sounds like a pointless cunt singing a shite song.
it sounds like most of his solo career then
it's not too bad actually. better than anything off 'Urban Hymns'. Though that isn't saying much.
the more I listen to it, the more I love it. those monkey vocals are catchy.
it's epic, but that doesn't automatically make it sound like U2. As a lead single, of course this was going to be catchy and commercial (and I doubt it's a fair representation of what the whole record sounds like). They were of course one of the biggest bands of the 90's. I'm just glad that they didn't go in the 'Lucky Man' direction and produce a dreary Ashcroft ballad. At least you can imagine this song will translate much better live.
I'm a huge fan of The Verve, but i think "Love is Noise" is just completely boring. It just sounds like an Ashcroft solo single. Terrible.
Ashcroft reformed the band for MONEY.
it would have been okay without them.
could cry, that songs is tragic. i love (The) Verve up to 1995. i've been listening to the Northern Soul singles this week in preparation for Glasto (yeah i know, like they'll play them): Little Gem; I See The Door; Back On My Feet Again; You and Me; Grey Skies - all great, great bsides, definitely worth tracking down. This new song is a massive disappointment, absolute trash. Still going to catch them in the hope they'll play early stuff (hopeful for Gravity Grave) but just glad i got to seem them in '94.
on Slide Away and see how far this band have fallen. :(
But without a chorus.
Frankie Goes To Hollywood.
I'll be watching the football on Sunday me thinks.
and realised "wow this doesent use the same chord progression of every song for the past 10 years".
but it was still pretty "meh".
Total MOR gash, what's the point in having Mcabe involved if you're not going to use his talents to the full!?The guy has been out of action for years and your comeback single has him buried under monkey noises that come out of Liam Gallagher's arsehole....The lyrics bastardise Blake's Jersalem in a terrible way. Its plodding crap, on a par with his last solo album.A shame after their initial sessions that harked by to their earlier work that appeared on the NME site.
And, on a completely unrelated note:
I vote for it sounding like Texas.
Are there any guitars on this track? I mean, I don't expect guitars on everything I listen to, but there is the small matter of Nick McCabe being my favourite guitarist in the World ever, and he seems conspicuous by his absence here. Unless it's him going "ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh". Which I doubt, somehow.
Q would write reviews like that !
