POUR DOWN LIKE SILVER was the last album Richard and Linda Thompson would release before beginning a self-imposed three-year retirement in order to join a communal Sufi Muslim sect. The cover photographs show the Thompsons dressed in traditional Muslim garb, and while lyrically the album offers few clear signs of the Thompsons’ new spiritual direction, the stark asceticism of the music marked a real change from the alcohol-fueled mood swings of I WANT TO SEE THE BRIGHT LIGHTS TONIGHT and HOKEY POKEY. The horns, accordion, and ancient instruments that had dotted Richard and Linda’s previous albums were used far more sparingly on POUR DOWN LIKE SILVER, and even Thompson’s usually astounding electric guitar solos were pared down in favor of an emotionally intimate, bare-wired approach that sounds alternately like a confession and a plea for guidance. Features some of the couple’s most beautiful and compelling songs while being the most severe of their albums.
