Forth by The Verve



The Verve

Play on Napster
Label: Parlophone
Eleven years since the Verve's last album and Richard Ashcroft's manic-depressive disposition still reveals both brilliance and overindulgence. His stadium-sized wails linger in the doldrums as Valium-fueled distortion lifts songs like "Sit and Wonder" and "Columbo" into the otherworldly space of A Storm in Heaven, and hyper beats boost "Love Is Noise" into the grandiosity of Urban Hymns. The decade-long stagnancy hasn't changed their sound, but with tracks that jam past six minutes and dawdle in glossy production, the Brits often get too swept up in their own extravagance.
