EDITORS’ NOTES

Wildly romantic and just arch enough, Britpop’s great wit returns in vintage form. Neil Hannon might keep an eyebrow gently raised through “Catherine the Great”’s regal pop and the Noel Coward-like “Funny Peculiar”, but he’s equally seductive while playing his declarations of love with a straight bat (“The One Who Loves You”, “To the Rescue”). Naturally, lush, orchestral arrangements and melodies that sear themselves onto your brain are fitted as standard.

Catchy, Witty, great production!

I've always enjoyed Divine Comedy and Neil Hannon's music ever since "Cassanova". The Orchestrations, the melody, the satirical yet still historically accurate and not to mention, witty lyrics are still present here. After a few listens, I can't get these songs out of my head! If that's not an indication of a great album, I don't know what is!

2% instead of full fat

I love the Divine Comedy and I've been a fan since the very beginning. I have all of their albums and listen to them regularly. I love the rich full sound and the beautiful smooth vocal. This album though does not feel the same, it feels someone thinner and less luxurious. Saying that though there are some nuggets of pure joy like the track, Funny. Let's hope it grows on me.
