    5-0 out of 5 stars A mainstream release for Shanty Music?Thank You, Mr. Depp!
    Hi friends, my name is Dean Calin, one of the singers with Bounding Main.We have released two CDs and are working on our third.I've been performing sea shanties since 1995 and am personal friends with many of the Big Name Performers in this genre.I love the traditional stuff and think that it is Important Music, both for our culture and history.That said, Bounding Main delivers traditional sea shanties and maritime music with arrangements for the modern ear.There are people out there like Tom Lewis and David HB Drake and Lee Murdock doing the songs the traditional way and doing them well.It was our choice to perform in Elizabethan mariner costumes (if you want to call us "pirates," okee-dokee) and to write and perform harmonic and theatrical arrangments.Some of the traditional performers are kvetching like mad about this CD:"Johnnie Depp is going to make tons of money with mainstream artists who don't even know what this music is about, when (this traditional artist) and (another traditional artist) have been out on the ships and the cold, getting wet and bringing the history to the people!"My take is that if Mssrs. Depp, Verbinski, et. al. can bring maritime music to the mainstream, it will only benefit ALL of us!
    4-0 out of 5 stars Eclectic mix of singers and styles reinvigorates these ballads
    The two-disc 'Rogue's Gallery' is a fun and rollicking collection of singers and styles. Forget that it could be misconstrued as a sloppy cash-in by Depp and Verbinksi from the 'Pirates of the Caribean' sequel (which it doesn't feel like) and, on listening, just take it as a reimagining of sea chanties and old english ballads. On first listen, it seemed as though the discs were thematically divergent, with disc 2 having more of the songs sung traditionally while disc 1 contained more individually flavoured covers. While the second disc is pleasant, it was the first disc that made the set worth its money. Some of the standout performances include Bono's aching 'A Dying Sailor to his Shipmates', Mark Anthony Thompson's earnest 'Haul Away Joe' and the nearly mechanical droning of 'Cap Cod Girls', by the fascinating Baby Gramps. Nick Cave returns to the bloody stomping grounds of his seminal 'Murder Ballads' as he does a burningly ferocious 'Fire Down Below', and Gavin Friday has the most fun with the sinfully hilarious 'Baltimore Whores'.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Responses To This Recording From Those "Traditionalists"
    Nothing like reading the "purist" reviews of this collection, who seem to howl like hungry dogs who haven't eaten in a few days as they wrote, to give you a good laugh. The irony is, of course, that for people who claim they study this genre of music and are very familiar with it and advise you to seek out the "real" thing, they didn't do their own homework on who was producing this record or look at the list of artists who were on it. If they had, they would have found out that the producer is Hal Willner who has done this kind of "tribute" record, or better yet, reinterpretation for two decades.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Zach Braff REALLY knows what rocks.
    The soundtrack CD to Zach Braff's "Garden State" pulls an impressive double coup: simultaneously it's one of the best movie soundtrack CDs of recent years and also one of the best rock music compilations. There isn't a single dud song on this disc, and several of them--such as "In the Waiting Line" (Zero 7), "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You" (Colin Hay), "Blue Eyes" (Cary Brothers), "One of These Things First" (Nick Drake), "Such Great Heights" (Iron and Wine), and "Let Go" (Frou Frou) have become favorites of mine. Braff also does music listeners everywhere a vital service by reviving "The Only Living Boy in New York," probably the least known of the truly great Simon & Garfunkel songs. The soundtrack to "Garden State" is not only great listening on its own, but it succeeds spectacularly in doing what every soundtrack CD ought to do: it makes me want to see the movie again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest sound track ever
    So, my girlfriend and I saw this movie some time ago and fell in love instantly. Half way through the movie we knew that we had to buy this sound track. I mean seriously, Ive never heard one better. If this is your kind of music, you will love almost every song on this CD. There is only 1 we seem to agree not to like, but that should in no way stop you from getting all the other great tracks from this album. Now when we watch the movie, every song that comes on we have to jump up and say "that's my favorite" from the opening scene to the end credits. Listening to this sound track will truely make this movie one of your favorites, if it wasnt already. A+ in my book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fine collection!
    Selected by the actor/director and writer himself - Zach Bach, he did an impressive job of hand picking songs that embodied the emotional fine points of the movie. Not only do these tracks magnificently harmonize the movie, the songs complement each other seamlessly, and when put together, it created something fantastic as if the tracks should have never been apart to begin with.

    Editorial Review

    David Gray's glorious fourth record explodes in a wellspring of spacious, electronica-tinged folk-pop. He uses his bright growl of a voice to memorable effect, chewing on vowel sounds while spinning odes to lost love, the resiliency of young hearts, and the pain of experience. Gray's work finds the universality at the heart of folk music and tweaks it just enough to make it relevant for alternative audiences. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A nearly perfect alt-pop album
    If you can get only one David Gray album, this is undoubtedly the one to get.Although he has been around a long time and recorded a lot of good music, he has unfortunately not been as good at putting together albums filled only with his best work.FLESH, still his second best album, indicated great promise, but subsequent albums had superb material placed along some quite weak songs.They all show that he had talent; you just had to wonder why he either didn't substitute better songs for the weaker material or wait longer to write a stronger group of songs.WHITE LADDER is the glorious exception.There isn't a weak cut on the disc and there are several that are as good as anything he has ever written.I believe that at some point it will be one of the two must-own David Gray albums.The second will be some future anthology of all his best work.Though of course we all hope that he also records more albums as strong as this one.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Hooked
    ..and captivated. Not only to the music itself but by the lyrics this artists has delivered. I'd heard the song 'This Year's Love' from the movie Crazy/Beautiful and thought of it fittingly cool to listen to. Outstanding and superb is all i can say with this great recording by David Gray.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a great CD
    As a musicman supreme, it's hard for me to accept I'd never even heard of David Gray until the immortal "Babylon", which I played for about an hour straight after I purchased this Cd. It's years later, it's still a tuff groove, and I'm listening to it right now as a matter of fact. However, once you slip past that track, more gems await. This is a great piece of work that will stand the test of time without a doubt. ... Read more

    On his seventh album (and first for Dave Matthews' ATO label), David Gray refines his sonic palette with wonderful results. The first record made in a "real" studio and the first done with an outside producer (MOR hotshot Marius De Vries), it's a nice improvement over 2002's lukewarm, sparsely electronicized Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great
    There is something very cinematic about David Gray's "Life In Slow Motion". It begins like a dream drifting back in time - like snow falling on a quiet troubled world (that's what I'm feelin). The next song "The One I Love" is a poignant love song from the lips of a dying man. Next song - depression - "honey lately I've been way down". What follows are more songs of depression, desperation, and beauty. What a soulful voice David Gray has. "Life In Slow Motion" is very well produced - with piano, strings and the occasional well placed synth. It sounds contemporary and yet old at the same time. I love it - I think it's his best album.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice and mellow
    David Gray has always been a favorite of mine. Very mellow songs but great for work or just relaxing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars David Gray takes us on a magnificent journey....
    David Gray's - Life In Slow Motion - takes us on a journey that only has a beginning and never ends because you will never want it to end.Listen to the haunting "Alibi" one time; or the oceanic "From Here You Can Almost See The Sea" (subtitiled by me: Just Another Fool In Love); or the powerful, "Now and Always" -Listen once, I dare you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Final Album From A Tragic Genius.
    Somehow I've come across Nick's music, it's an exquisite blend of folk and soft-jazz. The story behind Nick's music and his life is tragic yet what he left behind is amazing, three studio albums and about four songs to start off a new album to be started before he died of a drug overdose.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sparse, but beautiful
    This was Nick Drake's masterpiece. It did not have the lush orchestration of his two previous releases, and it's delivery by tape to Island records adds poignancy. It only runs for 25 minutes plus.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad.
    Bullet for my Valentine basically take emo/hardcore elements, and serve them up with a healthy dose of thrash and melodic death metal, to create a sound that is definitely a cut above the rest.Sure, frontman Matt Tuck can get a little emo-ish at times, but he's also a good screamer, and the band is always quick with a blazing riff, a scorching solo, an Iron Maiden-ish melody, or a blistering double bass attack.I'd say this album is really more metal than anything, so if you've always wanted a bit more metal in this type of music, then you're likely to find plenty of enjoyment here.These guys are great musicians, who really know how to rock hard.Best song is "The End", a 7-minute epic that alternates between dark, haunting melodies, and powerful climactic riffs.The rest are in the 3-4 minute range, and a bit more straight-forward, but still full of interesting dynamics.It never gets boring for a second.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a band that does new metal the right way.
    First off, I'm an 80's metal guy. I love bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Dio, Megadeth. And for years, it's been difficult for me to get into any new metal bands...until now! What an amazing band. Finally, you have a band that has the makings of a great modern day metal band, yet their music still firmly reflects their 80's roots. I love this album. If you love your metal with pounding riffs, killer solos, and a whole lot of attitude, buy this cd. This is the best British rock band to come onto the scene in years.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stop listening to other people
    Go buy it yourself and see what all the hype is about. These guys are the real deal. And while it might not be groundbreaking, it is metalcore executed perfectly. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars All Led Zeppelin, All the Time
    This is BY FAR the best Led Zeppelin boxed set out there.I wanted to have all the Led Zeppelin albums, but I didn't want to spend a fortune on 3 different box sets.This set has all 10 studio albums, and they are digitally remastered.The sound is great (I'm assuming they're better than the originals).My only minor complaint would have to be about the packaging.The actual box and cases aren't crappy or anything like that, but I would have liked to see the CD's with the original album art.However, at the same time I guess its nice to have all 10 albums numbered from 1-10 if that is your cup of tea.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great if you like classic rock
    Ok, so some of you think that Led Zeppelin is overrated and some of you think that they are the greatest. What is more important is that Led Zeppelin is a style of their own and as a fan I can say that if you get into Led Zeppelin's style then you should be able to get into all of their albums even though the latter may not be as good as the first several albums. The band is very consistant, I've listened to their albums from I to Coda countless times and somtimes going back to particular ones and I can Never get enough because I love this kind of music. Most of us know that Led Zeppelin is one of the greatest classic rock bands and some would say the greatest(including myself). So, if you are into classic rock and are considering getting this box set I would recommend it and if youre not into this type of music maybe not, you can just write a review like the other guys.

    5-0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE GREATEST BOX SETS EVER
    I FIND IT REALLY FUNNY THAT LED ZEPPELIN ARE BEING REVIEWED BY PEOPLE WHO LIKE LOUSY R&B AND SOUL MUSIC AND THEN PROCEED TO CALL THIS GREAT BAND OVER RATED.I WANT TO REMIND THESE REVIEWERS THAT THIS A FORUM FOR REVIEWING A HARD ROCK BAND AND NOT SOME HORRIBLE R&B BAND FROM MOTOWN RECORDS.ANYWAYS LED ZEPPELIN ARE THE GREATEST ROCK BAND THAT EVER MADE MUSIC AND I WOULD RATE EACH OF THEIR ALBUMS TILL IN THROUGH THE OUT DOOR 5 STARS WITHOUT HESITATION.THIS BOX SET CONTAINS AN EXCELLENT OVERVIEW OF THEIR MUSIC.GET THIS RIGHT AWAY.

    A ghost, a band, a troubadour. Easily the strangest co-op project ever, and easily one of the finest and most evocative albums of the year. British socialist and folkie Billy Bragg was given unprecedented access to Woody Guthrie's unrecorded lyrics. Teaming up with alt-country band Wilco and quoting from more than 50 years of country, folk, and rock music, Billy and company bring Guthrie's politics, poetry, and morality to the end of the century and prove he's as necessary now as ever.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Woody Guthrie Lyrics to Billy Bragg Tunes
    You'll find yourself singing along after the first listen. California Stars and Ain't Nobody that Can Sing like me are new favorites for me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Something to Bragg About, for Wilco ,too.
    This is an example of the brilliance that results when two great talents join forces to write music and record the lyrics of American folk music icon, Woody Guthrie.Bragg and Tweedy collaborate seamlessly to set to music the words that Guthrie wrote over 50 years ago, and it still sounds fresh today.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
    This is a reply to those reviewers who think that Guthrie "really wasn't all that left-wing" or that Bragg is, by comparison, too "didactic" or "rabidly left-wing" (as some would have it).The fact is that Bragg can't imagine being as politically radical as Guthrie was, not because Bragg is a closet liberal, but because Guthrie was a part of a radical movement in the United States the likes of which is simply not to be found in the U.S. or Britain nowadays.

    4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent piece of work
    Songs from a Secret Garden is the debut album from Secret Garden, released in 1996.It consists of 13 tracks.I find the songwriting to be proficient, the musicianship to be skillful, and the sound quality to be satisfying.Secret Garden is made up of duo Rolf Lovland (piano/keyboards) and Fionnuala Sherry (violin).Except for the upbeat "The Rap," the rest of the compositions are somber, yet beautiful and soothing.I think that all of the pieces are admirable, and "Nocturne," "Pastorale," "Song from a Secret Garden," "Papillon," "Heartstrings," and "The Rap" are examples."Nocturne" provides flowing, memorable female vocals."Pastorale" displays affecting violin work from Sherry.Lovland's piano playing on "Song from a Secret Garden" is nice, and Sherry's violin playing is pretty."Papillon" exhibits attractive piano work from Lovland and appealing flute playing.I like Lovland's piano playing on "Heartstrings."Succulent with sound, "The Rap" is energetic, festive, and indelible.As for the CD packaging, the CD foldout includes an essay and track-by-track commentary written by Lovland--both are informative.In addition, there are various photos; for example, a color photo of Lovland and Sherry is included.The album cover is nice, too.The disc is just over 43 minutes.Songs from a Secret Garden is recommendable.

    I never really was into punk music too much. I thought it was too much screaming, and not enough instrumentation. THen, I discovered Flogging Molly, one of the greatest things to ever happen. I listened to Drunken Lullabies, and was immedietely hooked on this band. THis is an amazing CD that truly deserves recognition. This was the first Flogging Molly CD I listened to, and got me completely hooked on this Irish/Folksy punk band.
    5-0 out of 5 stars buy it!!!
    My review comes with certain disdain for punk music and in my cd collection the only "punk" I own is Dead Kennedy's. My girlfriend bought this cd one day And it ripped my skull open. My favorite type of music is folk and/or bluegrass and this cd, in my humble opinion, is a cross between them two generes mixed with a dash of tasteful punk rock fury.The lyrics are as excellent as the music so pseudo-folk fans like myself can find gold here with this cd.....its a surefire CLASSIC! I seen them live in columbus recently and they brought the city down!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Wipe that golden tear from your mother dear...And raise what's left of the flag for me!"
    My first experience with Flogging Molly was actually in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, which featured "Drunken Lullabies" on the playlist. I heard the banjo intro and actually started laughing, but by the end of the song I was shaking my fist to the chorus. That was about 2 years ago. I bought this CD finally on St. Patrick's Day this year, and I was singing the songs with friends while consuming copious amounts of Killian's Irish Red. I absolutely love this album. So full of emotion and balls at the same time, this album is truly a masterpiece. The songs that I particularly loved are Drunken Lullabies, What's Left Of The Flag, If I Ever Leave This World Alive, Rebels Of the Sacred Heart, Death Valley Queen, The Rare Ould Times, and The Son Never Shines(On Closed Doors). This was my first adventure into Flogging Molly, so when I buy "Within A Mile Of Home" and "Swagger", they may not hold that special place in my green, white, and orange heart that "Drunken Lullabies" did. ...

    Editorial Review

    Tom Jones all but invented saucy power pop back before the sixties even started to swing when his second single "It's Not Unusual" rocketed up the UK charts in 1965. After that initial triumph the singer never looked back, tying his hair back with a thin black ribbon and putting some rather expressive body English into his stage moves, which assured that the stage floor would be routinely pelted with various undergarments pitched by enthusiastic fans. Almost four decades later both Jones and his audience are no less fervent as Wales' second-most famous export runs through his extensive and varied songbook, still imbuing his old chestnuts like "What's New Pussycat?" and "Delilah" with a sense of naughty fun and irony. But Jones is at his best while giving the latest generation of rockers a run for their money, as he pairs up with the likes of Wyclef Jean, the Sterophonics, Art of Noise, the Cardigans, and Mousse T; as he overhauls staid tired standards like "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)" or "Baby It's Cold Outside" with his arch humor and gutsy delivery. Prince's "Kiss" crackles with an inner light that even the great Minneapolis savant didn’t intend, while his duet with Portishead is as cold and disturbing as a grave. A must have album. --Read more

    excellent music-half of it is jivy dance beat and some of the songs are ones that Tom Jones is famous for. I have never been a Tom Jones fan but I do like this cd

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tom Jones BABY!
    I went to see Tom Jones for the second time in Las Vegas a few years ago. He had some new material so I decided to check it out. His new CD was a greatest hits but had mixed in all of his new stuff. And I must say, his new stuff ROCKS. The new songs: Black Betty, Mama Told Me (Not to Come), Sex Bomb, Tom Jones International, and If I Only Knew were all excellent. Toms rendition of some of these old classics just go to show you what a performer he is as he makes them his own. And the new origional songs are just as good. And of course with it being a Tom Jones greatest hits you have all his great standards. I have also heard several of the new songs used in some big screen Hollywood movies recently like Domino and a few others. Black Betty and Mama Told Me Not to Come are the highlights of this new CD and Toms pipes are in exceptional... as always.

    4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent collection
    If you are a fan of Tom Jones, you should like this CD.I am not a huge fan of his, but I like most of his big hits and a lot of his big hits are on this CD.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thompson the alchemist turns poo to gold...
    This project originated out of rejection. A true non-reflection of life if ever one existed. Once upon a time, Playboy coveted Thompson's list of "the millenium's best songs". That is, until they saw it. This list included such chart toppers as "Sumer Is Icumen In" from 1260, "King Henry V's Conquest of France" from the 15th century, "Blackleg Miner" from the 19th century, and the bizarre Nat King Cole swinger "Orange Colored Sky". Then reality inverted. One of the least curmudgeonly magazines greeted Thompson's list with an icy silence. Perhaps they felt that those musty old songs would clash with the eternal blaze of naked airbrushed youth? Unflinching, Thompson turned to an art older than some of this set's songs: Alchemy. He miraculously turned what Playboy construed as poo into gleaming bullion. This shaft truly led to gold. So much so that Thompson has hit the road with his "1000 Years of Popular Music" twice.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute Magic
    I've watched this show every night since it arrived three weeks ago. It's not just the excellent production, the sheer talent and huge versatility of the performers. This show has some magic ingredient. Utterly captivating.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a Thompson live DVD that really clicks
    The first two Richard Thompson live dvd's were marred by slightly uninspiring song selections and fairly basic camera work. But third time's the charm - this lovely dvd presentation of Thompson's "1000 Years of Popular Music" show is simply one of the most essential items in his entire catalogue - along with "Henry the Human Fly", "I Want To See the Bright Lights Tonight", "Shoot Out the Lights", "The Old Kit Bag" and "Rumor and Sigh". And it's essential not only for Thompson fans, but for just about anyone who's interested in the history of popular music. Starting with old English folk song "Summer is a-cumming in" (which was also sung at the climax of 70s horror movie classic The Wicker Man), and ending with a version of "1985" (a download hit for the group Bowling for Soup a few months prior to this recording) and in between covering everything from English music hall, Gilbert & Sullivan, jazz standards and merseybeat - this is a wonderful selection of haunting songs. No, you won't find any of Richard Thompson's legendary electric guitar workouts on here, and you won't find any of his own songs, even though many of them could have matched the timeless quality of the great stuff that IS on here- but the dvd DOES manage to present Thompson as one of the most plain enjoyable live performers in the world. And it's all packaged in a lovely box with artwork, song notes and two bonus cd's. Now if only they'd do a presentation of Thompson's OWN song catalogue in this format - and that's a hint, in case any of the people responsible for this great set happen to be reading this. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars give it a chance...
    When i first got this cd, i was hesitant... i loved the first two albums but this one was an obvious departure from their previous material. suprisingly, when teamed with Metallica/Motley Crue producer, Bob Rock, the band lost a lot of its heavier "chuga chuga" guitar sound that was first heard on the band's debut album 'The Fake Sound of Progress'. Because of this, 'Liberation Transmission's first few listens may not be what Lostprophet fans are expecting. However, after a couple spins, it is evident that the band has grown together and found their sound. This album explores more melodies and harmonizing which in turn makes the music viciously catchy. Although it may be a dispointing departure for die-hard fans, if you give it a chance it is just as catchy and rocking as the previous cds. Overall, i still think i like 'Start Something' a bit more because of its heavier vibe...but everytime i listen to this album it gets better. Give it a chance and you'll catch yourself singing along whether you like it or not.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Liberation Transmission everything i expected plus more
    Now I just want to say I have never written a review, but I have to say that this cd made me write a review because it is so good. Yeah people say it relates to Start Something, their previous cd, but this cd just rocks. I dont know about anyone else, but I loved start something and I was hoping to hear sort of the same thing. The cd starts off with everyday combat settin the tone for the cd. It just explodes with sound and they just do their thing by rocking out. I cant say there are any bad songs because there isnt one. I have listened to this cd every single day since it came out. I really recommend people buy this cd because it is worth the money.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Welsh rockers exchange agression for melody on LP3.
    Behind the fashionable exterior of skinny ties and painstakingly sculpted hair, Lostprophets are a band that knows how to write a pop song. Every aspect of the young post-hardcore band recalls their hip contemporary image: from their designer clothes to the designer melodies of the twelve radio ready songs on Liberation Transmission, Lostprophets are indisputable proof that style is its own substance.

    Editorial Review

    As peopled by John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale, director Peter Chelsom's romantic fable mines a familiar vein: What if a pair of attractive protagonists engaged to others suddenly found themselves madly in love? If the premise is as vintage Hollywood as popcorn and sticky theater floors, its soundtrack is smartly contemporary, a collection of new songs (by Evan & Jaron, Shawn Colvin, Wood, Heather Nova, John Mayer, and Chantal Kreviazuk) and well-selected album cuts (by Annie Lennox, Nick Drake, Bap Kennedy, David Gray) filled out with a loopy slice of vintage Louis Armstrong ("Cool Yule") and jazzy solo piano score excerpt by film composer Alan Silvestri. The tone shifts warmly amid jangly alterna-pop, folk-tinged, and quieter, more jazz/blues flavored cuts. It's tasteful, sensual stuff--and largely devoid of the cloying bathos of similar Hollywood romantic fare. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Really good.Beautiful music to a beautiful movie @}->---
    I know this is an older cd now, but I came across it again when I was cleaning out my cupboard.It's from one of my favourite movies ever.It's got some excellent songs on it, but I dropped a star from the ratings because it's missing a piece or two (especially the music where Jonathan is reading his obiturary).But I was so estatic that it had the beautiful song by Annie Lennox called Waiting in Vain.That had me hooked when I first saw the movie at the theatre.Also the next best song is when Jonathan was finally given the book he'd been looking for for so long by his fiance.It's called When You Know by Shawn Colvin.This cd is a little eclectic and it has something for everyone.You should listen to this cd; you'll love it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Serendipity. Love it!
    I got this soundtrack as a Christmas present. I watched this movie many times and I found out that beside the movie and the scenario (my dream town: New York and my fav time of the year: Christmas) I really like the music, too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A perfect album.
    I was lucky enough to hear to original LP when I was younger as my father was a huge fan of the ever thoughtful and often melancholy genius of Drake. There's nothing I can add that hasn't already been said with one exception. The re-master of this album is showing its colors in that there is a noticeable gain hiss from the original session tapes. This may have been a problem to deal with in the late 90's when this was re-mastered and re-issued. But with todays "de-hiss" technology, it effectively eliminates this slight noise that blankets the entire album. They really should reconsider re-re-mastering this album, again, from the original tapes, and not from this master to make this a completely perfect album in both execution and final CD (or DVD Audio) pressed result.

    5-0 out of 5 stars in search of a Master in search of a Slave
    This is a perfect album, with perfect singing so intimate you feel like he's whispering in your ear, perfect guitar playing from the acknowledged "Hendrix of the acoustic," and perfect arrangements with perfectly tasteful orchestrations and perfect contributions from the likes of Richard Thompson and Rocky Dzidzornu.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Melancholy Masterpiece
    Every song on this album reeks of sadness. Not the put on pale make-up and put on a show sadness but a genuine rejection of the idea that life has any capacity to be enjoyed."Time has Told Me" has a wistfulnes that perhaps the woman he imagines in the song will take him out of the doldrums but the hope ends there. "River Man" is a poetic dirge that perhaps (using poetic license) that the riverman of the underworld mentioned in Greek mythology will take him away from this life. "Day is Done" imagines, perhaps, a typical day where at the end nothing has been accomplished and is now coming to an end."Fruit Tree" worries about impending fame. Even the very idea of being recognized by people brings on more sadness (Nick Drake rarely performed live though his performances were legendary though unfortunately no known recordings exist). Though his lyrics are closer to romantic era English poetry and not the wild flights of the imagination of Syd Barrett, this album and all other releases by Nick Drake still hold up. His music is reflective and poignant rather than pointlessly morbidly depressive. The orchestral embellishments enhance the music. Five Leaves Left is my favorite Nick Drake album though I'd reccomend them all. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Discovering Flogging Molly is better than falling in love.
    I have long been a big fan of traditional Celtic music and never thought I would find myself liking music that is often classified as Punk.I got turned onto Flogging Molly accidentally on the internet and was instantly addicted to the driving beat mixed with awsome lyrics and more than one surprise per song.I immediatly bought this album and have never regreted it.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Flogging Molly a great live band? Indeed, However I liked it better when it was called The Pogues.
    Ahh!!, the genre of Celtic punk has really now just become a real cash cow comodity, thanks to bands like Flogging Molly, The Tossers, and to a lesser extent Dropkick Murphy's.First off Irish music is something that I hold sacred to my heart, I'm third-generation Irish-American, so bands like The Dubliners, The Chieftains, and the Clancy Brothers, are the godfathers of the genre.However, when I first heard the Pogues, I was completely blown away, it sounded like The Sex Pistols setting fire to The Chieftains, sure Irish tradition music had been around for a long time, but when the Pogues got a hold of it their sound was really pioneering."Red Roses For Me," "Rum, Sodomy and the Lash," "If I Should Fall From Grace With God," I'll even throw in "Peace and Love," still to this day rule my life.Which brings me to the question, who is the best band in the genre of Irish punk, after the Pogues.Well, none of the new bands have the fire, energy, and spirit of the Pogues, but Flogging Molly is pretty close, with The Tossers coming in at a close second, every other bands needs to get their own thing and stop looking up to granndad.

    I love this album! A former co-worker of mine turned me onto it in the early 90's and I will be forever grateful to him for it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Adam and Eve
    I was first introduced to the Pogues by an alternative radio station, reporting on Margaret Thatcher's censorship of the Pogues--presumably because the band was supporting the Irish who were allegedly (wrongly) accused of terrorist acts against England. The song of the Birmingham 6 is really beautiful. It really stands alone.And it's so different from the rest of the album which is so upbeat, wash-buckle rock! The lyrics are all nonetheless thoughtful and socially reflective.
    5-0 out of 5 stars If I Should Fall from Grace With God~ The Pogues
    If I Should Fall from Grace With God~ The Pogues is a very nice "folk-rock" album with nicely written lyrics, and vocals that sound rough and a bit uncouth but it just for the this kind of music. One can imagine seeing the singer in an Irish Bar with his mates drinking, playing music, and having a grand time. I love the book-let and the photos, font and the lay-out for it is simply put it grand. I love the clarity of the cover photo and the rest of the photos are also well done. Highly recommended indeed. ... Read more

    The Pogues aren't great musicians.They're not great at rock and if you want great Irish music you'd be better off with Planxty, Patrick Street or Danu.But the Pogues are unique, entertaining, touching and influential.

    Don't be nervous about buying this CD. It is an amazing listen. All the songs are crisp excellent quality full of fresh melodies. Some slowed pacers, fast pacers, good dancing fun. Old fan or new get Rum Sodomy & the Lash.
