Editorial Reviews

Following his Grammy Award-winning instrumental album, 2006's Fingerprints, Peter Frampton returns with Thank You Mr. Churchill (A&M/New Door/UMe), his most personal collection to date. The 11-song set, co-produced and co-engineered by Frampton, features the legendary guitarist at his most incisive lyrically as he tackles the battles that wage within us and the outside forces that rage around us. His searing guitar work flows over every song, setting the mood. "This album is very autobiographical," Frampton says. "It starts with my birth, which I thank Mr. Churchill for bringing my father back from the Second World War." Recorded at his home studio in Cincinnati, Churchill is deeply intimate, weaving tales of loss, love and redemption and the lessons learned along the way. Churchill also includes Frampton's reflective take on troubling world events, including the Wall Street bailout ("Restraint") and even the tragic case of Megumi Yokota, a Japanese girl kidnapped more than 30 years ago by North Korea ("Asleep at the Wheel"). Frampton wrote all tracks on Churchill, penning many with longtime collaborator Gordon Kennedy. His co-producer/co-engineer, Chris Kimsey, was the engineer on Frampton's first solo record, 1972's Wind of Change. Co-engineer Don Gunn (Death Cab For Cutie) also contributes to Churchill. Guests include Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron, who also played on Fingerprints, and the legendary Funk Brothers, who appear on Frampton's Motown homage, "Invisible Man." Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British teen band, the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive, is one of the top selling live records of all time.

While I have enjoyed Peter Frampton's music for (many) years, I have equally admired the PERSISTENCE and PASSION he brings to his craft. Like all of us in our lives and careers, Mr. Frampton has experienced the up's and downs ,the peaks and valleys, but thru it all, he just keeps getting better as an artist. With the release of "Thank You Mr. Churchill" I will now need to add the word PERSPECTIVE in what I admire about Mr. Frampton.
This album is autobiographical in nature and deeply personal. He writes about his past, the future and topic's he feels strongly about which only 60 years on this earth, 45 of them as a professional musician can lend perspecitve to.
For you guitar lovers out there, don't worry, he delivers these strong lyrics with the same musical expertise/quality that won him a Grammy a few years back on the all instrumental "Fingerprints" CD.

I'd recommend you purchase the entire CD or album (yes it's on vinyl), If not, (AND THIS WASN'T EASY!) my top three favorites to download for a taste would be "I want it back", "Road to the Sun", "Vaudeville Nanna and the Banjolele". For you instrumental lovers, you will not be dissapointed with "Suite Liberte', A. Megumi and B. Huria Watu.
For me personally, this is Peter Frampton's strongest overall effort in a long and successful career. As I mentioned above, he just keeps getting better!! Lucky for us!

Rarely does an album come along of this caliber. From start to finish it is simply amazing. The rocking track with Peter's son Julian, the track with legendary Motown Funk Brothers, Matt Cameron on drums (Pearl Jam / Soundgarden) throughout, and even the instrumental track simply make me speechless. This is classic Frampton evolving and reflecting on the ups and downs in his life. The guitar work is right up there with all the legends. Do yourself a favor and pick up this album. You will not be disappointed. Best album since Frampton Comes Alive!

Over the years Peter Frampton has gotten his share of the "raw deal" in putting out music. Ever since he released 'Frampton Comes Alive' that seemed to be his benchmark for every other release that he would ever do and fans of that album just wouldn't forgive him if he even tried to put out something different. Shame on all those who haven't followed Peter Frampton over the years and stopped listening to him shortly thereafter and his live release or even the 'I'm in You' release. Was every release stellar, probably not, but so much was based on the music at the time. With his self-titled release in 1994 and further releases I believe he has matured and just gotten better. He is such an underrated guitar player and when you listen to his previous release 'Fingerprints' you'll have a better appreciation of his guitar talent. With 'Thank You Mr. Churchill' Peter Frampton puts out a stellar effort. From start to finish it is just a great and solid rock album. Forget your pre-conceived notions about Peter Frampton's long blond-haired live glory days from 1976. He is so much more than that as an artist and always has been and this albums just proves that. If you like Peter Frampton then this is one album to surely pick up. It's a keeper and worth every star of the five star rating.

His last album (all instrumental) won a Grammy. If thats the case then this one could be "the one" that gets people to say did you get the new Peter Frampton album? who what? Peter has delivered a fine new album of songs hot guitar solo's. I doubt highly that this album will get any airplay on the dinosouar FM . Too bad this is the kind of album that should play hard rocking mixed ballad songs could this album return Peter to playing madison square? I hope so but only if he wants it. In the past 6 months we have seen a return of Eric Clapton with Steve Winwood, Jeff Beck has been brought back to the spotlight they rose Hendrix from the dead giving him a top selling album and now Peter is up at bat. I hope this is the return of the guitar player
A solid 4 star album and perhaps his strongest ever Studio album bar none. I own 20 of them.

PS check out the guitar solo on "asleep at the wheel" and then the absolutely wonderful ballad that follows it. Where in the hell have we all been (LOL)

I have been a fan of Peter Frampton since his Humble Pie days. What a loss it was to loose their other singer-guitarist, Steve Marriot a few years ago, who was also prominent in the Small Faces. Back to Peter. I had to put up with mp3's while waiting for my CD to arrive. I have nearly all of Peter's commercial releases. I have felt for most of that time that he is a guitarist's guitarist. In his biggest hits the lyrics are great pop-rock with great guitar hooks and riffs, but what I love most about his playing is his solos. They are jazzy and very complex. Like so many people I loved Frampton Comes Alive and have both LP and CD copies of it. The material he did immediately following the mega selling live album was very much a let down and ushered in a low point in his career and personal life. Specifically I mean "I'm In You" and the "Sgt. Pepper's" abomination with the Bee Gee's as "Immediately after". Some of Frampton's 1980's-2000's albums are actually very good, but few people even know of them because they got no airplay. "Comes Alive II" was actually pretty good, it is just that it concentrated on his newer less known material". I have nearly every original official Frampton album , from his 1972 first "Wind of Change" to 2010 "Thank You Mr. Churchill", The new album, Thank You Mr Churchill is the best he's put out since Frampton Comes Alive. From the standpoint of his guitar playing and maturity and choice of playing techniques, it is probably his finest work of art ever.

I've never heard Peter play with such fire. During the solos if I forget that I'm listening to Frampton, he sounds like a combination of Al Di Meola and Eric Clapton. Peter is much less bluesy than Eric of course. The hard rocking songs have great power chords too. His backing band is solid too.
