MUSIC REVIEWS

The Young Dubliners-Red (Omtown)

 

This Irish quintet has been generating a buzz with their intoxicating brew of tin-whistles and guitar chords.  The new album Red proves them worthy of the advance word. 

 

The group effortlessly sheds styles and moods to put together a feeling all of its own.  The Celtic instruments on "Bodhrain" feels as traditional as something the Chieftains would stir up. "One & Only" starts out as a mournful ballad before changing into a stomping rocker.  The song "Rising/Change the World" is such a catchy folk-rock tune that it has been used for a beer commercial. 

 

The bandís unique sound has caught the attention of Elton John lyricist Bernie Taupin, who contributed the lovely bossa nova-tinged title track to this album. They also have hooked producer Thom Panuzio (U2, No Doubt) who has glossed up their traditional sound to a sparkling rock sheen.

 

The mix of the smart production, clever hooks, the ancestral instruments and leader Keith Robertsí sturdy voice make this the best Celtic-rock mix since the heyday of the Pogues. (6/00)
