CD Reviews

The Verve's best B-side sandwhiched between two classics.

"Is this single worth buying for one new song? Yes it is, "Never Wanna See You Cry" is of the b-sides I've heard of The Verve, thier best. The lyrics are similar to "The Drugs Don't Work" and the music has the classic string arrangment sound that The Verve established on "Urban Hymns". I don't think I need to discuss, "Lucky Man" and "History". If you haven't heard them then you need to catch up. This single could be the best proof of The Verve's brilliance."
Ok, so there's only one new track

"History is off of A Northern Soul, and Lucky Man is off of Urban Hymns. Both are beautiful tracks, but you can get em on the albums with a whole bunch of other tracks. So why get this?Never Wanna See You Cry is incredible in that deep, slightly dark way. The strings in the beginning are vaguely reminiscient to Pachebel Canon. Richard's vocals float over the orchestral tone, and twist the heart with just enough sentimentality. If you don't like the Verve's ballads, you probably shouldn't get this, but if you do, it's well worth the money."

"It took me many many moons to track this song down after hearing it on MTV Biorhythms on Steven Tyler. Many calls to CD stores and radio stations turned up nothing, leading me to believe that this song is not nearly as well known as it should be. The DJ that finally figured it out for me summed it up perfectly when she stated that if I didn't own this CD, it would be a "big mistake"."
