4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent album from an excellent band, April 28, 2007
This review is from: Favourite Worst Nightmare (Audio CD)
Hype is unfair to everyone involved, be it the artist being held to lofty expectations, or to the fan, who rarely can have expectations met. Arctic Monkeys are trapped in the Hype controversey which is unfair, and ignores the band's talent and ability. Their first album was amazing, and with catchy hooks for a fun night on the town. Some liked it, others didn't. This second album will most likely not change anyone's mind who did not like the first. First, the band chose a darker sound with a harsher edge, hurting the fun aspect of the first album. Then there is the issue that there are nothing quite as catchy as I Bet You Look Good On the Dance Floor. But that would again put them into an unfair expectation category to judge them by their past album. As an album, this is a great record, the music works, tight production, and feels like something to put in your car when out on a saturday night with friends. An excellent album. Enjoy it.
