I bought this album when I went to see The Frames in Union Chapel in May. That was only the fourth time I have seen them. That gig was amazing. It gave me the Goosebumps. All around me were a small group of people in a small venue singing along with Glen and pounding the floor to Colm’s violin. They played hits like “Star Star” interloping it with “Two Little Boys”, without any persuasion got the crowd to join in with “The Blood”. I left the venue feeling somehow that I cheated them, that the money I paid should have been a lot more. Curious to sample my new album I put it on straight away when I got home. This album evoked – and still does – all my memories and feelings from the gig and more, it was better. It used to be said of The Frames that to experience them in full you had to go to see them live. This is no longer true. If you are not yet a convert of the soon-to-be-worlds-biggest-band and you are looking an album that signifies the frames achievements then buy this album and then enjoy pursuing their back catalogue, because there are still some more gems awaiting discovery.
