Electric ~ Richard Thompson

Never been a huge RT fan to be honest then I heard a little of dream attic and was hooked. What a guitarist. Great lyrics and a tight thumping band. Yes I may be too old to use cliches but some of the guitar style was almost Rory Gallaghesque. Perhaps what I most enjoyed was that Mr Thompson can switch from rocking out yet soulful songs Stuck on a Treadmill to the wistful Salford Sunday all in a breath. My Enemy is a great defiant song beautifully delivered. I have yet to find a filler on this CD - even the bonus disc works well - Tic Tac man is great fun - and we all know how useful bonus discs usually are ! Any way, I would hugely suggest you grab a listen - I'm off to see him play this… Read more

The film always haunted me, and would probably be an excellent anti-drugs message for all. From the train noise of station to Station to the disturbing, ghostly Sense of Doubt, this is a great slice of Bowie that is exciting, poppy, haunting and uplifting from track to track. Steal yourself to watch the film or at least listen to this
Different Gear, Still Speeding ~ Beady Eye

A range of styles and a mix that seems to allow Liam's voice more space than more recent offerings than the other band they all used to be in. Indie rock, acoustic ballads, fast paced thrash songs, broad rock songs - it's all here on what is generally an uplifting listening experience (with the possible exception of For Anyone which is a little bland). Only criticism is that in the good old days of 33 rpm albums of 5 tracks on each side , they wouldnt have room for any fillers and this would have become a blistering debut. You can already imagine the songs player loud and live. Liam has beaten "our kid" to the punch in the post O band. Better than many would have hoped, and a welcome treat.
