Still going strong,
This review is from: Action Packed - The Best Of The Capitol Years (Audio CD)
This latter-day compilation is a rare example of an artist who continues to turn out high quality material in middle age. Thompson's folk influences are evident, but it's a collection that ought to appeal to anyone who appreciates thinking-man's popular music. 'I Misunderstood,' for example, is the type of recording you might expect from Crowded House, while there are a few songs reminiscent of the so-called power-pop bands of the new wave era. Nevertheless, Thompson is at his most compelling when he accompanies himself on guitar on the menacing 'Cold Kisses.' There are a few instant offerings, the best of which is 'Feel So Good' but this is a varied and highly enjoyable collection of intelligent, thought-provoking songs.

RT is a proper English songwriter. He is so distinctive in his writing and as a guitarist has the most original sound and style. I have followed him since the first Fairport album and jut love his output which is never less than rewarding to listen to.
