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.

They are a great celtic punk rock band.

Take a listen to Requiem for a Dying Song or Punch Drunk Grinning Soul to get an idea what the album is like.

Every time picking just one song, another song is just as good.

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.

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.

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.

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
I downloaded this album today and I am astonished by it's fire, passion, and energy. It's a great listen and the price is far less than this music is worth. I was looking at bands coming to play at a local venue (The Music Farm), and FM is on the calendar. I was thinking, yes, they sound familiar, let me go hear a sample. I would not call this punk, but music that melodically and lyrically surpasses most punk; yet is more turf-kicking fresh than old Irish ballads warmed over. I am still a huge fan of the Clash, and listened to Black Flag and Dead Kennedys back in the day. I like White Stripes and Radiohead (alt/indie etc.), classic blues and hard-bop and fusion jazz, so I am all over the map. Don't care too much for country, bluegrass, or weepy folk.

"Float" is original, with excellent, thoughtful lyrics. The musicians are all very good, and very tight, and can do a whole lot more than play fast. Their speed is breathtaking on some of these tracks. The lead singer's voice is wonderful, and like Tom Waits, can be melodic yet gruff at the same time. The main thing that appeals to me in a singer is the honest expression of feeling, which is one of the reasons I like blues and jazz so much. Flogging Molly's lead singer expresses rage, loneliness, lust, nostalgia, and bravado, to name a few.

I think this will be my new favorite album for a while, and I will certainly try to catch this show in December. I am now listening to it for the 3rd time already. The slower numbers just add to the depth of the album, and show the range they are capable of. They will rev you up or break your heart - maybe both at the same time.

Also downloaded the Pogues If I Should Fall from Grace with God today. Somehow I missed hearing them the first time around. Never too late to become a fan.

When I first caught on to this Celtic Punk/Thrash kind of music I was blown away. I just thought it was a great sound. A great combining of musical styles and Flogging Molly seemed to be the place to start. I'd heard a bit of this and that. The Pogues, The Dropkick Murphys, but these guys seemed to stand out. This is the first CD of theirs I've purchased but it won't be the last.

This is one of the rare releases I own where I like every song on it. I can listen to it start to finish and each time I'll be amazed at what I'm hearing. The songs are great. The musicianship is great. The recording/ production are great. Everyone involved seemed to know what was going on. Be it fast and heavy or slow and light, everyone handles their part of the song with total understanding. For my money there isn't a weak moment on this entire CD.

I'm continually amazed at how they can put lighter acoustic instruments such as the tin flute, fiddle and acoustic guitar next to electric guitars, bass and butt-kicking drums and have such a homogeneous sound. And they do it with ease. As I mentioned, I like the songwriting a lot. And I like the way the songs were arranged in their order. One flows into the other so one particular sound is not repeated back to back. The proceedings are broken up nicely. I also like Dave King's vocals. That raspy voice of his can be picked out of a crowd. Though originality is no virtue in it's own right, his voice has the luxury of being unique and spot on in its relation to the rest of the music.

If this sort of thing is your poison then have at it. You won't be disappointed.

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!
