I never really got into Arctic Monkeys. Always thought they were QOTSA for people who drink Carling and wear shutter shades. However, I listened to that album around the time it came out and was pleasantly surprised with how good it was. I wouldn't go so far as to say I loved it, but it definitely resonated with me a lot more than their previous stuff. If they continue on that trajectory, they may have a new fan on board
I know a few Liam Gallagher wannabe's so an accurate description rkid.
Talked with a guy today who isn't a fan of the new direction. "I know Arctic Monkeys as a..." *pauses to air guitar* " band y'know?"
He said they should stay true to themselves and rock out on every record. And that this Elevator Music era is plain naff to him.
Alternatively, I put an argument forth that they've been maturing as a band and Alex and co are maturing and experimenting. It's odd that he loved The Last Shadow Puppets but not the new single. Strings on Mirrorball being as lush as they are.
When "The Car" is released I'll think about scooping a copy from a shop down the road.
