The last CD by DKM had a definite feel of being a celebration of the working class, the underdogs, and those who fight every day for survival, who do it with dignity, and who don't necessarily get the recognition that they deserve. This CD, however, felt completely different than that. It seemed to be one giant love song to people that the band care about, all done in a céilí-style (with a fair amount of Irish Wake thrown in).

This CD is a lot of fun to listen to, since so many of the songs are ones that you can sing along to (and sing loudly to) ... though, this being DKM, you might want to be conscious of the kidies that are around since there is a bit of cursing (like in the CD's title track).

This CD may have taken the spot as my favorite from these guys, and it is a must for (not only DKM fans, but also for) anyone who really loves good Irish music.
