Flogging Molly's latest album, Float, recorded in King's native Ireland, delivers still another iteration of the band's sonic evolution. More mature yet retaining the immediacy that marks all of their work, Float may find the widest audience acceptance of any Flogging Molly album. Hard charging tunes 'Paddy's Lament' and 'You Won't Make a Fool Out of Me' give way, as listeners have come to expect, to more sober ruminations on tracks like 'Float'. The overall effect is a symphonic layering of sound that possesses a unique rhythmic flow from boisterous to bereaved and back again. Long time fans and new discoverers will be equally astounded. 11 tracks.

Reviews:

Somebody'"probably Michael Mann'"needs to write and direct the Los Angeles version of The Departed so this hard-charging Irish septet can get their soundtrack due. Along with Dropkick Murphys, they're the most popular of the recent wave of folk-punk, buttressing their eclectic barn burners with tin whistle, accordion, bouzouki, mandolin and banjo. Their last crossover hit was "Drunken Lullabies," from the album of the same name in 2002. Hopefully Float can regain some momentum.
