REVIEW: Everything You’ve Come To Expect – The Last Shadow Puppets

The Last Shadow Puppets are a English rock supergroup, consisting of Alex Turner (of Arctic Monkeys, and his solo work) and Miles Kane (previously of The Rascals). As a duo, they’ve put out one album, titled “The Age of Understatement” that I am not familiar with. But since I am a Arctic Monkeys loyalist, I decided to check out the second full length record of the Last Shadow Puppets.

Everything You’ve Come To Expect is a pretty good record, but it does have some messy hang ups here and there.

The primary hangup that you notice is the lead single, “Bad Habits”. This song is abrasive, in the bad way. The vocals do not impress and really actually frustrate me. Alex Turner is a great smooth vocals, as shown on some of the softer tracks on the most recent Arctic Monkeys record, AM. Songs like Do I Wanna Know?, and No. 1 Party Anthem showed Alex’s great clean vocals. This song is also plagued with a guitar solo that sounds like it’s under water, and irritating instrumentation, especially the strings that were arranged by Owen Pallett. Owen Pallett wrote one of my favorite albums of 2014, In Conflict, that proudly displayed it’s amazing string arrangements. What happened?

Gladly that’s one of the only songs that I would call genuinely bad, We get “Sweet Dreams, TN” that has stellar string arrangements, and catchy 60s style instrumentation with the marching beat, and soulful backing vocals which make it a complete highlight. The opener Aviation has shimmering acoustic guitar running through the back of it, and more Arctic Monkeys style backing vocals. It’s another charming track, with Alex’s great vocals.

The record is a lot of mellow fun rock, and I would recommend it.

Everything You’ve Come To Expect get 4 stars out of 5.
