The first Verve album, A STORM IN HEAVEN, was released in 1993, prior to some legal wrangling necessitating the addition of the definite article to the band's name. Appearing in the wake of the commercial success of the "shoegazer" trend in England, it successfully bridged the gap between the rock affectations of Ride's spectacular GOING BLANK AGAIN and Spiritualised's debut album, both early shoegazing cornerstones.

Building on the spaciousness of their first few singles, A STORM IN HEAVEN marries the Verve's psychedelic leaningsto the sonic whirlwind of Nick McCabe's guitar heroics. Highlights include "The Sun, the Sea", which is peppered with massive, crunching rock sounds, even featuring some hyperactive horns toward the end. "Virtual World", with the addition of flutes to the mix, conjures Jethro Tull caught in an elaborate crystalline guitar sound sculpture. The real winner here, though, is the majestic and enveloping "See You In the Next One (Have a Good Time)", which tones down much of the histrionics that precede it in favour of a dramatic acoustic sound with echoing vocals and McCabe's understated piano.
