Divine Comedy : Bad Ambassador
Another lyrically obtuse, foppish and string-soaked epic of unrequited love...
It's somehow refreshing to know that some bands will survive unchanged by the vagaries of fashion and musical development. Like recently toured Glaswegian faves Teenage Fanclub, the Comedy are always gonna have that secure fanbase that will love them unconditionally. 'Bad Ambassador', for the record, is another lyrically obtuse, foppish and string-soaked epic of unrequited love. Strictly business as usual then.
