The Lightning Seeds – Tilt


Tilt is the fifth studio album from British alternative rock band The Lightning Seeds. It was released in 1999.

After The Lightning Seeds had become a full band in 1996 with the release of the hugely successful single “Three Lions” and the album Dizzy Heights that November, numerous members left the band whilst Zak Starkey joined the group on drums in time for their successful greatest hits album Like You Do… Best of The Lightning Seeds (1997). The band’s successes alienated band leader Ian Broudie, who preferred being an “outsider more than a safe bet”. Looking to stir the group in a new direction, he co-wrote material with Terry Hall, Steven Jones and Mark Cullen for Tilt.

A departure from the indie rock sound the group had established, Tilt instead explores electronica and dance music. The band had predominantly recorded Tilt with electronic producer Simon Rogers, as well as working with Bomb the Bass member Tim Simenon and Cutfather & Joe on some material. Numerous critics saw Tilt as an attempt from Broudie to modernize the band’s sound. The lyrics on the album were less optimistic than they had been in the band’s previous work, focusing on subjects such as the Liverpool dockers’ strike, self-loathing pop stars and general disillusionment.
