Pam Tillis always delivers interesting albums, but Thunder and Roses is another story altogether. In a collection of songs that looks at love less in the heat of the moment than in afterglow, Tillis uses her impressive command of nuance and phrasing to lend each song the feel of having been cut from harsh experience in the real world. "Which Five Years" uses gently rocking instrumental support to frame a compelling question: What you would give up in experience if it were possible to travel back in time and do it all over again? The answer isn't easy. The acoustic-driven pop gem "Off-White," which Tillis cowrote, looks at love the second time around in the realistic terms of someone who knows how the game is played. A soaring, inspirational ballad with her dad, the legendary Mel Tillis, closes the album on a positive note, urging an aggressive approach to realizing our dreams. Mel gives the message gravitas. Pam says, Yeah, I got it, Dad. And you know she has -- loud and clear.
