Fisherman’s Blues is a 1988 album by The Waterboys. The album marked a change in the sound of The Waterboys’, abandoning their earlier grandiose rock sound for a mixture of traditional Irish music, traditional Scottish music, country music, and rock and roll. Critics were divided on its release with some disappointed at the change of direction and others ranking it among The Waterboys’ best work.[3] The album was the Waterboys’ best selling album, reaching a number 13 placing on the U.K. charts on release, and 76 on the Billboard 200.
