CD Review: Dropkick Murphys

The Meanest of Times

By Nicole Langlois |

The Boston bad boys drop their sixth cd with a Celtic twist. The album, The Meanest of Times, rocks their traditional style with a prominent Celtic influence.

The band recorded parts of the CD in Ireland to give an authentic feel, or as Dropkick put it, “to learn a thing or two about how it is really done.” Using influences from traditional Gaelic groups such as the Dubliners, who make a guest appearance on the song “Flannigan’s Ball,” Dropkick brings their new technique to the song “The State of Massachusetts.”

Other songs such as “Shatter” are remnant of ’80’s hardcore punk, while the song “Vices and Virtues” brings their traditional sound to their new CD. Dropkick provides the sound needed to get the pit going. Download a song and hear for yourself, Dropkick has done it again.
