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.
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
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... Read morePublished on July 7 2003 by Greekfreak
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... Read morePublished on April 28 2002 by "dusti-shmusti"
it's an inconsistent album. Doesn't have the same kick as the albums that preceded it. The tracks Tombstones, Cotton Fields, USA, and Down All Days are examples of what I'm talking... Read morePublished on Feb. 27 2002
The best Pogues LP is the classic IF I SHOULD FALL FROM GRACE WITH GOD.
PEACE & LOVE is a strong second place. Read more
I'm a great Pogues fan and love pretty much all their stuff (except that latest green-on-black album), but this is the first of our worn-out cassettes I'm looking to replace on CD. Read morePublished on May 17 2000 by Jasmijn
While this cd probably isn't their best one, Peace and Love has some unforgettable songs on it. My favorites: "Young Ned of the Hill", which truly does make me want to... Read morePublished on Jan. 20 2000 by Suze
If you already own "If I Should Fall From Grace With God", this is your next choice.
Wonderful, even though its near the end of Shane's creative input with the... Read more
