I fear that if the next album is more of this it will backfire.

Album Rating: 3.8

Prolific indie-rockers Arctic Monkeys evolve naturally & return to somewhere near their best on their James Ford produced 5th LP 'AM'. As instrumentally tight as ever, the English quartet place more reliance on rhythms, although some terrific riffs still exist. Witty, compelling & rather seductive, Alex Turner's vocals sound assured, the usual lyrical nuggets are abundant & harmonies are enhanced by falsetto backing vocals. The enhanced diversity does have a flip-side & there are some track ordering issues, but 'AM' is ultimately a satisfying combination of old & new. Recommended Tracks: Do I Wanna Know?, R U Mine?, Snap Out of It & Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?

Well atleast I had to suffer through the Strypes before I got to see them. Which was horrendous.

Mostly the new Album. Everything from this except mad sounds =( and Knee Socks. Also the classic fan favorites (Brianstorm, Teddy Picker, Bet you look Good, Flourscent Adolescent)

I will admit, I'd be so massively deflated seeing that setlist.
