REVIEW: THE AUSTRALIAN - Richard Thompson ELECTRIC
2/8/2013

Richard Thompson Electric

Richard Thompson's work is acclaimed by folk and rock critics, adored by a loyal fan-base and has earned him a string of awards.

Those acquainted with the LA-based Englishman's work wax lyrical about his invention and dexterity on both acoustic and electric guitar (he did, after all, make the Top 20 in Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time), his prowess as a songwriter, unique vocal delivery, excellence in live performance and his sardonic, self-effacing sense of humour.

Forty years after the release of his debut solo album, Thompson is more potent than ever, in every department.

RATING: 4 stars
