This 1995 album brought 3 huge singles - This Is Music, On Your Own and History, But you lot want more? Well it is now remastered and presented with all of the B-sides for each individual release as well as early versions of songs, unreleased studio tracks, live sessions and interviews. Good enough?
10/10 Gregor Omelasz Customer review, 27th January 2017
Sheer bliss, and it's The Verve at their peak (sadly). Listening to this growing up got me through my first heartbreak, got me through angst, got me through damn near everything. I'll always thank Ashcroft for that, because his lyrics are phenomenal here, and the band is in fine form. McCabe is rash, Jones is on a groove, Salisbury sounds like he's channeling his inner Bonham on 'Life's An Ocean'. I'm really glad this got a repress too, more people deserve to hear this on wax but shouldn't need to pay the extortionate fee of the original (nice pressing, mind you).
All in all, the best Verve album, A Storm In Heaven runs it close, but this smoothed out the rough edges evident on that release.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 26th September 2016
This band is easy to LOVE for the masses because it has the 'unknown, non-commercialised' appeal and because they are truly a great band. This album is cool to listen to because I can feel there movement towards Urban Hymns. While Northern Soul is a fine and consistent album, I don't think it reaches the level of the best portions of Storm or Hymns. Additionally some of the songs run on a verse or two too long. Nevertheless, Northern Soul, holds its own as part of the extraordinary Verve trilogy of albums.
