RATING: 4/5 GLENN TILBROOK - Happy Ending FORMER Squeeze man Glenn Tilbrook may be 56 and a father-of-four, but he certainly hasn''t lost his mojo. Indeed, he may well just have made the best album of his long and illustrious career. Tilbrook has matured magnificently as a songwriter while the musicianship, as you would expect given his pedigree, is exemplary. Opening track Ray, the touching Persephone, fourth track Rupert and witty closer Ice Cream showcase him on highest form. Great stuff.
RATING: 4/5 BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB - So Long, See You Tomorrow 'POLISHED' is the word to describe Bombay Bicycle Club''s fourth album, which embraces the London quartet's dalliance with electronica. The record was mostly written while frontman Jack Steadman went travelling and Bollywood provides an exotic influence for the rousing opener Overdone, highlighted again in Feel, without becoming overpowering or parodying. Discordant stomper Carry Me proves as gritty as the 'indie rock' band gets, but the chilled, breathy Home By Now fits more into a beach-trance vibe continued on It's Alright Now. So Long, See You Tomorrow is a pleasure to listen to, and keeps getting better. RATING: 3/5
