In 1555, a fine edition of his Commedia was published in Venice with the adjective divine applied to the poem's title for the first time, resulting in the title still in use today, The Divine Comedy.

Regeneration is quite a different album from the rest of the Divine Comedy back-catalouge, and it owes it mostly to its very different sound, created largely by Radiohead's producer.
