Product Description

Product Description

Arctic Monkeys' debut album 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not', topped every end-of-year poll going, and became the fastest-selling debut in British chart history. It rewired a generation, broke the boundaries between the moshpit and the dancefloor, invalidated the whole concept of celebrity culture to become that rarest of things, a smash hit with its soul intact. 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' is everything you hoped Arctic Monkeys would do next. Not so much a sequel as an upgrade, a breakneck technicolour journey through screwball punk and guitar-fuelled dancefloor heroics, it's very, very fast and very, very loud, yet at the same time boasting some of the strongest songs they've ever written. All the tracks on the album were produced by duo James Ford (The Klaxons, Mystery Jets) and Mike Crossey (Echo & The Bunnymen, The Coral) and also mainly mixed by Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Features the single "Brianstorm"

Any comparisons made with the preceding album are foolish. This is a successful Arctic Monkeys. No longer are they fighting and getting thrown in a riot van. No longer getting chucked from club queues from bouncers who want it all to kick off. They are no longer Brian.

The change in this album is vast and it would have been disappointing if they'd tried to emulate their first album. They've expressed the fast, intense life of living it at the top which is evident in the pace of Brianstorm. Telling us nothing stays at rest with the changing pace of Balaclava. This House Is A Circus speaks for itself. And Teddy Picker is pure genius.

Yes they haven't moved completely away from the Sheffield boys as in between all the vast differences there is the occasional song that could easily fit into the 1st album. Fluorescent Adolescent is the best song in the album and has all the cheek and lyrical fluency of Mardy Bum and A Certain Romance. I believe Only Ones Who Know is the only major disappointment on the album. Its placement in the album seems to suggest it's an attempt of slowing down the whole album, similar to Riot Van, but unlike Riot Van, just isn't as clever. But this is Phase II.

Arctic Monkeys are showing their true colours with this second album - they are not a stand still band trying to recapture the spark of past success. They are a band that are evolving with the culture of their local surroundings, which is what music is right?

Words over sound to convey an experience experienced by those making the music.

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.

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...

I love that vinyl's are becoming popular again. I bought this as a gift for my partner and of course he states that everything sounds better on vinyl and I must agree. A perfect gift for any Arctic Monkeys fan.

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?

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.
