Valentina is the eighth studio album by English rock band The Wedding Present. It was released in the UK on 19 March 2012 by their record label, Scopitones. The North America release date was 20 March 2012, Japan 21 March 2012 and Oceania 23 March 2012. Valentina came four years after the band's previous album, El Rey. It was the first album since Saturnalia not to feature Terry de Castro on bass, although she did provide a few backing vocals

The album seemed more of a stagnation by the band rather than a further development of their sound. With that in mind I was a little unsure as to where David Gedge and crew would go, on this the band's eighth studio album. I'm pleased to say, though, that my uncertainty was swept to one side within the first 30 seconds of opening track, 'You're Dead'. The tracks rumbling drums and jangling guitars are the perfect compliment to Gedge's distinct vocals, the one staple of all Weddoes records over the past 27 years. Valentina' is a welcome return to form for The Wedding Present and enough to put the doubters' (myself included) minds to rest. Key song: Deer Caught in the Headlights. Reply Notify me Helpful.

Valentina ‎(LP, Album). This Will Be Our Summer. Mystery Date' is the kind of track that builds and in doing so you find yourself reaching for the volume control.

Artist: The Wedding Present. Style: indie pop. Format: MP3 320Kbps, FLAC. Bonus Track: 11 – Pain Perdu.

Seamonsters was a hard slap of an album, indie pop curdled into abrasion and dissonance, with lyrics whose barbed wit seemed like singer/guitarist David Gedge's dam to hold back much more hurtful words. That version of the Wedding Present, though- Gedge, guitarist Peter Solowka, bassist Keith Gregory, and drummer Simon Smith- is a distant memory. Valentina is essentially Gedge and his current sidemen doing a very solid impression of the Wedding Present as they were circa 1990. His lyrics are still focused on infidelity and emotional unfairness, although his characters are a lot more willing to accept culpability than they were back when he was writing songs with titles like "Why Are You Being So Reasonable Now?"

6. The Girl from the DDR Lyrics.

Valentina is the Wedding Present's ninth full-length album, the third since David Gedge shut down Cinerama and went back to using the WP name. It's also the first time in 12 years Gedge has been without the services of bassist Terry DeCastro; though she did stick around long enough to provide a few backing vocals. Otherwise, longtime fans will be glad to hear that nothing else has changed. Nothing at all! Almost every note, lyric, and sound could have appeared on any Weddoes record of the past 20 years or so without any problem.
