Wildly romantic and just arch enough, Britpop’s great wit returns in vintage form. Neil Hannon might keep an eyebrow gently raised through “Catherine the Great”’s regal pop and the Noel Coward-like “Funny Peculiar”, but he’s equally seductive while playing his declarations of love with a straight bat (“The One Who Loves You”, “To the Rescue”). Naturally, lush, orchestral arrangements and melodies that sear themselves onto your brain are fitted as standard.
