Released: 4 June 2002
Absolutely features 12 songs that capture the hellfire intensity and absorbing musical diversity of the Dubliners’ acclaimed live shows. This auspicious new album is a lyrical triumph as well, with the Dubliners spinning challenging yet optimistic stories that underscore the complexities of modern life. From the explosive strains of “Salvation” and “Jump in the Sea,” to the mug-hoisting balladry of “Scream” and the Dubliners’ spirited interpretation of Face’s 1973 classic “Ooh La La,” Absolutely lives up to its enthusiastic title.
Absolutely is also available for online download via iTunes.
