The Real McKenzies come from Canada and like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly play punk music with a strong folk-traditional music influence. The peculiarity of the Real McKenzies is that their main influence is Scottish music and they have got double bagpipes integrated in every song. Needless to say bagpipes play a big part in the sound of the band... The best tracks are probably the opener "Nessie", the traditional "Flower of Scotland" and "Swords of a thousand men" (the latter also played by Skyclad on their album "Folkemon"). However, the album is really consistent and all tracks are more than average. A very good album ("only" four stars because it is just 30-minute long and there is still room for improvement).

Being a fan of the Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, The Real McKenzies begged a listen. I've had this album for almost a year now. At first I wasn't so stuck on it, probably because it wasn't quite what I was expecting. When I got over my bias and listened to it for what it was, it grew on me in no time and is now one of my driving-to-work-albums, which is always at hand in the car.

The main difference to DKM and FM is that RMcK are much more of a raw band, the live recording apparent. There are a couple of tracks I don't bother with, like Bitch off the Money, but for the most part they are the fast, catchy tunes you'd expect from a folk/punk band. Personal favourites are Lassie/Roaming in the Gloaming, Flower of Scotland (trad.) and Nessie. There's a cover of Tenpole Tudor's Swords of a Thousand Men, which is good to hear again.

A good album but you need to be in the mood, but when you are you may well play it a few times in succession. All in all, good enough that I went out and bought the other albums. As mentioned, at about half hour it's over a little too quickly, but this is a minor gripe.

Quit the Day Job 29 May 2002
By VPerry_co_dutchess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of the three celtic influenced punk, Real McKenzies, Dropkick Murphys & Flogging Molly that I'm familiar with, these guys are my top choice. High energy, joyous, double bagpipes integrated in every song. Best songs: Flowers of Scotland - an acoustic traditional plea, Swords of a thousand Men - anthematic & sounds like half of Vancouver's doing backup vocals, Wild Cattieyote and Nessie - great opener. Great vocals throughout. Four stars cause there's room for improvement & I hope they can quit their day job's and focus on this real deal music.

just plan and simple..........good cd 24 Jun 2003
By Chad Neely - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i have always loved the more traditional celtic music, and have been somewhat dissappointed in the new wave of punk / celtic fushion. However, this band does a great job at blending the two styles together. These guys hae a good sense of humor along with honorable pride for their hertiage. This is just a fun cd, good lyrics about drinking, fighting, and scottish pride. I enjoy this cd alot, pick it up

OUTSTANDING! 30 Sep 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'd never heard of the Real McKenzies until I stumbled upon Loch'd n Loaded at a Virgin Megastore and took a listen. I was riveted by the energy and the humor. Contrary to what the other reviewer says, I say this is a great album for anyone not familiar with the group (as I was). They also do an extraordinary cover of "Swords of a Thousand Men" by Tenpole Tudor (of Sex Pistols/Rock n Roll Swindle fame). I am utterly smitten by "Nessie," an ode to the Lochness Monster, and quite frankly by the entire album. With hesitation I say that they're like a Scottish version of The Ramones, but in truth, they're in a category by themselves. Bagpipes and guitars! Very cool. The Pogues were never this riotous...not even when Shane was at his angriest. The Real McKenzies are the real deal. And don't forget to visit their website at realmckenzies.com.

Buy it now 13 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

All I can say is that this is the best CD i've heard in a long time. I've been searching for a band that can come close to them, but nothing yet. The next best things are Flogging Moly, the tossers, and Filthy Theivin BAstards. Buy this Cd right away. You won't regret it.

Getting there...... 5 Nov 2002
By J. Dismukes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the 3rd sudio effort from this band (who have quickly risen as one of my favorites). It shows much more polish and focus than the sophmoric "Clash of Tartans". Most of the album is paced well, but seems to lose steam on the last three songs. A more careful arrangement of tunes could have solved that... Overall though the CD is just a lot of fun and is ten times better than half the crud that is put out as music and entertainment these days that top the charts. BUY IT !!! and then go to the website, see them live and support these hard working, drunk slobs!! They obviously love what they do and appreciate it!!
