Love & Justice Please, tell me what am I to do Everything you told me I found out none of it was true. I'm looking for some answers To these problems I face Desertion should mean disgrace So tell me do I have a case. And I know that nothing is forever But still though I want to make the effort So he knows you just can't walk away. Love & Justice I ask you, is it really fair If all of that commitment Just vanishes in the air? Feel I'm on a one way ticket To the end of the line It won't stop the children crying But I want some justice this time.
Coming six years after England, Half English, 2008’s Mr. Love & Justice displays British political troubadour Billy Bragg recharged and at his most musical to date. His ongoing association with the Blokes - his steady backing band, featuring legendary keyboardist Ian McLagan (Small Faces/ Faces) - lifts his music to inspired, previously untouched plateaus. The extra musical cushions allow Bragg to settle back and sing with less stridency, invoking the sensitive side that’s often been overshadowed by his harsh, nasal tone and the extremes of his piercing electric guitar. Here, he embraces an acoustic for If You Ever Leave and employs legendary Soft Machine vocalist Robert Wyatt for the haunting opening track, I Keep Faith. Politics still simmer within the solemn marching drama of O Freedom and the overwrought puns of The Johnny Carcinogenic Show.
