Float ***1/2

SIDEONEDUMMY

Gaelic rabble-rousers pour out more Guinness for their homies.

As much as Flogging Molly's spirited Irish punk brings to mind the Pogues (as well as rowdy pub elders the Dubliners), the Los Angeles septet are as notable for their non- Celtic influences. On Float, beneath the Warped-rousing riffs and the freewheeling accordion, banjo, and fiddle, you can hear Motörhead's bass rig ("Man With No Country"), Johnny Cash's Folsom period ("You Won't Make a Fool Out of Me"), and even tinges of John Lennon's touching balladry ("The Story So Far"). It's the band's most diverse album yet—and, diversity being their strength, it's also their most accomplished.
