Premature Evaluation: The Verve - Forth

By theajaysharma

Ever since Richard Ashcroft flashed us his impressive cheekbones along with "Sit And Wonder" during the Verve's Coachella set, there's been a pretty steady flow of material from the band's forthcoming comeback album Forth. Just yesterday we debuted "I See Houses," along with its age old questions ("How many lives will I waste / how many tears will I taste / before my freedom?") and airy, psychedelic sound. Before that, we grew acquainted with the more upbeat, loopy, and exciting standout "Love Is Noise," which shows up right after the aforementioned "Sit And Wonder" on the album. The pair makes a fairly explosive impression, but then the Verve fall down and can't get up. - Source
