The band’s initials, a new morning, an analogue radio frequency and an existential statement - the title of Arctic Monkeys’ fifth album AM suggests all of those things and more. And the record itself lives up to this pithily resonant billing by being, in drummer Matt Helders’ typically forthright ... Read more in Amazon's Arctic Monkeys Store

BBC Review

Less than fifteen months after releasing a debut record which rewrote most music history books, Arctic Monkeys return to prove a point to those who still remain unconvinced by the retiring and nonchalant Sheffield quartet.

With the world waiting for the most almighty of musical slip-ups, the Arctics have found themselves under a burning microscope in the build up to the release of Favourite Worst Nightmare. Could this be the moment where Alex Turner falls flat on his face and admits that maybe, just maybe, he should have spent more time appeasing an interview-thirsty media frenzy? Not bloody likely - this is an absolute treasure.

''Brianstorm'', a volcanic signal of intent, ''Teddy Picker'' and ''D Is For Dangerous'' give the album a rocketing lift-off. Ascending guitars do battle as the band's much promised darker and heavier side comes to the fore. With a succession of jaw-dropping riffs, you are engulfed by a fever that was last induced by ''The View From The Afternoon'' and ''Ritz To Rubble''.

Favourite Worst Nightmare illustrates a great degree of maturity in many ways. Turner's mastery of lyrics hits home more than before and is sure to connect with an older audience who felt excluded by Whatever People Say I Am! And wherever Turner, fit to burst with aggression and sexual frustration, has raised the bar, drummer Matt Helders has sailed over it with a virtuoso performance.

In a practically chorus-less 40 minutes, it's difficult to find an ineffective track in a many-faced record. The slowest of songs, ''Only Ones Who Knew'', could be curtailed by a minute but still makes for a great transition towards a slick finale. From ''Do Me A Favour'' - the ultimate break-up track- to the cheeky-cheating ''Do The Bad Thing'', the denouement is special. Final track ''505'' is the perfect bookend to sit opposite the brash ''Brianstorm'' with a tenderness sure to surprise.

Expect green-eyes from all corners (from The Strokes through to Klaxons) as the Monkeys continue their pursuit of perfection. Rather scarily, Favourite Worst Nightmare has surpassed previous heights scaled by the band and will have many a rival tossing and turning in their sleep for years to come. --Tom Young

This is one addictive listen. I haven't repeat listened to anything so much in years (not even their first album, and that is saying something)
This album is a huge step forward that I'll bet alot of people didn't expect from the band. Far from cracking under the pressure the Arctic Monkeys have delivered one heck of a strong album, an effort to be proud of.

Songs like 'Teddy Picker,' and 'Balaclava,' give listeners what they've came to expect from the band, with jaunty riffs, brash chords and their unique brand of lyrical genius (fans will know what I mean)
And songs like 'Only Ones Who Know,' display a melancholy ballad-ry like 'No Buses,' or 'Riot Van.'

A special mention is also in order for drummer Matt Helders who's skill has improved exponentially, impressive considering most people would already say he's the most talented member. The fills on this record are awesome, and his technical disco meets rock swagger style fits the album very well.

The stand out songs are the energetic 'This House is a Circus,' the chilled out '505,' and the aforementioned 'Teddy Picker.'

Buy this right now, you won't hear a better album this year; its basically still the Arctic Monkeys sound, but executed and produced much better, a mature and professional version of the raw and lovable debut.

This is a weird one. It's one of the albums which, when you listen to it for the first few times, doesn't exactly grab you, but somehow you know it's good, and further down the line you're gonna love it. I saw them do Teddy Picker and 505 on Later last night and found myself saying Blimey, these really are good songs." And so they are.

So, if this album doesn't smack you round the head on the first few listens (like the first album did) then fear not, it'll get you in the end - the song writing really is quite special.

Seriously, I was nearly put off buying this album when reading some of the earlier reviews posted. Many people had the opinion that the "new sound" of this album was awful. Well, please do take my word for it (as well as those of other reviewers below) that such opinion is pure guff. This album and the work it encompasses, whilst a departure from the earlier "Whatever..." album, is still the Arctic Monkeys, but bigger, better and an absolute stomper of a follow up album. I'm ashamed I even doubted them in the first place. Well worth the money, well worth more than a fleeting listen, and well worth at least five minutes of my time reviewing...

The Arctic Monkeys' first album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not immediately blew me away, and it's still an old faithful that is guaranteed to draw me in and lift me up. When I reviewed it, I said that I loved it on first listen, which I did, and that it sounded so polished that you would think that the Monkeys had been established for years.

The band's second album, 2007's 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' did admitingly take me longer to get into, I was first under the initial impression that it was fun enough, but not a patch on the first. However, after a few more listens, I was hooked, and even though I still wouldn't consider it as a better release, I do really enjoy it. My advice is to listen to it a few times through before you make your final verdict.

'Favourite Worst Nightmare' spawned three big hits, the most notable is the outstanding 'Fluorescent Adolescent', which has become something an indie-anthem. This catchy tune is the story of a woman who is basically 'growing up', and is now looking back at a relationship and the good times they had. Other great songs include 'D Is for Dangerous', the Punk-influenced 'Teddy Picker', and the energetic 'Brianstorm', which just missed the top spot of the UK singles chart.

Alex Turner is one of my favourites, the man sure knows how to write a good tune, and his voice is instantly recognisable. This album from one of the best modern rock bands of the past ten years is a solid album, full of relatable British lyrics, amazing guitar riffs, and an energetic, mainstream indie sound. It just gets better with each listen, trust me.

PS: Isn't the album's cover just awesome?

I think I might get slated for this but am I the only person who thinks the first album is a whole load better. Don't get me wrong musically it is tight, flawless infact. They have obviously come on leaps and bounds but something is missing. OLD YELLOW BRICKS, TEDDY PICKER and BALACLAVA are the exception to the rule. One thing I liked about the first album was the laddishness, references to nights on the lash in any town really and above all catchy tunes. Other than the songs I mentioned above this album isn't that catchy. Don't get me wrong, they are one of my favourite bands still, I just reckon expectations of them are off the scale. This is still a good album to get you dancing and bass lines continue to be well funky.....just give me the first album anyday.
