Commentary on Irish American: 

 “With spirited picking and energetic sing-along choruses supporting appropriately weathered lead vocals, the repertoire is nine traditional Irish tunes plus a couple of originals: Alexy’s title track, which suggests an outtake from Workingman’s Dead while telling his own family’s immigration tale, and Berry’s sprightly jig “Miss K’s Fancy.” - City Pages

”The TBT members still continue to carve out interesting music on the side. The record features a pair of sweet original tunes alongside traditionals and musical contributions from members of Pert Near Sandstone and TBT violinist Ryan Young, who helmed the recording in his Cold War-era bunker studio.” - Star Tribune
