EDITORS’ NOTES

Dropkick Murphys became Boston's leading exporters of good-time chants by balancing their full-throated punk bacchanals with surprising subtlety. Their eighth album is full of sly, reflective storytelling: "Rose Tattoo" tucks a finely arranged portrait of loss between soaring fiddles and interlocking choruses, while "Jimmy Collins' Wake" is a jaunty yet nuanced examination of how sports can unite a fractured community. But Dropkick Murphys also know that sometimes, the best cure for melancholy is an old-fashioned shout-until-you-drop anthem like "The Boys Are Back."

Ok

I wish they would do a little more old School Dropkick. Stay with that old punk music. Starting to get a little too mainstream

Best Band Ever

I have heard some of the songs on this album in concert. I am super psyched for its release. Can't wait til the 8th of January so I can hear it all.
