First off, this album is fantastic. It comes with a DVD with two live tracks and a video. It has been said that this album is not recommended for first time Murphys fans but this was my first Murphys album and I can't stop listening to it! It'll have you shaking your fists, jumping around and singing, and why not, eh? Walkaway, Gonna be a Blackout Tonight and album's closer, Kiss Me I'm #!@*faced will have you chanting. It's like the Cranberries on Steroids. 10/10

First thing is this is a great album. However there are no "Fightstarter Karaoke's" or "Boys On The Dock's" so I wouldn't recomend this to people who want to start getting into the Dropkick Murphys as it isn't representative of their early work. This is an album for Long Term fans who will appreciate the changes. Newcomers will listen to this and think the band are junk which would be a stupid thing to think. With this album they have moved on from the usual street anthems found on their 1st and 2nd albums and have further explored their folk side. There's more of of an attempt to mould punk and folk together rather than "heres a punk song" and "heres a folk song". The rockier stuff is also slower than on the first three albums. Highlights include a cover of The Fields of Athenry and an unrecorded Woody Guthrie song, "Gonna be a Blackout Tonight" (which I'm sure sounds different to what Woody had in mind)! It even comes with a bonus DVD with live footage a video and a trailer to a new DVD coming out. SO GET THIS!

This is probably the best punk/rock album of the year so far. It is that good! The album is a great mix of folk, rock, punk and celtic genres. Highlights include the excellent "Gonna be a blackout tonight" and "as One" but nealry every track is brilliant. It has been said that this album is'nt for first time DKM listeners, I disagree, if you like punk you should love this album, I do!

Format: Audio CD
Having bought the DKM live album and 'Sing Loud, Sing Proud', this was initially a bit of a disappointment. Whereas 'Sing Loud...' had been a frenzied speed'n'Guinness-in-the-union-hall type affair, 'Blackout' focuses less on the intense punk ethos and more on the 'traditional' Irish folk spirit - slightly sentimental and a lot less political and, well, less in yer face. That said, once you get your head round it, it's a rewarding album and has every bit of passion and emotion you'd expect from the DKMs. Produced more as a rock album than a punk album, the singalong choruses and the against-the-odds combative tone are still intact but come across with more emotional range and depth than the raw intensity of their earlier albums.
If 'Sing Loud' is when you get to the pub after the game, 'Blackout' is kicking out time and staggering down the street with your boys. Good stuff.

I loved this album from the second I first played it. Every track on here is just superb, and the album is packed full of great, singalong tunes. You've got the trad Irish classics in 'Fields of Athenry' and 'Black Velvet Band' on here, as well as DKM live favouries like 'Worker's Song' and 'Walk Away', and the utterly classic 'The Dirty Glass'.

Personally I think this is the best of all DKM albums. It is more consistent that anything they have done before or since. I know a lot of fans recommend their earlier work as an intro to the Dropkicks, but I would alwas recommend this one.

If you only buy one DKM album, make it 'Blackout'.
