If The Beatles were considered as the chief influencers to Britpop, then “Tattva” would be the direct descendent of George Harrison’s sub continental experiments. How Crispian Mills and co. manage to combine eastern styles with the lines of a mantra and yet still create a chart single is virtually unexplainable were it not for the fact that its basic roots remain in classic pop rock and superb melody. That you can almost smell the incense is a wonderful bonus.
