Songwriters are not poets. In fact, songs are often bad poems. Take the music away and what you’re left with is often an awkward piece of creative writing full of lumpy syllables, cheesy rhymes, exhausted cliches and mixed metaphors. But of all those writing lyrics today, Turner is among the most poetic. His use of internal rhyme exists to be admired and envied. […]Where he gets it from is one of popular music’s great mysteries. In interview he’s no Oscar Wilde, and in conversation he offers few clues as to the origins of such ingenious lyricism. But it matters not, for what counts is the music, and what is done cannot be taken away. The Guardian on Alex Turner (x)
