Johnny Borrell's reputation precedes him. Having famously proclaimed himself to be the greatest songwriter of his generation, you could easily be forgiven for dismissing him as just another conceited and deluded young hopeful. That is until you realise that he has the material to support such a claim - with this first offering from Razorlight threatening to be the most significant debut since The Stone Roses fifteen years ago.
