5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Album!, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Age of the Understatement (Audio CD)
As much as I love the Arctic Monkeys, if I want to listen to Alex Turner, I actually prefer The Last Shadow Puppets, his side project with Miles Kane (whose's solo albums I have constantly had on repeat).

The combination between Alex and Miles resulted in a solid retro style album. 'The Age of the Understatement' is wonderful sixties inspired music, but also modern and refreshing. With great songs, lyrics, vocals and beautiful production, there is a good vibe which comes from it after every listen. After a bad period in my life, uplifting music like this is perfect to chill out to. Favourite tracks include 'Standing Next To Me', 'Meeting Place' and 'My Mistakes Were Made For You'.

This was the only album that was released under The Last Shadow Puppets, although both guys have to continue to make great music since. 'The Age of the Understatement' entered the UK album charts at number one in 2008, and it's a shame that a second release never transpired. However, this album was a genius collaboration between two very talented young artists and should be please any fan of the Arctic Monkeys/The Rascals.
