This album was the last gasp of Shane MacGowan as singer with the Pogues and has been dismissed as rubbish by some, not least the man himself. However, I think this is a severely underrated album which has a lot to offer. It's not particularly Irish, its main tone being a sort of Spanish-influenced pop/rock, but, the Pogues being the Pogues, it sounds like no other pop or rock I know. There are three types of songs on the album - slightly duff (the out-of-place bluster of 'Rainbow Man'), very pleasant if fairly inconsequential (most of the others) and absolutely brilliant. In the latter category you have the claustrophobic hurdy-gurdy of the title track, the bittersweet urban satire of 'Rain Street', the Latin drama of 'Lorca's Novena' and the gorgeous, lazy, tranquil 'Summer in Siam'. Joe Strummer produces, lending the album a sun-kissed, laid back feeling far removed from the frantic clutter of the previous album, Shane is in comparatively fine voice and the playing is as deft and inventive as you'd expect from the Pogues. It's a great record to play in the early evening in summer, and a fitting end to a fine creative partnership.

Wow! This is their last album together (Shane and The Pogues) and it is obvious why. Gone is the Punk / Folk that was always such fun and in come quiet melodies. Ok, some of these are quite good, I happen to like lorca's novena and the wake of the medusa, but this album is desperately missing those rollicking numbers that made the Pogues who they were. As for the last three tracks, well I listened to them once and instantly deleted them from my play list. Trust me, that really was a fair judgement of them. Once these tracks are removed then the album becomes Ok, not great, but Ok!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Slouch 2 Aug. 2010
By Glaublich - Published on Amazon.com

I don't know why this album gets lukewarm critical reviews. I love it. Maybe because it isn't the exact same alterna-punk Irish folk hybrid they became famous for previously. Some people didn't like some of the more pop-oriented stuff, but that's bull - this stuff is pure Pogues at the core, and Shane is still (barely) on top of his poetic game.

The songs stick to you, and have stayed with me as lovingly as when I first heard this album 17 years ago. You want another "If I Should Fall From Grace With God?" Then play that album over and over, again and again, until you are ready for This one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irish Punk Rock at it's purest 14 Nov. 2013

Great! The compassion of Irish folk and political music up-dated for a new generation. The DUBLINERS approve of them so much that they perform with them on a tune or two. Definitely different and much of it is even geared to modern dancing.
