Matos On Thompson

Michelangelo Matos reviews Richard Thompson's latest album, 1000 Years of Popular Music, for Slate:

What's most interesting—and surprising—about the rock-era material Thompson tackles is that he usually falls flat on exactly the songs you'd figure a white, middle-aged Englishman would excel at (Squeeze's "Tempted," the Beatles' "It Won't Be Long," neither of which he has the voice for) and aces what would, on paper, look to be the disc's most curious selections: Prince's "Kiss" and "Oops! I Did It Again."
