This is Music: The Singles 92-98
The breathtaking opening salvo of the title track reminds us how truly underrated The Verve was and what the world is missing now that they are gone. With messiah-crazed Richard Ashcroft’s vocals front and centre, these songs are the same time heartfelt (try not to shed a tear during “History” or “The Drugs Don’t Work”), uplifting (“Bittersweet Symphony” says it all) and psychedelic. This compilation does justice to and spotlights one of the best bands of the ’90s. This truly is music.
