“Awesome Hymns”

published 21/09/2000

Prooutstanding

Consshame they have split

It always takes me a little time to adjust to a new music taste or Band , The Verve were a classic example of this. I like to live in my comfort zone and don't like to admit to liking these rough looking groups. Can you remember the video to "Bitter Sweet Symphony" an arrogant Richard Ashcroft...

“Bitter Sweet Verve”

published 15/07/2000

ProSome real good songs, Verves best album.

ConsIts a shame they are no more.

How very dissapointing it is to see the Verve split up after their finest album to date. The band decided to go their seperate ways just as they had combined to produce one of the best albums of the year and finally had made headways into the musical scene. From the bombastic chart topping...

I recently saw this CD at one of the big retailers for £5.99, I think that this represents brilliant value bearing in mind that you can probably only get half a Steps CD for this price. I have no doubt you know about the talents of Richard Ashcroft and Co. and I am not going to spend the whole...

ProA Classic, don't be put off by the 'Britpop' label...

ConsThe last Verve album. A couple of album fillers

Urban Hymns is the last "The Verve" album (they have split before but this time is almost certainty *it*). Richard Ashcroft's vocal talents are fully shown off by this album. Although The Verve are likely to be remembered for "Bitter Sweet Symphony" (Rolling Stones sample)and "The Drugs Don't...

“I'm a Lucky Man”

published 04/05/2001

ProEverything

ConsNeon Wilderness, but I'm being picky

This CD is still one of the classic late 90s indie albums. They may have split up, Richard Ashcroft may have started to establish what I'm sure will become a hugely lucrative and successful solo career, but no-one can take anything away from Urban Hymns, the Verve's most popular and best album...

Proevery track playable

Consno enough tracks

urban hymns was without doubt one of the best albums of the nineties.every track was differant,from the awsome energy of "come on"to the downbeat and mellow "the drugs dont work"i have almost worn out this c.d. it sounds just as good today as it did when i first heard it.in my eyes it is a...

ProReally Lovely Music

ConsThey have split up. No Special Features

This is in my opinin the best album The Verve have, they are a great band, and its a shame they split up. This is them at there best. 1. Bittersweet Symphony This must be there most popular song of this album, this song is the reason why I purchased the album. Lovely texture, great string backing...

ConsNone

This C.D demonstrates what music is all about, never is there normally a c.d which incorporates so many awsome songs on it. There are four albams released by the verve but this is the only one which incorporates evrything that the verve stands for..........compassion (in the song lucky man) and...

“Brilliant”

published 08/06/2000

ProThe sound it makes

ConsNone at all

Urban hymns was the verves final album before they split up. It is the album which knocked Oasis' 'Be here now' off the top of the charts and they held the place for the next five weeks. The verve were one of the countries best bands and this album shows that. Everything about it says classic...

Consnone that i can think of...

I have been listening to music for a long time and not sure why i bought this cd, surely not because of the bittersweet symphony, that wasn;t my favorite song and the lyrics were od.d. i think i just went to the virgin records store and bought something that was reccomended and that sounded ok...

Proloads of great music

Consnone

This great album from The Verve must be one of the best albums ever created, although the verve have split they still sell many copies of their singles and their album in music stores today. This album has most of The Verves greatest ever achievements with songs like 'Luckyman', 'The Drugs Dont...
