iTunes Review

John Doe has mastered the much-overlooked art of writing and performing songs that celebrate life’s sweetness without lapsing into greeting-card sentiment. From the opening surge of “Don’t Forget How Much I Love You,” Doe proves an artist doesn’t have to be in pain to deliver the goods. His backing group features Smokey Hormel, Don Was and Giant Sand’s Howe Gelb among the all-star cast, while guests — Patty Griffin, Jill Sobule, Cindy Wasserman — spice up a few tracks. Doe has always loved classic rock ‘n’ roll. His band X paid tribute to rock’s origins and tracks here like “Never Enough,” “Jump Into My Arms” and “Handsome Devil” intuitively observe rock ‘n’ roll history while still putting Doe’s unmistakable mark on everything he sings. He’s no slouch on ballads either. “Little Tiger” and “Sweetheart” are stripped-down songs that make for bedside lullabies. Keeper is a great, unforced collection of tunes that are as timeless as they are current.

I am a long time fan of John's solo work. This album has a beautiful mix of country twang, punk rock attitude, longing for love and lyrics only Mr. Doe can come up with.

As one of the founding members of the Los Angeles punk band X, John Doe was one of the most influential figures in American alternative rock during the early '80s, but when he launched a solo career in the early '90s, he decided to pursue a rootsy, country-rock direction instead of continuing with punk. X's latter-day albums exhibited a rockabilly and country influence, but it wasn't until Doe's 1990 debut, Meet John Doe, that he recorded a pure country album. Meet John Doe was recorded during a...
