||The Pogues: Post Shane, part one.|
Waiting for Herb (1993) marks the first album without founding member (and leader) Shane Mac Gowan. Spider Stacy takes the lead vocal chores whilst Jem Finer writes the bulk of the material. This album is very good and has a lot of catchy tunes and great lyrics. Spider sounds a lot like Joe Strummer (some songs have two vocal tracks running at the same time) and the band members pick up the slack. Many fans abandoned the group when Shane left. But just because the inebriated celtic poet is not on the album doesn't mean it's not worth a listen. Great stuff that's worth the price. Followed by one more disc before going on a six year hiatus. Highly recommended.

||As Soulful as a Lunar Landscape|
Waiting for Herb was the remaining Pogues' attempt to make music without the leadership of Shane MacGowan- and it clearly shows here. The soul of the Pogues is gone, and they make a half-hearted attempt to keep the spirit that always distinguished the Pogues, but this attempt falls far short of the goal.
