Why do critics have a bad attitude about The Verve's new record, Forth? I don't get it. It's a great album. I have seen several geniuses compare it to Richard Ashcroft's solo work (implying that his solo work is crap) and say that it's nowhere near the album that Urban Hymns was. Well, do your research people. Ashcroft wrote Urban Hymns as his frist solo album and then changed his mind and released it as a Verve album. And yes, Forth is a bit darker and heavier in some places but if I wanted to hear Urban Hymns I would just put that album on. Do listen . . . if you are or were ever a fan, it won't disappoint.
