5.0 out of 5 stars Stormy, 14 Sept. 2004
This review is from: A Storm In Heaven (Audio CD)
This is the Verve at their best. It is the closest you can get (along with the EPs) to resonating those beautiful early Verve performances where songs lasted 20 minutes and your head and heart were taken somewhere else. There will always be a part of me left in the rafters of Sheffield Octogan in 1992. Guitar sounds that chime like distant bells echoing in a dreamy valley(from the best guitarist of the 90's). Drum beats that shuffle beautifully. Bass lines that remain understatedly melodic. And then theres that Ashcroft fellow before he went too ladish (all that C'mon malarchy!!). These were the days when the man would shuffle bare foot on an indian rug looking like a student lost in the late 60's. This is a fantastic album. It doesnt need to be like Urban Hymns. It doesnt need that cockyness of Luck man. It is perfect as it is. Best listened to in a cave to add echo to echo or in a car watching the sun set over the beautiful Derbyshire wilderness. Dont judge it by what happened in the late 90's. Judge it by the innocence of those long 92/93 summers. Epic
