Great songs, superb guitar but...,
This review is from: THOMPSON, RICHARD - ELECTRIC : DELUXE EDITION (2CD) (Audio CD)
I bought this on 180g vinyl rather than CD because, it is a truth universally acknowledged, that analogue is better than digital.
These are great RT songs without question but they are saddled with a muddy, one-dimensional sound which make for a hard, even fatiguing, listen. The vinyl comes with a download voucher, so I tried digital version, but it's no better.
Compare this leaden soundscape with the recent RT broadcast "Goodbye Television Centre" which features many of these songs. The sound is superb and allows you to appreciate how wonderful these songs really are (and what an outstandingly brilliant guitarist Thompson is...but you knew that already).

Agree 100%. Thompson has been let down horribly by a "name" producer - Buddy Miller. See my own review - I saw RT live recently - these songs are great live, and need re-recording without the BM sound. What a numptie.
