We wake up in the sunshine every day

I have no idea why I ever bought Absolutely by the Young Dubliners. None. But here it is, my next album on Declan, staring me right in the face.

The Young Dubliners play this sort of Celtic influenced catchy rock that's easy to listen to but provokes no thought whatsoever. I've always liked my music to make me think about stuff so this whole album is pretty forgettable (especially the terrible cover of "Ooh La La" at the end).

I will add, though, that I bought Absolutely when I was working as a photographer and spending several hours a day driving around in my car. I listened to the album several times in those days when a little mindless music wasn't always a bad thing.
