"My friend bought this album and I heard it. It was absolutely amazing. The power of The Frames live is quite intimidating. There are some tracks here that would easily beat some of the top bands today. Songs like Revelate, Lay Me Down(with a tremendous Johnny Cash tribute at the end, and Fitzcarraldo are unbelieveable, while Star Star would be the frames' best shot of indie pop stardom. Ireland's best kept secret and I have since went to see them live(Ulster hall, 20th Dec 2005)and they were great beyond belief. They did a bit of Snow Patrol's 'Run' during star star. Forget Hard-Fi, Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs, U2 and The Ordinary Boys, the Frames are the best band on earth."
Set List-Wish I was There
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The Frames, known for their brilliance live, have duly captured the charisma that makes them so good live on Set List. The album has all the old classics-Revelate, Lay Me Down, Fitzcarraldo and a new track the blood.
The album opens with old favourite revelate and glen and the boys don't fail to disappoint. Star Star is it's usual anthemic self, and the bit of 'pure imagination' is, well, pure genius.
Lay Me Down finishes stormily with a Johnny Cash 'ring of fire' tribute. The six minute thriller God Bless Mom is followed by my personal favourite, so what happens when the heart just stops. The song starts with a heartwarming anecdote about a dog the band knew when they were kids.
The catchy folk tune Rent Day Blues, with harmonicas and banjos of course is followed by the lively, almost violent Pavement tune and stars are underground.
Rob Bochnik, a recent addition to the band via Chicago, proves his worth on Santa Maria with some heavy, churning guitar riffs and then comes the old Favourite, eight minute epic that is Fitzcarraldo.
Overall, this is an album not to be missed, and it is a shame that the frames do not get the credit and indeed, recognition they deserve. The charisma and connection between Glen Hansard, his bandmates and the audience is astounding.
So, even if you have never heard of the frames, ever, buy it anyway. If you like indie rock at all, then this album will not disappoint. The frames are not like those laffy-daffy, overrated bands like Travis, the darkness and BellX1. In short, BUY THIS ALBUM!"
