Released in the UK on 21 June 1993, 'A Storm In Heaven' was a modest UK hit (No. 27 in the album chart) but over the past two decades has come to be regarded as something of a psychedelic classic. Drenched in echo and reverb it 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.
Sourced from digital files prepared from the original half-inch tapes. Remastered by Chris Potter & Tony Cousins at Metropolis and Sabian at Fullsound. The vinyl lacquers were cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy and the records were pressed by Optimal Media.
