It makes sense to me that "Diva Lady" would be a single. It was one of the first songs that grabbed me.

Not sure I would have made it the first single, but still.

Don't be too hard on 'AF' - it went back to what we loved about TDC, especially after the way 'Regeneration' polarised us all, and it was informed by a different direction in NH's personal life (mar ...

Even though "Regeneration" was atypical for Neil, I still loved it. I'm not sure why he got so much flak for it. It just seems folks are content when he's taking his cues from Scott Walker ...

"Freedom Road" has been in my head a lot lately. It just fits my overall mood.

I also think it's Neil's take on The Magnetic Fields. It sounds like a song Stephin Merritt could have written.
