The Divine Comedy
"Assured, eccentric, stylish and sumptuously produced.’
"Collect everything simultaneously arch, pretty, smart, camp, infuriating and, sod it, just plain lush about pop music, stick it all in the back of a Bentley and drive it to the sea.
And if you can't do that, then buy this record.. 9/10 "
"An album that can walk down a leafy path to the cemetery of the soul. As I listen to Liberation, a thousand butterflies gatecrash my party. At least it seems that way."
"Liberation offers a breadth and depth which summon up the spirits of Brecht and Weill, Brel, Scott Walker and lyrically, Brendan Behan. 8/10 "
"At a time when rock is rebelling against intelligence, The Divine Comedy are a tonic. But quite apart from all that, Liberation is a beautiful thing.
Rebel! Wear slippers! Smoke a pipe! Read! Buy this record! **** "
