Essential listening. Along with 'Rum Sodomy and the Lash', this album is the peak of the Pogues, who fused Irish folk and punk drive into an astoundingly tight, furious, yet poetic whole. Shane McGowan was a great songwriter who wrecked himself with drink, but he's in amazing form here. 'Fairytale of New York' may be their best known song, but this album flows over with genius: 'Bottle of Smoke', 'Turkish Song of the Damned', 'Lullaby of London', 'The Broad Majestic Shannon', and the title track are all superb.
It was Christmas Eve, babe/In the drunk tank/An old man said to me/Won't see another one./And then he sang a song/The rare old mountain tune/I turned my face away/And dreamed about you.
love this album. not as good as "peace and love" but it has the late( and very missed ) kristy mc coll. and probably one of my favorate non carol christmas songs. you know you're old when one of the groups odf your very mispent youth are used in a car commercial ("if i should fall from grace with god" is used in a subaru commerical.
