EDITORS’ NOTES

Alex Turner and Miles Kane perhaps dreamed up the name of their band’s second album as a playful nod to the very specific, very stylish sound they executed so vibrantly on 2008’s The Age of the Understatement. The cinematic strings, mariachi brass, and spirit of Scott Walker remain, but as swaggering single "Bad Habits" (unsubtly) hinted, the pair are working with a broader and bolder color palette. Unshackled, they delve into delicious ‘60s psychedelica (the title track), Nashville heartache (“Sweet Dreams, TN,” “The Dream Synopsis”) and elegant, wicked baroque pop (“Dracula Teeth,” “Patttern”). See you for round three in 2024.

Finally

I swear, I almost peed my pants when I found out that they're coming back!

Incredible

Love every second of it. Saw them in LA and at weekend 2 of Coachella and live they are just as amazing. Hoping for a release of their cover of the Beatles' "I Want You" at some point.

Humbug

Am I the only one who hears a bit of humbug in this album
