iTunes Review

This album is Mastered for iTunes. Glen Hansard spent a good part of his career playing to capacity crowds in Ireland as the leader of the Frames. In the U.S., he is best known as one-half of the duo, The Swell Season, whose musical contributions to Once garnered them an Oscar. What seems to the public to be an overnight success has been in the works for decades. His solo debut captures Hansard's softer side, away from the dissonant feedback of his band and into the mystic that recalls Van Morrison at his most pastoral. Swell Season's Marketa Irglova adds harmonies to the transcendent opener, "You Will Become." With producer Thomas Bartlett (Antony and the Johnsons, The National) ensuring an organic balance of piano, acoustic guitars, and solid, permeating bass guitar, the album captures the feel of a small band playing in their corner of the room. "Maybe Not Tonight" is a luminous ballad. "Talking With the Wolves" steps up the rhythm section, while nothing rushes Hansard himself. It's a tour de force.

Customer Reviews

AMAZING!!!!

I absolutely love Glen's voice. His new album showcases it perfectly although I love it best when he is singing with Marketa Irglova as The Swell Season or The Frames. Nonetheless, great job. I love it!

Never disappointed

With anything glen does.

High Hope

This album is incredible. I have been a fan of Glen from when he was a member of the Frames and am so happy to see him do a solo album. His rhythms are amazing and his lyrics as raw and beautiful as ever. He never disappoints! This is definitely an album worth purchasing :)

Born to a working-class Dublin family during the spring of 1970, he left school at age 13 in search of making music his career.
