Product Description

Amazon.com

You'd expect this to be a travesty. Milla Jovovich is a model and actress (The Fifth Element, He Got Game) who decided to put out an album of dark, lyrical art-rock in the manner of Dead Can Dance or This Mortal Coil. That's a demanding genre, littered with the bones and witchy jewelry of dozens of histrionic types who got the image thing right, but who never ironed out the "singing" and "songwriting" aspects of it all. Model? Actress? (Gong!) ... Next! Except The Divine Comedy is a stunningly good album, with folky-pastoral instrumentation, haunting, accomplished vocals, and tight songwriting. There are, it's true, session pros all over this CD--which tempers the awe a bit--but nonetheless, it's a real gem from an unlikely source. --Gavin McNett

Milla Jovovich is a Jack (or is that Jill?) of All Trades - gorgeous model, convincing actress, and a magnificent singer - who irrefutably proves her talent in the latter profession by the release of this gem of an album. After seeing her explosive performance in `The Fifth Element,' I became curious about her and found out she also sang. However, I did not purchase this album until months later (I had not yet become a loyal customer of Amazon), when I found both `The Divine Comedy' and `The Peopletree Sessions' at a CD shop in Berkeley, California.
Unlike most people whose reviews grace this site, I did not come in with any expectations. Honestly, there were no thoughts such as, "Oh, she's a model; no way can she sing well!" Instead, I just became an impartial listener while riding in a car. After going through the entire album, I was mesmerised by the quality of the album. Stand out tracks are "Gentlemen Who Fell," "It's Your Life," and "Clock."
First and foremost, Milla's voice struck me. Names like Tori Amos and Kate Bush have come up in many reviews, and although there are similarities, I would not go so far as to declare Milla their matches. Adjectives: soaring (in a non-operatic, soul-infused manner), haunting, distinct, ethereal. Her voice invokes Enya, Sarah Brightman, and even Loreena McKennitt. The conglomeration of her commanding yet fragile voice, strong melodies, and the obvious passion with which she sings makes the album well worth any price. Every song rouses a different emotion and mood. Just one run-through will take you through the feelings of utterly creativity, depression, solitude, to reasonless joy, bliss, and giddiness.

I bought this album upon its release, out of utter curiosity. It is now some 5 years later and I still can not get enough of this album. It is absolutely magical, yet extremely deep and the lyrics are brutally honest. Milla has proven what a true artist she is. I have made so many people listen to this cd, the usual response is "Oh my god! That's milla!" Utter disbelief if you will. I am just hoping the true follow up will live up to this magnificant musical masterpiece (an indie electroncia diddie is not worth mentioning)...you will be captivated by her beautiful voice, haunting melodies and enchanting music.

Wow, who could've guessed that Milla Jovovich was such an artistic, multi-talented individual! Not only can she model and act, she's a singer, wonderful mandolin player and composed all the lyrics of this delightful -11 track- masterpiece.

I'm not exactly sure how to categorize her sound. I think about as close as I could get would be to compare her to a medieval troubador performing at some grand yearly village gathering like the 'Feast of Fools' Festival. Maybe that's just the image I perceive because of the mandolin?

Every song is different and memorable, my favorite being -track 7- 'Bang Your Head.' An amazing and eclectic collection and a very bold musical statement by Milla to step out with something so unique and be so successful with it.

My Highest Recommendation!

The cover of Milla's _The Divine Comedy_ tells it all. Here we are reaching to the heavens but held down by all the demons and hurts and heartaches of life. Milla's songs are direct, personal, and heart breaking. Whether it's a song about our inability to connect with a lost love or a dead friend's suicide or the wall that we make to protect ourselves from hurt, Milla gets down to the raw essence of life and challenges her listeners to live their lives, to make decision, to reach for that higher life we yearn for. I didn't know anything about Milla when my closest friend told me about this CD. I listened and discovered a wonderful, philosophical rock artist. I've seen Milla in movies and in advertisements since that time. She never reveals so much of herself as she does in this CD. Let her beautiful songs and lyrics touch your life :)

Milla Jonovich created her first splash is the American press for "The Divine Comedy" an album she recorded when she was sixteen. Milla had already six movie appearances on her resume. and a lucrative career as an ubermodel. It would be a mistake, however, to assume that Milla was a vacuous "looker" attempting to cash in with a couple of dance hits.

She suprised her label by fighting for and winning creative control over the "Divine Comedy". The album remains as a elegant and mature musical debut, as you'll ever hear from a sixteen year old. She even made her performance debut on the venerable Mountain Stage radio show backed by Kristin Hersh founder and guitarist of the ground breaking indie band, Throwing Muses. One wonders what Milla could have done had she gone full throttle into a musical career, instead of films.

Released in April 1994, Milla's The Divine Comedy remains one of the best kept musical secrets of the 90's. Acoustic, folky, and hard to categorize, Milla cites Kate Bush as an influence, but some of it sounds to me like music Bjork may have done had she been born in the Ukranine, instead of Iceland. Her plaintive vocals will appeal to those who like the post-Velvet "Chelsea Girl" music of Nico.

Her rich voice is coupled with seldom used instruments like the mandolin, dulcimer, and flute to create an oddly unique and airy sound. The final track, In a Glade, is a beautiful traditional Ukrainian folk song that Milla sings in her native tongue.

Her rendition of Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love" along with her stellar perfomance in Wim Wenders' movie "Million Dollar Hotel" in 2000, shows that Milla is capable of balancing both worlds in the same artistic project. She is still 28 years old and she may well suprise everyone with a second career as a successful singer and songwriter.
