A Northern Soul (1995)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Jun 20, 1995; Lead Performance: The Verve; Genre: Rock

Swirling, psychedelic guitar textures substitute for melody on the British band second full-length album, A Northern Soul. While riffs huff and puff in search of a hook, the lyrics repeat the same banal motifs over and over. Lacking a substantial artistic vision, the Verve creates a musical sound and fury that signifies nothing. B
