Product Description

CD Description

The Frames second and final LP for ZTT, Dance the Devil... was released in 1999 as were its singles Pavement Tune and Rent Day Blues and became an immediate critical smash; hailed as an enthralling, chilled-out listen by Music Week and praised for its shimmering greatness by the Irish Times. The Frames were founded in 1990 by Academy Award-winning songwriter Glen Hansard. In 2006, after six Frames albums, he formed The Swell Season with Czech singer Markéta Irglová. The pair then acted in the Irish film Once and wrote and recorded its lead song, Falling Slowly, which won a 2008 'Oscar' for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture. In recent months, Hansard has released a second Swell Season album, Strict Joy, returned to his busking roots, alongside Bono and Damien Rice, playing Dublin's Grafton Street in aid of the Simon Community, and auctioned a house concert on eBay in aid of the Haiti earthquake appeal.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Frames' flawless masterwork 18 Jun 2003
By dave
Format:Audio CD
The Frames - for those of you unlucky enough not to have been initiated into their unique brand of music - are an irish band, fronted by Glen Hansard of 'the Commitments' fame. Despite this, their music seems to have been ignored by most people outside of Ireland, which is a shame, especially when they can make albums like this one.
It might be easy to dismiss 'Dance the Devil...' at first listen. After all, what on this album hasn't been done before? There's the stadium-rock of U2, acoustic ballads, reflections on life without money, and so on. But insidiusly and effortlessly you'll find the simple variety of music on offer, and the earnestness with which it is sung and played, will cause it to creep inside your head and stay there forever.
The album opens with 'Perfect Opening Line', and to be corny, the track does live up to its name, starting with a soft guitar strum and barely spoken words and building into a rocking chorus. 'Seven day mile' is a little quieter, a fairly simple tune that bubbles along to leave you feeling better at the end. 'Pavement tune', produced by a certain Trevor Horn, quite simply rocks in the best possible way. 'Plateau' is a simpler song again, illustrated by some excellent violin work. 'Star Star**' is almost acoustic, stealing elements from the kid's song without ever delving into the realms of twee. 'The stars are underground' manages to reflect the previous song whilst using bass and guitars to create an off-kilter feel. 'God Bless Mom' is rocky again, and I prefer this version (apparently disowned by the band) to the current arrangement they play live. 'Rent day blues' is an excellent track telling the story of, uh, blues when the rent is due. 'Hollocaine' has a weird tone, using stabs of distorted guitar through the chorus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please, Please, Please give us the next album! 25 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Fitzcarraldo was a brilliant raw emotional rollercoaster which took so me high and low that listening to it was a physically draining experience. Although Dance the Devil has little of the first album's emotional intensity, the result is a much more mature, polished sound (without sounding over-produced). Once again the frames have produced one of those albums which you will never need to use the skip track button to enjoy. This is a giveaway at twice the price! NB.. I recently saw this lot live and they blew me away..not only were they musically brilliant, but the performed with humour and real intensity. They are also a really nice group of guys, who deserve all the success they can get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music to fall in love with!!! 30 May 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard this album when I was lucky enough to catch Glen comparing a show on RTE in 2003.

I just fell in love with 'Star Star'.

Since then I have seen the group live 5 times in Belfast and will hopefully see them a lot more.

This is their definitive album and the one I always harken back to.

The other reviews say it all in respect to the songs, just buy and listen. It is pure magic.

In my mind this album is up there with 'Hats' by The Blue Nile. A timeless classic you will go back to again and again.

Glen get yout finger out and release another 'Frames' Album ik has been too long!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wondertastic... 16 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The frames have produced a wonderful album here. Straying not from their rock roots they have also produced some mellow classics such as Seven Day Mile, a song about their relationship with their drummer who was unsure about the bands direction. As a recently converted fan I urge, dispell every mith you have heard, and start afresh with this amazing peice of Irish recording from one of the best of the best in Ireland.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wanna be Irish 21 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
Let me first ask a couple of questions - do you like Damien Rice? Yes? Well you'll have been a little frustrated then that there's precious little else like him around or from him. Apart from the Frames that is. Secondly, when was the last time you bought an album that you found yourself singing along to the second song of an album,on the first time that you heard it, at the top of your voice, or shouted 'yes!!' to a lyric??
Its been a while since the last review on this album and time has set it in context. Always destined to be Ireland's second best band?? This album simply makes you want to be Irish. Its a magnificently engaging intimate but uplifting effort that draws you in, in turns euphoric, then melancholic and then hard rocking. But this is not posturing stadium rock a la latter day U2, but the very essence of small to medium venue alt/country Irish rock, updated and delivered with real bite and passion. This album whispers and shouts to you. It sounds fresher now than 5 years ago.
Who should buy this? Anyone who thinks Gary Lightbody can do no wrong, fans of Damien Rice/Juniper/Bell X1 (who? you better go find out - see Flock!) I'd been downloading every Frames track I could find off Kazaa since the moment I found them till I worked out the best 3 albums then bought all 3 together. When was the last time you bought 3 albums by one band? My advice? Don't blag it, don't download it BUY THIS ALBUM with confidence. 5 stars means 'I will always treasure this album and remember what I was doing when I bought it'. This IS a 5 star album. Highlights abound- 'star star' because I have a live cover by Damien Rice of U2's Still Haven't found..

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner
As far as Irish bands are concerned, The Frames are much lore interesting as, say, U2. This release is ample proof that Glen & Co. are in a league of their own.
