Glen Hansard "Didn't He Ramble"
When one hits 'play' on a Glen Hansard solo album, one expects to hear the passionate, soul-baring intensity of so many Irish singer/songwriters. And, if so, you'll be quite satisfied with Hansard's second solo album (after many years as frontman for the band, The Frames, and several albums in partnership with his Once movie co-star, Marketa Irglova). Although Hansard doesn't rock out like he frequently would with The Frames, his songs still almost always capture a sense of exhilaration—sometimes borne of the lyrics' hopeful determination, other times stemming from soaring melodies. It's a highly-recommended emotional experience for all.
