Album Review

As the non-Arctic Monkeys half of the British supergroup duo the Last Shadow Puppets, '60s-centric singer/songwriter Miles Kane crafted folky, enigmatic pop songs heavily indebted to the dark, baroque chamber pop of Scott Walker. On his 2011 debut solo album, Colour of the Trap, Kane once again delves into the psychedelic era with a connoisseur's ear for detail and comes away with another similarly ambitious collection of bluesy psych- and folk-inflected rock. In fact, with fellow Puppet Alex Turner on board as co-composer for half of the tracks, the album could very well serve as a kind of follow-up to the Puppets' 2008 debut, The Age of the Understatement. To these ends, tunes like the menacing leadoff track, "Come Closer," the bluesy acid garage of "Inhaler," and the similarly snarling "Happenstance" sound like the best Oasis songs you never heard. In fact, Kane even makes the Oasis connection explicit as Noel Gallagher sings backup on the midtempo T. Rex dead ringer "My Fantasy." Elsewhere, the singer delves into the bubblegum meets Brit-pop-sounding "Rearrange" and delivers the moody, John Lennon-sounding romantic title track ballad.

Customer Reviews

A great start

Brilliant debut album. The tracks, come closer, telepathy, inhaler and rearrange stand out but the whole album gives off a great vibe,with brilliant guitar riffs the whole way through. Miles has definitely started his solo career on a good note

Top class!!!

Really good album, start too finish, cant keep it out of my dock ;-)
A real good buy for €6 and some live vids too, cant wait to go to 1 of hes giggs

Still finding his feet

Lacklustre debut album From miles, I expected more from this guy. Only goes to show Alex was the main reason for the puppets success. All is not lost but & showed some good solid songwriting with a couple of tracks . Back to the drawing board. Next time round I'd like more quality songwriting over hype please.
