REVIEW: iTUNES - Richard Thompson ELECTRIC
2/14/2013

Richard Thompson Electric

There's atmosphere and air to spare on Electric - it's music that breathes, never feeling suffocated - and there's plenty of room for Thompson to spin out spiraling guitar leads, but the focus isn't on his peerless playing or even his sharply crafted songwriting, which is once again finely observed and richly detailed. No, the distinguishing character of Electric is its feel, how Miller creates a wide-open space for Thompson, a vista that showcases his crackling musicianship and sharp songs.

As good as the songs are, the distinguishing characteristic of Electric is its atmosphere, how the music jumps and breathes, how Miller has given Thompson his liveliest album in years and, on just sheer sonic terms, his best in a while, too.
