As I see it; paper is used for only three things in this world: Money, The Written Word and poo.

Kindly file this one under The Written Word for me please. This should belong in everyone's music library.

Warming lead riffs from McCabe undertoned by beautifully soft acoustic pieces and hugely deep, soulful lyrics from Ashcroft make for an unstoppable force. I don't need to justify a purchase of this album any further, you can't go wrong in buying this...

 One of those brilliant 90s Brit albums!

Once I heard someone say that if you have this album your respect should go up!
Thats how good it is, loads of brilliant songs with really good production. Every song is awesome that wont disapoint.
A must for a fan of either rock or britpop!

 The Verve Urban Hymns 1997

I bought this album back in 1997 i still have it but it sticks on tracks so at £4.99 i bought it off play.

Every song on here is a masterpiece One Day, Lucky Man, & the drugs don't work are my fave songs on the album.

I can't wait for their new album which is released later next month.

Buy Urban Hymns the best indie album in the last 11 years.

 their finest work so far...

for me, this is The Verve's best album. i know its polished and well produced and is relatively mellow compared to the space-rock of their earlier days, but being well produced and mellower isnt always a bad thing, as this album clearly shows.

Bittersweet Symphony is one of the best Peoples' Anthems ever, and it's a travesty that the Rolling Stones have tried to muscle in onto it and stealing credit where it is undue. The Drugs Dont Work is beautiful, one of the most perfect and moving songs ever written - even after 5 minutes you never want it to end while The Rolling People is a return to their heavier space-rock days. but its better than any of the 'space-rock' theyve done previously in my view.

while the more immediate tracks (singles, and also Weeping Willow and Space And Time), the less obvious tracks also grow on you after repeated listens (This Time, Catching The Butterfly). Urban Hymns is an album that bores more fruit the more you revisit it, which is a sign of a truly great album.

and just to add to what people say about this album soundtracking the late 1990s, for me there is a universalism about the album - it not only soundtracks the 1990s, but well beyond.

 Brilliant, best album of the late 90s.

There's no doubt that most people have this, or have listened to this album. It was the soundtrack to many people's lives in the late 90s.

You'd have to be living in the Rainforest not to have heard Bittersweet Symphony, Lucky Man, The Drugs don't Work and Sonnet. Not the best songs on the album in my opinion, the heavier Rolling People, Come On and the peaceful Space and Time and Weeping Willow are superb.

Not the best Verve album, but after all, they didn't have any bad albums.
