The Cost by The Frames
Released: Feb 2007
Label: Anti/Epitaph
Despite six studio LPs under their belts, the Frames remain one of the most underrated bands to come out of Dublin. But if any album were going to attract the hearts of the masses, it would be this one. The booming crescendos and spine-chilling orchestration that steer Glen Hansard's cathartic wails could bring even melancholy masters like Coldplay to their knees. The Cost highlights the Frames' grandiose charm in a crisp package that plays like a therapy session -- opening with earnest confessionals and liberating anthems and closing with comforting, slow-burning ballads.
