Unrivalled, Unique, Second to None!
on 10 September 2010
Richard Thompson can do no wrong in my eyes! Sometimes I wonder why I like him so much. On reflection, perhaps it's because he, and his music is different from anything else currently available within 'rock' music. (I use the term 'rock' loosely). He is unrivalled, unique, second to none!! This is simply a wonderful CD from
Richard Thompson. The songs are excellent, each with its own story to tell and the blend of instruments works really well. In addition,not many people would take the risk of recording a 'live' album showcasing all new songs.
Personal favourites are 'Here Comes Geordie', Demons In Her Dancing Shoes', Big Sun Falling In The River','Sidney Wells' (a modern day murder ballad) and 'A Brother Slips Away'. If you are a guitar player just listen to the playing on this CD and be amazed. If you like good music, great lyrics sung clearly and exemplary playing, give yourself a treat and buy Dream Attic right now!
