3.0 out of 5 stars Lazy Teddy ?, 17 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bella (Audio CD)
As a long-time fan of Teddy Thompson, I can't help but have a great sense of expectation with every new release.

I've had this CD since the week of its release but have held off posting a comment until now, in case my opinion changed. I'm afraid it hasn't.

While it is a most competent album, the phrase 'I've heard it all before' still springs to mind. The themes of the songs have been used by him previously and I wondered if he was a one-trick-pony or just lazy (or contractually obligated). Given his obvious talent, I'm opting for either of the latter options. While other reviewers have seen it as a change in direction, I see it as thematically stuck in the same groove.

For anyone coming to Teddy for the first time, this album will no doubt be most satisfying and enjoyable. For fans, maybe not so. Buy it and make up your own mind. When I'm in the mood, I'll be turning to earlier releases to play. Let's hope he finds some new inspiration for his next outing.
