The Boys Are Back In Town!

Advantages: Everything that makes Thunder great is in here somewhere
Disadvantages: Vocals poorly mixed on a couple of songs

When Thunder announced they were splitting after ten years in 1999, it was a sad day for many of their fans, knowing we’d never see a band quite like them again. However, all was not completely lost. It appears that, in much the same way as when Terrapl ...

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 ...

Game Over...or is it...

Advantages: Thunder's most mature album, lyrically and musically
Disadvantages: The 4 year gap before the next one

This album shows the great strides that Thunder made during the first ten years of their career. There is a much greater maturity in both the music and the lyrics here, as compared to previous albums. The backing vocals have greatly improved from 1995’s “ ...
