Review: Didn’t He Ramble by Glen Hansard

Didn't He Ramble by Glen HansardIt’s hard not to like Glen Hansard. I mean, try. His songs always have this particular quality – of earnestness, of truthfulness, of all those things millennials tend to scream about as their defining values. In his many musical iterations Glen has always come across as authentic, and one with his heart on his sleeve. On his latest solo record, Didn’t He Ramble, Glen continues the trend by pretty much aiming all his songs to the people he loves. The sincerity of tracks like “Winning Streak” could win over even the hardest of hearts – I’m an admitted cynic and yet that song got me. Sure, the record can get both same-y and overwrought – Glen gets a bit muddled in the middle of the album – but the heart at, well, the heart of the record is hard to deny. [NB]4/5
