5.0 out of 5 stars The Pogues at their best!!, 27 July 2004
This review is from: Rum Sodomy And The Lash (Audio CD)
The very best of the Pogues, it was all down hill from here. If you want to saviour a foot tapping sing along album then this is it. As good as the previous album (Red Roses for Me) and a whole lot better than anything the Pogues produced after. A must buy for an introduction to the Pogues.

5.0 out of 5 stars And the Band Played and Played..., 14 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Rum Sodomy & The Lash (Audio CD)
`Rum, Sodomy and the Lash' was Winston Churchill's famous description of the British Royal Navy and somehow suits the album down to the ground. The album its self is a masterpiece and certainly The Pogues most perfect and fully realised album, perfectly portraying their fantastic live performances of this period, the height of Shane MacGowan's song writing and there most inventive reinterpretation of traditional folk music.
Of the Shane MacGowan originals the singles `Sally MacLennane' and `A Pair of Brown Eyes' were obvious choices but `The Sick Bed of Cuchulainn' `Billy's Bones' and `The Old Main Drag' are equally accomplished songs. Only the instrumental `Wild Cats of Kilkenny' smack of filler.

The choice and arrangement of the majority of the traditional standard are also inspired. `Dirty Old Town' was possibly over produced to engineer it into their biggest single up to that point but the rough performances of `Navigator', `The Gentleman Soldier' and the Spider Stacey driven `Jesse James' fit in with the album theme so much more. The one trick `I'm a Man You Don't Meet Every Day' is possibly the albums lowest point. The album ends perfectly with a fantastic performance on Eric Bogle's `The Band Played Waltzing Matilda'.

The CD re-issue also includes the `Pogetry in Motion' e.p. which is worth the cover price alone. Either of `The Body of an American', `Rainy Night in Soho' or `London Girl' could have been singles in their own right and highlights the strength of MacGowan's song writing during this period.

One of the greatest and certainly one of my favourite bands and albums of all time.
