Track Review: Dropkick Murphys – Turn Up That Dial

The Bostonian barroom bad boys are back! Say what you want about the Dropkick Murphys, but what they do, they do well. The East Coast sextet evoke an essence of Irishness so strong, you can almost taste the Guinness.

From the Album of the same name, Turn Up That Dial is a shouty-yet-melodic number. The track is a corker and will be an instant fan hit, bearing resemblance to the infectious, The State Of Massachusetts. This one is quintessential Celtic punk!

Turn Up That Dial shows off the talent of each member of the band, differentiating them from other similar bands of mediocre musicians. The multi-instrumental talent of Jeff DaRosa offers less of an accompaniment to this punk scorcher, instead providing the driving force for the lullaby-sounding ditty.

If you’re a fan of the band, and wanting much of the same, you’re sorted. Great craic!
