Customer Reviews

You can't go wrong with Real McKenzies!

Another very solid effort from the McKenzies. This album has it's share of what we've come to expect from these guys, up-tempo, great, celtic-punk songs. It also smacks of a little maturity, like maybe they've grown up a little bit. As the cover would indicate, this collection does tend toward the maritime in theme, but over all it fits perfectly into my Real McKenzies collection! I would highly recommned this one to anyone interested in trying this band out.

Buy It or Die

I do what I want might be one of the more powerful songs ever written by the bunch. The production quality of this album is also a step up. If you like The McKenzies you'll like this album, same quality drinking/fighting music they have mastered the art of making. Bottom line, five oota five stars.

Best Album Since 10,000 Shots!

Wow, this McKenzies album is an instant classic in my opinion right up there with the masterpiece of 10,000 shots. It's so fun to listen too, the cover art really says it all. All aboard an amazing lyrical journey accompanied by bagpipes and drunken men. Oh yes. This is one for the books.

The Real McKenzies were founded in Vancouver, British Columbia,...
