Please don't shoot out my ears, Richard
It has been said that "Shoot Out The Lights", the last album by Richard & Linda Thompson, is also the best. I can understand the fact that it IS the ultimate divorce album, but some songs are really annoying. I used to like it a lot as a little kid...but trying to listen to it again at 16, I don't have the patience to let it grow on me, and, as I said, a few songs (especially "The Back Street Slide") give me a headache. (Hey! If this is such a popular album, how come I'm the first to write a review about it???) So, I guess "Shoot Out The Lights" is the most popular splitsville album, but that's all I'm giving it credit for. It is a popular album, rated high in Rolling Stone magazine, but the songs on this album are nothing to write home about.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
