Nice to listen to but nothing inspiring
on 12 October 2011
So I purchased this as soon as possible due to my love of the one-off Last Shadow Puppets album which I absolutely adore. In addtion, I am a huge fan of ALex Turner and the Arctic Monkeys, so really it was a no-brainer to give Miles Kane a go, due to his strong links in the music industry.
To be honest, I was disappointed but looking back, I think i was expecting too much. After all, I should not really be expecting another Alex Turner, should I?
The album nicely mixes melodies of the Arctics, but the repetetive nature of the lyrics are strongly reminiscent of Oasis. However, I much prefer Miles' voice over Noel's.
Overall, I do recommend as something fun to listen to and if you like beatles-esque sounds then go for it. Not awful but nothing at all inspiring or original.
