5.0 out of 5 stars TRULY WONDERFUL
This is amazing,its such value for money as you get live album and dvd as well as new album.
I am a devoted frames fan and have seen them many times so was a little cautious about "SWELL SEASON" stuff. The band are on here anyway and although it is not the wonderful frames it is an exceptional album.
I saw them at vicar street in dublin before christmas and...

If you've got Once don't bother with this. You're not missing anything you haven't already heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music that says "I gotta go to this place!", 4 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Strict Joy (Audio CD)
I bought this set on the back of seeing 'Once' and being totally blown away by it.

This album has gained 'production' which does detract from the rawness and beauty of 'Once', but I am touched by the words and phrasing of the two artists, so enjoyed it immensely. I just hope that future albums recapture the raw, fresh sound and style of GLen Hansard and the beauty of support from Mareta Irglova.

I was reminded many years ago of a young guitarist who, having heard a Bert Jansch album decided he must go to where he was and be inspired. I can't help feeling the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 27 Mar 2010
Having been a huge fan of The Frames I was a little disappointed Glen Hansard had wandered off into a new (albeit fantastic) collaboration. However, now The Frames and the Swell Season are together-ish and the result is wonderful. This album is just brilliant. The songs as always are beautiful and intense and Marketa sounds great on it, with a few more solos than on the last album. Glen Hansard as always though, steals the show with his incredible voice. This album is amazing and a definite must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exellent edition, 1 Dec 2009

This review is from: Strict Joy [2CD & DVD] (Audio CD)
An excellent album. The DVD and the concert are great.
It's a very complete edition with really good quality.

When you listen to the songs you understand and feel them,
although you don't speak English. This is a great band.
