I don’t say that lightly.

I’m fascinated at how fresh this album sounds within the tides of the endless curse of boredom currently circulating new releases, yet how traditional and familiar it feels.

Fascinated at the array of instruments, samples and styles of song portrayed throughout. The level of diversity is wonderful. From sounds of ships, harpsichords, barbershop choral vocals…. Stick on some quality headphones and succumb to it.

Fascinated by the lyrical content and how well the descriptive stories are told.

Fascinated at the little amount of time I’ve spent listening to The Divine Comedy before.

Become fascinated. A drink helps too.
