"The Young Dubliners are a darn good little band, but this album is nowhere near as good as "Rocky Road to Dublin""
Great Irish Guys!

"I learned of The Young Dubliners when I was lucky enough to have met them in Boise, ID in 2002. They were on tour promoting their new album "Absolutely" and opening for Jethro Tull, and I was being trained on how to address the media on issues related to wildfire mitigation for my summer internship position in Anchorage, AK. They had just returned from Anchorage, so in talking with them I gained not only a free cd (no tickets to the concert, unfortunately!) but a newfound love of Celtic Rock. In using traditional insturments, The Young Dubliners keep a traditional feel in their music, but in the way their music is put together they are a hit with the modern crowd too. They bring a fresh new sound to the Celtic genre, and the rock genre, as well. I am reviewing the cd "Breathe", which is a necessity for any rock fan with an open ear. This album features the song "Foggy Dew", which with its energy is reminiscent of the "third class old world party scene in the movie 'Titanic'". This same energy is present in their song "Rocky Road", which my eighteen-month old daughter starts dancing to any time she hears it! The lyrics really embody their diversity as a group, and range from traditional Irish songs like "Alive Alive O" to songs about beer-drinking. Two more albums you simply must listen to are "Alive Alive O", and "Absolutely", lovers of Celtic music will swoon! I like the Young Dubliners because it is virutally impossible to be in a sad or bad mood when listening to their music, it makes you want to dip your toes in the Great North Sea! If you like the Young Dubliners, you will also probably like Flogging Molly- another energetic Celtic rock group!"

"I happened to buy this album at a flea market recently for $2. I had never heard of The Young Dubliners before, but the album cover looked interesting. I'm so glad I bought the album, because it's definitely the most bang I've ever gotten for the buck. It's a perfect marriage of rock and Irish traditional music. I love the whole album, but the song "Nothing's Gonna Change" is my favorite. It has such an infectious rhythm and melody, it just gets under your skin, in a good way. I can't get it out of my head (again, in a good way)! I'm so glad I discovered this band and definitely want to check out their other albums and see them live."
