“. . .The Divine Comedy was a proud effort by Jovovich, who resolutely guarded and shaped her emergence as a singer. She personally hyped her pre-release album as “a mix between Kate Bush, Sinead O’Connor, This Mortal Coil, and The Cocteau Twins.” To help move the album along, the label released a free sampler disc (I still have mine) which featured the wonderful single ‘Gentleman Who Fell.’
Largely acoustic and immensely charming, ‘Gentleman Who Fell’ was a minor alternative rock hit. The problem was that it wasn’t enough to carry the album as far as the album should have gone. After the simple success of ‘Gentleman Who Fell’, the album, and its subsequent single attempts (‘Bang Your Head,’ ‘It’s Your Life’) barely registered despite very positive reviews.” [. . .]    –Matt Rowe, The Morton Report, July 13, 2011

As the Poets Affirm

What started as a three-piece acoustic project, eventually turned into an eclectic seven-member lineup experimenting with jazz, classical and electronica. Their name is taken from a line in Dante’s Inferno [Inf. XXIX.63].” [. . .]    —The Sirens Sound
