Being a bit of a fan of the arctic monkeys I was surprised at this album. Alot of it is far less 'rocky' and far more 'acousticy' than usual. My friend actually told me this before I bought it and i almost didn't buy it as I mainly don't enjoy the acoustic sound. But I am a fan so in the end I bought it.
For any one out there who also thinks that they don't like acoustic sound much, DO NOT be put off buying this album. The supposedly acoustic songs are brilliant and my favourite ones on the album. Reckless Serenade is beautiful and starts with an amazing bass solo, Piledriver waltz has the fabulous lyric writing you can expect from Alex turner. Love is a Laserquest is one of their all time most beautiful songs. Suck it and see (the title song) is also catchy but also shows beautiful lyrics as well, some of my other favourites are black treacle and that's where your wrong. Over all this is another very strong album, and just because their direction is slightly different please don't let that put you off!
