As a big fan of everything Arctic Monkeys, I decided to check out Alex Turner’s other project, and, yeah, it’s not that good.
I like the aesthetic they have on this album, it reminds me of the Beatles’ HELP!, but, the problem here is, well, the execution, I like the songwriting, and some songs are really catchy but, more than half of the record is just almost unbearable for me, i’ll still give it to them, those two last tracks.

While Alex Turner’s songwriting isn’t as prominent with The Last Shadow Puppets as it is with the Arctic Monkeys, Turner and Kane make a great team and the Spaghetti Western style is clever!

Fav Tracks: Standing Next To Me, The Chamber, Black Plant, Only The Truth, Calm Like You, Time Has Come Again, My Mistakes Were Made for You

Es un buen álbum. La atmósfera creada funciona correctamente y las voces de Turner y Kane funcionan fantásticamente.
