"Aided immeasurably by bassist Taras Prodaniuk and drummer Michael Jerome Moore, Thompson's playing is simply awe-inspiring. Any serious discussion of the best guitarists in rock music must include Richard Thompson." - Darryl Smyers, Dallas Observer

"Thompson has always been an artist impossible to classify: An ironic dark poet's sensibility merged with a love of traditional European folk music, filtered through a master musician's understanding of jazz, blues and world music, 'Treadmill' is typical Thompson, with Scottish reel style electric guitar playing played like a jazz trio. He then proceeded to unleash a passionate 60-minute performance filled with tasty guitar picking, wry song lyrics and several blistering guitar solos - all done with Thompson's typical aplomb." - Mark Jones, Examiner
