A Short Album About Love

The French call Neil Hannon ‘The pope of pop’. It’s a pretty good assessment. Here then, are 7 songs, all about love, performed with strings, woodwinds, brass, the whole bit. Where most people would stumble before the pitfalls in such a genre, Mr. Hannon pulls it off with remarkable aplomb. I play this to cheer myself up.
