Mixing pop and politics...this is a great album; plus some cracking songs exploring the human heart. For example, on the song `M for Me' the topic remains the importance of relationships and compassion, as he sings the delightful couplet: ''I've got friends who are telling me they're living in clover, but lose the c for commitment and the l for love and it's over baby''.
The stand-out track on the album is `I Keep Faith', superbly backed by Robert Wyatt. The band gel far better here than on English, Half English.
This is Bragg's best since 1991's Don't Try This At Home.
