Thick as Thieves has Trooper sounding pretty sturdy and musically adept, even on the filler. Frank Ludwig's keyboards helped in giving "Round Round We Go" its number ten placing on the Canadian charts, tied with "Oh Pretty Lady" for the band's highest ranking single, while "Raise a Little Hell" became the band's most popular tune, thanks to its blunt guitar/drum composite and straightforward, rudimentary beat. But aside from these two hits, songs like "Live From the Moon," "No Fun Being Alone," "Say Goodnight," and "One Good Reason" all sport attractive rhythms, surprisingly brisk harmonies, and lyrics that don't seem as if they were written as last-minute efforts. Although the group's intentions were obvious on "Drivin' Crazy," it does meet its designed purpose as a gratifying driving tune, but both "Gambler" and "Roll With It" are a little weak and sound rather negligent when compared to the rest of the album. Thick as Thieves stands out, albeit slightly, from the rest of Trooper's releases as an album that makes for a sufficient listen from one end to the other, while most of their hits are better appreciated in compilation form on Hot Shots, their best-selling album. ~ Mike DeGagne
