One stunning album !!!
Monday, November 24, 2008
I followed the Verve just before A Northern Soul came out and besides Spiritualized, they were my favorite band. When they released Bittersweet Symphony and everyone seemed to be playing it I was very much looking forward to the albums release.
When it came out, I ordered a 180g special version LP. What a work of art awaited me !!! Melodies, swirling electric guitars, mesmerizing pop hooks and wide-ranging lyrics... plus the band really sounded focused and connected.
Other than Soundgarden, plus Spiritualized, no other band, to me, could excite me on so many levels: emotional, intellectual and spiritual.
This version I received is better than the one I ordered. The same matte cover and I love that the sleeves are original... yay !!! The Verve made a very aesthetically pleasing album and I'm glad the artwork was preserved.
Anyone who loves the Verve needs to own this version !!!
