Richard Thompson's first full band recording since 1996's You? Me? Us? finds him in impressive form. Drawing its inspiration from the "cultural wasteland" of Thompson's North London youth, Mock Tudor has a variety and a lightness of touch to rival Rumor and Sigh, his most critically acclaimed album of recent years. Opening with the bright R&B of "Cooksferry Queen" and ending with the disturbingly simple "Hope You Like The New Me", Mock Tudor displays the breadth of Thompson's musical palette: the rhythmic "Sibella" contrasting with the thumping power of "Hard On Me"' and the bare emotion of "Dry My Tears And Move On." Other highlights include the perky, catchy rhythm of "Crawl Back Under My Stone" and the lowlife tales of "Sights and Sounds of London Town". Thompson's intricate guitar work is backed by an impressive supporting cast which includes his son, Teddy, while producers Tom Rothrock and Rob Schnapf take to their task with admirable restraint. --Ben Landon

I have always felt that, despite his undoubted guitar and songwriting talent and his distinctive and original style, Richard Thompson’s solo albums have been quite hard work to listen to, on account of his somewhat expressionless voice and the often bleak subject matter of his songs. In contrast, his albums with his former wife Linda were greatly enhanced by her voice, which brought out the best in both melancholy and cheerful songs. For well over a decade Richard’s many solo albums have seemed rather lugubrious, and this was not helped by the slightly incongruous production on some albums. However, this is all rectified on Mock Tudor, a loosely thematic collection of great songs about life in suburbia, which has a sensitive and contemporary production sound that enlivens the songs rather than weighing them down. Richard is as sardonic as ever, but the songs bound along effortlessly in a manner slightly reminiscent of Mark Knopfler. A great album that is serious but won’t make you miserable. It’s good value at nearly an hour long, and the artwork is stylish too.

Richard Thompson fans already know to expect finely crafted tunes with haunting lyrics, and this album will not disappoint. We're in the familiar territory of unrequited love, betrayed love and the fag end of failed relationships, and Thompson has lost none of his ability to tug at the heartstrings. But the uninitiated needn't be put of by the thought of all this unrelenting misery, because some of these songs really rock! "Sibella" and "Sights and Sounds of London Town" stand out as catchy songs with singalong choruses, and should be enough to convert even those suspicious of folk rock. I'm sure by now that Richard Thompson is resigned to critical acclaim, and relative commercial obscurity, but on the basis of this album, failure to achieve mass popularity is not easy to understand.

Richard Thompson has the problem of living up to early brilliance. All his albums with ex-wife Linda are excellent, with the last, Shoot Out the Lights, among the greatest pop records ever made.
Since then, he's struggled to find his voice (literally and figuratively), and has had some regrettable associations with heavy-handed producers whose cobbled-together-in-the-studio approach never showed him at his best.
Mock Tudor has that live-in-the-studio feel of his early eighties records, and it just crackles. The songwriting is varied and of evenly high quality, and he's in fine form as a singer, using his bad vocal qualities to great effect. It's also a guitarist's guitarist's album, with Richard's usual never-a-cliche-to-be-found playing just blistering on top of Danny Thompson's powerful bass grooves.
And see him live.

Format: Audio CD
Even by Richard Thompson's stellar standards, this is a brilliant album. It hadn't come across it for some reason until a friend described it to me recently as "one of the great disregarded albums," which is a very good description. The songs are musically excellent and very singable in a terrific variety of styles, and played with the virtuosity you'd expect from Richard Thompson.

The songs also, of course, have exceptionally thoughtful and intelligent lyrics. There is a good deal of sadness, cynicism and well-directed bile (for example: "Bathsheba smiles.../She works the room/Air-kisses every victim twice/She spreads her joy around." That "victim" is a perfectly chosen word), but there are also some very warm insights into the conundrums of life and love like the gangster made human by love in Cooks Ferry Queen, or the rocky but lovely Sibella ("Sibella, we don't make sense together/But my heart's with you").

I think this album is a near-masterpiece of great songwriting and musicianship. It's very varied and enjoyable from start to finish and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

There really isn't a lot more that can be said about Richard Thompson. Terrific live, wonderful guitarist, prolific writer and critically praised. But still virtually ignored in his own country. Now I know he has a loyal following (I'm one of them), and I'm sure he makes a tidy living. I'm also sure he has no desire to be on the "Des O'Connor" show or on the front page of "Hello" magazine. But to quote Eddie Cochran "C'mon Everybody" - this guy has been writing songs for over thirty years and it would be easy to list at least 6 absolute classic songs he has written. So why don't more people know his work. It really cheeses me off (I thought of another phrase but I can't use it) when at every years end, some trendy critic (trendy = someone younger than me - not doing a days work) bangs on about how RT's latest album is the one of the best of the year. When previously he hasn't even mentioned it. So to quote Mr Townshend - "Lets see action" - start buying his records now. On this very album there is some very fine material, but the track called "Uninhabited Man" is a must hear - must buy classic. So don't wait till Steve Smarmy in "The Protector" newspaper or Samantha Smirk in "W" magazine tell you in 5 years what an essential song this is. Buy this album now, search his back catalogue tomorrow...That's All Amen, Close the Door.
