Good golly I love this record. I came by a copy at SwapaCD, and I sort of set it aside to listen to "at some point", but I stuck it in the player's really growing on me. I found a duplicate to trade -- so here's the "review".

Recommended for a real great, crunchy, earnest, thumpy sound with boozy midnight-choir vocals. Kinda New Jersey by way of Dublin, Ireland, and not ashamed of that accordion, either. Some funny, dry lyrics, too, if you listen hard, and even the lesser songs that kinda go "clunk" are starting to sound great to me, now.

There's a sample at youtube -- not even the best song -- IMHO, but it's a good one, anyhow:

Low & Sweet Orchestra just made the one album, I think: "Goodbye to All That" -- but if I'm wrong, I'd love to know. Enjoy!

Low & Sweet soars to incredible heights

"Yes, there is a Hollywood guy in this band, Dermot Mulroney, but it's not what you think! He has to earn his keep playing cello, mandolin & dobro. He doesn't even sing. The band also features Zander Schloss(Circle Jerks) & James Fearnley from The Pogues. I had high hopes for this disc...they were easily surpassed. It's a laid back rock album with an Irish-folk flavor to it. It's a bit reminiscent of The Pogue's Pogue Mahone...just a bit. That being said, it is a very original album with a sound that I haven't heard before. The lyrics are rich nuggets saturated with realism. Five of the twelve songs should have been instant classics. The whole disc flows beautifully. The ballads(Take A Long Look/Identified,Deatained & Inspected/I had To Leave A Friend Behind)are heartbreaking and accesible. Sometimes The Truth Is All You Get & Worst Day should both be on the radio with great regularity. It is an unfortunate crime that more people don't know about this record. I have no idea who Mike Martt is, but his vocals are absolutely perfect for this endeavor. The American/Irish elements work together brilliantly here. The Irish influence seems to've elevated it past the usual shallowness of the American trappings, while the American influence tones down the Irish faction enough to make the music more palatable to the average American listener. This a marriage of superior songwriting and flawless delivery. Goodbye To All That should not be kept a secret. It deserves your attention. I can safely say that I will be listening to this cd for the rest of my life. It is timeless."

"I love this CD.The music is original, a little Irish, very funny at times. My favorite "A Dog Walked Into The Bar" Sounds a lot like Shane Macgowan when he was a little bit sober. If you liked the Pogues and the Popes and Shane, buy this, relax and enjoy.This would be a great CD to dance to also.I think this is the only CD they made,unfortunately. If there are anymore, they will be on my wishlist."
