This U.K. quartet specializes in oceanic, wall-of-sound guitar pop that frequently takes off on long, trippy adventures. You will hear nods to acoustic Led Zeppelin and beat-crazed Stone Roses on this neatly packaged, 49-minute companion volume to A Storm In Heaven, but The Verve excel at a stoned, shimmering intensity all its own. --Jeff Bateman

A hypnotic soundscape

"I love all of the Verve's albums but out of all of them I seem to keep coming back to this one the most. I has great variety and manages to capture the essence of the Verve. The live recordings have an amazing amount of energy - wait till you hear Gravity Grave! Rarely ever does a song blow me away like that. Definitely one of my top 5 albums."
(The) Verve's Greatest Sound

"Verve at their greatest, If you like Storm In Heaven this is even better! Watch out it will put you in a trance and then, you will be awakened by Gravity Grave live at Glastonbury 93 (track 8), Verve must have been amazing live. Anyway, if I were only going to buy two of Verve's albums they would be Storm in Heaven and this one. If you like early Verve make sure you check out The Verve [EP] too!"
The flipside to "A Storm In Heaven"

"While almost everyone praises "Urban Hymns" and "A Northern Soul", everyone forgets about early Verve which is just as great. "No Come Down" is a collection of B-sides, acoustic versions and a live song. Since all the material was recorded at the time of "A Storm In Heaven" it basically has the same feel and sound. My personal favorite song is "Make It 'Till Monday(acoustic)" which I think is better than the album version. "Twilight" is my favorite of the B-sides. The package the cd comes in is beautifully designed and I love the photographs. Get this after you get "A Storm In Heaven"."
