DROPKICK MURPHYS
- The Warrior’s Code (Epitaph) If there was an award given to the first song of a CD that best defines the rest of the CD while kicking the snot out of you, it would go to cut one of The Warrior’s Code; “Your Spirit’s Alive.” While hard as hell hitting, the message is a combination of sorrow while not allowing that sorrow to bring down memories of a fallen friend. This tone radiates throughout this release; hard hitting Celtic punk with a message of awareness, both social and personal, while remaining fun as heckers. “Captain Kelly’s Kitchen” and “I’m Shipping up to Boston ” scream the acclaimed salty DKM sound, but “ Sunshine Highway ” is a tad too Partridge Family sounding for me. If you’re aching for some real fast action, check out “Citizen CIA.” Although I take major umbrage with one of its lines, “The Green Fields of France” (written by Eric Bogle) will surely tug at your heart regardless of how you feel about war. Another fine release by these fine Boston Lads, would you expect anything less? – Denis Sheehan
