AllMusic Review by

Thunder Beach never got much airplay on CCM radio, but it nonetheless is an excellent example of the sort of stuff that did in the mid-'80s: heavily produced pop music with lots of guitars and keyboards, a big shiny sound which tries with limited success to hide its limited budget. Their songwriting is also typical of many of their Christian Contemporary contemporaries: the songs are melody-driven, and their lyrics benefit from the strength of their convictions. Unfortunately, their convictions are expressed almost entirely in clich├ęs ("Ain't no hit or miss, So tell it like it is, All your cards on the table").
