Underrated gem by the Pogues

If you are new to the Pogues, come back to this album later. However if you've heard the classic Shane tunes of the 80s and are wondering what more the Pogues have to offer, this is the album to get. The Pogues (minus Shane MacGowan) were talented musicians and in this album they branch out to new musical ground. The catchiness remains, but songs like "Pachinko," "Girl from the Wadi Hammamat" and "Sitting on Top of the World" take the band in a new direction. Sit back, crack a beer, and enjoy this album the whole way through. It's worth it. Regrettably the Pogues were unable to continue with such vigor in their next album Pogue Mahone, and the band drifted into mediocrity.


No Shane, not great

"Tuesday Morning" will forever be a classic. That said, the rest of this album is somewhat forgettable, with the exception of "Haunting" and "Drunken Boat". For all of his flaws (and they are many), Shane McGowan is the Pogues and without him, it's a bit stale.
