Sound: Dropkick Murphys are commonly known as an Irish flok band that brings rock and punk and Irish folk into a beautifully blended sound. This is a live album so the lyrics sound a bit mumbled and the guitar riffs a bit sketchy but still outstanding. The band has a bagpipest, mandolin player, and a guy who plays a tin whistle. That's got to be a tip off of how a rock band is going to sound. Brings diversity to their music. // 10

Lyrics: The lyrics are typical of an irishman: drinking, pubs, family, friends, and people all around. While the ideas for their songs are very basic the lyrics themselves are like poems. You wouldnt think a guy who's hobby is drinking would come up with such great lyrics. The singers voice is very good for this type of music. // 8

Overall Impression: This is a great album to see how DM performs live. I like The Gang's All Here, For Boston, and the Spicy McHaggis Jig. They bring out how well the band plays. There are 26 tracks on the album so it is worth 15 bucks easy. A great album for the Dropkick Murphys. // 10
