|Arctic Monkeys Ranked|
The band's newest LP also happens to be their weakest. It feels so heavily infused
with American rock tropes that much of their appeal has been lost in the process.
Occasionally cringe-worthy lyrics rear their head, which felt impossible given the
songwriting quality of past albums.
Suck it and See
In my opinion an incredibly underrated album, the band's fourth LP is undeniably
catchy and bittersweet- a collection of pop songs that is never ambitious but always
The most melancholy record in their discography, Humbug is also their most
ambitious, featuring an impeccable combination of desert rock and all the trappings
that made them succesful on prior albums.
Whatever People Say I Am...
Often considered the band's crowning achievement, Whatever People Say I Am,
That's What I'm Not is an urgent, rollicking record about a few teenagers kicking up
dust in their home town. Howvever, the album's reflective songwriting and poetic
nature cemented them as a band that deserves to be taken seriously.
Favourite Worst Nightmare
An indie rock classic, the Arctic Monkeys found a perfect blend of the youthful energy
they demonstrated on their debut while definitively maturing their sound on their
|Agree with this list but I would probably switch one and two just to have a different opinion to everyone else ... Nah, WPSIA...TWIN is actually my favourite release of theirs|
|Its a very understandable switch. I've seen people have 3 as their favorite album as well. 1,2 and 3 are all pretty great imo. On a different tier than 4 and especially 5. |
|2 is 1 man |
|FWN LAST U FUCKIN WOT|
|it's the truth|
|I don't have a clue how I'd rank these, but AM would be higher for me. SIAS is worst|
|Band had gone downhill after the second release. The last album is kinda horrid.|
|Call me crazy but these guys are one of my favourite bands...|
4) Whatever People
5) Suck it
|Whatever People... after AM?? What has this world come too.|
what are the cringeworthy lyrics on AM?
|Whatever People Say first place obviously. Then the others tied.|
God, I fucking love this band.
|fwn is head and shoulders above everything after though|
|I used to think that too, but I don't really know anymore 'cause all their albums have their own unique characteristics that make them awesome. It mainly depends on my mood of the day which one gets the biggest approval.|
|not that anything they've done is below a 4 but any AM album with balaclava, do me a favour AND 505 on it has to be one of their best|
|1 is 1, props for that|
|"not that anything they've done is below a 4 but any AM album with balaclava, do me a favour AND 505 on it has to be one of their best"|
Heck, I'd probably 5 them all if it wouldn't kill my ratings because of "troll ratings", so I agree!
|Some lyrics that come across as a bit cheesey on AM:|
"So we all go back to yours and you sit and talk to me on the floor
There's no need to show me round baby, I feel like I've been in here before
I've been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go,
Will you pour me one for the road?"
"Now it's three in the morning and I'm trying to change your mind
Left you multiple missed calls until my message you reply
Why'd you only call me when you're high?"
Granted, its nothing bad. Just not up to prior standards in my opinion. Here's one of my particular favorite lines from Humbug's "Fire and the Thud:"
"The day after you stole my heart/ Everything I touched told me/ It would be better shared with you"
Come to think of it- that album has a lot of great lyricism. "Cornerstone" is a personal fave.
|Damn, that line from 'One For The Road' might be my fav off the new album. |
|yeah, both of those lyrics seem good to me. weirdly i think humbug is their worst lyrically, apart from cornerstone obviously|
|"Whatever People... after AM?? What has this world come too."|
Depending on the day I'd probably say that Whatever people is actually their best but I really can't help but think its just nostalgia talking
|FWN is best yo|
