I've long been a fan of the Lightning Seeds, ever since I heard “The Life Of Riley” playing in the background of BBC Sport's Goal of the Month segment, many years ago. “Tilt” has been around since 1999, but I only discovered is last week. There are many great songs, but “If Only” is a real stand-out. As usual, the music can only be described as a happy brand of perfect pop, dominated by the talent of Ian Broudie. Superb, layered production values and mature, interesting lyrics make this disc a classic.
