    by a long shot the best portion of other voices was emmet prayerboat tinley's performance shown on net 2 last night. dare i say it but glen hansard ruined 'it hurts to lose you' which is perhaps the best song to come out of an irish throat ever! in fairness to hansard though i think he knew it.

    yeh i caught that show thanks to a tip on this site (thanks whoever that was, your name escapes me) and i thought it was amazing, esp. the very first song...easily the best edition of other voices i've seen (a lot of it has been muck)...i'm ashamed to say i've no tinley/prayer boat cd's but this may well have to change soon... space cheeks, i taped it too but it's on the end of 'phoenix nights' series 2 so i'd need it back in one piece!!

    the prayerboat are always a stunning live experience. Emmet's voice is outstanding.

    I really thought Polichenille would do something for them, shame. I always remember them being savaged by the musical press here back in their early days. I think it was Hot Press in a review of one of their singles said the haven't got a boat and they haven't got a f**kin prayer.

    Hotpress are assholes always have been always will be.... The Prayerboat were an amazing and as for polichenille a true gem I think songs from a room really highlighted this and hopefully emmet will come back and do another gig now that would meke my day!

    Sorry you've got it all wrong. Damo Dempsey was the best in my opinion. The mans a lyrical genious and puts any irish singer songwriter to shame. I dont think anyone sings about heroin, irish government greed and every day working class industrial life. Hats of to him theres no b****x with him, what you see is what you get.

    I have to agree with duncan. Damien Dempseys appearence was excellant. A powerful display. Some great lyrics, simple maybe, but true all the same... I also though mark gearys performance was very good.. Josh Ritter comes in a close thrid for me... Bit dissapointed with the frames.

    havent forgotten ye space cheeks! just trying to organise a second vcr so i can make copies - it'll be after the weekend though... can i just say - on the topic of "other voices" - the majority of it good, some of its really good and some of it is a bit phnarrrrr. also, i have heard damien rice "blowers daughter" and gerry fish "true friends" enough already to last me a lifetime. why did'nt they put something less predictable on the compilation???? i am sure others like me hit the "skip" button when confronted with this? also, would like to pay tribute to Martin Finke ~ his song has continued to grow and grow on me. Paddy Casey too (albeit begrudgingly)...

    Good idea - you would imagine that RTE would look at that but I'd say if they were they'd have been plugging it on the show itself I would have said. Rumours of another one I think though - they might get around to it for that...

    Hate to spoil the party as usual but personally I find all that faux-pagan new-age schmaltz a bit iffy. Certainly wouldn't doubt the quality of the musicianship, some fine singers, certainly, but it strikes me that most of the "other voices" sail on a ship of empty-metaphor that's long since run-aground. With so many artists virtually indistinguishable from each other, rattling off insincere poetry about sunsets and eskimoes, I'd stand only with Barry McCormack and Katell Keinig. Ho hum.

    Ok, I don't know who those two people you mentioned are, but THANK YOU vandela. Finally someone who sees through that s**t! It seems like it's suddenly ok to sing empty songs as if they are gospel, as long as they're VAGUE enough. I HATE ALL that crap. crap crap crap. Quiet is the new loud? THEN LET'S TURN IT UP. SCREAM FROM THE ROOFTOPS

    ...not that quiet music is automatically bad by any means. But that music is METAPHORICALLY quiet, almost meta-metaphorically quiet...
