Drenched in echo and reverb, ‘a storm in heaven’ is highly atmospheric, extremely nuanced and, for many long-term fans, remains the band’s ‘lost’ masterpiece.

For a debut it was as adventurous and audacious as they come - with Richard Ashcroft’s semi-hallucinatory lyrics of hope, love, isolation and insanity reflecting the burgeoning mood of a generation. Life under post-Thatcher Tory rule might have been grim, but as Ashcroft sang in Slide Away: ‘These are our times and your highs.’

*** For this super deluxe 3cd + dvd reissue the album has been remastered and is augmented by the inclusion of all the pre-album E.P. tracks, associated B-sides and acoustic versions, as well as two previously unreleased BBC radio sessions and two excellent unreleased studio tracks – ‘South Pacific’ and ‘Shoeshine Girl’. The accompanying DVD presents a 1992 Camden Town Hall concert, the USA promo video for Blue, unseen footage of the band in New York in October 1992 and a video for the unreleased ‘South Pacific’ ***
