Filled to the to the top of the pint glass with spirited and rousing versions of classic Irish tunes both traditional and contemporary, the Young Dubliners' With All Due Respect feels like a raucous night out with friends. Hastily but immaculately recorded, each cut has an energy that transcends the overall sameness of the production. Like Flogging Molly without the distortion, the Young Dubliners tear through two Pogues tunes ("If I Should Fall from Grace with God" and "Pair of Brown Eyes") and a flurry of pub classics -- including "Foggy Dew" and "Rocky Road to Dublin" -- that are as earthy as they are electrifying. It's a move that should please longtime fans and connoisseurs of Celtic folk-rock alike.

I've been a long time fan of Celtic music, but never really got turned on to Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys, but the Young Dubliners were able to put out a rousing celtic rock album that didn't wear thin after the first listening. Highly recommended to those who retain that affinity for these classic pint raising anthems.
