iTunes Editors’ Notes

Arctic Monkeys first gained broad attention as a MySpace phenomenon, but with their debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, the High Green, Sheffield, band’s leaping rock and frontman Alex Turner’s biting observations of city life helped them become one of England’s biggest acts. On their second full-length, Favourite Worst Nightmare, they widen their sense of dynamics — “Balaclava” has a breakdown that suggests a love of War’s Latin-soul classic “Low Rider” — as Turner paints, this time more sourly, on a larger canvas. He seems to note his critics on “Teddy Picker” (“Who’d want to be a man of the people when there’s people like you?”), while “The Bad Thing” is a vignette of attempted seduction by a lady of means. What’s next? Who knows, but Turner’s general mood suggests that of Damon Albarn before he decided that Blur wasn’t allowing him to say everything he wanted.

Customer Reviews

well worth it for newcomers to and veterans of the arctic monkeys

excellent sequel to their first album. a bit of a new sound for them - a little less cheery tone overall, and less of the hard-driving, repetitive beats that made their previous album sometimes predictable. in truth, the arctic monkeys excel when it comes to beats. they produce their best sounds when they play off the beats, varying their entrances so that each entrance cathces your attention. this album displays that talent perfectly. their lyrics also aren't the typical sob-story sappy or simply ridiculous lyrics of most american music.

Finally

I have been waiting for this album for almost a year and it exceeds my expectations. Another amazing Arctic Monkeys Album!!!

Favourite Fails Not

Arctic Monkey's recent album was highly anticipated and thankfully lived up to its standards. Many artists and groups second album turn out to be let downs and all around crap. The Monkey's come back with a groovy album that is just as good as the first. Great job boys.

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...
