a short site about The Divine Comedy

Perfect Lovesong

After vowing to banish the dandy, foppish persona of the Divine Comedy for good, the band oddly decide to release the one track from 'Regeneration' that typifies everything you thought they'd buried. Confusing or what?

Still, considering their profile seems to have dipped slightly over recent months, the return to the triumphs of 'Short Album About Love' is probably not a bad idea.

It may take some time to get used to the sincerity of 'Perfect Lovesong' but when you do the unashamedly honest carefree attitude (paying homage to The Beach Boys sense of melody along the way) is futile to resist.

7/10
