iTunes Editors' Notes

“Have you got colour in your cheeks?” asks Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner over the sinister guitar riff and plodding beat of "Do I Wanna Know?" It’s the first in a string of Turner’s leering inquiries, and by the time the song reaches its chorus—with bashing drums, falsetto harmonies and taunting attitude—Arctic Monkeys’ fifth album has made an authoritative opening statement. The band’s confidence is discernible on each minute of AM—a title inspired by The Velvet Underground’s VU, but one that can be read as a double entendre on this collection of after-midnight rock. Big sleazy guitar lines on tunes like “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High” and “R U Mine?” are over-the-top in just the right way, delivered with the charismatic nonchalance that’s marked the band's career. And while many of the collaborators are familiar (including award-winning producer James Ford and songwriter/producer Ross Orton), the album’s unexpected cameos include Queens of the Stone Age mastermind Josh Homme and longtime Elvis Costello drummer Pete Thomas.

Customer Reviews

most original yet

Why'd you only call me when you're high is one of their best singles yet. theres a poppier sound but they havent sold out. album of the year hands down as it has been with them every time they drop a new one

Wanna be yours

I have to say, as a die hard fan I was a bit skeptical with the popish sound on some of the tracks. But when I heard "I wanna be yours" I was blown away. definitely going to be another big year for the boys from Sheffield.

Brilliant

Honestly best album yet! I've been listening to them since their first album, waited for this one and definitely worth it!! Another brilliant album done by AM

By distilling the sounds of Franz Ferdinand, the Clash, the Strokes, and the Libertines into a hybrid of swaggering indie rock and danceable neo-punk, Arctic Monkeys became one of the U.K.'s biggest bands of the new millennium. Their meteoric rise began in 2005, when the teenagers fielded offers from major labels and drew a sold-out crowd to the London Astoria, using little more than a self-released EP as bait. Several months later, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What...
