I've found the word to describe what's so good about this album.
It's those reverberated guitar soundscapes.
They're very subtle and gorgeous and can also be heard on 'A Northern Soul' by the Verve, and to their best extent on 'A Storm In Heaven' by the Verve.
I wonder if they ever consider playing those great songs in their current shows? High Speed, Sparks.
Also: I know a lot of people liked them when they were in their early stages. Anyone ever meet Chris Martin before he got taken over by something around 03? Was he ok?
