Most music magazines (NME / Kerrang!) etc is full of crap anyways.. I never listen to what they sey.

Yes, there is a lot of hype around this band but its for all the good reasons, definately album of 2006 so far and one of the best debut albums ever made..

Too early to judge the monkeys - great review, but for your repetitive links to Mike Skinner who himself is an overhyped Rap wannabe and you say his northern accent doesnt get irritating - that line "he's such a scummy man" really does get irritating! But none the less is a decent album 3/5!

Wow, this is the next best thing the UK has going for them? I don't think so. Sloppy guitars, boring songs and terrible lyrics do not a good band make. Maybe if they spent time working on their material instead of incessently paying homage to others (especially in their lyrics), they could have become something better. Saying that they're far above Hard-Fi and The Libertines is like saying that Creed is a massive improvement over Pearl Jam.. it's a non-sequitor.

Well-written review, though.

What?
You could argue Hard-Fi and The Libertines are a little better Arctic Monkeys. But comparing them to Creed and Pearly Jam? I dont know about that one.

When I first heard this album I thought it was terrible. It has grown on me... in a major way.

I know what he meant. I dont think you know what I mean. I was saying that the difference between Hard Fi and Arctic Monkeys is much smaller than the difference between Creed and Pearl Jam. This Message Edited On 03.07.06

I enjoyed this album, thoroughly. I never really have taken a liking to indie music, but for some reason, I liked this a lot. Stellar review as well, Iai.

As some other people have mentioned, this album seems monotonous at first until you listen to it - it really, really grows on you, especially the beginning sequence of tracks.

This album is good and the arctic monkeys have come up with some catchy tunes. but their not a revolution in music. There is too much hype surrounding this band!

This really is worth it, despite all the hype. As many people have said, a great album.

Did anyone here see them on SNL last night? Good opportunity to introduce them to the American audience, though it didn't seem to go over too well based on some conversations we had last night on mx.

Pretty good album. I don't see why it's getting so much hype and selling so many copies. It's good and alll, but nothing legendary. Certainly not on the same level as Definitely Maybe.

This is a decent album, but nothing amazing. The music is definitely nice to listen to, but I can't recall one song from the album. Nothing really stands out yet there are no weak tracks.

I have a huge list of CDs to buy before this one, so I can't wait to hear the new single.
The first one (at least the first I heard) captured my attenion I hope the second ones just as good.
BTW I followed your steps, but I still can't figure out how to get a custom avatar. Can anyone help me?
