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.

AM!

This is going to be their best album, I can feel it. Alex is on another level these days, Do I Wanna Know? Is one of the best tunes I've heard in a long time... That guitar riff with the infectious and tricky melody/lyrics is something else. I'm not afraid to say I've worshipped this band since back in 05/06, so my opinion is biased, I'm not alone though in thinking every album tops the previous, brings something new, digs a little deeper yet it always feels like AM. I'm once again, just as anticipated and gripped to hear any snippet of a new song as I was back at the beginning. It's also great to have complete faith in a band you know will deliver time and time again!

Is it just me...

....or does this sound like the same song played over and over again at various speeds? Vocal lines and guitar melodies even repeat between tracks...so it's a concept album/song cycle?

Biography

Formed: 2003 in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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...
