Alestorm has developed a taste for songwriting that weighs heavily on party-style dance-metal tunes that could fly in any nightclub if they didn't smell so strongly of marine life, and No Grave But The Sea delivers the hearty "Mexico" and heavily hardcore "Alestorm" to follow up "Magnetic North" and the cover of Taio Cruz's "Hangover." It's good to see the band embrace such a fun, high-energy, and catchy style, especially because the strictly traditional folk metal sea shanties have begun to sound a little formulaic. I don't know if Alestorm could in good faith abandon its "serious" metal roots entirely and become a purely party band, but it's a shame they don't at least do so more often.

Not sure if I'm more excited for Fucked with an Anchor or Rage of the Pentahook.

"Fucked With An Anchor" chorus have been in my head all day. Glorious lyrics!

Self-titled song is where it's at. That will be a lot of fun live.

Drops off at the end, but the first 6 or 7 tracks were very enjoyable

Not so bad
Fucked with an anchor is fortunately the only really bad track IMO (and the problem for me is not the lyrics but the poor song quality : always the same quorus, a 10-second-long solo...).
But it is without a doubt the worst album from Alestorm, and the MS rating confirms my opinion.

Initially I was quite disappointed, but after repeat listens my opinion improved. Certainly not as the good as the 2014 release but definitely not their worst
