The Lightning Seeds

Overview

The Merseyside pop combo, who gave the world "Three Lions", the catchy (as in contagious) theme tune to Euro 96, follow up their album Jollification with the dangerously named Dizzy Heights.

Critical view

Andy Gill was disappointed. "The album languishes in the huge shadow cast by the Beatles... the gap between homage and parody has all but disappeared." "Contains some sugary-sweet three-minute pop beauties, but there's a creeping Tunes R Us feel to Broudie's songsmithery," admonished the Mail on Sunday. "As good as it gets," pronounced Q. "The tunes lie seductive and seduced in the noonday sun, bedazzling. So, be dazzled," gushed Melody Maker.

Our view

Another day, another product for the Beatles heritage industry. Broudie can probably do better than this.
