Wow. a contrast to the ethereal 'Dance of Life' and certainly heavier than the disco stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning new music from Narada Michael Walden 18 Sep 2013
By Forever Girl - Published on
Narada Michael Walden's new release "Thunder" is a genius work of art. Narada's tremendous talent shines brightly on this new cd as a producer, writer, drummer and singer. You can feel the love that went into this project. Every track is uniquely and beautifully crafted. My favorite tracks are Dragonfly, 40 Days, Throw Your Hands Up and We Belong Together. With that said, I love every song! The beauty of this cd for me is that it makes me feel uplifted, hopeful, nostalgic and alive! You will definitely be keeping this cd in rotation for a long time. Once again Narada shows us that he is a force to be reckoned with!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul Rock Artistry!! Updates + Renews the Genre 1 Oct 2013
By burninginDEN - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The previous reviews have {rightly so} mentioned the many accomplishments of this amazingly talented guy. The reviewers, like myself, are captivated and really impressed by this current collection, mentioning the many genres that influence this newly recorded music.

A lot of "labels" for one guy ..
This guy has recorded many hits of his own, as well as major hits with artists in the R&B/Soul/Rock/Pop/Funk/Jazz/Fusion genres..

This album transcends that ...It's VERY's an all new and amazing collection of 15 songs delivered with a passion, artistry, and most of all...REAL SOUL ... that puts this album into a place of it's own.

This album is Narada, in his best recorded voice ever, inspired to create great songs...It's a SOUL/ROCK Album of the 1st degree ... One that will amaze you with it's modern production expertise, and will renew your faith and enthusiasm for what great Soul/Rock music was and can be into the future...

Narada has always gravitated towards incredible guitarists....and this album features new guitar talent that will both astound and amaze you... GREAT Stuff!

Narada has made so many great albums ... Thunder 2013 is a MUST GET!

Listen to this... It's the music that got you to love music in the first place!

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favorite CD... 18 Sep 2013
By Dayna Newman - Published on
I was impressively pleased with This Cd from Narada Michael Walden. Although I'm used to the Genius that he brings to the R&B world I am equally smitten with this endeavor,it's fresh yet somewhat nostalgic and everything works perfectly.
The blend of acoustic rock,smokey bar room jazz and soul had me bobbing my head and tapping my toes.Although I love the entire track listing I was especially smitten with "Shake The House" 'Miracle of Fatima" Fatima, which has shades an Isley Brothers feel to it but still retaining it's own identity, just as another of my favorites "Shirley Mae" gives me some Steely Dan flavor."Don't Wanna Let you Go" and "40 Days" round out my other favorites.I highly recommend this to music lovers in general because it has something for everyone to love.
5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling Out Of The Blue Comeback From A Sometimes Unsung Musical Maestro 6 Nov 2013
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on
Format:Audio CD
One look at the session,production and recording history of Narada Michael Walden and its clear that in all those areas he might've done the most to shape the soul/funk/R&B spectrum of music in the post disco era. Not only that he was able to spin musical straw into gold on the pop and R&B charts through his productions with Stacy Lattisaw,Angela Bofill and of course the iconic Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin. Aretha herself once quoated Clive Davis himself as saying Narada was a "brilliant new talent". That's not to mention this man was also a seminal jazz/rock fusion drummer for Mahavishnu Orchestra,Tommy Bolin,Weather Report,Jeff Beck and the fretless bass genius Jaco Pastorius. When it comes to being one of the most well rounded man in modern music,Narada Michael Walden has to at least nearly top the list. So where has he been as a recording artist on his own for the last 18 years? Probably still recording and producing from what I can see. Suddenly he put together Tarpan Records,an independent label through which he put together a new band for two albums: a fusion EP Rising Sun and this album. So far this is the one I went for. And even for someone as musically eclectic and exciting as Walden? This album is musically a complete surprise.

The title track starts out the album with guitarists Matthew Charles Heulitt's bluesy hard rock guitar licks that show up on "Shake The House","New York City","Movin' On","Power","Down Low" and "Don't Wanna Let Go". These are all interesting songs as they are guitar oriented hard rockers on the top,but on the bottom rhythmically funkified numbers that are crafted in the 12-bar electric blues ethic. Really the idea musical combination for the sometimes elusive funk/rock hybrid-as the blues is often the one mutual force holding a combo of funk and rock music's together and Narada and guitarist Heulitt have it down to a science on these numbers. "Throw Your Hands Up" is a high energy soul/gospel inspired number inspired heavily by the rhythm and blues/first generation rock n roll of the late 50's/early 60's that Narada did have a strong grip on in many of his 80's productions. Here however,that musical level of joy is presented in a much rawer production style. The ballad "40 Days" and the slightly faster "Shirly Mae" are both beautifully atmospheric neo-psychedelic type pop/soul numbers that add dreamy electronic synthesizer atmospherics as a vital element.

"We Belong Together" is a densely produced epic pop/rock type number with a wonderfully cinematic arrangement closely related to the type of jazz fusion Narada specialized in during his heyday. And for that "Miracle Of Fatima" delivers classic Narada style fusion with his trademark spiritual atmosphere close enough in style to that of his 70's musical cohorts John McLaughlin and Carlos Santana. "Dreams Of Vinyl" is a melodic contemporary soul ballad production with singer Nikita Germaine paying tribute to the joys of experiencing the musical joys of everything from Marvin Gaye and Prince to Jimi Hendrix on the now very much revived music format of the long playing LP record. The countryish heartland style rocker of "Dragonfly",with it's sweet melody and "Power/Angel Funk" concludes the album with the funkiest track on this album. I never thought I'd near Narada Michael Walden produce an album with such a full on rock oriented sound. The spirit behind the album,as well as the gentler parts of Narada's vocal delivery,is very much that of Lenny Kravitz here. Add to that the vastness and instrumental dexterity that lay behind anything Narada Michael Walden produces and you have an album that truly understands the source of which the funk,hard rock and fusion that populates this album rhythmically come from,and that quality is soul. And that's a quality that is squeezed and dripping from every side of this very welcomed and happily surprising comeback.

I had no idea that Narada had released a new album. I just happened to be online to sell off some of my enormous music collection, when I came across Thunder. He sounds as good as ever, and I hope everyone gets a copy. Ironically, I was sitting at home earlier today listening to the stuff he did with Jeff Beck and Alphonso Johnson and thinking that it is a shame that he did not record more jazz fusion albums before he started producing. I was happy to see him get back behind the kit and on the road with Jeff Beck and Santana recently and even happier to see him doing his solo stuff again. It is about time! I am a bassist and drummer who I learned so much from listening to his music over the years.
