    'Going Out In Style' has the exact same problem as their precursor, 'The Meanest Of Times': Most of the songs lack in having rememberable choruses, or at least guitar riffs/solos. The first three tracks of the CD are quite nice, the rest is nothing fancy. They should definitely gussy up their music with a new touch, a bagpipe used in every single song gets just boring in time. Too wishy-washy.

    Though it may not be remembered as their greatest work, Going Out in Style is a risk the band needed to take, and the payoff is well worth it.

    There's nothing innovative here, per se, but what exactly did you want from the Dropkick Murphys? Oh, that's right: a party.

    Boston's finest prove that far from having nothing left to say, they're just getting started. [Apr 2011, p.114]
