Thunder - Not Dead Yet!

Advantages: Some songs as good as anything Thunder have ever done
Disadvantages: Not available really cheaply, yet.

In these days of flash in the pan musical acts, it’s refreshing to be able to review a band’s eighth studio album; a band that have been together on and off for nearly two decades. Knowing the fickle nature of music fans, it does give me a little proud mo ...

Thrilling...but only in part

Bangkok Shocks, Saigon Shakes, Hanoi Rocks...live

Advantages: pure rock and roll
Disadvantages: a bit dated by modern tastes
