Sometimes even a legend just wants to have fun. Having gradually achieved his lofty position as a titan of British folk-rock and as one of Britain's finest songwriters, Richard Thompson allows his instincts as a sublime guitarist to dominate this casually brilliant double album. Separated into distinct electric and acoustic programmes, the "voltage-enchanced" Disc 1 gives us generous doses of a rockin' Richard, featuring some of his most extroverted string-bending in years and some terrific songs, capped by "Razor Dance" and an acid "Put It There Pal". On the "nude" second disc, Thompson unplugs to reel off some of the most beautiful guitar filigree and keening acoustic leads imaginable, focusing on a programme largely devoted to ballads. As always, his ability to couple timeless musical forms with trenchant commentary gives these songs power--try the closing "Woods of Darney", set during World War I, which combines an anti-war message, a love song, and a ghost story in its concise verses. --Sam Sutherland

Format: Audio CD
If you don't already know of Richard Thompson, buy this album. Having said that, it's probably not his best overall (Mock Tudor is that, IMHO), but this has some of his very best songs (and he's done some good ones in his time!). This two-disc set is electric on the first disc and 'unplugged' on the second.
From Razor Dance's up-tempo relationship-slashing to the scariness of looking through your lover's letters from old flames while she's out on Cold Kisses, this is Thompson at his darkest and sharpest. All to lovely and/or catchy tunes and playing to kill for.
Mention should also be made of Danny Thompson's (no relation) contribution on upright bass, especially on the haunting (!) Ghost of You Walks.
Stand-out track for me is Put it There Pal. Just hope it wasn't written about you: "You shot me down with friendly fire / The rope that you threw me was made of barbed wire" and a bile-spitting guitar coda that shows why he's considered among the very finest - it'll make you want to give up playing yours in despair! The album's not (quite) all doom and gloom. It is by turns touching and delicate, and aggressive as hell. Imagine a very English Neil Young and you'll be in the right - country, at least.
And this is not even his best album!

Format: Audio CD
Without a doubt one of my favourite albums of all time, first of all in its versatility and second of all in the quality and quantity of the songs on here.

The Album is a 2-disc masterpiece by folk-rock legend Richard Thompson, split into electric (Voltage Enhanced) and acoustic (Nude) with some songs featuring on both sides leaving you to wonder which version you like better. Voltage Enhanced kicks off with Razor Dance, about a relationship breakup, "Dark hand over my heart" and "Hide it away" show as usual Thompson's darker side which is never absent from one of his albums. "Business on you" appears as some sort of odd antique collector and "Bank vault in heaven" is reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix's version of "All along the watchtower" with its frequent guitar licks and brilliant guitar solo. This side ends with the beautiful and haunting "The ghost of you walks" which anyone can agree is astonishing. The second album has some very nice songs especially "Cold kisses", "Sam Jones" and the "Woods of Darney", another this time horrifically sad song. Again "Hide it away" and "Razor dance" appear, but the version of the latter is much better in the live recording with Teddy Thompson in Celtschmerz. The others are songs are good, but not classics.

Overall a brilliant album. The good songs definitely outweigh the average ones.

Format: Audio CD
Quite simply, this is unequalled! If you like truly great singer song writers such as Randy Newman or Elvis Costello, you'll soon realise you've come to the right CD. The poetic lyrics that say so much in such a sparse way, the emotive music, the stark vocals - it's all here. I'm talking mainly about the acoustic disc, but then 50% of this is so superior to 100% of any other. This isn't for the heavy guitar RT lovers. It's for people who recognise that the very BEST music is always going to be essentially emotional, and the impact of this never fades.

Great stuff. Richard's electric guitar is electrifying. He's on top form here. In this double set, CD 1 is a louder version than CD 2 which is a little softer or more acoustic containing acoustic versions of two songs off CD 1. This was one of three albums featured on the Best Of Capitol Years. The others were Mirror Blue and Tudor which I've bought..
