  1. 8.3 |   Gig Soup

    Dropkicks ninth effort succeeds in being moving, relevant, biting, witty and most importantly of all, a half hour of damn fun drinking music

  2. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    It seems like the Dropkicks clan have found something worth its own weight in gold: artistic integrity

  3. 7.9 |   Paste Magazine

    For all the serious subject matter here, the Dropkick Murphys haven’t lost their taste for fun

  4. 7.5 |   Earbuddy

    A strong effort from a band that doesn’t HAVE to be this strong because they’ve got their core fans

  5. 7.0 |   music OMH

    Quite whether the lyrics of parting and closure relate to the album or the band itself remains to be seen, but there’s a definite sense of finality here. Hopefully Dropkick Murphys will be a round a good while yet and we’ll definitely meet again
