Look, it's the Pogues. I love this band and their albums are, to a one, pure fun to listen to. But I can't, for the life of me, understand why they're on this list. I don't see how anyone could say that this is an influential band with a straight face. Anyway, it's a ton of fun and that's worth some stars.

Wouldn't be surprised if this was made 'Thanks to a grant from the Irish in Britain Heritage Fund', so well does it document the horrors visited on the Irish by our multiply disgraced nation. As for historicity, I imagine some is fact and some is myth and jolly good too because history can't be understood without both. At the same time, McGowan and his troop make you feel the spirital effects of all this turbulence. It's pretty obvious how this is done lyrically. These are fabulous stories bleeding with colour. But it's the inclusion and ocassional reworking of traditional songs among the originals that elevates this to heritage status. Capping it all off with Waltzing Matilda -- about similar awfulness in Australia -- is a masterstroke that makes the album universal. What struck me anew this time were the sparing and gentle arrangements, which belie my assumption that this is mostly punk and puckish fare.

What is music for? What is art for? Part of what it’s for is creating little windows into other worlds, and letting others peer into those worlds. And when it works, we peer into marvellous, fully constructed worlds that adhere to their own internal logic - that build something from nothing. That transmit the world you see directly into my head. Point being, this album creates such a world better than most any album I’ve heard in a long time. A totally internally consistent world of heroic boozehounds and defeated champions, spinning yarns and raising glasses. I was transported.

Welp, here's another album that hits all the right spots for me. Irish band playing Irish and spaghetti western-style music. To be honest, today wasn't the right day to listen to it, and I didn't enjoy it as much as I might've done. However, I recognize that fact, and this album's greatness. Five stars!

Der Sänger ist zwar die hässlichste Sau, die je das Pech gehabt hat geboren zu werden, er hat sich es sich trotzdem nicht nehmen lassen, jegliche Hirnfunktion aus seiner verformten Matschbirne zu saufen. Beeindruckend! Musikalisch zwar grade mal über Grundschulniveau, dafür aber mit ganz viel Gefühl bei der Sache, also alles gut (und traurig meistens). Möchte im Pub so viele Snakebites saufen bis ich mich anfühle, wie der Mongo aussieht. Nur geil. Dirty Old Town absolutes GOLD! 5*, wer war was anderes sagt, hats nicht verstanden. Eigentlich müsste man 1* abziehen, weil die wohl bei der hälfte der Aufnahme gepennt haben. Dirty old Town - Gute Qualität. Jesse James - hört sich an wie durch ne Wand aufgenommen. Hätten die mal weniger gesoffen.

Erster Song direkt Bock auf n pint black adder, poor mans black velvet oder ein chilliges snakebite. Holt mich sauftechnisch enorm ab. Instrumental tracks kicken mich weniger, vernebeln mir aber schön den Geist mit Hobbit-vibes und bock auf'n kühles Kilkenny. Zwischenzeitlich auf nice "fields of Athenry" Vibes die mich die grünen saftigen Wiesen samt eines Eimers des wohlduftenden Gesöffs direkt vom St. James Gate in Dublin schmecken lassen. Je länger der bumms dauert desto mehr wünsche ich mich in mein 4 uhr morgens Irish Pub ich hinein das rücksicktslos weiter bestellt. Na klar darfs noch n whisky dazu sein. Hab zwar fast kotzen müssen aber der muss noch sein. Als ob ich noch was schmecke lol. Bei the parting glass kommt mir der absolute tullamore dew Rausch in die Birne, absolut krank. Insgesamt einfach ein einwandfreises Irish Folk Album. Meiner meinung nach sind auch nur Spider Stacy, Jem Finer und Andrew Ranken echte Pogues, da der Rest früher oder später weg war (alle drei an diesem album beteiligt). Sei es drum. Schenk mir ein du grüne Muse und hör nicht auf bis mir schwindelig wird. Cheers! 5*

Dirty Old Town always gets me. Honestly I didn't have time to relisten to this, so perhaps it doesn't hold up, but old me will fight new me if I end up thinking so. Once saw Shane McGowan in concert after the Pogues, as you might expect, drinking in excess for decades doesn't does one well.

So much fuckin energy here, it's impossible to dislike in any way. It sounds dumb to write it but Shane McGowan's alcoholism was something I thought was really cool in my 20s. I always thought the ultimate rock star would be a cross between him and David Lee Roth. Punk rock energy, arena rock antics, incredible substance abuse problem haha. 5/5.

Not many albums can make you dance, sway and cry all within the hour. 'Rum, Sodomy and the Lash' is The Pogues' finest work, although some prefer the almost as good follow up 'If I Should Fall From Grace With God'. The album is packed with an impressive amount of variety, original material blending seamlessly with covers and instrumental numbers. The last thing MacGowan or his band could ever be accused of is being boring, and the almost complete absence of bad songs on this album is a testament to that. It goes down rightly as the album that captured the band at their emotional, intoxicated and brilliant best. 5/5

I am a big fan of Celtic punk and the Pogues are largely responsible for popularizing it. This album is at times angry, political, and endearingly reflective. Shane MacGowan’s distinctive delivery can be heard in later bands such as Flogging Molly, and serves to highlight his influence. The music itself is brilliant. Combining punk forms with traditional Irish instrumentation is a unique and effective hybrid and one that allows for the expression of a cultural identity within a popular genre.

Oh, how I wish I'd seen them live. Preferably in a pub with a dance floor. I love the little touches that elevate it above folk (I love good Celtic folk BTW). My favourite is the surf guitar solo on, "A Pistol For Paddy Garcia." I was expecting to mark this down because of repetition, but this glorious LP is packed with variety, fun, skill, and that spark of anger and rebellion that turns good into great.

Well for one thing, this popped up a day after St Patrick's Day - feels like a missed trick. It's one of my Dad's favourite albums too (the last one to come up was Take Five, and it got five stars just like that... I feel like this might have the same treatment. And you may need to add an additional star option when Graceland arrives). A perfect mix of sentimental, offensive, raucous and fun.

The Pogues! Not expecting to see them here, but I'm pleasantly surprised. It's not my favorite album by them, but it's still really good. While I think the bands they influenced aren't bad, you really don't need Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys albums when you can just listen to The Pogues instead.

“Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash” by The Pogues (1985) Are you into sailing? Serious listeners who don’t immediately recognize the reference in the title will be behind the curve, but this album is very good—sailor songs, mate, in the finest traditions of the British navy—rum, sodomy, and the lash. Songs that tell a story—sometimes coarse, sometimes passionate, sometimes horribly abrasive, but always ballsy and always entertaining. With lyrics that are somewhere in the broad sea between doggerel and epic (it ain’t Kipling), the music is in the folk Irish style, meant to be sung and heard while inebriated, pounding pewter mugs on the nearest horizontal piece of oak. Lead singer Shane McGowan has a voice like your average drunk boatswain’s apprentice, but with soul. Everyone should listen to at least one track of this (I recommend "The Sick Bed of Cúchulainn") to get the flavor. Musically, these performances feature a heavy dose of accordion, tin whistle, and banjo, with standard chord structures and conventional melodies. And it’s so well done. Picture yourself on a British man o’ war in 1870, gathered with your shipmates on the fo’c’sle before the third watch after your issue of grog. Obviously, this isn’t for everybody, but within its very narrow genre, it excels. 4/5

Irish folk with an urgent and chaotic punk energy but also some tender moments. Really like the social commentary through story telling and evocative imagery in the songs. Dirty Old Town in particular is whistfully wonderful.

"In blood and death neath a screaming sky I lay down on the ground And the arms and legs of other men Were scattered all around Some cursed, some prayed, some prayed then cursed Then prayed and bled some more And the only thing that I could see Was a pair of brown eyes that was looking at me But when we got back, labeled parts one to three There was no pair of brown eyes waiting for me" (A pair of brown eyes) "They died in their hundreds with no sign to mark where Save the brass in the pocket of the entrepreneur. By landslide and rockblast they got buried so deep That in death if not life they'll have peace while they sleep." (Navigator) Pero esto es BASTANTE FANTASÍA TODO.

This was super different and really interesting to listen to. I caught some Western influences in a few songs, and liked the Irish folk of many of the others. Sally McLennane is a surprising banger, album cover is pretty cool as well. It was a little long, though two of the songs I saved were from that expanded edition so it evens out. Saved: Sally McLennane, Dirty Old Town, The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, A Rainy Night in Soho, The Body of an American

Great stuff! I was way into this yesterday when I was listening, but this morning woke up and couldn't remember what it sounded like ... except there was a melodeon... and it was festive...(?) But to put this in perspective, the morning after a great night with the mates and some pints is often accompanied by memory loss and an underlying feeling that a good time was had. This is that kind of album.

Another fantastic entry by The Pogues, my favorite Celtic rock band tied with The Waterboys. Not as fun and suffers more duds than their later entry, If I Should Fall From Grace With God, but it's still a blast to drink and dance all throughout. Major complaint is that the songs blended in following "Dirty Old Town" but there's still a lot to like. On the plus side, the expanded edition attaches their impressive Poguetry in Motion EP.

I had a lot of preconceived notions about this band. Even though I’ve only heard good things about them. Even though some artists that I really like are associated with them in one way or another. I knew that it was that Celtic, pub shit. I knew that it was merged with the punk rock mentality. When I think of that, I think of Dropkick Murphys. Well, needless to say, my ignorance was ill-conceived. This album was so cool! It’s still not my absolute favorite style or anything. The songwriting didn’t blow me away. Regardless, there were great songs, and the energy was palpable. I was smiling through most of it. I would love to dance to this. I’d listen again

This LP is a strange collision when it makes its way in through my ears. On one side, Celtic folk music, something that echoed through my childhood, softer over time. On the other, punk from across the pond: I only discovered that after I turned 20. The effect, for me, is disorienting. It helps that the instruments are rather raw, if recorded extremely clearly, and the arrangements and singing more polished (mostly). It doesn't exactly scratch an itch on first listen, but I think it could, if I worked at it for a bit. I suppose none of the titular elements are things I have the stomach for.

Ich stehe ja auf feine Melodien - davon gibt's einige. Andererseits kann man das Pub-hoch-die-Tassen Gefühl nicht ganz abschalten (oder die Erinnerung an The Wire - was ich Mal wieder gucken sollte, wobei der Keipen-Beerdigungs-Song dort könnte auch von den Dublinern o.ä. sein...).

Quite enjoyable pirate music. I (a millennial) had some "Life is Strange" vibes - probably because it sounds that The Pogues were somewhat influential for Amanda Palmer.

No great issues with this but, for me, the pogues require a certain state of mind to be enjoyed and I was not in it yesterday. Saying that, wild cats of Kilkenny is really enjoyable yet strangely haunting all at once. Which was in fact perfect for my state of mind yesterday. What came first? The chicken (me)? Or the chicken’s state of mind?

I grew up around Irish and wanna be Irish people who blasted traditional Celtic, Celtic revival and Celtic punk music. I’m just never going to like it again, or maybe I will but not that I can see. In spite of that, if I’m being forced to listen to this music then this album is on the upper crust of that shit sandwich. The music is nostalgic for me in both a good and bad way, the vocals are reminiscent of church in my home town or visits from my uncle, the tunes are ear worms since their basically sea shanty’s, working songs or pub choruses. I have to give it 3, I want to give it 1 because I hate this music but for all the above mentioned reasons and the fact that I could find this in my great aunts record collection if she was still alive, it’s 3/5.

You hear the opening track and it’s a real blast and the band’s playing and MacGowan’s growling vocals are stunning; and then you hear the second track and you go this is great, such energy, what fun; and then the third track and you go oh this is good; then the fourth and you start to think this is like the other three; and as you continue you think, I might enjoy this music more if I heard the odd track from time to time, rather than a whole albums worth…but there is an undeniable brilliance about The Pogues.

Ett album och ett band som är oerhört bra på att försätta lyssnaren i en viss sinnesstämning. Efter en genomlyssning vill jag, trots min bakfylla, sitta och marinera levern i stout och whisky på en snuskig brittisk pub medan jag snackar skit med andra fyllon och seglare hela natten. Väldigt traditionsbaserad musik, med tre låtar som är traditionella folksånger, och några covers. Jag har en förkärlek för de brittiska öarna, och The Pogues gör sitt för att stärka den känslan. A Pair of Brown Eyes är bra och berättar en fin historia. Dirty Old Town och And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda, två covers, är också bra. Förutom dessa så håller albumet en hyfsat jämn nivå, med många snabba och trallvänliga låtar. Betyget blir 3, lika många som antalet tänder i Shane MacGowans mun. Bästa låt: A Pair of Brown Eyes.

Música fiesta de piratas en los años 80. Quién podría querer escuchar esto de manera no irónica?. Encima luego se vuelve balada de borracho pesado. Llevo dos canciones y quiero que se acabe ya. La tercera es un jurado desde el primer acordé sin embargo, lo que of monsters and men hubiera gustado de ser. Igual tiene que ver con que no han cantado. Es buena música de fondo, supongo. Totalmente anacrónico escucharlo sobrio de camino al curro en metro a las 8 en 2021. Aún así los mejores momentos son las canciones borrachas de fiesta y menos las baladas borrachas. Un disco para la gente a la que le gustó Disenchantment. The Gentleman Soldier tiene unos drums guapísimos. Mejora mucho volviendo del trabajo que yendo. O la segunda parte es mejor (más instrumental es seguro), o está es una tendencia a estudiar. Lleva dos canciones que parece que se va a acabar pero no, espero sea porque es la extended versión

Irish singers > British singers (too many meh British singers so far in the 1001) Also, traditional Irish music > traditional British music And Irish pub music is the peak embodiment. I prefer a little more traditional/folkier than the Pogues, or a little punkier than the Pogues. They are just in a bit of a vague space in between that, while I enjoyed the album, keeps it from being one of my favorite Irish pub rock albums.

Story time: In high school I used to love Flogging Molly, and one time I was wearing a shirt for them and my English teacher asked about it. I told her it was an Irish punk rock band and they were the best. She told me to go back and listen to The Pogues, who did it Irish punk first. I never did but I always remembered her telling me that these guys were the OG's. Excited to give this a listen.

Poggsarna är ju ändå bäst när dom bara kör. Så är det ju bara. Visst finns det en charm med de lite långsammare låtarna men det mäter ju inte upp mot när de bara släpper loss tyglarna och spelar i det höga, mer dansvänliga tempot. Det är väl dock en poäng med albumet. Det måste finnas av båda delarna även det om den ena smaksättningen smakar mycket bättre. Som helhet är det ett fullkomligt okej album. Det är inget som får de allra kraftigaste musiknoderna i mig att börja fladdra. Men känslan är att The Pogues ofta levererar vad de utlovar, hittills har det aldrig varit något som gör mig besviken. Utan jag vet ungefär vad jag väntar mig... och det är precis det. Så om de är något, så är det ärliga. Bäst: Gillar öppningsspåret "The Sick Bed of Cuchulainn" och "Sally MacLennane"

This is not particularly for me overall, love fairytale of New York but that's enough Pogues for me I reckon. I do like the mixture of different vibes on this album but I do not love a lengthy album very often unless it's really quite perfect. For example, I fucking LOVE the song the Parting Glass, I find it enchanting and hypnotising but I love to hear it sung by Cara Dillon or one of those other sickeningly perfect Irish women's voices not by Shane MacGowan's raspy pub chanty type voice. Oh! Shocked to see this was produced by Elvis Costello too wowwww maybe that explains why I don't love it. I also really liked the change of pace and interest with "I'm a Man you Don't meet every day" love her voice it's beautiful.

Sea shanties and raucous drinking music abound! This is the second album from the English folk punk band The Pogues. The music is inspired by traditional Celtic punk and sailing voyages on the sea. The songwriting on this album is beautiful and the traditional music is as incredible as it is timeless. Listeners won't forget this album any time soon, as it never ceases to delight. I highly recommend this album to everyone for its eccentricity, novelty, and the profound joy one will feel when listening to it.

I don't know anything about this band and I have to be honest: I've spent most of this listening time wondering what the hell "Rum Sodomy" is. Did that get mentioned in a lyric and I missed it? Can one be sodomized by a drink? I don't want to think about anything worse than that. But as far as titles go, well... this is one I'll remember. Alex: am I understanding you correctly that these lads are not Irish and are just putting on an accent? If so, hmm... I don't think it really takes away any enjoyment for me and I simply can't imagine these songs without the accents. On the whole (or hole, if we're talking about that Rum Sodomy) I liked it but it's probably something I'm only reaching for at St. Patrick's Day parties. Still, I do think it's elevated above other stuff I've heard that tries to occupy this space. It's just not necessarily a space I'd want to spend too much time in, namely because of the RUM SODOMY.

I like this stuff! A whole album does somewhat soak into the walls a little, but there's a three-song run in the middle of the album beginning with 'A Pair of Brown Eyes' and finishing with a rendition of Ewan MacColl's 'Dirty Old Town' that is quite magical. Now, what do we all think of the Irish accents? Is this any different from European rock and popacts doing an American twang when singing? Or does it seem like a calculated attempt at injecting an extra dose of authenticity into the mix?

This might be a great album but it demands a few more listens. Love the sound of it but I don't really love any of the songs.

2.5 | El Lecho de Cuchuliann es un inicio espectacular. De vuelta a rock folk esta vez con el inicio de la influencia de canciones populares irlandesas que eventualmente se fusionará con un poco de Sex Pistols y resultará en bandas como Dropkick Murphys y tantas más. Los Pogues en general me pueden llegar a gustar más porque son más melódicos; las bandas posteriores con más punk aunque me gustan mucho también se llegan a sentir que todas las canciones suenan igual. En este album no es el caso, se siente el estilo más melancólico de las melodías originales contando la historia de alguien que va a la guerra y cómo regresa y trata de continuar la vida, con un final bastante agridulce. El pero que tengo con el disco es en gusto personal, me agrada la música de corte irlandés pero a mi gusto el último tercio ya se siente un poco cansado y musicalmente empieza a ser algo repetitivo. Muy buenas canciones, muy melódico, entiendo que esté en la lista siendo el disco más celebrado de la banda y el que los hizo grandes, pero creo que de sus discos el de Peace and Love (uno que trae un boxeador en la portada) es muchísimo más variado y agradable a mis gustos.

I was in high school at the turn of the century when celtic punk made its resurgence with bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. In fact I saw the Pogues in their reformed state in the early 2000s but went mainly for dropkick murphys or something equally lame because we all had that phase. The tunes and shantys on this record are catchy as hell. They are currently stuck in my head! Against my will, I've been humming and whistling then all day. The instruments are different, and Elvis Costello's production is top notch. The ensemble is tight. The songs are poetry. I've just never had a drop off alcohol in my life, so I think there's a HUGE piece of the puzzle missing for me. I know these guys are kind of the OG and I was not born or a baby when this band was in their original form, but for me this album just reminds me too much of that dark time when celtic punk made its resurgance in the late 90s/early aughts and it's a time I am not all that eager to relive for 45 minutes or 1 hour depending on which album version you listen to. That's not their fault, it's just my own past getting in the way and haunting my perception. Stiff Little Fingers were always better imo anyway.

The album cover I found to be very misleading. It looks exactly like hundreds of metal covers I’ve seen before from all different decades, but alas the music is anything but metal. It’s instead a collection of what sounds to me like ye ole’ Irish shanties and colonial singalongs. I honestly don’t get it. There are a mix of tracks sung in combination by a male & female vocalist and who sing them very well. I don’t know if there are any other band members as I know nothing more about them and didn’t really care to find out. Either way...not my style. 1 Star!

Actually...I don't think I hated the other one as much as this. Vocals are shit and I cannot get beyond that. Not something I'd ever put on to listen to voluntarily. Might even go to the basement if it were on the upstairs stereo. um...track 3 "Wild Cats of Kilkenny" was nice (instrumental). 2/10 1 star
