I wouldn't count myself as being the biggest fan of The Lightning Seeds, but do like several of their hits. This 16 track compilation contains all the tracks you would expect, including 'Marvellous', 'The Life Of Riley' and 'Lucky You'. There are songs included here from the band's first four albums, all released in the space of 1990-1996, making this set still fairly comprehensive. There are two tracks which might not seem so familiar to the casual listener, 'What You Say' and 'Brain Drain', which were recorded especially for this collection, and are just as engaging as the famous stuff.
In all, a great collection, capturing all the highlights of the group's writer, singer and guitarist Ian Broudie. The music is quirky, upbeat, relaxing, and typical of many British bands of the same contemporary like Shed Seven, Dodgy and Cast. I really like the album cover, and the booklet contains full lyrics to all the songs. If you only wish to buy one album from The Lightning Seeds - 'Like You Do... Best Of' is the one to go for.
