Richard Thompson's position as Britain's premier chronicler of pain, loving and most things dark, was on the line here. This was his first album minus wife of a decade Linda--hers a voice guaranteed to lift any music--and he had much to prove. Thompson did it with considerable panache and a trusted band of old mates. The collection is a two-headed demon, combining rock with an acoustic intimacy. The songs are of a vintage, including with "A Poisoned Heart And A Twisted Memory," "Hand Of Kindness" and his greatest ever folk song, "Devonside." Hungry music that should be force fed to those who have not yet discovered their Thompson appetite.
