Comicopera is divided into three Acts: 'Lost in Noise,' 'The Here and The Now,' and 'Away with the Fairies' and is initially more diverse and live sounding than its predecessor Cuckooland.
 
Featuring a host of musicians including Brian EnoPaul Weller and Phil Manzanera, Robert says he was keen for the album to capture the sound of a group of musicians playing in the room together, but more importantly to have friends playing together. "Music isn't just an abstract pleasure, it is a company, when you play a record. Why I like Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus, the Big Bands - is because every character in the band is identifiable as that person - there's this group of humans in a room" he says. It is this that gives Comicopera a sense of spontaneity, despite it's deliberate pacing and construction as something of a three Act 'Opera'.
