The first thing you notice about this album is that Floggin Molly are obviously very accomplished Irish folk musicians. They make punk Irish music with a full traditional set up from both styles, plus some. Included are the sounds of the Fiddle, Tin Wistle, Uilleann pipes, Accordion, Bodhran Drum , Electric Guitar, Drums, Banjo and something called a Bazouki which I've never heard of but which is apparently a bit like a mandola.
The opening and title track of the album sounds like an Irish folk song, only at a rip roaring pace, punked up, and seemingly not dropping a note.
What follows ranges from the almost acoustic 'If I Ever Leave This World Alive', to the very punk 'Cruel Mistress', and to the very traditional 'Death Valley Queen'. There is even a cover of Dubliner Pete St. John's 1970's hit, 'The Rare Old Times,' though obviously done at twice the speed.
So is it any good?
Yes, fantastic band, great tunes, traditional, modern and interesting at the same time. This album really does grab your attention. The only thing I would say against it is that it can be a bit 'samey'. This isn't too much of a problem though, as it is so good.

I grew up with two of the most famous irish bands played to me on a regular basis. Those two were the pogues and the dubliners. When I've tried to introduce these two to my friends one of the biggests problems they have especially with the dubliners is they can't get into the music. There isn't too much irish mainstream music around especially not these days but Flogging Molly have changed all that. They are instantly catchy and even pop idol fanatics will be able to admit these guys (and one girl) are the real deal.
They bring back that feeling of music as an experience and when you finish listening to the cd you may havetohave a wee rest before starting it up again.
Brilliant cd from an enormously talented band. Without even seeing them you know this would be one of the best live bands you could hope to see. So my advice is to buy the album this summer and kick back with a bottle of magners in the sun and dream that more bands could be this good.

As a keen fan of the Pogues to find a band that are even better is a wonderful feeling. This album has it all, from footstomping, 100 mph singalong tracks, to more controlled ballards. To listen to an album for the first time and enjoy every track and yet after a number of listenings not to have a favourite, shows the range of this excellent group. Enough of these words - I'm off to listen to it again.

This is the newest release from the great band Flogging Molly. After releasing two albums before ("Alive Behind The Green Door" and "Swagger") they are at the peak of their proficiency. They play Irish Punk Rock at its best and this album offers a wide variety of songs, from rather punky and fast tracks (like Cruel Mistress) to very quiet songs (like the last song The Son Never Shines (On Closed Doors)).
All of the songs are awesome, I especially love Drunken Lullabies (a happy drinking song which spreads good vibrations) and Death Vally Queen (nice song, which sonds a bit Egyptian at the beginning). The way they are playing their instruments show, that they are really good musicians, which we can't say from most of the punk bands.
Flogging Molly reach this variety through using quite a lot of instruments: guitars (electric as well as accoustic), bass, drums, violine, trumpet, accordian, banjo, mandolin and two typical irish folk instruments: tin whistle and bodhran which make the record smooth and lovely even though it's undeniable punk influences. That's why you will often feel like you are somewhere in Ireland and that's a nice feeling!

This album is probably the best album I have ever bought. I you are into The Pogues and you like your punk this is the album for you! From the moving intro to "What's Left Of The Flag" to the hyperactive "Drunken Lullabies" this album has it all. After hearing Drunken Lullabies on the radio for the first time I was intrigued by the sound but did not quite fully understand it. Now after seeing the band live and buying all the albums that they have ever released I understand what they are all about.... just plain auld fashioned fun. Buy this album you'll not be disappointed. It's a modern day punk CLASSIC!!!

I love Celtic punk and Flogging Molly seems to be the best celtic-punk band of today. Similar to the Pogues in style and in lyrics but with a more modern electric guitar sound added on top. They may be Americans singing in fake Irish accents but that doesnt bother this Englishman at all. I loved the album and at the moment I am listening to it quite often.

Having heard one of the tracks from this album on a film recently I thought I'd give this a go and I am so glad I did. `Drunken Lullabies' is one of those albums that is truly infectious and which leaves you with a big grin plastered over your face. Flogging Molly can best be described as Irish punk folk, but they aren't too heavy and the folk side is perfectly balanced with the punk. The album opener `Drunken Lullabies' shows you what a treat you are in for, with it's thumping drums, addictive fiddle and punk/folk vocals you are soon captivated and stamping your feet along with wild abandon. The rest of the album continues in much the same vein, but one of the gentler tracks is `If I Ever Leave this World Alive' which is a beautiful ballad with poignant lyrics, and a gentle build-up throughout the song where more instruments gradually come in, until the song reaches it's crescendo. Magnificent stuff. This album manages to offer a good mix of music that lifts the spirits and leaves you wanting more. There is also a bonus track at the end of a live performance that show their live audiences love them as much as you'd expect after hearing this. This band is well worth a try.
