Let Love Rule (Liberation Records)
The tenth album from the veteran Aboriginal singer-songwriter is full of tender and touching songs. Big-hearted and unflinchingly honest, Roach sings about both heart-breaking tragedy and uplifting salvation. Folk, country-swing and soul-gospel characterise his compositions, with guest appearances from an indigenous children’s choir and the soulful Aboriginal singer Emma Donovan. Reviewed in #125.
