Stumbling upon this album, seemingly by chance was an unforgettable experience. I am somebody who believes in music to awaken emotion from within, to enhance and enlighten the way in which we view the world and of its importance, to our own everyday lives. This album is my inspiration with its raw emotion, subtlety, aesthetic qualities and technical excellence. Kicking off with graceful aggression is 'Revelate', something that I have used countless times for physical theatre and experiments with film. A superb track that would stand out on any other album but merely sets the standard of quality here that keeps on building as this profound album, like rapid-fire, switches through your emotions with a vice like grip. 'Angel at my Table', the second track, is a wonderful experience, full of passion and uncertainty, bringing in the best elements of 'Revelate' but counter-attacking with a gentle softness, as a listener it's like being caught between heaven and hell whilst being spiritually uplifted and repeatedly stabbed in the back. 'Fitzcarraldo', the title track softens the pace yet continuously builds into a stunningly put together song. 'Say it to me Now' and 'Red Chord' are absolutely brilliant, 'Red Chord', a song that seems to be universally loved by all who are privelleged to hear this band, is emotionally intense and very moving. The other tracks on this album are all brilliant and would stand out on most other albums, 'Fitzcarraldo' is a great, great album.....come on people by this album, it'll have a profound effect on your lives, think about its cinematic potential, unrelenting energy, the way it collides through different emotions, continuously changing gear and always surprising.Read more ›

I first heard The Frames on the Chicago morning radio show, Mancow. I had to hear more... Once I heard some samples, I got Fitzcarraldo, Dance the Devil, and For the Birds from Amaxon.co.uk and had them shipped here to the US. I enjoy Fitzcarraldo the most - the mix of violins, soft lyrics with rock chords, and the unique sound of Glen's voice - make this the best band I've never heard of.
I just purchased Set List and Burn the Maps and I plan on seeing them on March 5th in Chicago. They recently received a great review in Blender Music Magazine for Burn the Maps... I hope The Frames catch on outside of Ireland and the UK - they really deserve it!

Giving a taste of this bands powerful live performance, 'Fitzcarraldo' is a truly intense musical treat. 'Angel at my Table' and Red Chord are the high points of the album, where lead singer Glen Hansard's voice is truly stunning. Definatly one of my top 10 favourite albums, ever.

I'm a firm believer in the power of the intro on the first song of an album. Look at "Cherub Rock" on Smashing Pumpkins "Siamese Dream". Here you have "Revelate" ... a cool guitar intro and then power ... An album where abused guitars sit perfectly with the sweetness of Colm's violin. And the bass lines just jump out.
Amazing

I "discovered" Glen Hansard through the film "Once" and then just had to have more of his voice and lyrics. Fresh and exhilarating.
