Amazing
***
Ok, but over-played on Melbourne's Triple M...gives me the shits...
*****
Classic '90s track.
*****
Great 90s song but it too is overplayed on my radio station.
******
Awesome song, very cool.
******
Amazing song, one of the best from the 90's.
****
Nice song. I like how it builds up to a point, compared to the monotonous tracks of today.
*****
Classic rock track of the 90s, very well known and perhaps their signature song. It's kinda shocking to see that it only peaked at #13 here.
**
Tremendously average
******
Live's best song easily!
How it just builds and builds and builds is amazing, from the guitar chords at the start to the solo, and the final chorus is amazing! You have to listen to the whole 5 minute song to get a feel of it!
It is one of the best rock songs of the 90s and has for a long time been one of my favorite songs of not just the 90s, but all time. Complemented with a strange video also.

Irelander is right, played on Melbourne's Triple M a lot to the point that it may be considered to be 'overplayed', but I'm not complaining, they do like the rest of Throwing Copper; it's testament because the album is one of the best of the 90s!

Great riff. Awesome 90's track!
*****
Classic, I love the sound.
******
Amazing classic. It should have peaked higher than #13.
****
It's pretty good.

Similar to Bush's 'Glycerine', which I think is better than this.
****
It's pretty good but for some reason sounded very quiet when I was listening to it just before.
****
Quite good but Selling The Drama is better. 3.5 - 4.
******
Lightning Crashes is a masterpiece and probably one of the 5-10 best tracks of the 90's. Musically sound, a slow build, lyrical brilliance and great vocal delivery. Understated, building to desperation, creating vivid imagery and provoking a real emotional experience and a feel for the narrative of the endless circle, the cycle of birth, life and death and everything in between. Gets better the more you listen to it.
