I liked the Thunder album, but it's too much of the same. Thunder have a formula (and don't get me wrong, it is a good formula emoticon ) and they stick to it. So even though I always like their albums, they can't really excite me that much any more.



It's true but I find this to be one of their strenghts. And then the combination of Morley's songwriting and Bowes vocals is just amazing. How Bowes isn't considered one of the all time great singers in rock is one of the mysteries of the world.

I thought he was considered one of the all-time greats emoticon

But I know what you mean. I don't know why Thunder never got bigger than they are. Maybe they came along a decade too late? Were they ever popular in America?

I don't think they ever were. I read their autobiography a few months ago, they toured the states only once, at the time of "Behind closed doors" in 1992. Can you imagine a worst moment to promote their music over there, with Seattle and grunge happening? Maybe they've always been "too british", in terms of image, lyrics, approach, etc. to appeal to a wider audience.

Re: YOUR TOP 3 ALBUM'S OF 2017 SO FAR.


I love thunder and often wondered why they weren't bigger.
However I was a bit disappointed with rip it up after wonder days which was exceptional.

Never heard of Thunder before accidentally listened to Wonder Days.

Seems to have been a very British band in all ways.

Totally love Wonder Days and Rip It Up.

Indeed. And a very humble guy as well, the few times I met him. I think he's also a strong lyricist, sometimes funny, sometimes deeper, with a great feel for rhymings and the musicality of words but their meaning as well. The perfect partner for Bowes.
