EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s an audacity to the way the Arctic Monkeys' fifth album gathers disparate musical threads—West Coast hip-hop, heavy ’70s rock—into something that feels so assured, inevitable and outrageously enjoyable. From biker-gang stomp of “Do I Wanna Know?” to the bouncing G-funk of “Why’d You Only Call…”, they turn the sounds of their adopted Californian home into a set of can’t-miss instant classics. Seductive, slinky and brimming with nocturnal attitude, AM is the sound of a band locating a sonic sweet spot no one else thought to look for.

Amazing

I have always been an Arctic Monkeys fan. They’re all gods, so I’m not surprised that it sounds so good.❤️

Iconic

AM is by far the best Arctic Monkeys album to date.
AM features a beautiful mix, better than any of the previous albums, wonderfully executed instrumental mastering, the best album opener than any of the band’s other work, and a sound that is completely unique to this album. Upon that, it boasts some of the gang’s best writing yet. With Alex’s signature lyrical genius and suave voice, Jamie’s smooth guitar work, Matt’s lovely falsetto and excellent drumming, and Nick’s fantastically solid and driving bass lines that bring every song together, AM is sure to become one of your favorites.
