The Young Dubliners - Breathe

The Young Dubliners

First Appeared at The Music Box, January/February 1996, Volume 3, #1

Written by John Metzger



Somehow, The Young Dubliners managed to find a happy medium within the convergence of punk, pop, alternative rock, and Irish music. Foggy Dew and Follow Me Up to Carlow are the two traditional tunes on the album, and they feature some killer riff trading between fiddle and electric guitar. Wash My Hands is what the Dave Matthews Band would sound like if it could find a sense of urgency; the Dada-esque Nothing's Gonna Change is full of energy, and Change the World should be a hit single. starstarstar
