I only have MP3s of his session on Today FM (Cannonball (with Lisa Hannigan singing), The Unplayed Piano and his cover of Creep). I might get O for Christmas.

At The Frames gig I was at last month, he made a little special apperance. The crowd went mental when he came on, but I was left wondering who was this oddly dressed and bearded man who played songs that the whole crowd sang along to. He was amazing. Afterwards I heard people saying "OMGSZERZ DAMIEN RICE", I realised then who he was

So, Damien Rice. Yay or Nay? I say Yay.

Oh man definitely, definitely, definitely get O. It's such a fantastic album, absolutely beautiful from start to finish. Amie is my favourite track right now. I've not listened to it in a while, but I put it on a few weeks back and it jsut blew me away like that was the first time I had ever heard it. The guy is absolutely beautiful (voice-wise). Seriously fantastic album

And I hear he's got a new one out early next year? Is this true? I hope so

You can get the album cheap now- I saw it for £5 somewhere. I've got it but don't listen to it a lot. Cannonball is a great song though.

So it's an almost 'yay' from me.

I agree with Alice. Can't help you on whether there is a new album out though.

O is my favourite album of this millenium, (which is only 6 years, but so what)

^You were probably distracted when you were listening. You need a quiet environment to listen to Damo, otherwise you can't properly appreciate it's beauty. It's just one of those things.

My friend performed Delicate and the Blowers Daughter. He was amazing, he equalled Damo I reckon, he's off to Berklee Music College after he finishes doing some other stuff he has to get out of the way.

lol, who says "passe" in relation to an artist? Music isn't a fashion y'know, he's hardly out-dated. Well it can be a fashion, but God help those who buy music based on the trends.

Yay from me. Simple, but effective.

"O" is awesome. I can't wait for his next album. I copped a mp3 of "Lonely Soldier" from eskimofriends.com (I think) That is my favorite from him right now.

It's been in the charts for about three years now I think... maybe not so long.

Can't say I've ever listened to him anyway... I'll get around to it sometime

Borrowed it from the library. Haven't listened much yet only the first 5 songs. They sounded boring so I put on something better to listen too. Maybe I'll give it time.

Damien Rice is brilliant.

I'm not really in to the singer/songwriter stuff normally, as I find it quite boring, but there is just something about 'O' that makes you sit there and think 'wow'.

You need to just sit and listen to it to understand it's greatness, just as with 'Grace' by Jeff Buckley, and even 'Dark Side Of The Moon' by Pink Floyd.

This is an old thread, but I really didn't see the need to make a new one about him just to say this...

According to play.com the new album ('9') will be released on November 6th.

Not that important, but the song titles for the new album don't look as good as the ones on 'O'

Probablty a little more important, I heard a really short clip of the new song and it sounded quite good, although rather melancholy.
