CASANOVA [The Divine Comedy] [5024545021127]

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (4/17/97, p.77) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...a cheeky, grandiose masterpiece. On a foundation of guitar and piano, CASANOVA builds to a florid musicality....armed with...trumpets, violins and a Scott Walker-derived croon, leaving behind a loveless, voluptuous trail of broken hearts..."
    Entertainment Weekly (10/24/97, p.67) - "...features diminutive Irishman Neil Hannon playing a foppy modern-day version of the title's namesake. The album's brilliance lies in the pain--and pathos--beneath his pop-baroque cheek and Buddy Love-like swagger." - Rating: A
    Q (p.44) - "[A] raffish, lushly orchestrated stroll along the highways, byways and, indeed, cul-de-sacs of love at the tail end of Britpop."
    Option (11-12/96, p.101) - "...glistens with retro orchestration, celebrating linguistic gymnastics...amusing interpersonal dynamics, and, above all, style....Hannon's happy keyboard work punctuates the grand schemes disguised as musical scores..."
    Melody Maker (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #40 on Melody Maker's list of 1996's `Albums Of The Year.'
    NME (Magazine) (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #19 in NME's 1996 critic's poll.
