Album Review: Billy Bragg, "Mr. Love And Justice" by

March 26th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

First new album from British indie-folk rock balladeer (and noted commie) Billy Bragg. Not the most striking album maybe, but the instrumentation is nice, the songs are driving, wry and witty and Bragg’s smart, rich brogue is reminiscent of Morrissey here. Billy Bragg is barely to the right of Lenin, and his lyrics often reflect that, which can be annoying, but mostly it’s ok.

Play: 1, 2+ (Harmonica! Clapping!), 3 (nice lyrics), 4++ (Socialism, yay), 8++(gentlest socialist song ever, 10++(protest song)

    Nice review. Billy Bragg is currently offering Free Billy Bragg Tracks on his site.

    I have blogged about it on my blog.

  3. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
