Promenade takes a very specific listener to appreciate.

Promenade is The Divine Comedy's third album. It was released in 1994 on Setanta to much critical acclaim but little commercial success. It is a concept album about two lovers who spend a day at the seaside. The album's style is even more than its predecessor, Liberation. The string arrangements are reminiscent of the works of Michael Nyman, with whom The Divine Comedy would later collaborate.

Promenade ‎ (LP, Album). The Divine Comedy - The Summerhouse 4:16.

The Divine Comedy's second LP Promenade is a masterclass of bookish chamber pop. Using the classical composer Michael Nyman as his primary musical influence, Neil Hannon crafted a beautiful set of songs full of lush strings, twinkling piano and graceful harpsicord. The Nabakovian 'The Summerhouse' is the album's best song. Actually, not only is it the best song on this LP, but probably the best Divine Comedy song full stop.

A literary promenade at the seaside, accompanied by Neil Hannon's exquisite skill of weaving pop tunes with minimalistic technique.
