Thunder are a band who I've enjoyed since the beginning - I was just coming up to 14 and starting to discover rock music when the sensational Back Street Symphony was released and since then I've always had there CD's near the top of the pile.
The 3 albums that followed Back Street Symphony were good - not quite on a par with it, but every album had at least a couple of tracks or more that were instant classics and you'd pay your money for alone.
Then came 'giving the game away', which for me was a terrible album - too many sickly ballads, and not enough rawk! At that point I thought they'd had their day and sure enough a year or so later they went their seperate ways.
When they got back together I was immensely sceptical, mainly for the reasons given above that I thought they'd probably had their day. Out came the new album, which I bought, and it has to be said there are a few crackers on it, but for the most part I thought it was fairly mediocre, and didn't change my opinion that maybe we'd seen the best of them.
So I approached the 'Magnificent Seventh' with general cynicism and not expecting too much, but having had it on the stereo since I bought it a few weeks ago I take back everything I've said about them being over the hill - it is an absolutely fantastic album and the best I've bought for some time.
The opening song is good, but most 1st songs on Thunder albums are good, but then they get better - the second track 'Gods of War' is one of the finest Thunder tracks ever, and the good songs keep on coming - 'Monkey see, Monkey Do', 'Amy's on the run', 'You Can't keep a good man down' - I could almost be sitting in my school uniform at home all those years ago, the hairs on the back of my neck raised as I listened to Back Street Symphony for the first time.

Right from the first moment I got my grubby hands on this album I realised it was thunder at their finest. I'm being totally serious here when I say that this album is already up there with the first two albums for sheer passion, song writing virtuoso and quality. There are no filler or indifferent songs here! Standout tracks include 'Monkey See, Monkey Do' (sees danny's vocal stronger than ever wove together over a bed of heavy guitars),'Together or apart' (Lukes epic nod to Led Zeppelin perhaps? - bound to become a classic song) and 'I'm Dreaming again' (Laid back bluesy-rock with Luke's marvellous lyrical ability). There are not enough words I could write to do this album justice - simply buy it and TURN IT UP!!

In the Spring of 2003, Thunder released their first studio album in four years. For three of those four years, Thunder didn't technically exist, making the album one of their most eagerly anticipated releases. As throughout their career, Thunder didn't disappoint, announcing their return in traditional fashion; with some great pop-rock tunes and the underlying sense of humour that always made listening to Thunder such fun.

After so long away, it's essentially "difficult second album time" for Thunder again. The first time around, their second album was less catchy than the first, but musically and lyrically better. Perhaps the same will be true this time around, although "Shooting at the Sun" was a much more professional album than "Backstreet Symphony", with the benefit of an additional twelve years of experience and five albums of practice.

This may be the least Thunder sounding of all Thunder albums. There's nothing here that has you listening to the lyrics and laughing, which is usually something you can bank on with a Thunder album. Although he still has that distinctive voice, there's little that really stretches Danny's vocal, although he is getting older and is maybe less able to do what he used to be able to.

What it is, however, is proof that the band is continually looking forward. The sound here is perhaps more rounded than on previous albums, with a decent mix of ballads or rockers and, even in the up tempo songs, a mix of more rock tracks and stadium pop-rock numbers. Unfortunately, there's also a mix of quality with a number of tracks that will be Thunder standards for years to come and others that are a bit of a disappointment. There are more of the former than the latter, though, which is always a good sign.

A great album. "I love you more than rock 'n roll is amazing" (especially the cowbells), I love "Any's on the run" and "You can't keep a good man down" really rocks when you've had a bad day. The other tracks are pretty good too, making it a solid album and much played. Love it.

Having recently been introduced to Thunder and seeing them live, I am of the opinion that they are one of the best bands in the country and this album has only confirmed my views. Full of great riffs and head bopping songs, this is going to be in my car stereo for a long time to come.
The only thing I am a little disappointed with is the song Amy on the Run. I was really excited that I would have a song with my name it, they are few and far between, and although it is a great song it caused my husband to laugh out loud. Why did Amy have to be a man????? I will never live this down, having said that it is a great song and could be one of the best on the album!!
Great album guys, this has to be a must have in all rock collections!
