Rolling Stone (p.70) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Thompson's guitar firepower and parched wit are everywhere here....Loving archaeology, in every detail."Entertainment Weekly (p.137) - "[H]e has inhabited a dizzying number of personas...visionary hurdy-gurdy man, molten-hot electric-guitar hero, restless musical explorer, spiritual searcher, comedian." -- Grade: AUncut (p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Thompson is an exceptional guitar player, a fine songwriter, and a decent singer. Listening to RT's five discs, you get the sense that the guitar is his true voice."Dirty Linen (p.53) - "[Thompson is] a thoughtful man with rare insights into the human condition who, as it happens, is a pretty fair musician and songwriter, too."Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.45) - "The set makes a good case that he is the best guitar player in the world....but it makes an even better case for his songwriting."Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] true bonanza....Wit, pathos, humility and chops enough to sway Jimmy Page. Thompson had -- and still has -- it all."28.05219

The Wire (10/01, p.76) - "...A pungent antidote to formalism. It's rootsy and daring in equal measure, steeped in black American music history, yet utterly here and now."CMJ (8/20/01, p.14) - "...An organic avant-garde jazz vision..."JazzTimes (12/01, p.152) - "...Thompson's outfit reinvestigates familiar territory - robust hard-bop edged with squeally outbursts - with moderation and restraint..."0.2520081
