Love And Blood is the tenth album by Australian musician and singer-songwriter Shane Nicholson released in August 2017 via Lost Highway Records.

The cathartic intensity that Shane Nicholson invested in his 2015 record Hell Breaks Loose – the ‘divorce album’ that is arguably his finest work – meant that following it up was going to be a challenging business. Where to go after such stark personal confessions and such a creative highpoint?

The upheaval with ex-wife Kasey Chambers is now in his rear-view mirror, thus this album is more outward-looking and even humorous in lyrical sentiment. Nicholson has mostly put aside the sparse acoustic balladry (the pleasant “All I Know” being an exception) in favour of up-tempo, instrumentally busy, occasionally bombastic adult-rock. Indeed, Springsteen-ish opener “Safe” is a dead-ringer for something from Ryan Adams’ latter-day 1980s-influenced albums.

Always one for a good chorus, Nicholson wheels out some unsubtle but catchy anthems with “Driving Me Mad” and “God’s Own Army”. The best moments come with the pacey, plugged-in country-rock – “Song For A Sad Girl” has certain flavours of Steve Earle, while “Even If You Were The One”, with its Bryan Adams feel, shows off Nicholson’s undoubted melodic gifts. He remains one of Australia’s most sincere singer-songwriters.

This album is on black vinyl, pressed in Europe via Lost Highway.
