The Man Who Built America Review

by Steven McDonald

A concept album about an Irish emigrant who makes a success of himself in the US, this album is energetic and often engaging, with some excellent songs ("The Man Who Built America") and some tepid stretches. The Irish content is fairly subdued here, with the overall sound favoring rock songs built around moderately complicated hooks.
