  • The Best of Damo is already up on Spotify. Nice.
  • His latest, All Mighty Love, is very much Damo as usual. With the high focus on production quality found in this latest release is comparable of to Hell or Barbados if not better than. If you're a Damo fan you'll enjoy this latest beauty, from Damo's own style of love songs to dispatching politics to the inferno. Check out , All Mighty Love and Fire in the Glen. While Canadian Geese hints at an earlier style of Damo, where Good and Great really hits home with his rhythmic vocals. Community has the touch of Damo's newer production style. 'Nuff of me talking, just listen to the whole album, it's another great album by our beloved Damo.

  • thought the album was ok when I first listened but after a second I think it's fantastic, I'm still waiting for him to come back to NYC man I missed him the last time he came to brooklyn twice. Hoping he comes soon!
  • Damo's top listener :D
  • No matter where he plays, the die hards will be there..I have seen him in Vicar Street a number of times, and it was absolutely crazy up the front!! I have given the album a few listens today and "really" like it. Born without hate is fantastic! Same with Community!
  • Had a few listens and I like it! Saw him a few weeks back too in the National Concert Hall and was great although only played a couple off this Album. Talk about a mixed crowd that night, the usual die hards plus a lot that I'd say were new and they all loved it. Go Damo
  • Just downloaded Almighty Love...not sure what to think of it.
