    With Keeper, Doe beautifully balances a rocker's heart and a poet's soul.

    Just about every songs clicks. [Oct 2011, p.84]

    Optimism hasn't always been a hallmark of Doe's endeavors, but it ought to be said that this less-dour Doe is easy to enjoy.

    John Doe simply doesn't make bad records, but not all of them are as heartfelt and comfortable as Keeper, and the title is apt--this captures a great singer and songwriter on a hot streak, and you'd have to go back to his 1990 solo debut to hear a John Doe album that's as eclectic, accomplished, and satisfying as this.

    Doe follows his excellent 2009 collaboration with The Sadies, Country Club, with a scruffier set of rockers.

    Keeper gets repetitive at times, but Doe's passion never sounds rote.
