Like You Do...Best of the Lightning Seedsby The Lightning Seeds
Like You Do...Best of the Lightning Seeds is a splendid collection of Ian Broudie's finest moments, offering a definitive portrait of his appealingly sunny, catchy melodicism. Drawing from all four of the Lightning Seeds' first albums, the collection hits all of the high points -- including "Three Lions" and a re-recorded "Waiting for Today to Happen" -- and adds two new songs, "What You Say" and "Brain Drain," which are as engaging as the group's hit singles. In all, it's an ideal introduction for neophytes, and for longtime fans, it's a welcome reminder of Broudie's fine pop craftsmanship.

What If, Life of Riley, Sugar Coated Icebergs and Perfect are some of my favourite songs now!
Listen in awe as every song slowly engraves itself, like a blue print on your soul. Each song is like a dance. Beautiful in it's fragility. Desperation, ecstasy, cynicism, doubt. Broudie's voice may sound plain but with every listen you hear that glint of sadness of a man repressed and alone. The life of Riley, Lucky You, Ready or Not, Sugar Coated Iceburgs, Perfect and What if. Music doesn't get much more powerful than this. These songs will take turns lifting you up, spinning you around dropping you out the other side with the tune whistling from your mouth. Before you know it, Broudie's stealth-like talent has made you a closet lightning seeds fan.
