The Verve - This Is Music (singles)

The Verve ‚?? This Is Music

Listening to the Verve's ‚??Best Of‚?? LP mimics the uplifting feeling you get after seeing Arsenal finally lose a game for the first time in a year and a bit. No need for power chords or stick-a-fork-in-a-fan guitar racket here - The Verve's duelling guitarists layer epic wave after epic wave of wah over the sublimely shifting rhythm section. All the old favourites are here ‚?? This Is Music, History, Bittersweet Symphony, The Drugs Don‚??t Work and Lucky Man, to name but a few. The only disappointment on this best-of is the ‚??new‚?? material (which is actually offcuts from the Urban Hymns sessions) and frankly could have been left off from here. Ashcroft‚??s solo material may be completely gash but when he was in tandem with genius guitarist Nick McCabe it seemed he could conquer worlds - this just serves as a fitting reminder.

8.7/10
