  1. Front Parlor Ballads is built from modest stuff, but the finished product is as strong as anything Thompson has recorded in the past ten years.
  2. Even when he turns down the volume, he never tones down the creative intensity.
  3. While lyrically his songs are top-drawer, Thompson's guitar prowess is also noteworthy. [13 Aug 2005]
