Very special

I fell in love with Glen and Marketa after watching Once, and didn't take the soundtrack off the iPod for many weeks. I have bought the film for numerous friends. Now this, the Swell Season. There are two or three Once songs on here, beautifully rearranged, but that's a total bonus. The rest of it is just heartbreakingly gorgeous.

Personal favourites would probably be The Moon, Alone Apart and The Swell Season (outside of the Once tracks).
