Alan_Draper The_Divine_Comedy_On_Track Book Neil_Hannon
In this edition of On Track, Alan Draper examines the thirteen original studio albums Neil Hannon released under The Divine Comedy banner between 1990 and 2022.
This overview includes analysis of additional recordings, including single releases and also takes in the pair of albums recorded by offshoot project: The Duckworth Lewis Method, on which Hannon combined forces with fellow Irishman Thomas Walsh. 
From Indie to Chamber Pop to full-on orchestral follies, The Divine Comedy remain one of Britain's finest bands of the last four decades.
