5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Sexy Masterpiece September 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I still remember when I first listened to Arctic Monkeys classic debut album "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not". Even just the title was intriguing. It was one of the best post punk indie rock albums ever. Also one of the best rock records in the 2000s. The album had small success in the US, but did get a Grammy nomination. Then a year later they released their second masterpiece in a row titled "Favourite Worst Nightmare". I loved the slightly different musical direction of the album. It was another classic, but still the US was almost ignoring the band! Two years later they released "Humbug", which was also a great album. It was more psychedelic and sometimes reminded me of "The Doors" and legendary bands from the 60s. Then came what was honestly my least favorite album, "Suck It and See". It was a great album, but definitely a step down for me. I almost gave up on the band after that album. Finally they released "R U Mine?" as a single. It was the best song I've heard from the band in years. Then came "Do I Wanna Know" and finally "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?". The band said the album took influences from Hip Hop, most notably "Dr Dre" and I could hear it in the lead singles. Needless to say, I was sold and I couldn't wait to own the album. Finally here it is, and it is truly an amazing collection of songs. Here is a track by track review.

1. Do I Wanna Know?: The best single from the band since "When The Sun Goes Down" in my opinion. The pulsing hip hop beat will make you wanna clap along. The guitar riff is destined to become a classic. The way Alex muses the verses is perfect. The song is getting recognition in the US and I'm glad! Definitely one of my favorites. 10/10
2. R U Mine?

I have to blast "Do I wanna know?" and "Knee socks" all the time in the morning when I'm driving to work or else I feel like something is missing in my day. Coffee is also a good contender.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow April 22, 2014

this album sounds like really passionate sex on a rainy afternoon, in a dimly lit room on a mattress on the floor with rumpled sheets and everything smells like sweat, perfume, and cigarette smoke

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably my favorite album of 2013 February 10, 2014
By mg1015
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I had listened to this album enough on Spotify that I decided I wanted it with me at all times. I really love the way their sound has developed. I detect distinct notes of Black Sabbath and David Bowie, and somehow it all works together.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Musical Journey July 27, 2014
Format:Vinyl
When I first heard this album, it was on Spotify, and I fell in love with Arctic Monkeys immediately. That weekend, I was in my local record store and saw the album on vinyl. I immediately impulse purchased it, and it was one of the best impulse decisions I've ever made. The album starts out strong with the drunk anthem "Do I Wanna Know?" and immediately pumps you up with "R U Mine?". From there you experience masterful songs such as "Arabella", "No. 1 Party Anthem", "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?", and the finale "I Wanna Be Yours". Alex Turner and the other Monkeys take you on a musical journey which is pleasing to the ear while drunk, high, or sober. The only flaw with this album is that it's over too quickly. Being only 41 minutes in length, all 12 songs are expertly crafted and mixed, to give you the greatest album of 2013, (in my opinion of course). If you buy one record this month, buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new Black Keys replacement June 11, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Something's been missing lately from rock n' roll music lately - namely smart, quality music made with guitars, drums, bass and vocals. Everything is pop and robot voices these days, which is fine but bands that play rock music are increasingly rare. That role has been filled by the Black Keys for me lately. I heard "Do I Wanna Know?" on the radio and instantly got excited, thinking it was their new album that I knew was due soon.

Then the DJ tells me no, that was the new song from Arctic Monkeys. You're kidding right? I have and like "Whatever People Say..." but it's hard to listen to unless you're in a frantic, punky mood. This new song was totally different.

Next I'm hearing the catchy "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High" and that's it for me, I bought it hoping it's not an empty album with a couple catchy radio hits.

I'm glad to report it's not. This is a solid album front to back. Decidedly lower key than "Whatever People Say..." this is a more mature effort. It's both raw and refined at the same time somehow without being overproduced. The catchy radio songs that get your attention are replaced slowly by the more complex progressions of the rest of the tunes. It sounds like Black Keys with a little My Morning Jacket thrown in, with a British accent.

It's rare to find an album like this, so good from front to back. It's the type where if you keep listening, eventually you'll have a different favourite song 5 or 6 times. My favourite of 2013, even if I found it late.

This is basically the new Black Keys.

Bland, boring Garage Rock.
