  1.  This should be in your cd collection


    As the Roses are my fave band of all time I am coming across as a bit biast, but this album is the best of all time for so many reasons. The album is packed with quality tunes from the opening and eerie 'I Wanna Be Adored' to the majestical 'I am the resserection'. The instrumentation and lyrics are perfect which will leave you uplifted and inspired once you've listened to. Plus you can't go wrong for £2.99 and free del can't you.

  2.  Great for the new fan


    This is a great complilation for some of The Verve's best work fo the new fan to get into with the singles and the two unreleased tunes from the 'Urban Hymes' sessions, but I would also recommend buying the three albums and the B-Sides/Outakes CD called 'No Come Down' which is also a worth while purchase. If you already have this CD and the DVD this isn't worth purchasing.

  3.  One of the best albums in the 90's


    This in my opinion is one of the best albums to come out of the 90's. It was overshadowed by the whole britpop scene but Massive Attack held their own and this is my fave album from the four they've released to date. The first 4 tunes are absolute gems and were released as singles. 'Exchange' is an instumental track and sounds good. The next four after that are gems too with Mezzanine being a standout tune with its deep dark beats and vocals which switch from 3D and Marshall. Group 4 is another quality tune which starts off slow with vocals shared between 3D and Liz Frazer then the guitars come in and turn it into a darker tune. Exchage is a nice chillout album closer with simple beats and effects and with the soulful vocals of Horace Andy complimenting the tune very well. All in all buy this album and u will not be dissapointed.

  4.  Don't expect a rock compilation


    I decided to buy this compilation by Ian Brown as he's one of my fave muscians and I love his work with the Stone Roses and his solo stuff to date. If people are expecting this compilation to just feature rock musicans then think again cos Ian Brown has a wide range of musical influences which are evident in his solo stuff. I would say this CD is a tale of two halfs. The first 8 tunes feature Hip-Hop with the opener from GZA, Rock with The Clash and reggae with Buju Banton and Junior Byles and others. The next 8 tunes are a mix of 60's Nothern Soul, Gospel and Soul. I really enjoyed listening to this CD as it gave me an insight into what influenced Ian Brown with my fave tunes coming from the first 8 tunes of the album the opener by GZA is great, 'Fade Away' and 'Compliment' are top reggae tunes. The next seven were ok with 'Too Late' being a fave of mine so all in all if u wanna know what influenced the great Ian Brown then buy this.
