Album Review

Long-running British hard rockers Thunder are being a bit presumptive when they call an album Robert Johnson's Tombstone, since their brand of AC/DC-style crunch owes only slightly more to the blues than Be Bop Deluxe owes to Charlie Parker. Indeed, the opening title track is a bit of a laugh, a shamefully earnest bit of white-boy blooze that simply doesn't come off very well. With that out of the way, however, Thunder return to what made them, if not famous, then at least reasonably well known in certain circles: punchy three-chord hard rock delivered with maximum swagger and minimum fuss. Highlights include the surprisingly thoughtful meditation on fame and art in "Andy Warhol Said," and the seven-minute boogie workout "Last Man Standing." While Robert Johnson's Tombstone won't win Thunder any new acolytes, fans will be entirely pleased.

Customer Reviews

SIMPLY AWESOME

These guys just get better and better if you never heard of Thunder you are missing out on a lot! This new cd rocks. From tracks like Dirty Dream and The Devil Made Me Do It to ballads like My Darkest Hour and A Million Faces truly makes this one of Thunder's Best. A must buy in my collection you won't go wrong. If you are longing for some new rock you've come to the right place.

Thunder Stormer!

Thunder Rocks Again! From the steel guitar intro of the title track, Robert Johnson’s Tombstone, to the typically Thunderesque melodic rocker Stubborn Kind of Love, your head will be banging all the way to English band Thunder’s latest album. Guitarist/writer Luke Morley’s genius shines through with the Cello arrangement of the ballad My Darkest Hour, with the riff and lyrics of the new single The Devil Made Me Do It and the heads down rocker Dirty Dream. Danny Bowes blends his big voice with an emotional delivery that never fails to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, and if you don’t identify with the subject matter of at least one song on this album, you can have no soul. Ben, Chris and Harry provide the rumbling over-drive that underpins this Great British Rock and Roll band and keeps the distinctive sound of Thunder rolling through the album. Like Marmite and HobNobs, Thunder is a tasty English export that has failed to catch on in the States. Come on America, you won’t know if you don’t try it! For anyone bored with the current rock scene, give these English Rockers a spin. Satisfaction Guaranteed!

The most underrated Rock on the planet..

RJ's Tombstone is another quality album! I am still perplexed why they never made it big here in the states.
