The follow-up ro the Dance The Devil album is a logical progression in sound and style. With beautiful odes to love and loss (Headlong, Lay Me Down, Giving Me Wings) imbued with a hint of old school country, and with rousing anthemic tunes like Mighty Sword and Santa Maria, the songwriting skills of Glen Hansard have never been so finely tuned to produce excellence. A record made with passion and love, beautifully soothing, and ideal for long winter evenings by a roaring fireside. Great stuff

this album is amazing, everyone should own it. the subtley and the way the songs build from nothing to big climaxes is amazing. the raw passion of songs like lay me down (which is the best song ever in my humble opinion) and friends and foe, then the slow build-ups and near sexual release of songs like santa maria. it's just fantasic understated music, stuff that sends tingles down the back of your spine. it's a mix of U2 and damien rice. this should be a must in anyone who can appreciate good music's cd collection. buy it!!

In short, one of the most enjoyable listens ever recorded. Perfect for long wintry evenings sprawled out in front of the fire, it sounds as fresh now as it did when I bought it over a year ago.

Quite simply the album of 2001. Whereas Dance the Devil always hinted at the potential for an album about the exquisitely flawed fallout of love and loss, the pure delight at hearing something which grabs you by the heart on the second listen and refuses to let go is enough to restore your faith in music a hundred times over. Headlong.. What Happens When The Heart Just Stops.. one song after another flows with almost ferocious feeling. This is definitely an organic album with all the parts making up the sum of the whole; partly thanks to Albini's production and the band's own incredible chemistry when playing live. This is music to mend hearts.

The Frames are put together an album of perfect combination of music, lyrics and timing. The songs can rock, they can also move like a breeze. The deepness of Hansard's voice in "Headlong" to the jam that is the end of the song just capture what is so savage about this band.
This was the album of the year, and could well be the album of this year too.

I bought this on the basis of others Amazon reviews and not surprisingly (given the zealot like praise) was slightly disappointed. While I'm not adverse to a bit of fragility (John Martyn/David Kitt/Jeff Buckley et al) this one was just too low key.
While there are definitley some beautiful tender moments on the Album (Headlong/When the Heart Stops) it is a pleasant, not great listen and, after a fortnight on my stereo, it made a quick move to the great CD cabinet in the sky.
