Customer Review

on 6 September 2007
I much preferred Front Parlour Ballads personally, that is not to say I don't like the 'rocking' out Richard Thompson, I love it. The quality of songs is little below par here. I loved 'Poppy Red' and 'Dad's Gonna Kill Me'. I haven't heard the album anywhere near enough yet, but it's not going to trouble 'Front Parlour Ballads', 'Mock Tudor' and 'Rumor and Sigh' as my 3 personal faves. Saw him live a few weeks ago, totally amazing!. He played most of this album and was a bit short on 'greatest hits' considering how long and varied his career has been, but the guitar playing was stunning, a totally unique blend of modal folk scales and blues/rock. Richard Tompson is one of those 'best kept secrets' of British music, like John Cale. Happy to still play tiny venues and get a genuine reaction from fans. Not his best album, but you could do alot worse than buy this album.
