Also included are the tracks "Endless Life" and the moody album closer, "Feel," which is over ten minutes long. Worth the time of any serious Verve fan.

    Set Your Heart Free

    Oceans of gentle guitars and psychedelic rhythm wash over vocals that sing the purest blues. The Verve's debut ep will make you feel 20 different emotions all at once. This is what music should be.
