The Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy

by Milla



Milla is supermodel and actress Milla Jovovich, and 1994's The Divine Comedy was her debut release. While it's now common for models and actors to try their hand at music, the good results of The Divine Comedy are not as common. Produced by Rupert Hine, the album is a low-key, laid-back affair featuring guest appearances by Eric Bazilian and Martha Davis. Milla has a pleasant voice and above-average songwriting ability, and the songs are organic, light, airy concoctions that work well in their understated settings. The jaunty, folk-inflected "Gentlemen Who Fell" was an alternative rock hit. Other noteworthy cuts include the otherworldly "The Alien Song (For Those Who Listen)" and the medieval "Charlie."

This is a great album that's different from mainstream music and a whole lot different from the typical disco/techno music most actresses and supermodels put out to make more money. Milla is a supermodel and B-movie actress, but actually has terrific musical talent. Wow! Wow! Wow! The music is a mix of folk and medieval with a little bit of pop thrown in for good measure. One wouldn't think that a supermodel/actress would be able to write such introspective and meaningful lyrics, but she did it and did it well! Her music is tasteful, top-notch and atmospheric and helps conjure up images of long, long ago. "The Alien Song (For Those That Listen)", "Gentlemen Who Fell", "Reaching From Nowhere", "Bang Your Head", "Clock" and "Charlie" are among the very best songs on this super album. I sincerely hope you enjoy it and that it creates a rewarding and pleasurable listening expperience for you. RECOMMENDED!

just a very good album...very focused, very soulful.. great for relaxing..don't listen to it because of her other professions, but listen to it because she has singing talent...I think she might have another album soon? rumor? I feel so stupid for missing her play live when she opened for toad in 96...

This cd is the best anyone can ever listen to. Milla has done a splended job and I though have enjoyed listening to this cd for more then five years.

This album is incredible. Milla's lyrics are brilliant and touching. The music is a grand fushion of folk and medieval minstrel music. It amazes me how such a great album could have not gotten the attention it deserved. At least Milla Jojovich got the recognition she deserved, just in another light - as a stellar actress. Favorite tracks - "It's Your Life", "Gentleman Who Fell", "Don't Fade Away", and "Charlie".
