This is due to the fact that most of the world live in ignorance to the amazing songs, lyrics of "The Frames" and the greatest voice ever in Glen Hansard!
The third album from this Dublin group finds them in great form, dare i say bettering their first 2 albums ( If that was possible!). Immediately songs such as Star Star, Pavement tune & Perfect opening line stand out as Massive hits!But if you listen deeper into the album, you will hear the beauty of "Neath the bridges", the incredibly catchy "God bless mom" & the Sublime "Dance the devil..."....With the great excert from willy wonka near the end of that song(for those who noticed)
There is no doubt that "The Frames" will make it big & when they do, thousands will be reading these reviews - So i would just like to say "Welcome everybody to the world of The Frames & enjoy this album from the greatest rock band in existence!!
Intriguing soul-rock from a genuinely honest, refreshing band. This album is a hidden treasure... ignored by the critics and public for some strange reason. Take this album to bed, it deserves to be cuddled. It deserves attention and it demands respect (so no looking at other albums out the corner of your eye). In return, the crisp and chunky sound and great melodies will pay you back a millionfold.
After their passionate gig at The Borderline, my brother and I went misty eyed and made a pact there and then. Right on the dance-floor. We will go to Dublin and see them perform the next time.
Pay back time, you see. For all those times I listened to this album and got lost in a sea of cool.
their name has just returned to the shelves with their third longplayer out this summer. The charismatic Glen Hansard and associates have traveled a long and rocky road...and so they have a lot to tell. Their observations are full of passion, love, humour, poetry, anger as well as triumph. All those strong emotions are enforced by rich rhythms and great guitars and violins(!) Experimenting on one or two songs with what you might tag LOWFI or CYBERCOUNTRY they continue the tradition of well crafted fresh and inventive compositions. Trevor Horn gives a hand with some of the production and Craig Ward of dEUS also joined staff.The first three songs especially "seven day mile" are true gems...the more pensive "star star" is nevertheless great in style and message...for me however "rent day blues" is the highlight of the album "an maybe even" THE "ANTHEM" of the decade!!!(check it out as it might be coming out as an EP). Don't leave the Frames to the Irish!!...DISCOVER one of the greatest potential in "alive"(music with a soul!) "alternative" rock!!!!...this record will sure make you dance!!!!THUMBS UP-BIG TIME!!!!!! PS:if you get a chance to catch them live..GO!!!!! as they are such intense performers

A CD that should be in your collection. I think it is the best Frames CD in print. It will take you several listens to get into this CD, but once hooked, you are hooked. Read morePublished on August 5, 2004
