EDITORS’ NOTES

After rolling around in the desert rock sludge of Humbug, the British rockers button up their suits for a slightly more refined guitar pop sound on their fourth album. The beats have (mostly) softened and slowed to midtempo grooves, enriched by chiming guitar and polished with a vintage, mid-century sheen on pop gems "She's Thunderstorms" and "The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala." But the band's wild side slips out on "Brick By Brick," which moves frantically over chunky bass and stormy riffs—nearly fast enough to keep up with Alex Turner's wordy witticisms.
