The Verve is back recording again. I guess Richard Ashcroft had enough of his solo career. Should be interesting to see if they recapture 1997's Urban Hymns glory days.

The Drugs Don't Work:
Fans, haters, Underrated, Overrated, what's the consensus?
Loved it from first listen.
Amazing album, I can just listen to Bittersweet Symphony all day, and the rest of the songs are, almost all, great. I dislike a few although I don't know which ones right now.
An amazing album of the brit-pop era (albeit at the tale end of it...)
Bittersweet Symphony is a classic, but songs like Sonnet, The Drugs Don't Work, and Weeping Willow show the true songwriting talent of Richard Ashcroft.
Favorite album moment: guitar solo at 3:51 of The Rolling People.
It's a very good brit-pop album. "Sonnet" is amazing.
But as a whole I prefer the album "A northern soul", great from start to finish.
Heard it once, liked it, but never had the urge to listen again. 7/10
