Reseña de álbum

If Rum Sodomy & the Lash captured the Pogues on plastic in all their rough-and-tumble glory, If I Should Fall from Grace with God proved they could learn the rudiments of proper record making and still come up with an album that captured all the sharp edges of their musical personality. Producer Steve Lillywhite imposed a more disciplined approach in the studio than Elvis Costello had, but he had the good sense not to squeeze the life out of the band in the process; as a result, the Pogues sound tighter and more precise than ever, while still summoning up the glorious howling fury that made Rum Sodomy & the Lash so powerful. And Shane MacGowan continued to grow as a songwriter, as his lyrics and melodies captured with brilliant detail his obsession with the finer points of Anglo-Irish culture. "Fairytale of New York," a glorious sweet-and-sour duet with Kirsty MacColl, and "The Broad Majestic Shannon" were subtle in a way many of his previous work was not, "Birmingham Six" found him addressing political issues for the first time (and with all the expected venom), and "Fiesta" and "Turkish Song of the Damned" found him adding (respectively) faux-Spanish and Middle Eastern flavors into the Pogues' heady mix. And if you want to hear the Pogues blaze through some fast ones, "Bottle of Smoke" and the title song find them doing just what they've always done best. Brilliantly mixing passion, street smarts, and musical ambition, If I Should Fall from Grace with God is the best album the Pogues would ever make.

Just shy of being their best

If Elvis Costello caught the Pogues at their rawest, then Steve Lillywhite helped refine thier sound. That is he took them from the traditional Irish folk with punk attitude sound to one that really focused on the talents of the band and allowed more diverse sounds and complex arrangements. Helping shape this album was the addition of Terry Woods and some fine songwriting not only from Shane, but also from Jem Finer and Phillip Chevron. This album is nothing short of an emotional pallette from the raucous fun of the title track and Bottle of Smoke to the sweet Lullaby of London to the uber political Birmingham Six, If I Should Fall From Grace with God really has somehting for everyone. This album has two standouts that make this album a near classic: Fairytale of New York is the bittersweet duet with Kirsty MacColl that has become both an Irish and Christmas standard and the oft overlooked Thousands Are Sailing, which, interestingly enough was penned by Phillip Chevron. It's a dramatic, sad, celebratory song of the Irish experience. The album also mixes in some fun Irish standards to keep the rhythm going. The only misstep on this album is probably the shot at Spanish music with Fiesta, which is meant to be fun, but is really a bit of a mess. It sounds like a muddled mess and doesn't fit with the rest of the record. Rhino has been kind enough to include some rare tracks with this release, including two with the Dubliners and some tracks that have surfaced on prior imports of the album. Whatever release you get, do not pass up this album - it is a classic.

Easily the Pogues finest work . . .

Along with Sinead O'Connor's Lion and The Cobra and Van Morrison/The Cheiftains' Irish Heartbeat, this album provided a soundtrack for my honeymoon in Clare, Kerry, and Cork some 16 years ago. I can still smell the peat fires and taste the Guinness whenever I put on any of these tracks. Highly recommended.

By demonstrating that the spirit of punk could live in traditional Irish folk music, the Pogues were one of the most radical bands of the mid-'80s. Led by Shane MacGowan, whose slurred, incomprehensible voice often disguised the sheer poetry of his songs, the Pogues were undeniably political — not only were many of their songs explicitly in favor of working-class liberalism, but the wild, careening sound of their punk-injected folk was implicitly radical. While the band was clearly radical,...
