AllMusic Review by

Time-Life Music's Guitar Rock: Guitar Thunder features 12 rock radio staples, including "Show Me the Way" by Peter Frampton, "Easy Livin'" by Uriah Heep, "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by the Scorpions, "All Right Now" by Free, "American Woman" by the Guess Who, "Summertime Blues" by Blue Cheer and "Whipping Post" by the Allman Brothers Band. Some of the songs, such as "Hit Me with Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar and "(I Know) I'm Losing You" by Rod Stewart with Faces, however, aren't exactly hard rock. These songs are available on other compilations, but this disc offers a decent collection for the casual fan.
