AllMusic Review by

One of the band's few forays outside of their long-term home Cherry Red, Dante's Casino was their first release since re-forming at the end of 1989 (with the addition of new guitarist Orson Presence). One listen to "Bella Morte" will confirm your prejudices about the Monochrome Set: you'll either love the clever wordplay and effortless hooks which have always embossed their genre-defying sound, or you'll consider them a poor man's XTC.
