    Diehard fans might miss Flogging Molly's manic moments, but Darkness' lyrical depth--and sonic diversity--are incredibly rewarding. [Jun 2011, p.111]

    It's the songs where King and the band take chances that keep Speed of Darkness interesting. These curveballs make the album another strong addition to the Flogging Molly catalog and keep them from getting stuck in a rut.

    If you're already familiar with Flogging Molly, then Speed of Darkness isn't going to disappoint, and if you're not a fan yet, there's no better time to jump on the wagon than today.

    The overly smooth production undercuts his righteous fury, suggesting the group harbors dreams of a Green Day-style commercial breakthrough.

    Although the songs on Speed Of Darkness have a heavy theme, this fifth album by the band is anything but sorrowful.

    It's another diverse and engaging album from a band proudly aging like a fine malt whiskey. [28 May 2011, p.51]

    Speed Of Darkness dishes up more of the same. [July 2011, p. 120]
