Staff review by
One of the most truly captivating albums I've heard in a long time, Royal Thunder unleashes a stunning and very personal sophomore record. Sharp in both its simplicity and range, this amazing blues/rock/groove concoction is summed up in one word: intimate. Even on the first listen, before all lyrics are absorbed, vocalist Mlny Parsonz's stories of loss invoke specific experiences, memories, and emotions. She absolutely plumbs the depths of the human experience with her wailing voice.

At first I didn't like it but I love it now, they've managed to top the debut ... I'll give it a 9.

Excellent album, though some songs did take a while to truly grab my attention (the longer ones, like "Time Machine", to be exact). But Parsons' vocal delivery and the consistent, fluent instrumentation is really well-executed here. I really enjoyed the second half more so than the first (I feel like the last few songs impressed me the most overall), but its generally well-rehearsed and put together, even if a few songs are out-shined by others. Personal highlights for me would be "The Line" and the two-part closing "the Bear".

I think I enjoyed the last one a bit more. But this is still a welcome release as they've set the bar really high haha

The more I listen to "Time Machine", the more I'm convinced it's one of the best rock songs of 2015. It's just a brilliantly written song in my opinion.
