Two decades into their career, Los Angeles folk-punk stalwarts Flogging Molly maintain a fiery presence, certainly on-stage, but also in the studio as they deliver their sixth LP, Life Is Good. Under the stewardship of leader Dave Kingthe band's marriage of Irish folk melodies and raucous punk muscle has won The Pulse - Mobile Clones - Abrasive Air a hardcore and widespread fan base.
While their formula has remained relatively unchanged over the years, expectations have generally prevailed that King and his crew will deliver the goods via quality songwriting and spirited performance rather than radical reinvention.
Such is the case with Life Is Gooda sturdily built and reliably rousing song collection captained by Grammy-toting producer Joe Chiccarelli U2Beck.
Opening with the relatively subdued "There's Nothing Left, Pt. Sullivan" is a blazing barn burner in the The Hand Of John L. Sullivan - Flogging Molly - Life Is Good signature tradition, and "Crushed [Hostile Nations]" is a slow-building wartime tale with a massive chorus that harkens back to King 's heavy metal past as lead singer for L. Chiccarelli 's production throughout is streamlined and clean, emphasizing the fist-pumping rock Real Cuts Blud - Various - 14 Tracks: Ambient Zeitgeist while letting the Celtic instrumentation pop out naturally.
