Soul Deeper... Songs from the Deep South

Love and Fear is the ninth studio album by Australian rock musician, Jimmy Barnes. It peaked at #22, Barnes' lowest charting album, and his only album not to peak in the top 5. It was certified Gold by ARIA for sales of 35,000 in Australia. [1]


Love and Fear purged a lot of demons that had been plaguing Barnes for many years. He confronted issues that he had avoided by being on tour and by drinking and taking drugs. [2] Although receiving lukewarm commercial and critical reception at the time of its release, Love and Fear has grown in stature over the ensuing decade and is now one of Barnes' most highly regarded albums. [3]

"Love and Hate" and "Thankful for the Rain" were released as singles, but both charted outside the top 50.
