Brilliant...genius, 21 April 2007
What a cd. I have only heard it five or so times so far but I just can't get over what a brilliant new sound the monkeys have come up with. Some of the songs retain the beauty of the debut album ('Fluorescent Adolescent' is reminiscent of the funky sound of Mardy Bum). But the genius comes with songs such as 505 and Do Me A Favour, which just show a new atmosphere that Arctic Monkeys are bringing, which is a sign that Arctic Monkeys will never grow old and will always bring new songs to the table that will attract new fans and send old fans into ecstasy.
Noone could appreciate this album properly on first listen. It will take a few repeats to realise the depth of all of the songs (however even the first listen of 505 sent shivers around every part of my body.) If you find that you don't like the album on your first hearing, give it a chance and I guarantee that this album will blow your mind.
Favourites(so far)- Fluorescent Adolescent, Do Me A Favour, This House Is A Circus, 505
