Product Description

Product Description

Debut solo album by the Rascals frontman. The album features songs co-written with fellow Last Shadow Puppets member Alex Turner, Gruff Rhys and Sean Bonniwell, and includes the singles 'Inhaler', 'Come Closer' and 'Rearrange'.

BBC Review

When Miles Kane absconded from his day band The Rascals to knock out the scintillating Bacharach update that was the Last Shadow Puppets album with Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner, he clearly found his niche. For this, his solo debut, Kane carves for himself a position as one of alternative pop’s prime retro-visionists as firmly as Brian Cox has cemented his role as the universe’s smiliest harbinger of doom. Not since The Bees’ A Minha Menina has 1960s psych-soul sounded so fresh; authentically swathed in Tornados twangs and spooky cellar-pop atmospheres, Colour of the Trap could have been unearthed from some hidden basement lair beneath Joe Meek’s old studio. You half expect to blow on the sleeve and dislodge a cloud of dust.

While so much Ronson-sealed retro is all about re-upholstering Motown for the nostalgia market – the equivalent of digitally colouring in old footage of Aretha Franklin – Kane knows that the true power is in the spirit of the time, and this he sets about capturing with a craftsman’s eye. So Inhaler makes a buzzy, rootsy, garage gospel-blues racket out of what might well be a song about asthma treatments, while Quicksand squishes all the miniskirt-flapping thrills of the entire 1963 run of Ready, Steady, Go! into three minutes of twinkling pop brilliance. There’s detail and reverence in the Stones riff stabs of Come Closer, the Bolan bounce of My Fantasy, the Spaghetti Western surf of Counting Down the Days and the Hammond helltones of Kingcrawler that make them feel like lovingly reassembled dinosaur skeletons given new flesh.

That all of the songs recount romantic misdeeds and obsessions only serves to conjure all the more a period when 99.99% of all pop songs were about girls and the remaining 0.01% were about surfing or satellites. But how long can Kane keep his time-travel pop sounding relevant? Colour of the Trap, impressive an achievement as it is, is begging for diminishing returns. First the Shadow Puppets, now this… let’s hope Miles shows us what he can do with the current decade next time, or he’ll date as ferociously as a pre-nuptial David Walliams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talented artist's promising debut 13 July 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I confess, the solo work of Miles Kane didn't really interest me until I heard a few days ago his new single 'Don't Forget Who You Are' from his second album of the same name, which I bought immediately. I was drawn to buying his 2011 debut 'Colour Of The Trap', and have now found a new favourite artist. I loved the music of The Rascals and The Last Shadow Puppets, but I'm enjoying Miles' solo stuff more.

This album is filled with solid songs with a deliberate retro 1960s feel. My personal favourites are 'Come Closer', 'Inhaler', 'Rearrange', 'Take The Night From Me' and 'My Fantasy'. There is currently some brilliant new music in the UK charts, and I think that Miles is definitely one of the best solo acts at the moment. This excellent debut album is in fact one of the strongest British albums I've heard in a long time.

Most of all, as well as his singing, 'Color Of The Trap' showcases Miles' talent as a songwriter. He is able to pen upbeat tracks as well as songs which are slow and relaxing, despite the difference in style, all of them are very catchy.

I highly recommend both 'Colour Of The Trap', and 'Don't Forget Who You Are'. Roll on album number three...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album 13 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought the album for my boyfriend as he is a big Miles Kane fan and even I was overly impressed with the album. It's not very often you get an album where all the songs are as good as each other - there's not a single weak song on the disk and each song is very different to the rest. Most definitely worth the money, I am now a converted Miles Kane Fan!

This album is as good a 1st album as definitely maybe by oasis. It grabs you straight away and never disappoints. In the words of spinal tap "it goes to 11!" a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 15 Jun 2014
By Louise
Format:Audio CD
Well worth a listen. I believe many people were put off by his appearance in the Last Shadow Puppets (why, I wouldn't know) but rest assured, it sounds nothing the same. It's still brilliant, but in a more out there, less muted way. Miles represents a new generation of indie, one of which I'm extremely excited about.
