I really like this album due to its great variety in the styles of tracks and the fact that I think it has established The Tossers as one of the top Celtic-punk bands, ranking up there with Flogging Molly, Pogues, Dropkick Murphy's etc, all of whom I'm a big fan of.
`Crutch' and `Litigation' are both mad and energetic songs typical of much of the Tossers' work and it is impossible not to at least tap your feet to the beat. `Ballad of the N.A.T.O' is my personal favourite track - the experimentation (which is what makes the Tossers so good in general) is very successful here, with attacking political lyrics and a single and calm strum of the mandolin. `Mad riot' is a great song to play very loud on the stereo and is hard to resist shouting along with. `Altercations' is another strong song, while calmer songs such as `Ciara' add to the mix at the end.
I would say that this is a very good album to buy if you like Celtic-punk and would make a good introduction to the Tossers.

The record "Long Dim Road" from The Tossers left an unexpected aftertaste to me. After visiting their homepage I expected Celtic Punk, but as I listened to this album, I immediatly though, that I was listening to a hybrid of the Young Dubliners and The Pogues (which are too slow in my opinion). If you like The Dubliners and The Pogues and are looking for a new album to buy get the records from The Tossers for they will entertain you for certain.
For Flogging Molly fans (like I am) this record will be too lame and boring because the drive and the punk is missing.
The lyrics are very political and are not typical for irish folk music.
All in all it is a good record for fans of irish pub music but NOT for celtic punk fans.
cheers,
gregor

Tossers and all their music 30 July 2000
By "oneitrousrtrt" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I went to a Tossers show last night and it kicked. The band was awesome and they stuck around and jammed with us until 3 am [eventhough the show ended at 12 and the had to drive to San Jose]. They played almost all of their tunes and Long Dim Road has some of the best. I've looked for their other albums but cant find them anywhere. But if you like a mixture of Irish folk music and punk, you will love the Tossers.

Irish/punk/folk From the Windy City. 14 Dec 2001
By Musicfan101 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is a recent addition to my Celtic/Pirate/Pub/Folk-Punk collection. May I add it is a nice arrival! "The Ballad Of NATO" so far is my favorite track, but, It's only been a day or two since I bought the album, that i'm sure I will have more favorites. The Tossers are a much more political band than say...Flogging Molly.....Pogues...... So if you like any of those three bands, go get this album.

"Long Dim Road" Anything But Dim.. 24 Feb 2001
By "modskin" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great record from a fairly unknown band. Following in the footsteps of bands such as the Pogues, Flogging Molly ("the Crutch" sounds suspiciously like Flogging Molly's "Swagger"), and the Popes, the Tossers deliver a record of Guinness-fueled Irish folk/punk, incorporating the tin whistle and mandolin into the typical rock band mix to fill out the Irish folk sound while maintaining a hard edge. This record will be in my most-played list. If you have the means, I highly suggest you pick it up..
buy it 23 Mar 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is an awsome album. I never gave much thought to my Irish ancestery, but after I heard this album I started reading alot about Irish history and it has enriched my life quite a bit. I flew out and saw them play at sxsw in Austin, and I enjoyed the show quite a bit!!!(although there were only about 10 people at the bar) I'm looking forward to maybe flying out to see them play in Chicago or something. Anyway, I have first league out from land, long dim road, and communication and conviction, and they are all good and worth buying!!!!
