- "...Making Irish jigs go 'Oi!' like nobody since the Pogues on RED ROSES FOR ME in 1984, DO OR DIE is all-for-one/one-for-all boy bonding....They rock like infantry grunts wishing they were back on the block....Their pennywhistles meld into an anthemic Clash roar, and even their power chords feel like flags waving."
The full-length follow-up to their debut EP, Boys on the Docks, Boston's Dropkick Murphys serve up an interesting blend of hardcore-style punk with traditional Irish inflections on Do or Die. ~ Steve Huey
