As, I'm sure many of you know, I am a huge fan of the Irish punk band, Flogging Molly. Well, as it turns out, their newest album, Speed of Darkness, got released today. While I'm thrilled to have new Molly to listen to, I'd be lying if I said I've instantly fallen in love with it. Speed of Darkness is MUCH softer than the rest of their discography. With that being said, it's by no means bad. Quite the opposite, really. The album is filled with beautiful songs...It's just missing those fun, energetic drinking anthems that I've come to know and love.
So Sail On
The Cradle of Humankind.....I think this has become my favorite on the disk.
This Present State of Grace
There are, perhaps, two or three songs that are somewhat more energetic than what I posted, but nothing that comes anywhere close to the likes of Drunken Lullabies.
