Product Description

di Rosario Boccadifuoco   Piccole scimmie crescono: è il caso della giovane band di Miles Kane(sicuramente l'avrete sentito nei Last Shadow Puppets, duo formato da lui e dal frontman degli Arctic Monkeys, Alex Turner) . Altrettanto probabilmente sulle prime battute farete difficoltà a distinguere questa band da quella di Sheffield:  il timbro vocale di Kane è pressochè identico a quello del collega delle scimmie artiche e il sound vira in maniera paurosa verso l’indie-rock, con quella solita spiccata e maniacale cadenza brit , che cala subito i suoi assi con un “Out Of Dream “ che in breve tempo vi trapanerà e vi si conficcherà nel cervello. I Rascals si rivelano fuoriclasse nel creare la giusta miscela di chitarre e ritmiche indie, corteggiandole pero’ con inaspettate impennate surf e prog e lambendole con una psichedelia che trasuda ritmiche e combo in perenne mutazione, come in “ The Glorified Collector “ o negli assoli scatenati di “Fear Invicted Into The Perfect Strange “.C’e anche spazio per episodi piu’ tirati come “Does Your Husband Know That You're “ con tanto di urletti finali che fanno molto Robert Plant. Potremmo parlare della solita band di ragazzini retro’ che suona indie rock secondo i dettami-tormentone del momento, ma qui sembra esserci qualcosa in più: saranno quei timidi frammenti sperimentali e retro’ o il lontano ecoscottwalkeriano che riecheggiano in ogni pezzo,  (da sentire “Freakbeat Phantom “ o “Stockings To Suit “), a re

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad at all 28 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've had this for a couple of days after really looking forward to it for a while (I only heard of the Rascals after the Shadow Puppets record).
It's OK: like the Coral crossed with Arctic Monkeys but not as good as either (who are both excellent). Without going into a track-by-track description, it sounds exactly like you probably imagine it would, though it just doesn't consistently gallop along like I expected. There is a good mixture of pace, but maybe a bit much mid-tempo...
Certainly, it is not as immediate as Monkeys albums (or the Puppets one).
The sequence is strange too. I like the end of the album better than the beginning, whereas normally I tend to find the songs I like best at the beginning.
Still, I'm glad I bought it. It is well worth a listen and I reckon I'll come back to it in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it, a lot 1 Sep 2008
By Kiki
Format:Audio CD
It's a good album, no it doesn't sound like the Arctic Monkeys or The Last Shaddow Puppets (that's probably because they are neither of the above bands). Worth listening to and this band plays well live too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut, should have been a lot bigger! 28 Sep 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not to be confused with the '60s group of the same name - The Rascals' first and only album 'Rascalize' was the first time people had heard of the extremely talented singer/songwriter Miles Kane, who of course later teamed up with Alex Turner to form The Last Shadow Puppets and is now enjoying a well deserved successful solo career.

Despite only peaking at a ridiculously low no.100 in the UK album charts, this is a very good debut. With a distinctive British alternative sound, the music is excellent, the songs are dark and exciting and showcase Miles' range. I just can't understand why it didn't receive the attention it deserved the first time around. 'Rascalize' spawned two excellent singles: 'Freakbeat Phantom' and 'I'll Give You Sympathy', neither of which did much either but will always be part of Miles Kane's anthology.

If you enjoy alternative rock music, you should buy this album, and you as well will be left wondering as to why this promising band didn't enjoy the success they should have done.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Miles Kane fan, and really like this album 18 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album as I really like the Arctic Monkeys, The Last Shadow Puppets and Miles Kane, so I thought this might be a good album to try. I love most of the songs, especially the epic bond-like bassy ones, but found some of the songs a bit repetitive. However if you like the work of Miles Kane or the Rascals, I'd definitely give this album a go :)
