5.0 out of 5 stars A new star for 2006 1 Nov 2005
By Billy
Format:Audio CD
Stunning, just stunning. Make no bones, Teddy Thompson will be the name to look out for in 2006. This album is sensational from start to finish, 12 tracks of pure song-writing class, Separate Ways establishes Teddy Thompson as a star waiting to be catapulted into the stratosphere. It is, as they say, all killer no filler. The first half of this record is simply astounding and you’d have to go back as far as Dylan’s ‘Blood On The Tracks’ to better it. I genuinely cannot think of another album in recent memory that opens with so many strong songs and the quality never lets up. ‘Shine So Bright’ is an awesome opener – sparse backing, clever lyrics and a tempting little melody that gently pulls you in. It’s then followed by the rocking ‘I Should Get Up’ which leads into - anthem in waiting - ‘Everybody Move It’. For only his second full album Teddy sure knows his way round a song. As with all the songs here ‘Everybody Move It’ is catchy without ever being annoying, clever without ever being smug and simple without ever being too basic. The songs aren’t over produced or overly long, yet you’re never left wanting or expecting more. It is of course true that Teddy is of good song writing stock and being the son of Richard and Linda Thompson may go some way to explaining his brilliant knowledge of song craft, but Teddy isn’t trading on the family name and Separate Ways will mark him out as a star in his own right.

In my experience great albums are typically not those that grab you on first listening, but those that creep up on you and finally get under your skin until you can't stop playing them. This has been my experience with Teddy Thompson's second album Separate Ways. I knew of him as Richard Thompson's son and, in fact, saw him accompany his father for a few songs some years ago in an unmemorable concert in Belfast. To hear a record so complete in its musical and lyrical content was, therefore, a huge surprise. The thirteen songs (including one hidden) are all played immaculately, incorporating different melodic, rhythmic and catchy styles. Teddy himself has a rather flat but lonesome and infectious voice. His father plays sublime electric guitar on some of the tracks while Garth Hudson of The Band also helps out on keyboards. It's arguably the lyrics, however, that mark this album down as a classic. It's been a long time since I've heard a songwriter bring such fresh, if cynical and self-pitying, insights into personal relationships and their almost inevitable breakdown. Moreover, despite his mere thirty years, he provides searingly contemptuous comment on the mundanity of modern life. This album is the best I've heard for sometime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy Seperate Ways..NOW! 28 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
The reviews have said it all. This guy is going to be huge. There isn't a bad track on this album and the brilliant 'Altered State' will stay with you for a very long time to come. Not only can you here the quite wonderful Jackson Brown floating around in the beautiful atmospheric lyrics, but here and there on the album is Crowded House. Buy it now before everyone else won't be dissapointed. And after you do, uncork the wine, turn the lights down and just revel in the best album of 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original. Atmospheric. Emotive. 19 Dec 2005
By David
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I hadn't heard of this artist until I bought the sountrack from Brokeback Mountain on which Teddy makes two contributions. Probably as a result of that purchase, Amazon recommended this album. Not a duff track on it - not even the one you can only listen to after the last listed track (and several minutes of silence) have passed. I intend to play this album until my family beg for mercy - which, as they like it too, may be a very long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chip off the Old Block 8 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'm sure Teddy gets fed up with the Father/Son comparisons, but let's face, it was always going to happen. It can't be an easy thing being the offspring of such a brilliant songwriter and having to follow in Dad's footsteps - as I'm sure his cohorts Rufus and Martha would concur!
However, it is well worth anyone's time giving this album a severe listening. Teddy is not merely a Richard clone and the standard of songwriting displayed here is absolutely exemplary - as it was, though less consistently - on his previous solo outing.
I would guess that a lot of this album was written as a result of the passing of a relationship; God knows we've all been there! Sorry to hear that, but if it results in songs of the quality of I Wish It Was Over, Separate Ways and Altered States then maybe it was all worth it.
The family do appear - there is a lot of very familiar sounding guitar on the album. In fact, if I have a criticism it would be over the rather silly "hidden" track at the end - an attempt to shoe Mummy in to the album and not really necessary. Her albums are more than good enough to need this exposure!
Anyway, buy it. Not a bad moment throughout.

Dull and monotonus. A pity because he can perform well and has a beautiful voice when he likes. Very disappointing

Just too mainstream, there are far more interesting things going on in the undergrowth - for a comparison I recommend Nick Worrall. His album is FREE to download as well.
