As the son of Richard and Linda Thompson, Teddy has quite a legacy to maintain, and over four albums thus far Thompson has proven up to the task. His voice is more naturally musical than his dad's - and every bit as mournful as them both - and his musical decisions are rooted in his family’s folk history but not indebted to it. He’s now learning to smile as he delivers the bad news. A Piece of What You Need sounds like an optimist’s album

Teddy Thompson’s album is appropriately, maturely, angsty.

The Sun August 15, 2008 asked Thompson why he titled the album "A Piece of What you Need. He replied: "It was written out of being slightly frustrated at the state of music. As a musician of substance (I don't mean to big myself up), as a non-pop star, you look at what's on the radio and what's playing in people's cars and you find what they really like is simple, non-challenging stuff.

Teddy Thompson has taken a more user-friendly approach on A Piece of What You Need, but he hasn't sold his soul or lost what makes him special along the way, and this is a clever, adventurous, and thoroughly engaging exercise in smart pop that's as thoughtful as it is pleasurable.

we want And get a PIECE of what we need Is this what we really want, Background music from a restaurant? Spare me, It’s doing in my head Drop dead gorgeous teen Singing pages from her diary So bad you’d kick her out of bed Break down the stupid wall Stop doing what you’re told And don’t believe a thing you see Red Light, drop that ball Stop getting everything you want And get a PIECE of what you need. Stop getting everything you want And get a PIECE of what you need Oh say can’t you see we’re kinda, sorta living free Staring into space, bye bye human race Break down the stupid wall Let’s stop doing what we’re told And don’t believe a thing you see Red Light, drop that ball Let’s stop getting everything. we want And get a PIECE of what we need Is this what we really want, Background music from a restaurant?

But here he’s going for something grander – A Piece Of What You Need is the most delectable Roy Orbison-inspired LP since Chris Isaak’s 1985 debut, Silvertone, but this record is way less slavish.

Isn’t it always a bit nice to listen to an album that is a bit sad, but not childishly depressing, or about loneliness, but not 14 year old girl loneliness, and a bit angry, but not long-haired teenage punk angry. Teddy Thompson’s album is appropriately, maturely, angsty. My favorite song is “What’s This?!!”, a song about a person being surprised that they are happy.“What's this, what's this, am I happy or somethingOh shit, oh shit, am I happy or somethingIs it you, Is it me, is it us, is it "we"Uh oh!” Which soon turns to, “And the voices in my head come nowSaying this'll never work, get outAnd the voices in my head are loudSaying this'll never work get outI DON'T WANNA HEAR IT!” I also highly recommend “Don’t Know What I Was Thinking” to a person with identical taste as myself. And “Can’t Sing Straight” reminds me of Morphine. The band, not the drug, it in no way reminds me of the drug. Not that I would know.
