The Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner gives props to Nick

From this interview in the Scottish The Daily Record.

However, he is willing to concede that he’s one of the best lyricists of his generation.

He said: “I think I’m alright as a lyricist, you know?

“But then what will happen every couple of months or so is that I’ll hear a song I’ve never heard before and feel I’ve gone right back to square one.

“Recent examples? That Nick Lowe song, The Beast In Me, which is just brilliant.

“It doesn’t happen too often that I’m blown away by someone else’s songwriting, but I’m sure that is going to continue.

“I mean, I’m quite young and there’s so much music I haven’t heard yet.

“Being blown away by certain songs teaches you how songs should be constructed, though, so I’m always listening.”
