Street Dogs

Fading American Dream

DRT 455

Released on October 24, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Street Dogs include in their ranks members of two of Beantown’s modern punk heroes, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Dropkick Murphy’s. Their first release for DRT Back to the World laid the seeds of punk greatness that Street Dogs are sure to sew this time around. Fading American Dream, which features guest spots from members of both Flogging Molly and The Pogues, is a rousing diatribe on the current state of affairs, both a love letter to the common man and a With Sympathy card to the US political system that has failed him.

For my money this is the best Street Dogs record yet. Tobe's Got a Drinking Problem is an absolute anthem that I can't wait to hear live but the same can be said for all the songs on the record. Simply Awesome. Buy it NOW!

Great album. I have been listening to these guys since they started, and it seems every album gradually becomes more talented and diverse. I really like the Billy Bragg cover song, and "Final Transmission" is an instant classic. Check it out.

This is a cracker of a cd by the street dogs they have added a little more irishness/folkness i would call it and maybe not as punky as back to the world which i think is there best work. The cd starts with a couple of great tracks in common people & not without a purpose then calms down a bit but again picks up with power in the union & tobe. Its a kind of start-stop cd,just when the punkier tunes starts it slows down again. Don't let me put you of this cd because it is top quality and very good song writing by the guys. All i can say is buy this cd & back to the world if you have a few quid($)you won't be disapointed i Guarantee it. p.s get the cd with the dvd its a good wee film

in my opinion. this album tops Savin Hill and Back to The World immensely. Their isnt a song on here that I skip. The overall catchiness in the songs and the hooks are awesome make ya wanna pump your first and sing along. Great album. Great Job Mike and Co.

I'm only giving this a three-star rating because it's McColgan. Anyone else and I would rate this a one-star! I'm a huge fan of Mikey and all his previous work ("Do or Die"/"Savin Hill"/"Back to the World"). I have be honest; this album is less than mediocre. It's not even B-side worthy. The things Mike is singing about are great ideas for songs, but there just not translating to this music well. It's really hard for me to sit through this album. I really think McColgan suffers from the same problem Michael Graves does... he needs to be around better song writers. Mikey your extremely talented and I love ya but this album is beneath you. I'm sure you and the boys put alot of work into it, but I know you can do better. The DVD is pretty boring as well. I paid extra for this CD/DVD combo and i'm really let down with this release. If you are a big fan of McColgan you might want to get this, but get his other material first.

This CD is amazing! Much harder and more driving than either of the previous two albums. A really solid album all the way through. There are two songs that change it up a little, "Shards Of Life", its got a traditional irish sound to it with the accordion and such, a fun song, even if its not about a fun subject, and "Final Transmission" is just guitar and vocals. They are much softer than the rest, but fit the album perfectly. The CD been playing in my cd most of the day since I got it and will be for a long time to come. If you are considering it, BUY IT!!

The DVD is pretty good too. It is mostly of the band talking about their music, each other and some other stories thrown in there too.

So pretty much this album is rocking.... not sure if it's better than their previous 2 releases(Savin Hill and Back To The World), but that definitely takes nothing away from the work they did here with this album... it's refreshing to see a band not change it's sound for money! Best song in my humble opinion is either "Common People" or "Final Transmission". Definitely pick up this album if you were a fan of their first 2 releases...
