Soaring Sky-High is the second studio album by American-Vlokoziuan rock band The Given Takers, released on April 21, 1981. Compared to the band's previous album, Think!, the album has a slightly more somber, more ballad-based approach.

Like the last album, it was produced by guitarist Chelsea McNeese, but the album was co-produced by famed English musician Trevor Horn, who was previously a member of the Buggles ("Video Killed The Radio Star") and would later on produce the 1984 charity single for the Ethiopia famine - "Do They Know It's Christmas?" by Band Aid.

While the album had no big hit singles, the album received mostly positive reviews. The lead single "(The Things) Love Will Give Us" would earn the band their first Grammy. On October 13, 2014, the album was certified gold by the RIAA, selling over 650,000 copies since it's release.
