    A slightly secondary or even tertiary mention in a review:

    2 stars.

    "Divine Comedian's cricket themed album. Not as good as that sounds"

    'Birthed one drunken evening by The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh (mainstay of Irish powerpop outfit Pugwash) and named after a complex formula for scoring rain-affected one-day matches, The Duckworth Lewis Method presents the unlikely proposition of an entire album about cricket. While nothing here matches Roy Harper's elegiac When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease, the pair occasionally capture the genteel ambience that accompanies the thwack of leather on willow; evidenced on Jiggery Pokery's wry, Flanders & Swann-style cleverness and the XTC-esque Mason On The Boundry, which charmingly evokes a departed world of dusty cricket whites and long shadows on the village green. Unfortunately, much of the rest veers from lightweight (Sweet Spot) to teeth grindingly irritating (The Coin Toss), suggesting a private joke that perhaps would have been best left in private.'

    What the f**k do critics know. (I think the record is good,plus they played at Lord's. So Cricket with a capital C endorses it/them)
