"Thunder and Lightning" is a Thin Lizzy prize. Released in 1983, this is Old School Heavy Metal that is stupendous with every aspect of it's music. John Sykes on guitar is sensational, especially on "Cold Sweat", "Someday She Is Going To Hit Back" and "Baby Please Don't". In my opinion, the purchase of this album is worth it for these three songs alone, however, every song is incredible Heavy Metal that will engulf you. "Thunder and Lightning" to me, is one of those albums that is a perfect example of being a Heavy Metal hidden treasure. "The Holy War" is a standout song for me, it is not that it just rocks, the lyrics are intelligent, the guitar solo is breathtaking and the rhythm section comes at you with a continuous groove. The late Phil Lynott is simply excellent on vocals, he had a contagious voice that I find so unique. "Bad Habits" and "Heart Attack" are the real catchy, melodious and hooky songs that end this great album, the riffs and leads are extremely memorable on these two songs. Overall, in my opinion, this is as sound, talent fused and classic of a Heavy Metal album as you can get, "Thunder and Lightning" truly delivers on it's title. Any Hard Rock, Classic Rock or Heavy Metal fan should appreciate what Thin Lizzy created here with "Thunder and Lightning", I really do.
