6/10 Gregor Omelasz Customer review, 26th January 2017
The Verve were more like Richard Ashcroft + Backing Band at this point in their career, and it's a damn shame because the main reason 'A Storm In Heaven' and 'A Northern Soul' worked so well was because of the band dynamic behind them. Nick McCabe is reduced to a shell on this release, so much so that he left the band mid-tour in support of this release. However, there are still some talking points on this record, Velvet Morning might be one of their best hidden gems, the lyrics fit anyone's mid-life crisis due to the realisation that you're not where you want to be, nor will you ever be. But this album is a crisis in itself, the end of the road so to speak, so much so that Forth was more of a Verve record than this. It's just a pity they couldn't have evolved from that reunion, because I think the results could've been great.
Anyway, this is their most popular record but possibly their worst one, at least to my ears. It's just not what The Verve were about.
10/10 Jack Customer review, 1st August 2015
The Verve's "Urban Hymns" came out of nowhere in the middle of the '90s as it essentially sounds like nothing else that came out in that decade. With the opening grandiose epic "Bittersweet Symphony", Richard Ashcroft's genius is instantly visible. The song flows and intertwines so well, it is one of the more memorable tracks ever recorded. While Ashcroft would explore similar personal efforts on his proper solo album "Alone With Everyone", he would never scale the heights of fury that McCabe brought to the table. Great stuff.
