a short site about The Divine Comedy

Best albums of 2010

No modern pop writer has a broader feel for character than Neil Hannon (otherwise known as The Divine Comedy). On the latest disk of his long career, Hannon gets inside the head of everyone from an Italian girl navigating her way through post-World War II Naples to a corrupt financier in modern London. With his cutting lyrics and sweeping ’60s lounge-pop tunes, Hannon has just the talent modern theater companies should clamor for.
