Judging from the videos, 'I Like' might be the worst Divine Comedy song ever. On a positive note, 'At the Indie Disco' sounds absolutely beautiful as a solo piano piece.

Regeneration has one of their greatest cover art but the album itself is...well, not their best.

I've always thought the opposite. The album is great but the cover is awful.

I can't quite believe that was Ridley Scott.

It wasn't. He was one of the producers, but Andrew Dominik wrote the script and directed it.
