The Last Great Album of The 90's,
This review is from: Urban Hymns (Audio CD)
The year this came out, so did albums by Prodigy, Oasis, Blur and Radiohead. This album was the sound of the summer.
The sheer emotion of the lyrics and the beauty of the songs were something that hadn't been around in England since Joy Division or before.
Songs of such intensity are still lacking today and song writers write songs that sell, not realising they can never package singing from the heart.
This album is brilliant for love and best after a nite clubbing when you need a calm thoughtful album. Unlike some it is not too miserable and is like a Soft Rock Eminem in the way it conveys feelings in a contemplative not moaning way.
Definitely an album 2 own if you have any pretence of music taste!
