Thunder Seven Review:

This was it. This was the album that started it all for me. When I hear the songs they take me back to some good times. Too bad I missed the concert in Guelph that year and I regret it all the time. As I type this I am listening to “Time Goes By.” How fitting. I have my fingers crossed that a reunion tour is a possibility.

Allied Forces Review:

A milestone for rock fans, yet a kind of hidden jewel over here in Germany. High vocals to make you shiver, beautiful sparkling acoustic guitars, slicing sharp electric guitars, stomach-felt bass lines and great, skilful, high-energy drumming – maybe the best combination of skill, melodic beauty, power and sound I managed to hear up to now – and this is stated by a true Rush fan. Anyway, this is all so far away from now, being one of the first rock albums I ever listened to back in wonderful 1981, at the age of 16. Still the music rocks today without any loss of energy or freshness.
