    Royal Thunder display a soulful sonic acumen that's as dynamic as it is compelling.
  2. Jul 23, 2012
    CVI is soaked in the elixir of resonant, home-spun, rock and roll truths-a grand artistic vision distilled to its most expressive essence.
  3. Jul 6, 2012
    Royal Thunder ultimately sound like no one but themselves.
  4. Jul 6, 2012
    When Royal Thunder pull things in and keep them snappy, they're heading more towards Rival Sons turf, and that's a good place to be.
  5. Jul 6, 2012
    This is a solid debut album.

    Banshee control inherent to CPR pounder "No Good" could use a few more thunderous tempos, but beware Parsonz's hex.
  7. 60
    CVI is a serviceable debut-with remarkable vocal performances-but Royal Thunder sounds caught between what it is (a blues-wielding powerhouse) and what it aspires to be (prog-metal escapism).
