CD Reviews

Unmatchable FUN!

"Outstanding album! If you want my thoughts on it, read the Amazon review above. If you want my thoughts on the band, read on.I saw the Docs in NYC on St. Pat's day and ended up staying another day SOLELY so I could see them again the next night. It was at those shows that I first heard many of the songs on Sun Street and I was ecstatic when the album finally came out.This band tore the house down!!! I worked at a Cabaret in college and NEVER saw anything like the craic to be had at a Saw Doctors concert. Imagine a house full of twentysomethings, all hoisting their Harps, whipped into a frenzy by the high-energy tunes and familiar lyrics of the premier Irish folk rock band in the land.The Saw Doctors take you back to a time when playing music was fun - not a business. The sense you get when you see them is that they took an Irish tradition, playing music, and turned it up a notch, adding electric guitars to the flute and accordion, and making it (more) fun in the process. They don't take themselves, or their music, too seriously, and that's part of what makes it so grand.If you're curious, check them out. Look them up on the web and go to their next concert. (They play the Fleadh's in the States, but they're better indoors.) But be prepared. I GUARANTEE you'll have the time of your life."
Another "Saw Doctors" Triumph

"While I agree with another reviewer that you can't capture the excitement of the "Saw Doctors'" live performances on a cd, I have to say that I play this disc more than any other that I own... It's got every type of music that the Doctors' fans have come to expect...ones detailing yearnings for distinctly Irish events and places, some that are toe-tappingly fun, and the last one, which I plan to put in my will to be played at my funeral someday (listen to it, and you'll get my point! )...a great disc!"
Rollicking music....now, where's my Guinness?

"I picked up this album not long ago on a whim. Having heard only a few of the Doctors' songs, I didn't know what to expect from a full album. Well, now I know I didn't waste my money. This is a rollicking set of songs that gets better with each listen...whether or not I'm sipping a Guinness. Standouts include "Best of Friends," "Galway and Mayo" and, my personal favorite, "Carry Me Away" (a haunting ballad). For sheer toe-tapping pleasure, you can't beat "Heading for the Sunshine" and the neo-traditional "Joyce Country Ceili Band" (listen for the smile-inducing lyrics). Folks, this album proves that Irish music is so much more than "Danny Boy" and the Irish Tenors. I'll be sure to catch the Doctors the next time they're in the States."
