I ordered this item on vinyl as I absolutely loved listening to it on Spotify, and was really looking forward to adding to my collection of vinyl. However, the record was scratched on the final track of the first side and the second side was unplayable, and the actual record was warped. Amazon kindly replaced the album for me and the replacement arrived today. However the same issues persisted. The record was scratched and warped. It’s a shame as this is a great album and one of the Arctic Monkeys’ best. After looking at the reviews here it must just be a bad pressing. I’m going to be receiving a refund soon, and would recommend someone looking to buy this album exercise a bit of caution when ordering this in vinyl, you may have a turkey on your hands.

Pros
- Incredibly catchy, the hooks on this record are only matched by their debut album. The basslines compliment the drums perfectly, and this for me is the Arctic’s easiest album to sing along to.
- The vocals on this record shine on this record - Matt’s falsetto in particular is incredible considering how he used to sing (see D Is For Dangerous).
- A really varied amount of sounds. There’s a really fast paced, fuzzy guitar led section in R U Mine, shifting to songs like the ironically mellow Number 1 Party Anthem. Much like their career, this album does see a lot of progression instrumentally.

Cons
- I am a huge fan of this album so it’s hard to criticise it, but I am not entirely sold on how straight forward the lyrics are. Sure, it does make the songs incredibly catchy, but when Alex is being lyrically very blunt it kinda ruins my imagination and stops me getting lost in the magic of the song. My favourite album is Humbug, and having my own thoughts on what each song is about and it’s deeper meaning is something I like, but this record is very straightforward.
Overall, it’s a fantastic album that’s probably in my top 3 of the 6 they’ve released thus far.
Like all Monkeys records, a very pleasant and progressive step forward.

This albums thumps and grinds in swirl of rock and roll. The beats, the hooks, the bass-line catches you from the beginning on a rip-roaring ride. Lyrically this is an album filled with clever phrasing from a decidedly Northern and working class perspective, which explores those in-between relationship events, such as staying at a party in someone's house in the hope of getting off with them at the end of the night or phoning your loved one when you've had a few too many drinks. In this aspect the lyrics recall Pulp at their best, when the listener can identify with the thoughts and feelings of the narrator, and there is no trite cliche here. The melodies take you into unexpected corners and I often wondered how Alex Turner remembers all those words! I can't get those dirty riffs out of my head and I have been listening to this obsessively ever since I bought it. My only regret is having it on my wish list for months before I took the plunge. Buy it and buy it NOW!!!

A longtime requested present. Sadly the album comes in the cardboard style case which doesn't protect well after multiple times of taking it out and putting it back. Why do they do this? ... anyway, overall a good album well received.

A dark and moody masterpiece by the Arctic Monkeys, packed full of memorable set pieces that could all stand on their own as singles. One of those rare albums that has instant appeal and yet continues to reveal more and grow with subsequent listens. Definitely falls into the category All Killer, No Filler!

The cd's in my car. The digital copy is on my tablet and phone. And the tracks are in my head even when I'm not listening to it! Awesome tunes. Brilliant lyrics. Stylishly delivered. Best track? For me - Snap out of it. I only wish I could.
