Biography

The lights have gone out on many Americans. Three years ago, working class America was under the assumption that their nest eggs were secure, their homes were their safest investments and that the economy was on the upswing. Then, with virtually no warning, their lives were upturned, lifelong dreams and plans were dashed, and neighbors began to turn on one another because of political ...

Editorial Reviews

What makes a band truly remarkable? Insightful lyrics? Memorable melodies? Blow-your mind live performances? The truth is that it takes all of those things along with a boundless enthusiasm, an infectious energy and a supreme devotion to the fans. With this rare combination, a band may ascend past "good," - and reach sublime. Drawing on the hardships and joys of their own lives and a musical history ranging from old world Celtic to modern day punk rock, the seven members of Flogging Molly do just that, and they do it with a charm and an ease that makes them one of the most revered bands performing today. Flogging Molly isn't a mere band, they're a seven member nuclear family. They are as devoted to one another as they are to the music they create. It's no wonder their extended family - the legion of loyal Flogging Molly fans - keeps growing every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars A change that had to be made March 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
First things first: If you're looking for the rebel-rousing, drinking song filled release that Flogging Molly has become famous for, this may not be the album for you. With each album that FM has released, they've began to inch away from the lyrical content of their earlier works, and closer to a more personal, mature sound. While their previous albums were filled with songs of Irish heritage, and lyics inspired by lead singer Dave King missing his homeland, this album tackles more personal issues. While not as fast-paced and hard-edged as their previous work, the songwriting on all accounts has reached a new, more mature level here. And all in all, I believe that to be for the best. With Float, Flogging Molly show that they're not just a one-trick pony. Instead of repeating what they've done in the past, they take a step forward, and I for one applaud them for it.

So, in review: If you're looking for the novelty of their previous works, in terms of drinking songs and good time jams, this album may not be the one for you. But, if you're a fan on FM who wishes to see them take a step in a new direction, while still maintaining their signature sound, I HIGHLY recomend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best in recent years...Period April 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Have you ever listened to an album once and thought, meh, that was good, ok quickly put in an old favorite of yours?
This album, LIKE MOST Incredible albums grows on you the second you stop it.
You find yourself wanting more. More of that wholesome beat, the fine instramentals, the passion and honesty in the song.
I find myself in a mental uproar when listening to a little "03.float" or "04.lightning storm" wanting to see the band live again, to experience the awesomeness that is dave king with a Guinness in a plastic cup singing with flogging molly playing their best.

'don't sink the boat...that you built to keep afloat'

5.0 out of 5 stars Maturing nicely. October 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Other than the Pogues this is the only Irish Punk band I like. They started out with a polished and faster version of what the Pogues did 15 years earlier but they were different and talented enough that you didn't have that many parallels in their music. After 3 albums I was wondering where they were going with their music, I couldn't see them doing Irish punk songs like the first two albums forever. I was right in that respect, they have matured to a point that they have found a nice niche they made for themselves. The music has good songwriting arrangements and pulls you in. It's good that this band has the talent to stay a Float.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average album April 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ok, first off, I have been listening to FM for about 6 years now. I was intruduced to them through a friend, who played me the fistrt 10 seconds of Drunken Lullibies and i was hooked. Now, its been a good couple of years since FM has realesed an album, so I was excited to hear that they finally realesed a new one. Well kiddies, unfortunatly its not the album I was expecting. Lets go with the pros first

Pros:
*This is the first album from FM that does'nt sound like it was recorded in a tin can. (though i almost consider that a con)
*This is the tightest the band has been (instrumentally)
*Some songs i like the up-beat feel to a little more than the older albums

Cons:
*The band has unfortuantly opted for a more mainstream rock lyrics rather than the "drinking songs" of old, though some songs still retain the originality.
* 42 minutes of music? C'mon, if I am gonna pay 15 bucks i would like something more filling.
*It took WAY too long for the band to come up with this little of music, I still love them to death but I'd like a little more bang for my buck.

Over all, this is not a horrible album, but its not the bands best either. Hopefully the next album will return more towards the point of origen. If you are a fan, then you owe it to yourself to pick it up, if you are not but are intersted in the band, then pick up Drunken Lullibies or Swagger.

5.0 out of 5 stars No problems November 16, 2012
By Dani
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The CD came on time with no damage.

I got it for my fiance and he's very happy with it as well. It's a good transition from their earlier music, but it's not the same as the Swagger or Drunken Lullabies if that's what you're looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly amazing album... September 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album was everything I expected it to be and more. I'm a rather new fan of FM and this record just made me love them all the more. It has that fiery, rebellious, liberating energy that you'd expect from Flogging Molly and no matter how many times I play it, I don't think I could get tired of it. Although I LOVE all the songs, some of my favorites are "The Lightning Storm", "Float", "Punch Drunk Grinning Soul", and "Between a Man and a Woman". Deeply meaningful lyrics, outstanding instrumentation, driving choruses... I don't think I have a single complaint about it. If you are at all hesitant about ordering this album, just do it! You won't regret it, as it is worth every penny!

Sweet mother mary...
It should be awesome. I saw them in Columbus, Ohio two weeks ago and they played a lot of the new album. Same feel as "within a mile" but all new and shiny. Paddy's Lament is amazing. Same quality songs and musicianship you'd expect from such a great band!
