I'm one of those who've literally only heard Bitter Sweet Symphony and Drugs don't work from The Verve. I decided to take the plunge and listen to this album - it's really really good. It makes me feel like I'm enveloped inside a dark emotional plane of water.
i want it... but i know I shouldnt because then i wont have any masterpeice guarenteed to look foward to.
Until them im one of those ignorants that thinks Urban Hymns is a life affirming album of brilliance.
