Performer Notes
  • By the time MR. LOVE & JUSTICE was released Billy Bragg had already been carrying the troubadour torch for 25 years. The qualities he's built his career on--folky roots, a sense of social justice, his knack with a durable tune and poignant lyrics-appear on this 2008 release in refined and mature form. Bragg has also incorporated a loose rock feel into his aesthetic, mixing pop, country, and Americana along with his singer-songwriter skills.
  • MR. LOVE & JUSTICE finds Bragg with a full band, playing ambling, relaxed rock (the single "I Keep Faith"), shuffling Bo-Diddley jams ("The Beach is Free"), or loping alt-country ("Farm Boy"). Long time fans who miss Bragg's man-and-his-guitar days should pick up the DELUXE edition, which includes a second disc of Bragg performing the entire album live in the studio, accompanied only by his guitar.
Professional Reviews
CMJ - "[T]here are more memorable songs here. The Celtic-y handclap-fed 'I Almost Killed For You' is a perfect example of his baldly confessional and simultaneously fun songs."

Paste (magazine) (p.55) - "[A] particular pleasure....It's a leap forward in maturity, depth and nuance....[With] a wiser, more playful approach than ever."

The Word (magazine) (p.100) - "Billy Bragg returns with one of the finest albums of his career; intimate, tender, genial....Bragg's voice sounds softer, deeper, warmer than ever before..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's Bragg's most musically accomplished collection, the caustic guitars of yore rarely surfacing, tempered by a plethora of styles, visiting Fairport Convention, Al Green, Rod Stewart and beyond."
