Set List contains optimum performances of songs culled from The Frames' four album repertoire, honed and refined over 14 years of intense, elating and near-legendary live shows. The sense of profound connection forged between the band and its audience has often been compared to the evangelical feeling at shows by Springsteen and U2 -- albeit with more skewed sensibilities -- and it's there for the hearing on Set List: in the indoor fireworks of 'Revelate' and 'God Bless Mum'; in the audience's full-throated contribution to the warped earthenware folk of 'Lay Me Down'; in the rambling, poignant and funny monologue that prefaces the aching 'When The Heart Just Stops'; in a version of the epic 'Fitzcarraldo' so incendiary one of the guitar amps went up in flames.

For you cynics who dismiss all live albums as souless, worthless contractual obligations or cash grabs, a) you're almost always right, and b) here's one where you're wrong. Ireland's the Frames make quiet, melancholy art-folk records, but this 16 track live excursion thunders like U2 caliber arena rock spiked with furious guitar thunderstorms, soothed by fabulous ballads ("What Happens When The Heart Just Stops") and absorbed by a clearly elated crowd that screams along to every word. Grab a Guiness and go, mates.
