Flogging Molly
Within A Mile From Home (Side One Dummy)

By: Mike SOS

Flogging Molly's traditional Irish music roots shine brighter than ever on the septet's latest album, a 15-track collection that masterfully blends the tin whistle and accordion with loads of punk rock pretense. From the louder, more edgy tracks like "Light of a Fading Start" and "Queen Anne's Revenge" to the more subdued numbers like "Factory Girls", which features vocals by Lucinda Williams, Flogging Molly's unique delivery sounds as fresh as a newly poured Guiness from the pub. Add in some traditional Irish song subjects, such as plagues, famines, and drinking, and Within A Mile From Home will make your stereo sound like St. Patrick's Day everyday.
