With their first full length CD, Old Dirt Road, Celtic Punk group Lexington Field is throwing their hat in the ring with Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys. Although they don't tend to stand out from the established Folk Punk crowd, they certainly step in the door with some tricks up their sleeve.

The CD starts off in full gear with “Dukes of Green”, opening with driving instrumentation and some awesome fiddle work. Unfortunately, as the song gets going, it is difficult not to get lost in the basic mood of the music and completely forget about any true merit or message the song might have. The elements of this first track seem to be pulling in their own directions with the lyrical content, and instrumentation getting lost in the overall mood of the track.

The band starts to pull their act together though on “The Shores of Maine”, with some awesome fiddle work, and the first real jewel. The message is still hard to follow, but the song is kept on track well. Unlike the flood of the first track, this piece is a river, kept in its banks by the fiddle On “Up in the sky” lyrics, message, and mood finally fit as one entity to carry each other.
