#858 The Verve – Urban Hymns

The Verve hit is big with their third album Urban Hymns. It is one of the best-selling album in U.K. chart history. One of the most iconic songs “Bitter Sweet Symphony” is on it it. Even I know this album extremely well. If you remember from previous entries I was not listening to much music in 1997.

My favourite songs were back in the day Bitter Sweet Symphony” and “Lucky Man“. I can really relate to the last song’s lyrics.

But how many corners do I have to turn?
How many times do I have to learn
All the love I have is in my mind?

Now, after all these years I really like “Sonnet“, “This Time”, and “Space and Time”. Actually I like the whole album. I like the epic music and vocalist Richard Ashcroft has a soothing vocal for me. I recommend it to anyone who likes alt. rock and Britpop. 9/10.
