Review

Southern California's Young Dubliners may share a name with one of Ireland's most famous folk bands, but they draw their musical inspiration from Celtic rockers like U2, the Boomtown Rats, and Big Country. On Absolutely, the Young Dubs deliver a dozen songs that range from the guitar-driven anthem "Salvation" to the barroom bellow "Brown Dog" to the power ballad "These Days." While the band's chunky electric guitars and funky rhythms are rock & roll to the core, the fiddling of Chas Waltz gives the grooves a distinctly Celtic lilt, especially on the instrumental "Unreel" and the sweetly nostalgic cover of the Faces' "Ooh La La." The Young Dubliners are a very popular stage act--their fans crowd the front of the stage in "jig pits" rather than mosh pits--and even though they will never be mistaken for a traditional folk group, the music of the Young Dubs moves to the undeniable rhythm of a Celtic heartbeat. --Michael Simmons
