From the Record Company: There were 18 vinyl records for this package affixed with 3D Lenticulars, as was done on The Rolling Stones “Satanic Majesty.” These were to be given to the band and those directly associated with the album. Once the albums with the Lenticulars were placed and sealed into the box set, they were instantly misplaced and stacked with those to be delivered to the public, with no one associated with the album receiving a copy. There were a few remaining Lenticulars that were never affixed the jackets that have surfaced.

Due to this cover, the box set has been played once on a McIntosh TT.

No album by The Verve has ever been the same, including their current release Forth, with Urban Hymn no doubt being the most different ... reflecting a more deeply rooted lyrical side, delivering a couple of great hits, introducing The Verve to the world, and leading to the solo career of Richard Ashcroft.

Yet it is important to keep in mind that releases by The Verve are a culmination of the efforts of each member of the band, with Richard getting the lion share of attention simply because he’s the lead singer and stands as the flash point and spokesmen for the group. But without each other The Verve could never have become one of the best psychedelic bands in the world, doling out a mere four albums over the last twenty years.

The songs weave around the standard verse chorus form, producing a swirling effect that mutates with slow assurance and deliverance. “Love Is Noise” is very smart with a brilliant vocal hook, and dare I say, is quite a danceable acid fueled number. Other tracks like “Drugs Don’t Work” and “Appalachian Springs,” are coated in guitar work that simply melts all over you ... reminding me of a button I once saw in the 60’s that read, “LSD melts in your mind, not in your hand.” McCabe’s hypnotic arabesque guitar rhythms lace in and out of Ashcroft’s vocals, and rise to new heights between each word he sings. As far as instrumentation is concerned, “Judas” has to be the most ethereal piece on the record, rising so slowly that it is not until the very end of the number that the guitars really kick in and everything about the song expands so quickly it’s almost unnerving.

Forth is one of the most complete musical trips I’ve ever experienced or embraced, as there’s simply nothing I enjoy more then a thoughtful, considered psychedelic album. This release does not demand your attention as much as you seem to crave it.

With this the band’s fourth album, titling the album as Forth was sort of a play on words, as ‘forth’ means to venture out, to move forward, and not the number 4. It was also a strange title, as this album did not represent the band moving forward, but rather imploding. It’s also interesting to note that the band has formally disbanded or broken up three times by this point, with the breakup of the band already in process by the release of Forth, being the fourth formal breakup … though The Verve still claim that they are on extended holiday.

This album, The Verve's fourth, is patchy and disappointing after the excellent "The Thaw Sessions" free digital release (which had been intended to whet the appetites of longtime fans and stoke the fires for this album.) The songs that Richard wrote on his own sound like much of his solo output from 1998-2010: bland, overproduced, dull, and slightly itchy with recycled moments of The Verve's past, better moments. I tried repeatedly to like them, but Richard's half of the songs on this album are both unbearably dull and transparently shallow compared to earlier Verve output. The only good one is "Valium Skies", which has a bit of an "Only Living Boy In New York" airy, joyous vastness to it when it opens up. Unlike Simon & Garfunkel, however, Richard's lyrical content doesn't justify the emotion. Sometimes I fear he's an inadequate container for the emotion he's trying to transmit, and it all breaks down in the process of being put on wax. It's only when the full group is writing that there's anything really worth hearing on the album: "Columbo", "Noise Epic", "Sit And Wonder"; and then it's largely just about the group's sound gelling, and the layered landscapes messrs Jones and McCabe can paint, masters of lines and color. This would've made a spectacular EP if it were just the five great songs. Alas.
