An awesome album that shows Urban Hymns to be rather lame, 3 May 2000
As an exiled Northerner in London the strains of "I'm just a northern soul...too busy staying alive" really hit home. This album is amazing. It takes the stoned atmosphere of "A Storm In Heaven" and adds a rock/pop dimension. Tracks like "Northern Soul", "Life's An Ocean" and "This Is Music" are timeless. It's an album you will listen to in phases and keep coming back to. We await the solo Ashcroft stuff with baited breath but he will find it difficult to get such a sympathetic aural backdrop to his vocals as on here. An album to enjoy time and time again.
