Divine Comedy

Includes d/l code plus full album of bonus material.
Remastered heavyweight vinyl housed in gatefold sleeve. 

The Divine Comedy are as superficial and pretentious as Queen (in the best sense of the term), as slick and smooth as Steely Dan and as joyous and celebratory as Björk. They are one of the unlikeliest bands around: the right band in the wrong era. They seem to belong to a more refined age of classical aesthetics, where everything sounds exactly right. They are the arranger's delight. Their songs are rather complex and filled with surprises, but pure pop nevertheless. They belong to a time when things were less complicated, when film stars were larger than life and we had reckless faith in progress. Bold and smooth. Neil Hannon's suave and effortless voice might just as well be mistaken for Frank Sinatra, forever stuck, doing Britpop. A recipe for disaster, perhaps, but The Divine Comedy serve it well, with intricate vocal harmonies, witty lyrics, bold sound production and a strong thrust forward. 

Released in 1993, Liberation achieved few sales but plenty of critical acclaim. Tracks such as "Your Daddy's Car", "Europop", and "Lucy are fan favourites still performed live by the band to this day while "Pop Singers Fear Of The Pollen Count" was released as a single from the 1999 Best Of.
