According to some, the Pogues should give up music entirely because they could no longer get along with Shane MacGowan. That notion is absolute nonsense. While Waiting For Herb was a complete bitter disappointment, Pogue Mahaone shines, with or without Shane. It's true that a lot of the poetry is missing from the lyrics, but these Pogues have spread the writing responsibilities around. The effect is an entertaining blend of love songs(Love You Till The End/Livin In A World Without Her), spastic rockers(how come/tosspint/bright lights), tragedies(four o' clock in the morning), and even a Dylan tune(When The Ship Comes In). Of course the Irish sound is everywhere. Spider Stacey lacks Shanes charisma, but he does the job nicely with a steadiness that is refreshing. There is life after Shane(although the fact that nothing has come out since this one belies that fact). I recommend buying the Shane-era Pogues stuff first, then buy the first Shane solo effort(The Snake) & then buy this. Pogue Mahone is worth having! I wish I could say the same for the ill-fated Waiting For Herb. I also recommend the Low & Sweet Orchestra's Goodbye To All That(its members include Pogues & Circle Jerks). In conclusion, Pogue Mahone isn't a great album, it's a good album. It's somewhat depressing and has a smooth, relaxing quality(ala Bap Kennedy). You don't need it, but you might very well like it.

Pogue Mahone (1995) was the last studio album recorded by the Pogues. In some ways it's a self titled album because Pogue Mahone was the original name of the band.

Spider Stacy, Andrew Ranken and Jem Finer are the only founding members left (long standing member Darryl Hunt is still with the band as well). Four new members were added to round out the rest of the group. Too much liquor and a rift with a possible returning Shane MacGowan caused James Fernaly, Terry Woods and an ailing Phillip Chevron to quit the band. Shane wasn't in any condition to return to the group full time so he bailed out. Spider and company wasn't ready to call it a day so the remaining members went back into the studio to record Pogue Mahone.

Several of the songs on this disc are very enjoyable (Anniversary, When the Ship Comes In, I'll Love you until the End and How Come). The other band members do an adequate job of replacing the departed players. Overall, the album doesn't have the fire and passion of the previous discs. Maybe if the band hung around a little bit longer and recorded another album then they could have been a much more tighter sounding unit. In ways it's a fitting tribute to a band that captured the raw energy of celtic folk music.

Recommended for fans.

Okay, so it's not Rum Sodomy and the Lash (honestly, why people go looking for an album in other albums is beyond me). Pogue Mahone is a good album in it's own right. It's got some gems such as: "Where that Love's Been Gone" (which almost has a Cajun feel), "Bright Lights" and "Oretown". I'll admit that the album as a whole isn't an instant classic, but every once in a while I just have to listen to at least my favorite tracks on it.

It's not better than Rum by any means...but it's just as good as Red Roses For Me. And if some of you pretentious Pogues fans don't agree with me...you can just Pogue Mahone.

By 1995, the Pogues were starting to run out of steam, Shane MacGowan had left in 1991, and in 1993, Terry Woods, Philip Chevron, and James Fearnley also parted ways. Now the only original members Jem Finer, Spider Stacy, and Andrew Ranken, plus Daryl Hunt were left to pick up the slack. As a result "Pogue Mahone," isn't anywhere near as the MacGowan era "Pogues," however it is a vast improvement over the disappointing "Waiting For Herb." The last studio album by the seminal Irish-folk punk rock band, improves on the strain that was left after "Waiting For Herb." This time around Spider Stacy seems more confident as the lead singer and the songs seem more focused on this release than before. Jem Finer steps up to plate again as the principal songwriter and does a noble job with such cuts as "Tosspint," "Point Mirabeau," and "Bright Lights." However, other members of the Pogues come into play as well, particularly Andrew Ranken who brings the lovely "Amadie," and the depressing "Four O'Clock In The Morning." Even Daryl Hunt; my least favorite Pogue, provides the beautiful "Love You Till The End." Bob Dylan's "When The Ship Comes In," makes it mark on the album as well. Overall, "Pogue Mahone," is an improvement over "Waiting For Herb," but still this album like its predecessor is severely missing the songwriting talents of Shane MacGowan.
The new remastered version is very disappointing, only Jem Finer's "Eyes of an Angel," and the Stephen Hague remix "Love You Till the End," are the bonus tracks. I would recommend some of Jem Finer's hardest to find songs like "Who Said Romance Is Dead."

This album really isn't bad. In fact, its amazing its as good as it is. Keep in mind Shane Macgowan was no longer with the band at this time, and he was the heart and soul of the band, not to mention an amazing songwriter. Putting that aside, this is a good album, and I would probably think of it more highly if I hadn't come to expect so much from this group. There are some really great tracks on here like "How Come", "Living In A World Without Her", "When The Ship Comes In" & "Bright Lights". However, the rest of the album is nothing special. If you are just getting into the Pogues get "Rum Sodomy & The Lash", "Red Roses For Me" & "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" before you even begin to consider buying this album. If you are a Pogues fan and are wondering what the band sounded like without Macgowan, definitely get this over "Waiting For Herb" (which is a terrible album).
