Movie Reviews

The Best British Band of the 90's
C. E. Smart | New York, NY | 11/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This collection doesn't even begin to cover the fantastic but short music career of this great, great, superb band, but it's a start. With excellent lyrics, even better music and the haunting vocals of frontman Richard Ashcroft this was a band I truly thought was built to last. Pity it didn't. "Creative difference" cut their legacy short but oh, what splendid music they left behind. "Lucky Man" still brings tears to my eyes because it's such a beautiful song. If you don't know The Verve you definitely heard their epic song "Bitter Sweet Synphony" and that whole Rolling Stone controversy. The Stones should be lucky to have this band sample them. It coulda been P. Diddy..."
Their music will echo on...

"The Verve were a largely-overlooked, underappreciated band that made unbelievably beautiful, soaring music with equally mesmerizing lyrics to boot. It's hard to believe that they didn't enjoy more success, such as the likes of Oasis, Starsailor, or Coldplay.

It's said their internal bickering and various addictions got in the way, which is really unfortunate. Up until now, it was very difficult to see the videos for their songs, especially if you live outside the UK. The videos are beautiful to watch, if mostly to stare in morbid fascination at skeletal Richard Ashcroft. He looks like a being from a far away and fascinating otherworld.

This DVD collection is worth having just for the Bittersweet Symphony video, which so perfectly captures the song. Watch Richard amble zombie-like down the avenue while absently bumping into people and ignoring others completely. Their reactions to him are amusing, disturbing, or both. I also like the Lucky Man videos (UK and US versions both included here). The two video versions of the Lucky Man song are completely different and unique in their own way. See which video from this collection becomes your favorite. It may be hard to choose just one.

Verve is Rising

"The collected videos of one of my all-time favorite bands. Early on, they're wild-eyed and beautiful, while the videos for "Urban Hymns" shows them looking world weary. Could easily have been 5-stars were it not for the lack of extras (maybe the official VHS that came out in the late-90s, or at least some live footage, interviews, etc...) and the poor "History" video, which uses footage from the earlier stuff.

Still, the Verve were amazing, and there's a lot of that to be found in this DVD."
Superb Music, Great Videos!

"Except for the truly terrible video for "History", this is a great collection of videos, showing why The Verve are contenders for Best Band of the 1990's. They not only had a terrific sound, they had *The Look*. U2 and Oasis just pale next to these guys in both departments. "History" aside, the best videos are from the albums, "A Northern Soul" and "Urban Hymns". They are so good, they make up for the somewhat lesser real early videos. A MUST for fans of The Verve!!"
