10 Dic 2010, 20:37 de AcquiescenceIt’s easy to trumpet each passing year as the best yet in these introductions, but in my own honest opinion; 2010 – as undeniably great as it was for music – hasn’t toppled the one that preceded it. This year didn’t deliver that one perfectly assembled 10/10 record the way that 2009 blessed me with We Are Shadows. It’s also responsible for some of the most crushing disappointments from once dependable bands who before now had flawless discographies; the very worst offender being Midlake. As an aside, here’s what I wrote about them months ago…
Their new album The Courage Of Others turned out to be the musical equivalent of stumbling upon your granny sitting eerily motionless on a living room chair and prodding her with a stick to check for any signs of life. The difference being of course that sometimes your granny wakes up…The Courage Of Others never does, and remains as stagnant as a weed-invested drainage pond. Essentially The Trials Of Van Occupanther stripped of all the interesting…

An album that keeps bringing back memories. And it's got one of the best album covers I've ever seen.
2.) Some Friendly
A really consistent record, best if you listen to it as a whole.
3.) A Storm In Heaven
This album has got one of the best intros and best outros ever. The guitars on Star Sail and Slide Away blow your mind. It reminds me of my last days at school when I realized that life is not as good as it seems, really sad and boring. But this album is really good, worth a listen.
4.) The Stone Roses
The cover is inspired by Jackson Pollock. John Squire, the band's "visual artist" as well as very gifted guitarist, came up with the idea. …

When I discovered The Verve a few years ago, it was a very important musical shock for me. To the point where it soon became my favourite band and I became slightly obsessed with their music. I recently started to dive deeper into their legacy and to collect everything I could find by them on the internet (b-sides, demos, bootlegs, ...) which, considering the quality of their outtakes and the amazingness of their live performances, only contributed to increase the addiction.
This journal doesn't just offer me an overview of my collection. It is a tribute to The Verve and also serves as a good insight of The Verve's legacy for non-fans, newcomers, people who want to know more about this band or even fans. You'll find many videos here, their music videos and some of the highlights of their live history.
So, here is a detailed report of my Verve collection. By "collection" I mean, what I have on my computer and the way it is ordered in my library…
