THE VERVE TALK ABOUT THE SINGLE, ‘LOVE IS NOISE’ HERE:
“Balancing McCabe’s love of athletic jamming with Ashcroft’s bardic aspirations, “Forth” is centered on slowly building jams that pay off in transcendent choruses…” Los Angeles Times
“…the Verve presents a miasma of sound, full of swirling guitars and gurgling effects that evolve to find new hooks as they go.” New York Daily News
“Ashcroft and his bandmates continue the mission they abandoned on 1997’s Urban Hymns, wedding classic-rock swagger to dream-pop swoon in ten instantly recognizable tracks…. Are the Verve back? Maybe. Definitely.” Spin
“Forth is that rare comeback record—unafraid to show its age, and better for it.” Blender
“The Verve have reunited to release Forth, their fourth studio album of superior, psychedelic magnificence.” Vanity Fair
“….the trancelike gallop of bassist Simon Jones and drummer Peter Salisbury; guitarist Nick McCabe’s creamy distortion and ascending rings of tremolo and feedback; singer Richard Ashcroft’s drawling incantation, the songs skirt standard verse-chorus form…. chord patterns that swirl and mutate with slow assurance.”
“….the album will satisfy those wondering whether the band can achieve the nosebleed heights of its formidable back catalog (psst, it does). The swirling groover, “Sit And Wonder”, the driving gospel rock of “Love Is Noise” and the liquid gold that’s streaked through “Appalachian Springs” are as good as anything The Verve has recorded before….” The Onion A.V Club
“Current Verve fans will appreciate what took a decade to produce, and if newcomers allow themselves to absorb ‘Forth’, the Verve may just get their second chance.” UR Reporter Chicago
