2007
By Michael Williamson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I never thought Giant had it in them. Their first album was pretty good and usually everyone's first was pretty good. But along came the sophomore slump and that just doesn't exist on time to burn. It is by far their best effort heads above Last of the Runaways. With songs like Thunder and Lightning, Stay, I'll be there, Giant has won me over. I would suggest that if you don't have it get it, a great set of songs from a group that should of been around longer than they were.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite Hard Rock CDs - the best in hard times 8 Mar 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this CD while lying in bed with a stomach upset, but it quickly kicked me out of it - the bed and the trouble!
Giant is so unknown in Germany. I went to the photokina 2000 in Köln and was surprised - Wow, now they have crossed the atlantic!
But the new album should not be so good? I don't know.
I've been testing so many Rock-CDs, Christian, Non-Christian, but then I see: it is the standard. I like XT, Fighters, David Mullen, Whitehearts, Angelica (all christian groups). Once I tested a new album of Scorpions. (Still loving you, Wind of change, Send me an angel are so great with Klaus Meine as a Hard-Rock-Caruso) and I really asked myself, if I like Hard-Rock and if there could be good music. Then I put 'Time to burn' in my player. What a difference. The ballads 'Lost in paradise' and 'Now until forever' even speaks more to my heart then Klaus Meines wonderful sung 'Still loving you.' 'Lost in paradise' has more tension, more sorrow, more feeling.
Yes, this Rock sounds like the 80ties, but isn't that great? I can't hear those heartless 'Soul', Hip-Hop, Rap, Techno any more and good rocksongs have been destroyed by the silly techno beat with weak voices. Some songs are really fast and you can sweat in deep winter while dancing. It's a lot more power than Bryan Adams and Bon Jovi have in the 80ties, not talking of them in the early 90ties. (Then I dropped my interest in their music.)
Real 'Hard'Rock, melodic, sometimes aggressive power, but never trashy...

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL BURNIN' HOT... 13 Nov 2003
By JULIANO MALLON - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Dann Huff, David Huff, Mike Brignardello and Alan Pasqua had the difficult task of puttin' out a follow-up album to the wonderful LAST OF THE RUNAWAYS. Many thought they couldn't quite do it...they were wrong.
TIME TO BURN, Giant's 2nd effort is a great AOR album, from the opening "Thunder and Lightning" to the killer "Get Use To It".
The album's agreat collection of AOR anthems, almost all co-written with the help of Brit producer Terry Thomas (Bad Company, Foreigner). The result is not as wonderful as it was on the first album (where almost 90% of the songs were co-writen by Mark Spiro), but it goes highly recommended.
"Stay" was the promo single for the record (though it had a different version, with more keyboards, and it was shorter in length).
"Now Until Forever" is a killer ballad, where "I'll Be There (When It's Over)" and "Without You" come as close as a radio-friendly AOR track could get.
Great AOR music, great production...get it now !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to Burn is a perfect example of melodic rock at it's peak. 4 Feb 2009
By George Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Before forming Giant, frontman Dann Huff was an in-demand session musician. He worked with such music heavyweights as Michael Jackson and Amy Grant. Huff decided to team up with his brother Dave and signed a record deal in 1989. Their first single "I'll See You in My Dreams" actually cracked the Top 20. Sadly, the album didn't sell that well. Giant returned in 1991 with Time to Burn.

"Thunder and Lightening" kicks things off with energetic guitar and pounding drums. Dann Huff's vocals are the pinnacle of 80's melodic rock. The twitch of the keyboard adds just the right texture. An extended acoustic jam leads you into the powerful chorus of "Chained." Huff pushed his range to the limit on the harmonic bridge and chorus. It's another round of melodic fury on "Lay It On the Line." Despite the chunky riffs and pulsing keys, the track has just a hint of the blues.

What would a rock album from the 80s be without a power ballad? "Lost in Paradise" is an emotional track driven by keyboards and Huff's throaty vocals. Lightening quick guitar licks and driving riffs run rampant over "Time to Burn." "Without You" returns to the power ballad format, but with more guitars and more regrets. The chorus is an over-the-top emotion-jerker. The album concludes with the same energy it started with on "Get Used to It."

The band disbanded shortly after the release of the album. They did release a few albums here and there over the years, but Dann Huff returned to session work. He went on to work with Shania Twain, Michael W. Smith, and also produced two Megadeth albums. The list of people Huff has worked with goes on and on, and their all big name artists. If your wondering about Huff's associations with Smith and Grant, he is a devout Christian and was part of the Christian rock band White Heart prior to Giant.

The Verdict
I found this album at a yard sale three years ago and haven't stopped listening to it since. I honestly never heard of Giant before I picked it up. I can't believe how much of a melodic rock masterpiece this album it. The guitars are mighty, the vocals are powerful, and the hooks and riffs are plenty. Time to Burn is a perfect example of melodic rock at it's peak.
