No one was willing to review this brand new album by the British hard rockers THUNDER,
so I gave it a shot.
I must admit that THUNDER has done nothing for me in the past and this release called
‘The EP Sessions 2007-2008 won’t change how I feel about the band’s music.
The songs on this CD were recorded in 2007 and 2008 and originally offered to THUNDER fans
as 3 x 6 track EPs.
We get 16 tracks of original songs, live recordings and re-worked versions but I think that it’s for
THUNDER fans only. There are only 2 tracks on this album that have rocked my world, namely
the catchy “Yesterday’s News” and the excellent hard rocker “Chain Reaction”.
The rest of the songs are not bad by any means... but not above average in my humble opinion.
I miss the WOW effect and would be quite happy never to hear tracks such as; “Survivor” and
“Dirty Dream” again.
Thunder officially split in early 2009 and this CD is for THUNDER fans only who wants to hear
the final breath of the band.
