    If people can't see it now, I'm pretty sure someday they'll see this album ranks amongst Inflammable Material, the Ramones S/T or London Calling as punk rock greatest achievements, I hope so at least

    Yeah, I never clicked properly after this one. But on retrospect, the next three with Al are good albums. I love Never Alone when Casey joins in: "You can shoot and you can kick but together we'll stick/Through thick and thin not stick or stone/Can break the bond that has here grown/ Arm and Arm We Fight As One."

    As the consensus shows, the best Dropkick album. Although i also like Blackout mainly because i think Casey is better than Barr or McColgan, and Blackout features Casey's vocals more than other albums.

    Alright, I said it wrong. The style of singing, I really hate. I think it's because I'm not really into the whole hardcore punk thing, or whatever you'd call it. I prefer Barr's style of singing.

    Both McColgan and Barr have great voices! But I still think this is the best album I've heard from them

    I really really can't stand his voice. In my opinion, Barr's is just so much better and amazing.
