    If you are looking for ‘all the feels’ on a cold winter’s morning, ‘Change The Show’ will warm the cockles of your heart and make you yearn for the carefree and hazy festival days of summer.

    Much of the magic in Change the Show, as with most of Kane's work, is in the way he turns being a kid of the '90s with an obsession for all things mod into something of his own oeuvre.

    Kane has now made what he has called a "grand, souly album". And at times his bold move pays off. [Feb 2022, p.31]

    Kane's appeal remains in relishing the retro. [Mar 2022, p.80]

    When Kane rises above that tentativeness, as with the rousing and charismatic title track, the effect is engaging. But for the most part, this solid but unchallenging album is a step towards nowhere in particular.

    He's pushed his sound forwards into more mature, less swaggering territory and recruited non-threatening guests Paul O'Grady and Corinne Bailey Rae. [Mar 2022, p.83]

    All in all, the blanketing lime-lit production, the in-your-face ’60s nostalgia, the five-sugars-in-the-tea gooiness of it all may be too cloying for some, but Miles Kane has been so upfront about these musical influences, and for so long, that one can only admire him for so faithfully embodying them.
