Fin de Siècle Tracklist. 1. Generation Sex Lyrics.
The songs on Fin de Siècle, though pleasant, don't quite scale the heights Neil Hannon has before: nothing is as arresting as A Short Album About Love's "In Pursuit of Happiness," though "Commuter Love," the grandiose, wind-swept "The Certainty of Chance," and especially the rainy-day funeral song "Life on Earth" make attempts, as does the song that jumps out.
This album has an average beat per minute of 132 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 88/186 BPM). See the BPM profile of this album. Tracklist - Fin de siècle.
Album Information : Title: Fin de Siècle. Make no mistake: this album, like the "band" that recorded it, is definitely an acquired taste. So, by means of explanation for those, like myself, who had previously never heard of the band, here's a bit of what I thought I heard when I played this the first time: Burt Bacharach, Francoise Hardy, The Pet Shop Boys, Roxy Music, Dusty Springfield, "I Am The Walrus"-styled Beatles, Tom Jones, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel.

Unfortunately, the subsequent album Fin De Siecle rarely played for laughs, supplanting them instead with a loose concept of pre-millennial angst. This confused a lot of the casual Britpop fans and hastened the band's decent down the ever fickle popularity ladder. That's a real shame because Fin De Siecle is an excellent record. Keeping the huge orchestral flourishes featured on their previous release, A Short Album About Love, most of the songs feel properly epic and bombastic. Ultimately, Fin De Siecle is a superb addition to The Divine Comedy's discography. it captures the band at their peak of popularity and classical bombast. The record is filled with memorable lyrics, sweeping compositions, catchy choruses and has a cohesive artistic concept behind it. If intelligent chamber pop is your cup of tea, you really can't afford to miss out on this fantastic record.
