When Jane's Addiction reunited, I have to admit, I was cautious at best in my optimism. If Soundgarden reunites - I can imagine nothing but diminishing returns. Ditto for the Smashing Pumpkins.
BUT... I do have to admit - the premise of The Verve reuniting - WITH a new album - just...just might turn out to be a move that won't tarnish their stellar career. Here's hoping for maybe not another Urban Hymns-quality album, but one at least on par with A Northern Soul.
