    Yes please and thank you. Glen Hansard's voice never fails to impress me.

    Nice! Didn't know he was putting out new material.

    I didn't know this either. Had the same experience after his last album!

    Hard to believe his career really took off 10 years ago already. It's been 11 years since Once. Christ.

    Slow down, Quentin Supporter

    I am so excited for this. From the pre-release tracks, looks like he's continuing down the direction he explored on A Season on the Line. More horns, more groove. Can't wait!

    This is so mellow haha, really enjoying it right now, perfectly suits my mood this morning. I would go as far to say this is probably his most accessible material too, perhaps besides Swell Season.

    The “Thunder Road” reference in the opener makes me really happy.

    Not a fan of how depressing/down all the lyrics are; guess that's why the music itself is so mellow too. Just not an enjoyable listen for me. Least favorite of his three albums

    Yeah so far I think I like it the least also.

    I like it, but there's definitely not enough variation in tempo or mood. He rarely uses the part of his voice that I really love, either. Easily his weakest solo disc, I think.

    I really like this, definitely doesn't vary much, but I enjoy its overall vibe. I don't find it depressing though. Think right now I prefer this to R&R, which still feels dreary to me towards the end, but not as much as Ramble.

    Rhythm and Repose is my favorite record of his by far. This doesn't touch it and I sadly don't feel the need to listen again.

    The first half of Rhythm & Repose is significantly better than the second half, but it’s still a great record overall.

    True. Everything from "you will become" (maybe my favorite song of his) through "the storm, it's coming" is basically perfect

    I guess the only two I don’t really care for are “Races” and “Philander.” Closing track is great. “High Hope,” though, is probably my favorite Hansard song, at least outside of Once.

    Really liked the last record too. I feel like this one will grow on me, but it’s not really what I expected.

    High Hope is phenomenal. The climax gives me goosebumps every time. It's got some major James Taylor vibes IMO.

    I don't remember the last record at all. Need to listen again for sure.

    Last record is really good. Doesn’t have the same high points, but it’s a solid listen.

    I think what this record is really missing is a “High Hope.” It needs some big, grand, emotive uplift in there.

    This Gift is his best song imo

    Slow down, Quentin Supporter

    I read somewhere that a lot of the songs on here were recorded by his touring band right after R&R was released. He went back and rewrote lyrics/rerecorded vocals, but the music itself stayed the same. That's probably why I like this album -- it definitely sounds like his live band, and I love that sound. Listening to it, I think there's some great stuff here that will fill out his live set, but there's not really anything here I'm dying to hear live, if that makes sense? There's no showstopper on this record like High Hopes or his live band version of If Your Mind's Made Up (when those horns come in, it's a damn gamechanger).
    This album is great background music, and it fits in wellwith his other albums. There are a few tunes I like, but I don't put it on and blast it like I did R&R.

    In my book the single best thing this guy ever did is still For the Birds with the Frames. That album is waaay under appreciated.
