THE VERVE Released Mind-Blowing Debut LP ‘A STORM IN HEAVEN’ 25 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

21 June 2018



Released: 21 June 1993 – 25 years ago today

ALL MUSIC wrote: “The group’s 1993 full-length debut, ‘A Storm in Heaven’, was based on buoyant, extended psychedelic passages. Looking back today, it was an interesting and original musical direction, since at the time, angst-ridden Seattle bands (and their many copycats) were all the rage. A fine debut, the important connection between the Verve’s expansive early work (1992’s self-titled EP) and their later worldwide pop hits.”
Score: 4/5 – Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Far-out longplayer in sound and vision. Add Richard Ashcroft‘s imposing voice and his state of madness and what you got was breathtaking psychedelic paranoia.
