CD Reviews

Awful!
Corky | 02/17/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a great Shane Macgowan fan and tried to like this CD and I just couldn't at all. His voice is slurred and lifeless from all of the drug and alcohol abuse. The songwriting is average and the melodies are stolen from Pouges songs (NW3 and Sally MacLenane). I have a problem with Macgowan fans sticking up for him and giving great reviews even though his stuff is substandard. These fans would give him 5 stars if he belched and farted through an album. This is NOT a good album!"
Too much honky tonk for me

"Half the songs on this CD were great but the other half were a different genre altogether. It seems like they are experimenting with American country music, which just isn't my style. However, if you like country music, you may really like this CD. I think 'Across the Broad Atlantic' takes the best songs on this CD (as well as some great ones from the Pogues) and is an overall better purchase."
