5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Brilliance 2 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is most certainly worth purchasing - especially if you're curious to learn more about a band that could have gone on to achieve so much more.
If you liked Urban Hymns, this 'best of' collection will introduce you to some of The Verve's more undiscovered (and unappreciated) earlier work of the 90's. This Is Music, On Your Own and History are all excellent singles from their 1995 album A Northern Soul, while Slide Away and Blue offer a more raw taste of music from their debut album A Storm In Heaven.
All In The Mind, Gravity Grave and She's A Superstar are all early efforts between 92-93 and are vastly different - but not necessarily worse - than the more popular offerings such as Bitter Sweet Symphony and The Drugs Don't Work.
The Verve were a true British rock band that made music the way it was supposed to be made. If you appreciate good music, you'll certainly appreciate this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmeric, awe inspiring - stunning! 2 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
"History has a place for may take 3 albums but we will get there" (Richard Ashcroft).
This album cements the claim made by lead singer Richard Ashcroft at the start of The Verve's journey into the music business. It drips with genius from every track and shows why, in 1998, the world of music lost one of the most influential and pioneering bands in history!
The remixes of songs such as "This Is Music", "She's A Superstar" and "Gravity Grave" really highlight the overall power of the tracks and the unique quality of Richard Ashcroft's voice. The new tracks, "This Could Be My Moment" and "Monte Carlo" are a rare treat and leave me panting for more...alas it's over.
Mesmeric, awe-inspiring - BUY THIS ALBUM!

5.0 out of 5 stars This IS Music! 10 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
What a great album, well worth the money!...and the wait.
Opener the raw "this is music" is such a confident song bursting with energy will be an eye-opener to fans who got into the verve around the Urban Hymns time.
"Slide Away" and "Lucky Man" follow, reminding us of the loss to the british music scene. Then perhaps the greatest single of the nineties "History", what more is their to say, just such a fine quality and haunting song.
Older songs fit really well with the later material (I'm sure they've mixed Richards vocals louder in the old ones too!).
Then the previoulsy unreleased "This could be my moment" ..WOW is such a strong song, so joyous and triumphant and a bit "pop" too (still better than almost everything Ashcroft has produced solo though) and "Monte Carlo" is the just icing on a cake that leaves you thinking "if only they hadn't split..." Come on!

Another great price from Zoverstocks. They always deliver! Love The Verve but couldn't see myself buying all their albums, so this seems like a good compromise.
