Awesome debut album.
The result of a collaboration between Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and lead singer of The Rascals Miles Kane, The Last Shadow Puppets' debut release is a predictably epic affair. The title track single is a cinematic patchwork of Morricone-esque themes and rhythmic motifs, dashed off with the sullen Northern wit we've come to expect from Turner. With strings arranged and conducted by Owen Pallett (otherwise known as Final Fantasy), 'The Age Of The Understatement' is a musical departure for Turner and Kane, taking in influences such as Scott Walker and David Bowie.

Collaboration between the all-conquering Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and pal Miles Kane from cosmic Scousers, The Rascals. The pair met when Kane's previous outfit, The Little Flames, toured with the Arctic Monkeys, he had also contributed to the Sheffield act's second album FAVOURITE WORST NIGHTMARE (2007). The Last Shadow Puppets atmospheric string-laden debut THE AGE OF THE UNDERSTATEMENT (2008) was clearly influenced by Scott Walker's early solo works, and gave Turner his third UK number one album in just over years.
