Product Description

Amazon.ca

The last great Pogues album, and the beginnings of the end of Shane MacGowan's association with the band. Much of Peace And Love is written and sung by the band's other members, and while this is no problem in itself--any of Phil Chevron, Terry Woods or Jem Finer could have carried a band by themselves--the album as a whole has the somewhat strained quality of people forcing themselves to have a good time despite everything. This is not to suggest MacGowan contributes nothing of interest. "White City", a lament to a demolished dog track, and "Down All The Days", a tribute to the writer Christy Brown, are both examples of everything MacGowan was good at: an economic and morbidly funny use of language, and an ability to wring new melodies from the most worn folk chord progressions. However, the real attractions here are turned in by MacGowan's long-suffering bandmates: Chevron's shimmering madman's lullabye "Lorelei" especially, a glorious and frustrating hint of a solo career that, disappointingly, has shown no sign of happening. --Andrew Mueller

Product Description

1989's Peace & Love was produced by Steve Lillywhite, marked other band members' musically coming to the fore more often as MacGowan became increasingly volatile. Standout tracks include 'Gridlock', 'Blue heaven', MacGowan's superb 'White City' and the band's first CD single Misty Morning, Albert Bridge'. Six pack of bonus tracks include the charting single Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah', the traditional 'Star of The County Down', and the Pogues take on 'Honkey Tonk Women. Essay by Patrick McCabe, extensive liner notes by David Quantick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not so hot May 4 2012
Format:Audio CD
The Pogues seemed to be trying to expand their audience with Peace and Love through a fusion of various musical styles. One can make the argument that the fusion began with If I Should Fall from Grace with God, but with that release MacGowan was still in control and the album worked. Peace and Love was more like the Beatles' White Album in that several individual songwriters were recording their material in the way they wanted. The difference was that the Beatles had three gifted songwriters. The Pogues had one. On a good day, maybe one and a half.
MacGowan penned just six of the album's fourteen songs. Finer, Woods, Chevron, Rankin, and Hunt all contributed material. Part of the problem was that MacGowan was not part of the fusion process on the other Pogues' songs. Whereas MacGowan and Finer had co-written songs on previous albums, when Finer collaborated on Peace and Love it was with Andrew Rankin. Phil Chevron co-wrote one of the album's tracks with Daryl Hunt. Terry Woods collaborated with fellow Irishman Ron Kavana. "I couldn't play what I wanted," MacGowan said in an interview. "On the Pogues' best album, If I Should Fall From Grace with God, me and Jem wrote every note, apart from the traditional numbers which I arranged... but after that, things changed."
MacGowan's best songs on Peace and Love are probably "White City," "Down All the Days," "London You're a Lady," and "Boat Train." "Cotton Fields" and "USA," both written while the Pogues were touring America, do little to enhance Shane's reputation as a top songwriter. While both songs deal with the USA, neither touch on Irish immigration, a theme he handled so deftly on previous albums. Instead, he seems to focus on inner turmoil, perhaps brought on by dissatisfaction with the direction the Pogues were taking.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing April 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
A huge fan of MacGowan and the Pogues' "Red Roses for Me" and "If I Should Fall From the Grace of God," I am horribly disappointed with this album. It begins with a completely out of place swing jazz song, that, when you listen for the first time, will make you think the manufacturer accidentally mispackaged a Big Bad Voodoo Daddy album; though, quite an original intro for an 80's pop folk album. A few tunes resemble the Pogues of albums past (tracks 2, 10 & 11), but they lack the energy and conviction. The rest of the album is, as the title infers, complete hippie-inspired garbage only comparable to the worst of the Grateful Dead.
The production is quite different from what you may expect as well, with the trademark banjo, cheerful flute, and MacGowan's vocals are toned down or nonexistent on most tracks.
If you love early Pogues, do yourself a favor and avoid this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic, Mondial, and yes! It Works! July 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
Strangely enough, the mix of world music stew you find on this album works rather well, and at a time when they might have been stumped for new material, this is a better album than most critics will admit.
For one thing, Jem Finer and Andrew Rankin step up on the songwriting duties; "Misty Morning, Albert Bridge" is a classic Pogues tune that even Shane with his worsening voice could not ruin. Kirsty MacColl is back on board with the beautifully soaring "Lorelei". McGowan himself isn't up to par, but still shows some flashes of classic brilliance--"London, You're A Lady" being one of the best.
The Jazz, fusion, and samba beats might jar a few listeners, but it's a pretty cohesive album that slips under your skin in no time at all. Well worth owning, and far better than the follow-up "Hell's Ditch".

3.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air from...the Late 80s? Aug. 30 2002
By J. Holt
Format:Audio CD
I listened to the Pogues when I was in college back in the late 80s; although I liked their CDs a lot, the explosion of World Music kinda dissuaded me from listening to them again for almost a decade.
I recently found "If I Should Fall from Grace with God" and "Hell's Ditch" and began to listen to them continuously for several weeks before I ordered "Peace and Love" from amazon, wanting to hear more of their stuff.
The Pogues really were a great band -- I'm not that much an afficinado to understand why McGowan left -- but I enjoy these 3 CDs for qualities which, to me, are absent in most of the music today: the diversity of their writing, the vibrancy of their musicanship, their gusto, and the emotional impact (like a bombshell) some of their best songs have. On this CD, I find myself drawn into their worlds with songs like "Gridlock", "Down All the Days", "Lorelei", "Cotton Fields" and "Blue Heaven".
"If I Should Fall from Grace with God" is probably their best album and one which would merit 4 **** stars from me -- but "Peace and Love" is up with 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars man, i love this record April 28 2002
Format:Audio CD
I never saw "My Left Foot" but know all the words to "Down All the Days." "Peace and Love" is the perfect mix of fun (Boat Train), anger (Young Ned of the Hill), and droll humor (Down All the Days). If I were a drinker, I'd drink to this. "Misty Morning, Albert Bridge" is a classic, and along with "Lorelai" really tempers the record, making it digestible even for someone who may be listening to the Pogues for the first time and thinks Irish rock is limited to the Cranberries (are they rock?).
