We all know the hype behind the Arctic Monkeys debut album, which in my opinion is the most exciting LP iv ever heard since Oasis' debut in the early 90s.
Now, we have 4 brand new songs on the 'Who The Fuck Are The Arctic Monkeys?' EP, as well as previous album track 'The View From The Afternoon'
This is one of the best EPs I'v heard in a very long time. The new songs are great material expected from the group, and they all take on a more lighter approach to the previous albums tunes.
The style of music we are fimilar with is still there, but packaged in a much gentler tone.
Cigarette Smoker could be an exception, but the albums 3rd track, Despair In The Departure Lounge, is definately a great example of a mellow but beautiful Arctic Monkeys song, with great lyrics invoolving the usual depressing theme of heartbreak.
Onwards from here, we hear No Buses, another mellowish track. The final self-titled-album track is my personal favourite, as it adds a touch of enthusiasm and rock to the albums music - only a bit mind.
All in all, this is a great EP from a great band. I expected the best, and it was delivered. Buy it!
