What a great album - only just getting to it. I loved their Fairytale of NY (and think its the best Xmas tune) but never really listened to them. But there are a number of great tunes here culminating in the superb "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" - great storyline.

In questo album i Pogues estraggono almeno un paio di gioielli assoluti ( "A pair of brown eyes" e "Dirty old town" ) ed in generale raggiungono il perfetto equilibrio tra sgangherata forma e corposa sostanza.

The Pogues best album. Shane McGowan is on top form. It's not brilliant, and is a little inconsistent, but at it's best it's fantastic. Some great songs, especially, sick bed of Cuchulain, a pair of Brown eyes, and the utterly amazing, the old main drag, my favourite Pogues song. The Gallipoli inspired, and the band played waltzing Matilda, is a great way to close a very good album.

Drink along and cry in your beer for a sometimes-very-sad and beautifully tragic world, the way Shane MacGowan sees it. One of the best albums ever, some of the best songs ever written.

The greatest drinking album ever. That's what it's for. Some wonderful songs that have become part of Irelands Heritage. Also a nice Australian folk song as the final track .

This album is so good, you'll listen to it over and over again and like it more every time you do. The nuances slowly present themselves. The vocals get more real and connected every time you cue this up.
