Image of The Verve


Before they started The Verve, Richard Ashcroft, Simon Jones, Nick McCabe and Peter Salisbury used to gather in an old car, high above the hillsides around Wigan, gazing down over the town and wondering how they could avoid the anonymity that destiny seemed to be presenting them with. Their solution was to form a band, but even the wild-eyed dreamers couldn’t possibly have guessed just ... Read more in Amazon's The Verve Store

Love, life, happiness/Nothing more/Nothing less 8 July 2000
By Makman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
More like 4 1/2 stars. I received this CD packaged with it's sister half (Pt.2) two years ago, and I still find it (and the other) to be a good listen when I'm in the right mood.
In addition to the already brilliant "Bittersweet Symphony," the long edit doing a superb job of extending and elaborating on the emotions the original stirs up, "Country Song" is one of my personal favorites. It is anything but "country," and I am glad for it. It immerses you in that same empathic, dark, simultaeously solemn and exhilerating mood that BSymphony does, but in a slightly subtler fashion.
I don't own Urban Hymns, but I've been told by my friends who have heard this and the other import singles that they exceed their parent album in quality and consistency. I had my doubts as to whether the band amounted to more than the BSymphony, and they ended up shattering my skepticism on this maxi-single. If Urban Hymns disappointed you, this little gem surely won't.
I would also suggest for those interested in a really good, (I am assuming) somewhat obscure, non-album single by the Verve, to check out their track on the Doom Generation soundtrack.

Excellent Single with Great Bonus Tracks 23 Oct. 2004
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's hard to believe that it's been more than 7 years since the Verve hit a (commercial) nerve with the beautiful and haunting single "Bitter Sweet Symphony" of the "Urban Hymns" album, but as the years roll by, their biggest hit stands the test of time.

The US release of the "Bitter Sweet Symphony" single (4 tracks, 21 min.) includes 3 addititional non-album tracks that makes this a perfect combo. "Lord I'll Guess I'll Never Know" is a pensive song. "So Sister" is lead singer Richard Ashcroft's at his achingly best, just a beautiful ballad. But the closer "Echo Bass" is the best of the bonus tracks, an up-tempo song reminiscent of the Stone Roses' "Fool's Gold".

After the "Urban Hymns" album, Richard Ashcroft went solo, and he never reached the high of that album. This single presents the best of the Verve, and of Richard Ashcroft. Highly recommended!

The title tales no lies 14 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bitter Sweet Symphony is life set to music, of the love that we all wish we had, sometimes find, and end up loosing it. We turn a blind eye to love until we are faced with loosing it. Verve was able to capture the feelings of lost love with Bitter Sweet Symphony.

Love this!! 28 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I absolutely love this cd! I ordered it to use "Bittersweet Symphony 2" as the recessional music in my wedding. It's beautiful and not the usual wedding music you've heard a million times.
