Miles Kane: Change The Show Review

11. Tell Me What You’re Feeling

Despite being at the end of my list, this is by no means a bad song and definitely fits the overall theme of the album. Perhaps it fits this theme too much, and doesn’t have as strong a melody, lyrics or vocals as some of it’s predecessors and successors.

10. Coming Of Age

Upon taking another listen of this track, I feared that I may have placed it incorrectly. Turns out I just don’t enjoy it as much as some of the other songs, although it may be objectively better.

9. Don’t Let It Get You Down

I definitely spent way too long trying to identify the voice at the beginning of this intriguingly yet eloquently composed chamber pop piece, and was pleasantly surprised to realise I was correct with canine expert Paul O’Grady. The reason I put it a little higher than the last two is due to it’s perfect arrangement of melodies.

8. See Ya When I See Ya

A lot of people seem to compare Kane’s music to infamous The Beatles member John Lennon, however I see a lot more references to his son Sean Ono Lennon, which is certainly not a bad thing. It’s one of those songs that isn’t really single material but you’re very happy that it was chosen to be one.

7. Tears Are Falling

The epitome of a fantastic album opener, which some artists could draw inspiration from. The song covers the key themes yet has lyrics with elements of mystery. For example, we would never expect Paul O’Grady to be on the next track, would we?

6. Caroline

Here we are presented with a feel good track that I suspect to be a fan favourite. The production is well thought out, especially the part at the end where the vocals become whispers just before a short repetition of the chorus.

5. Constantly

This song jumped four places after my second listen. I cannot be sure, but it feels as if there’s a Lana Del Rey influence here, considering their collaboration Dealer was a perfect compilation of each musician’s talents.

4. Never Get Tired Of Dancing With You

The whole album feels pretty retro, however this song is no doubt the most rock and roll. I’m not even sure if I’d listen to this song more than Constantly and it certainly isn’t my usual taste, but there was something there that wouldn’t allow me to put this song any lower than four.

3. Nothing’s Ever Gonna Be Good Enough

Marvin Gaye and Tammi Tarrell are back it seems with a vintage tune accompanied with a modern twist. I knew the song that I heard first would be in the top three.

2. Adios Ta-Ra Ta-Ra

Instantly this song feels different from the rest, with more guitar than piano, more softer vocals than higher vocals. One thing that is the same however is the gripping melodies and swift fade into the chorus.

1. Change The Show

This and Nothing’s ever gonna be good enough were the only two songs I knew before taking a detailed listen of this album, and initially I believed Change The Show would be the end song. Either way the fact that this hasn’t charted in the UK will remain a mystery to me. Maybe it’s a little ahead of it’s time commercially. Makes me think of balloons drifting into the sky.
