Les chansons d’amour – La discothèque de l'amateur
Il y a bien longtemps – près de cinq ans ! – que je n’avais écrit dans ces pages à propos du facétieux et génial Irlandais, l’immense Neil Hannon et son incomparable Divine Comedy.

The Divine Comedy - Absent Friends (vinyl reissue) | Pop | Written in Music
Voor het achtste album van The Divine Comedy pakte songschrijver Neil Hannon, na het alternatieve uitstapje met Reintegration, weer terug op de rijke pop die veel van hun vorige albums zo kenmerkte. Met grote held Scott Walker in gedachten schreef Hannon voor Absent Friends zijn allerbeste songs en overblufte deze met eindeloze arrangementen. Een absoluut […]
