Among the best album in the world... no joke my friends., 29 Sept. 2004
Usually I find that DC albums take a while to grow on me, but off the back of getting into the rather difficult 'Regeneration' album this was a massive relief. You can genuinely relax into enjoying this album from the off. Although there are a couple of slightly less interresting tracks(Freedom Road and Laika's theme) the rest are so good it'll make you smug that you bought it. The stand out track is 'The Happy Goth', i couldn't help but beam with joy whilst walking down the highstreet hearing it for the first time and I reckon there's something eerie about 'The Wreck of the Beautiful' that really gets to you. Hannon and the DIvine Comedy are, as has been said countless times before, by far the most talented musical force in their genre (if DC can be put in one) and should be lapped up while it lasts. Forget the rest DC's the best. People you know what to do...the gamble is well worth it.
