About the Artist

'Once' is a 2006 Irish musical film written and directed by John Carney, former bassist for Irish band The Frames. Set in Dublin, this naturalistic drama stars musicians Glen Hansard (singer of, again, popular rock band The Frames) and Markéta Irglová as struggling musicians during an eventful week as they write, rehearse and record songs that reveal their unique love story. Collaborators prior to making the film, Hansard and Irglová composed and performed all of the original songs in the movie. Hansard and Irglová's song 'Falling Slowly' received a 2008 Academy Award for Best Original Song and the soundtrack as a whole also received a Grammy nomination. Steven Spielberg was quoted as saying 'A little movie called 'Once' gave me enough inspiration to last the rest of the year'.

Overall a great collection of songs : I would agree it does resonate more emotionally if you have seen the film first , as the music is integral to it. However I did buy this before I had had a chance to see the film (it didn't get that wide a release unfortunately) and the songs still stand up very well by themselves.

Glen Hansard was previously in The Commitments and latterly the band The Frames so the musical pedigree is very good. A couple of the tracks have previously seen the light of day on the most recent Frames album "The Cost" (2006) ("Falling Slowly", "When Your Mind's Made Up") while "Say It to Me Now" goes all the way back to their mid-90's album "Fitzcarraldo" , but the arrangements/versions here are new - the latter revisited as a belter solo effort with just acoustic guitar.

The style is more folky and softer than Hansard's band The Frames, which are also highly recommended if you like the music here - as mentioned before their last album "The Cost" is similar in tone to this.

(As an introduction to the Frames I would recommend you start with The Frames 2002's live album "Set List" , and either "Fitzcarraldo" & "Dance with the Devil". )

The film is a must see, very real emotions are portrayed through the songs. I was truly moved by the songs especially "When your minds made up" I have not had a song move me to utter sobbing, since watching Sinead O'Conner cry on her video years ago. The soundtrack, is what I want in my life, to play in the car and sing to,at the top of my voice, before facing the world. Watch the film and buy the cd, they are fantastic.

I can count the number of film soundtracks I've bought on two hands, this is one of the best. Outside of the category of film soundtracks it's still one of the best albums I've heard in a while.

A superb effort from two talented musicians, I really hope the do something together again soon.

If you have seen the film then you will probably want this album .. and if you have not seen the film then you are missing a treat.
The film itself is basically the story of a guy (Glen Hansard who you may remember from The Commitments)with a dream of being a songwriter who meets a girl(The enigmatic pianist Marketa Iglova) who is searching for a dream too,By day Glen repairs vacuum cleaners (reflected upon in the Loudon Wainwrightesque Broken Hearted Hoover Fixer Sucker Guy) for his father or busks on the streets of that fair city,Dublin playing his broke down old guitar.The genius of the project is that it is the lyrics of the songs themselves that tell the back stories of the lead protagonists and move the plot along without the need for a lot of needless dialogue.
The film then follows their growing relationship and the making of a demo disc (comprising these songs) they enlist the help of a local Thin Lizzy Tribute Band they find busking under the statue of the late Phil Lynott.
They book a studio and impress a world weary sound engineer who becomes enchanted by their heartfelt songs.
But what about the songs
Falling Slowly the opener wets the appetite with its nautical theme it reminds the listener of Dublin's proximity to the sea and life as a voyage.
"take this sinking boat and point it home.."
the song will appeal to those who like Fionn Regan,Damien Rice or David Gray etc, Marketa adds another dimension to it but on the second song she takes the lead vocals on If you Want Me.
When your mind's Made up has a sound the hints at Badly Drawn Boy or the heartfelt ballards of Lucky Jim.

I saw the film first and bought myself this cd afterwards. I love every song on it. If it's the music from the film that you want it's all on here. I'd highly recommend this cd.

As a songwriter I am forever converted to five beats in the bar as well as on occation a simple approach to songwriting. The songs on this album are stunning, and just like the film, wake something that has been asleep for a while. I feel sorry for the people for whom this is not their cup of tea.

Those who enjoyed the music in John Carney's modern musical 'Once' will no doubt be pleased to see all the songs accounted for with extras. Admittedly, listening to this CD from start to finish cannot quite match the brilliance of the way in which the songs are presented in the film. Perhaps due to the ordering of the tracks, something has been lost in transferring the material from movie reel to CD, and they fail to gather the same momentum or impact.

However, that said, there are some real gems in the album. Rightfully the triumphant and touching 'Falling Slowly' wins the accolades, while a powerful acoustic version of 'Say It To Me Now' will also be a favourite for many. But amongst these flagships, there are excellent tracks that did not feature so prominently in the film. The title track 'Once' is beautifully arranged and performed with echoes of Turin Brakes at their finest. Barely touched in the motion picture, 'Leave' is a real highlight, moving with ease from a gentle acoustic ballad into a more hard hitting indy strummer at the end of the track.

Overall, this is a good collection of songs inspired from routes in folk music and the indy and rock-pop bands of the 90s. Most listeners will appreciate.
