AllMusic Review by Bruce Eder

The follow-up to A Drop of the Hard Stuff, released earlier the same year, is every bit as good, filled with great and spirited renditions of songs about rebellion, whiskey, and independence, plus a sea song or two. This was also the album on which the group introduced its de facto signature tune, "Whiskey in the Jar"." The high spirits and the ebullience of the performances almost mask the fact that these guys are virtuoso players and second-to-nobody as singers -- as a result, the whole album rates multiple listens, even more so than its predecessor.
