Product Description

Product Description

Originally released in 1995, Fitzcarraldo was The Frames' second album and featured the brilliant singles Revelate and Monument. On the strength of this album, Time Out declared them Ireland's best band since U2 . And Hot Press reviewed Revelate as this year s Everybody Hurts... a stone cold classic. The Frames were founded in 1990 by Academy Award-winning songwriter Glen Hansard. In 2006, after six Frames albums, he formed The Swell Season with Czech singer Markéta Irglová. The pair then acted in the Irish film Once and wrote and recorded its lead song, Falling Slowly, which won a 2008 'Oscar' for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture. In recent months, Hansard has released a second Swell Season album, Strict Joy, returned to his busking roots, alongside Bono and Damien Rice, playing Dublin's Grafton Street in aid of the Simon Community, and auctioned a house concert on eBay in aid of the Haiti earthquake appeal.

I have only recently discovered The frames after watching the film 'Once' and then googling Glen Hansard! Such a shame they weren't promoted in the UK - definitely our loss. This album is really raw with lots of energy and reminded me of some of the earlier Springsteen songs when he had so much to say in his lyrics and so much energy and enthusiasm for the music he was creating. Hansard's passion is as obvious.

One Star because the Physical CD quality is deplorable, cheap quality such that over a year or two of use it will become unplayable, (Glen Hansard take note please).
As I have done since I bought my first CD in the 90's, I signed my initials on the back of the CD, not realising that the cheap quality of the CD meant that the optical readside of the CD was therefore damaged with a reverse image of the initials.
(laying a CD down on its' non-playing side is no longer a safe option).
CD is irreparable and a lesson has been learned.
(Music is excellent (undamaged tracks) - which I already knew, hense the reason for buying in the first place).

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Band Offers Re-Release with Bonus Tracks 13 Jun. 2014
By vanatic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of heartfelt, melodic and passionate music and aren't familiar with the The Frames, you are missing out on something special. They are frequently compared to U2, but I think that is unfair, Bono and company are more of an arena band, with anthemic songs being their calling card. The Frames can rock with the best of them, but there is a warmth and accessibility to their music and performances that I find missing from most of U2's work. There is nothing "corporate" about the Frames' music, they are the "handcrafted microbrew" of their genre.

I must admit, I was late to the "fan club", not discovering this gem of a band until I fell in love with Glen Hansard's songs in the film and Broadway musical "Once" (many of which first appeared on Frames albums). I have since made up for lost time by purchasing all of the Frames albums and DVD. They are all outstanding, made even better by the inclusion of b-sides and unreleased tracks on these re-releases of their earlier albums.

Give these guys a listen, I promise you won't be disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best band ever 14 Jun. 2014
By zentrainer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I keep thinking that the last Frames CD I got was the best and then I go back and get another and it's the new best.

I remember at first I didn't like this one. (Shoot me, I didn't like Exile on Main Street at first either and it's hands down the best album ever.)

I thought it was overproduced and that Glen Hansard sounded like someone had tied him to a chair and muffled him. And I think it isn't as raw as the later stuff but is still GREAT.

Red Chord pulled on me first and then when I could pronounce Fitzcarraldo right every time I knew I loved this album. It crept up on me. I can't remember when I got it but it's still in rotation in the CD player in my car.

3.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed...(but not as much as originally thought) 7 April 2011
By Clau Regazzo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong as I am a huge fan of Glen Hansard. I've seen The Frames in concert twice, Swell Season in concert twice, as well as a solo show of his. I previously owned "Dance the Devil", "Set List", "For the Birds" and "The Cost", plus all the Swell Season material. So, I thought buying one of the earlier Frames discs would be rewarding. This album is so lacking in energy and tragically restrained. If you are accustomed to (or prefer) Glen's unbelievable charisma and energy you may likely be as bored and disappointed as I am listening to it. There are a couple of good tracks on here that any Frames fan will recognize, but even those are poor versions of what you will find elsewhere. For instance, the opening track of "Revelate" is a beat slower than what you've heard in their live performances, and "Say It To Me Now" is a total disaster here if your first exposure to it was in "Once". It's obvious The Frames made a colossal leap forward from this disc to the subsequent "Dance the Devil".

Do yourself a favor and buy/download individual tracks unless you want it in your library to complete your Glenn Hansard collection.

*** Edit ***
I adjusted my rating from 2 stars to 3 as I gave the CD a few more listens over the past few weeks. Some of the songs have grown on me. A perfect example is "Monument" which I thought was mediocre at first. "Say it to Me Now" though is still a ruined song to me here. Comparing the overall album to For the Birds or Dance the Devil (which are masterpieces) does not make this below average.
