Streams of Whiskey takes the subtleties and peculiar genius of the Pogues and smashes them into a big loud mess. The concert took place after Hell's Ditch, the last album MacGowan made with the band, and the fourteen songs cover all of their records together. They start with exciting performances of "Streams of Whiskey," "If I Should Fall from Grace with God," and a tight reading of "Sally MacLennane." It's also interesting to hear Philip Chevron take the vocals on his song "Thousands Are Sailing" (MacGowan sings it on the original)-- his singing is more earnest and heartfelt. MacGowan's own vocals get progressively worse throughout the show; he hacks out "Dirty Old Town" like phlegm from his lungs, and the otherwise terrific lyrics to "The Sickbed of Cuchulainn" just slur together.

The poor quality of the album keeps even the best numbers from living up to the studio versions. Now that this is packaged as a real release instead of a bootleg, it comes off as a substandard product. The mix is incompetent, for starters: Terry Woods' vocals are cut off on "Young Ted of the Hill," and on songs like "The Sunny Side of the Street," MacGowan's singing and Spider Stacey's tin whistle come through loud and clear (with every bum note on display) while the rest of the band is stuck in a murk. To add insult to injury, MacGowan's name is even misspelled on the cover.

This would deserve a worse rating, except that ultimately, it's too damn much fun. This was obviously a great concert and everyone is having a blast. And no matter how sloppy MacGowan gets, he's still a hell of a frontman. His stuporous singing and the farting horn sounds on "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" don't stop the song from rocking. From the title track through "Fiesta," the band is unrelenting, and it sounds like you're listening from the second row, mashed in by hundreds of screaming fans. This may not be an essential album, but it's a great souvenir for the hardcore fans. Everyone else should wait for the real live album, just like the Pogues want you to.
