A Storm in Heaven

The Verve

Hut Recordings

Crashing in with a massive Nick McCabe guitar part, A Storm in Heaven very much captures the Verve when they were still a band rather than Richard Ashcroft’s attempted vehicle for stardom; throughout the singer sounds lost in the moods and exultant raptures of the group, in the best way possible. While associated with shoegaze here the band were in their own vast sonic realm, from the fragile echoing beauty of “Already There” to the heavy groove lope of “Butterfly” and the massive roar and feeling of amazement captured in “The Sun, The Sea.”
