Billy Bragg - The Million Things That Never Happened (Cooking Vinyl)
FROM HIS earliest days with ‘The Milkman of Human Kindness’ and ‘Between The Wars’, few artists have possessed Bragg’s ability to write songs possessing intelligent political commentary and a deep, humane, empathy.
Those qualities are on abundant display on his 12th solo album, which may be one of the finest things he has created over the past 20 years. Centering on themes of the post-Trump world, the rise of the alt.right, authoritarian regimes, and internet trolls on one hand, there are also meditations on the need for connection and to reach out; to see things from outside your own perspective; the redeeming power of love; and the importance of family and friends.
