Record was bought new and was slightly warped. No pop, tick nor click were heard upon first listening. There is a non- disturbing faint surface noise throughout the record. This pressing shows some signs of "congestion" and seems to have a narrow dynamic range (using my humble ears and a Rega RP1 with carbon conical stylus). In my opinion, there is no significant audible benefits over my CD version.

This is quite a good little debut album. The Last Shadow Puppets' music, in my opinion, is very much reminiscent of Arctic Monkeys. I suppose this is unsurprising considering Alex Turner's role in the band, but Miles Kane's inclusion in the band has done little to change the Arctic Monkeys sound, in my opinion. Perhpas they have a slightly grungier feel, but it seems to me Turner is the dominant force in the production of this album.

I think the addition of the London Metropolitan Orchestra, however, certainly benefits their music and saves them from being just another unoriginal britrock band. While I would've expected this to be a stupid attempt at experimentation on the part of the band when reading the liner notes, clearly they've pulled off this risk. Unlike some bands, they use this instrumentation when it is suitable to the album itself, rather than throwing copious and unnecessary instrumentation in, as some bands are wont to do. In fact, they really shine when they include orchestral arrangements, giving them a very fresh feel to fans weary of conventional britrock.

All in all, a good debut album.
