It earned nearly unanimous critical praise upon its release, and went on to become the band's best-selling release and one of the biggest selling albums of the year. As of 2015, Urban Hymns is ranked the 18th best-selling album in UK chart history and has sold over ten million copies worldwide.

 

The album features the hit singles "Bitter Sweet Symphony", "Lucky Man" and "The Drugs Don't Work". The critical and commercial success of the album saw the band win two Brit Awards in 1998, including Best British Group, and appear on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in March 1999. "Bitter Sweet Symphony" was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song.

Music plays a huge part of many of our lives and recorded music in particular has become a soundtrack to our busy daily routines. We run, we work, we drive, we party, recorded music is most commonly listened to within the context of another activity. It has become increasingly rare that we consume albums in their entirety in one sitting and do just that, just sit, listen and enjoy, the music being the central focus. 

 

Classic Vinyl Playback brings music and vinyl lovers in Gibraltar together to listen to a classic album on vinyl, through high quality equipment, in its entirety in a unique setting and as close as possible to the way in which the artist intended.
