Unbelievably Beautiful Music,
This review is from: The Swell Season (Audio CD)
I can't stop listening to this CD since I bought it last week. The songs just touch my soul with their beauty. It's a combination of the lyrics, the masterful musical arrangements, and the voices of Hansard and Irglova.
The songs are quite a departure for Glen Hansard. As the lead singer of the great Dublin band, The Frames, he is known for his emotional singing, yet his voice is often strained. Here he is subdued, subtle and filled with much more emotion.
And what can I say about the voice of Marketa Irglova? It is like an angels, particularly on Alone Apart.
Many of the songs on the CD are sung by the duo in the forthcoming film "Once". All I can say is I can't wait to see the film.

Check them out in the movie Once. Seeing the two perform together is also amazing. They are excellent and so is the movie.
