Thank You Mr. Churchill

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Peter Frampton releases records so rarely that he's almost forced to plainly admit their themes in the titles: 2003's Now dealt with the present while its 2010 successor, Thank You Mr. Churchill, casts an eye toward the past, Frampton piecing together his history from WWII to modern times. Fittingly for a concept album so ambitious, Frampton has wound up with a heavy progressive rock record, roiling with dense riffs, segmented songs, and winding blues jams. Happily, he hasn't ignored his previous life as either a Tamla/Motown devotee or pop star, cutting the introspection and ambition with a handful of lighter moments -- such as the unashamed arena rocker "I'm ...

    Perfection!

    While no audio recording can compare to Peter Frampton's live performances, this one comes incredibly close. Unlike Fingerprints (which I also love), this CD has only one instrumental track - and that one song puts me in a whole other place. The vocals are spot on, the lyrics are moving, and the song he does with his son Julian is brilliant.

    I don't think Frampton has ever gotten the credit he so deserves. He is absolutely a guitar god.
