Thompson calls Sweet Warrior "a war record, not just political war but also domestic war or relationship war." So the explicitly political "Dad's Gonna Kill Me" ("Dad" being Baghdad) sits alongside stories of divorce and infidelity ("Mr. Stupid," "Johnny's Far Away"). It's also his first electric record since 2003, and features collaborations with Danny Thompson, Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins, Judith Owen and more.
