Bang! is another album packed with the usual ingrediants of what makes thunder tick tracks like "On the Radio" is a riff roaring pleasure reminiscent of the track "Dirty Love" coupled with the ageless vocals of Daniel Bowes whos at his best on the saucy tongue in cheek lyrics of "Have Mercy" which is amusing and catchy at the same time.

Apart from Tesla who have released another good album Thunder seems to be one of the few like the Wildhearts to continue flying the flag for Rock.

Its good that their split was temporarily short lived.

Well, this is a great album. Top class performance from the boys. Just to start i will say that the sticker for strong launguage on the front is deceiving. There are 2 swearwords on the whole album, so it's not major. It is a shame on that note that there was no title track because there could have been some fun in there! Luke is totally justified in writing a song showing his frustration as to why they have never been on the radio! Any way, on to the songs!
The Best on the album:
2.Stormwater
3.Carol Anne
5.Candy Man
6.Have Mercy
7.Watching Over You
8.Miracle Man
10.Love Sucks
12.Honey
The good but have something missing tracks:
1.On The Radio
4.Retribution
9.Turn Left At Calafornia
The Ones That Should Have Been Left Off But Are Interesting:
11.One Bullet
Seriously they are real quality songs. Its just with one bullet it's like my darkest hour from RJ'S Tombstone but it just isnt as good. My personal Favourates are Stormwater, Carol Anne and Candy Man. Danny's voice and Lukes guitar really do set the album alight, along with Bens cool guitar and keyboards, Harry's strong drumming and Chris' funky bass lines. Tara Macdonald's backing vocals on Carol Anne really tie in with the song! All in all Thunder fans must buy this, it is ESSENTIAL!!! I can't wait to see them in November and hear the great tunes from this album live. Bang! There will be a storm when you hear this!!!

Bought this in the shop today. Always been a Thunder fan and have every album, and I am not dissappointed here. Strong vocals, exellent guitaring and a good alternative take on rock sends this new Thunder album to my album of this year. Turn Left at California and On the Radio are my favs. cant wait to see them in november :)

I'm so old that I recall not just Thunder precursors Terraplane, but Terraplane precursors Nuthin' Fancy. Fortunately, unlike me, Thunder mainstays Danny Bowes and Luke Morley just seem to get better and better with the passing of time.

Readers outside the UK might not realise the place that Thunder hold in the hearts of British rock fans, but since the band returned from a brief hiatus in 2002, they've filled the role of best loved British rock band with a series of fine albums and, more importantly, fabulous live shows.

For those who don't know Thunder released their debut Back Street Symphony way back in 1990, and had a string of British hit singles and albums right through the nineties. With Luke Morleys writing allied to the amazing voice of Danny Bowes they've specialised in a blues-rock brand of music which was hugely unfashionable then (and now), following in the traditions of bands like Bad Company.

This is their ninth studio album, following on the heels of the excellent Robert Johnson's Tombstone release of 2006 and sees them, thankfully, sticking to what the do best. Right from the opening track, "On The Radio"', they hit the mark, with a punchy, rocking diatribe against the radio stations and TV channels that have resolutely ignored them over the years. I think it's safe to say that the plethora of swearing will ensure this one misses as well!

They take a look at Hurricane Katrina on "Stormwater", show how a power ballad should be done on "Retribution", and revisit the scene of many a rock band crime on the harmonica enhanced, bluesy, "Have Mercy". Although they do it without resorting to the direct approach Motorhead took on "Jailbait"!

Robert Johnson's Tombstone was a return to form for a band that had come so near to destruction and as an album, was very nearly perfect. Never pushing the envelope, but providing exactly what you always expected in the form of rock steady songs interspersed with more thoughtful numbers.
This though, while very likeable, is less immediate and requires a fair number of spins before you form a real impression of the contents. That said though, it is an album of two halves with the first 6 songs creating far less impact than the last 6, indeed, I find that if you play this album in "random play" on the cd player that it actually improves the "listenability" overall.....maybe it was intentional, maybe it was not, but as it stands, for me, only half the album comes across at the level one expects from Thunder!
Doubtless the band will highlight the better numbers from the album on their upcoming tour and hopefully, this will be culled from the latter half of the album.....!

This is one of the strongest rock albums I have heard during 2008.
Good rocking songs, great vocals, good guitar work and all in all a fabulous album.
I know the first song states that you won't hear this song "On the radio" because Thunder don't get played on that medium but . . . I heard "Turn left at California" on Planet Rock and just had to get this album. It gives me faith that in 2008 there are still good honest bands playing well good honest rock music with no frills and no pretensions. Up until I heard this I thought that "Black Ice" would be my favourite rock album of the year but this album has rapidly supplanted the AC/DC album as my favourite of the year
Highly recommended for rock fans everywhere
