The Verve – Urban Hymns (5/6)

If there is one album that could sum up an entire band’s history in just its soundtrack, it would be The Verve’s Urban Hymns. Released in 1997, it encapsulates the trials, tribulations and issues that constantly surrounded the band as they struggled up the path of success in the music world. It’s variety and complex nature sets it apart as a brilliant piece of musical writing and the hits that come with the soundtrack, namely ‘The Drugs Don’t Work’ and ‘Bittersweet Symphony’, really do a stellar job in showcasing the depth and deepness to the band’s inner workings. 

Consistently being praised by critics, scooping awards and providing fellow musicians with some of the best jams out there, there will always be a special place in music history for this inclusion.
