Product Notes

Even those allergic to musicals may be won over by Once, a tender-hearted Irish romance with songs by Czech Republic–born Markéta Irglová and Frames frontman Glen Hansard. (The film's director, John Carney, actually used to play bass in the group.) The trick here is that Irglová and Hansard also play the leads; because their characters are shown busking, writing music, or rehearsing, the songs are smoothly integrated in the film. The overall acoustic mood won't surprise fans of the Frames--some tracks ("Say It to Me," "When Your Mind's Made Up") have even popped up on the band's albums, though the arrangements are more pared-down here, befitting the scruffy, street-musician setting. Being the lesser-known entity, Irglová feels like a revelation; she sounds a bit like a folkie Björk on "If You Want Me," and her song "The Hill" is downright heartbreaking. Irglová and Hansard had already made the 2006 album The Swell Seasontogether, so their collaboration here feels really organic--they sound particularly good together on the title track, for instance. Now that's the kind of magic you want from musicals. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Editorial Reviews


Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová – Once Original Soundtrack

Once, the Irish independent film, is not only making headlines for its bravo screen performance but also it’s soundtrack.

Considering this film was based on a relationship between a man and a woman forged entirely upon music, it seems only fitting that a soundtrack be released making it possible to experience the emotion of the film through simply listening to the CD.

Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová perform acoustic guitar and piano driven songs to the tune of thirteen tracks on this release and unlike your average soundtrack or modern recording, this album maintains the underground indie sound spawning from the movie.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Hansard and Irglová who have collaborated in the past with their release The Swell Season which hit the streets late 2006; as well as us having a previous relationship with Hansard as the front man for The Frames.

This harmonious collection of songs has an air of truth and brilliance about it which unfortunately are far and few between qualities for a record release today. Hansard and Irglová will leave you speechless with there ability to bring such deep rooted emotion to the surface long enough to be recorded. I remember a time when many records had this type of “true” emotion…Once upon a time…

Favorite Songs: “Leave”, “If You Want Me”, “Say It to Me Now

By Sophie
Once I popped in this CD, it took me through the emotive ride that was felt throughout the film itself, which I highly recommend as ell. Whether it serves as your getaway from the daily pulse of those workday woes or as a travelling partner sipping your expresso in the morning, this cd is well worth becoming the trusty companion for everyone in some form or fashion. Highly recommended!
