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 they were amazing,Marketa has a voice like an a angel andthe two compliment each other very well.
The boys from the band are very much part of it and we were lucky enough to get a few tunes from The Frames too.
Buy this album without hesitation,i cannot stop listening to it,its amazing

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD
The really lovely thing about Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard's
new album 'Strict Joy' is its refreshing lack of affectation.
Soulful folk if ever there were such.

The Swell Season's third album, while offering no big
surprises, continues a line of work defined by solid
song-writing and emotionally believable performances.

They are ably assisted in making their musical dreams
come alive by a competent and sympathetic ensemble.
No stars or egos here, just a nice buch of chums
doing what they love and loving what they do.

'In These Arms' is a magical song.
Mr Hansard's warm and gentle approach to the narrative
is beautifully enhanced by Ms Irglova's vocal harmonies,
tentative piano and an ethereal violin.

'Feeling The Pull' works up a good sweat!
A fine tune driven along by Graham Hopkins' energetic
drumming and plenty of full-on strumming!

'The Rain' delivers one of the album's strongest compositions.
The episodic structure weaves in and out of some
texturally interesting highs and lows.
The writers fully understand the value of light and shade;
when to push forward and when to hold back.
Understatement is a rare and undervalued commodity these days.

'High Horses' is another fine example of the same principle.
There is substantial tension and anticipation engendered by
the build-up of layer upon layer of vocal and instrumental sound.
A simple and singular idea beautifully realised.

'I Have Loved You Wrong' is Ms Irglova's finest moment.
Her plaintive voice breathes life into the sad heart of the song.
It is the album's loveliest moment by a mile.

Like almost everyone else, I first heard of the duo through the beautiful motion picture 'Once'. From that I became a big fan of The Frames, and after seeing The Swell Season live I immediately purchased their first self-titled album and the 'Once' soundtrack.

The first album was nice, they clearly have great musical chemistry, but it was nothing life changing. I would put it on in the background but it certainly wasn't an earth shaking release for me.

'Strict Joy' is a truly special album. Not only does it showcase a richer and more interesting sound than their previous efforts, it seems to be thematically centered on the duo's real life break up. This makes the album, at times intense, at times heartbreaking and at times strangely uplifting. It is also musically closer to The Frames, which is no bad thing.

First track 'Low Rising' is a soulful song and great single, catchy and a joy to listen to. Other album highlights include 'I have loved you wrong', Marketa Irglova's masterpiece. It is heartbreaking, fragile and almost Sigur Ros like.

This album is more interesting, more emotion filled, and despite the dark subject matter, a joy to listen to. Highly recommended to anyone who is a fan of Glen and Mar.

OK First things first, this is an excellent CD from an excellent bunch of artists. And if you've been lucky enough to see them live then you'll get to relive some of that special magic on the live CD and live DVD. My only gripe is with what's listed here on Amazon as the Deluxe Ed. track list. It doesn't match it at all.
This Deluxe edition does indeed have 3 discs, the Main CD is the new album called of course Strict Joy and contains the 12 new tracks. The Live 'Audio' CD has just 14 tracks as listed inside the CD Sleeve and NOT the 20 tracks listed here on Amazon. This is where I'm most disappointed as it was one of the missing tracks I deliberately bought the Limited Deluxe Edition Strict Joy for. Other than that, couldn't recommend the actual music more.

I love this album but, as stated by another reviewer, the track listing stated on Amazon for the bonus live CD is incorrect and it contains only 14 tracks, not the 20 stated. The tracks which are missing from the live CD are Say It To Me Now; Gigantic; Go With Happiness; Blue Shoes; Star Star; The Auld Triangle. There is an MP3 version on Amazon which contains the full album and all of the live tracks including those missing from the CD other than, for some bizarre reason, Blue Shoes. Whether or not this can be obtained via other download sites I don't know. Personally I still prefer to have the physical CDs and so was a little disappointed at not getting everything I was expecting.

That said it's still a great package and you can't blame the artist for someone else listing their product incorrectly.
