    That Richard Thompson has conjured these fascinatingly enigmatic yet clearly deeply personal words and melodies to match such refined, uncompromising music is a testament to his indisputable power as his generation's sturdiest warhorse.

    13 Rivers is a sparse, raging and noisy record. [Oct 2018, p.37]

    The album is a tight yet tensile affair, that shows the old dog still knows how to learn a few tricks with scholarly shrewdness.

    Driven along by a renewed sense of urgency and purpose, this may be Richard Thompson's most creative album in decades. [Oct 2018, p.92]

    The nearest to a rock record Thompson has ever made. ... A very good album. [Oct 2018, p.83]

    Pondering life and death, happiness and despair, movement and stagnation, Thompson writes as someone who knows he has more years behind him than ahead, though he sings with an arched eyebrow and an appreciation for the irony in trading youth for wisdom.

    For all of its typical craftsmanship you can't help but wish it had more moments like the stark despair of My Rock, My Rope. [Oct 2018, p.119]
