14/06/2019, The Divine Comedy: "Office politics" (2019) - UN DISCO AL DIA

Neil Hannon tira de largo. Quizá un poco enrabietado con las voces que creyeron ver en su anterior obra, Foreverland (2016), un exceso de conservadurismo formal y racanería artística, vuelve a dar señales de vida en un plazo mucho más llevadero (entre Foreverland y Bang goes the knighthood habían transcurrido seis años), entrega una muy ambiciosa colección de 16 piezas y, en el caso de la edición especial, incluye de propina las maquetas íntegras que grabó al piano el año pasado para el musical Swallows and amazons.

14/06/2019, THE DIVINE COMEDY - Office Politics (2019) - Stars Are Underground

Il y a 9 ans déjà Neil Hannon enfilait sa tenue de banquier afin de dénoncer avec humour les débordements de la crise financière. En 2017, c’est en costume napoléonien qu’il fit son grand retour avec un « Foreverland » qui renouait avec un certain classicisme et l’identité orchestrale de The Divine Comedy. Un album réussi, mais sans risques.

Een nieuwe release van The Divine Comedy is altijd iets om naar uit te kijken. Hun mix van geraffineerde kamerpop en subtiel komische teksten werkte op hun recente albums Bang Goes The Knighthood en Foreverland nog zeker zo goed als toen ze debuteerden in de jaren 1990.

11/06/2019, Album reviews: Avicii | The Divine Comedy | Richard Hawley | Song, By Toad compilation - The Scotsman

Pop music thrives on dynamic tension – a killer melodic interval, an unexpected chord progression, or the juxtaposition of dark lyrics with a happy tune. Swedish superstar DJ Avicii – real name Tim Bergling – specialised in this latter musical contradiction, and his searching lyrics only resonate with greater sadness in the context of his suicide last year.

Es war schon eine kleine Sensation als Neil Hannon nach Abschluss der Tour zum letzten Longplayer „Foreverland“ im Jahr 2017 ankündigte, umgehend am Nachfolger arbeiten zu wollen. Hannon ließ sich mindestens seit „Victory For The Comic Muse“ 4-6 Jahre zwischen neuen Platten Zeit um seine opulenten, viktorianischen Prachtstücke sorgfältig zu entwickeln. Zum Ausgleich und Ausleben von differenzierten Songideen hatte er sich ja eigentlich zusammen mit Pugwash das Cricket-verliebte Duckworth Lewis Method Projekt geleistet, das immerhin auf zwei Veröffentlichungen kam.
