Este album es uno de los mejores albunes de hard rock de la historia del rock, no tenerlo o no haberlo escuchado es un pecado mortal para aquellos que nos gusta esta música.

From: Gar Date: August 7, 2002 at 18:08
This was their best album. One of the rare long CDs with no lame filler material. 'Like a Satellite' is thier best song.

From: robert Date: October 23, 2002 at 20:12
Buen disco de hard rock! grandes temas.

From: music man Date: November 7, 2002 at 7:08
Just got a copy of this the other day and for a band I knew nothing about, all I can say is WOW! If you like classic Bad Company do yourself a huge favor and pick this one up.

From: Dave Date: October 8, 2003 at 0:59
If you can you should try and track down the single 'Low life in high places' because it contains the best cover version of all time, of the classic 'With a little help from my friends' It would be one of the most powerful songs Thunder have ever done and believe me they have done a few. It will blow your socks off!!!!!! As i said , it's my best cover version of all time!!!

Uno de sus mejores albums, si no el mejor... Impresionante: 14 cortes en los que hay bien poco que no sea aprovechable. Casi una obra maestra del Hard/AOR.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 15, 2004 at 16:18
Starts off very strong, especially 'Everybody Wants Her'. The album though tends to run a little too long and the further the album goes, the more this hard blues rock sound tends to sound all the same. 6/10

From: aorwilko Date: July 19, 2008 at 13:52
This is possibly Thunders strongest & most consistent album. "Low life in High Places" might just be their greatest moment, but superlatives should always abound on everything this band does as songwriting skills & musicianship are always exemplary & Danny Bowes has a fantastic voice and is a charismatic front man. If you are not aware of this great British band by now, then you most certainly SHOULD be !!

From: edwithmj Date: February 20, 2012 at 14:12
Just not as good as the first disc but there are still some killer tracks with a bit of filler: Does It Feel Like Love is a perfect opener right from the opening riff; Everybody Wants her is skippable; Low Life In High Places starts off slow then switches to heavy rock; my favourite, Laughing On Judgement Day is a perfect hard rock track and one of their best; Empty City, A Better Man and Like A Satellite are all ballads with the latter definitely being one of the best they've done; Today The World Stopped Turning is the other highlight here. Another great release from Thunder and fans of the band and hard rock should definitely like it.

THUNDER has been one of the important names in the 90 s hard rock scene!their sound is kinda classic hard rock from the UK with some more commercial moments and always radio friendly!this one has some fillers and maybe the songs should be shorter but there are also all the things that made THUNDER succeed and overall a fine release."like a satellite","everybody wants her","low life in high places" and "better man " are the highlights !lived that release much cause i bought it as soon as it was released and it still brings great memories

merry chrismas from france!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 24, 2013 at 18:33
I saw this band live and met them in a "greet & meet" in London-England when they released their debut album as well...this record is a nice follow up to that debut one,some good tracks in here are "Everybody Wants Her","Flawed To Perfection" & "Like A Satellite"...some other fine moments are songs 1,3,4,7,8 & 11...enjoyable stuff in here 4 sure .86/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: June 30, 2014 at 20:06
You gotta admire Thunder: their songwriting is just impeccable. tHeir tunes are just so well-put-together, everything is right where it should be and does what it's supposed to do. It's like they wrote the book on Commercial Hard-Rock Songwriting 101, without ever sounding fussy or too wrapped up in details. They still have plenty of soul. At the same time though, the music has a very safe, familiar feel, and really doesn't take any chances whatsoever. This is a good album for a long car trip; it's steady and comfortable, right down the middle of the road, and even the rockers still maintain a laid-back groove that won't have you bearing down on the gas. Even in '92, these guys sounded a bit retro, and it's surprising that AOR radio in America, with its obsession with anything '70's-like, didn't latch on to them. There may not be much to get really excited about with Thunder, but there's sure a lot to like.
