This review is from: Submarine: Original Songs [10" VINYL] (Vinyl)
Alex Turner is without a doubt a fantastic songwriter. Whether you like the arctic monkeys or not, their impact on music in the noughties was a big one, and one for the better. This E.P/soundtrack is a far quieter affair than the Arctic Monkeys and allows Turner to show the diversity in his songwriting. The tracks here showcase some of the influences that Turner has that are less prominent in The Arctic Monkeys and the record evokes memories of Leonard Cohen's earlier albums, Richard Hawley's Cole's Corner and and is even reminiscent of Lou Reed's more tender moments.
This is a record that will echo in your mind for days and muster warm emotions within. A brilliant soundtrack for a brilliant film by and an utterly brilliant songwriter.
