A friend showed me some DVD footage many many years ago, maybe around 2001 or 2002. To be honest, it didn't really click with me at first. I was at a used CD store and saw ONCE for inexpensive, so I figured I would finally give them a fair shot and listen to a full album. I love ONCE from start to finish. One of those albums I can easily listen to straight through. I am probably the minority of people who like ONCE the best out of the whole discography.
