Arctic Monkeys - Humbug

Post by paranoidandroid on Tue Aug 04, 2009 3:11 am

Anyone listened to this yet?

Link here if anyone wants: rapidshare.com Cold_Gorillas_-_Mint_Imperial.rar

Much darker and muddier than the previous albums and there is less catchy pop riffs going on but AT's lyrics are still amazing.

This album is gonna have to grow on me but there are def 3 or 4 stand out tracks

I listened to it twice if I'm being honest....

I can see what he/their trying to do he dosn't want the band to get stagnant there changinging and getting some hair round there knackers.

Not sure what i was expecting......Maybe its becuase its got an american sound (Ginger Josh)to it and there not. I'm sure our yank cousins will love it.

It just didn't grab me like the other two albums and the shadow puppets album.

At the min I feel its more standing on the shoulder of giants than morning glory (I'm not comparing, just using them as an example!!)

No it is different and wont appeal to all. It doesnt have any catchy pop riffs tbh but all the same they couldnt just do an extension of the first two albums some of the tracks here are going blow the roof off live!

I was expecting something a little different (more cos of the fact cos Josh Homme was on the production team) and it meets expectations although i can see why others are going to take more convincing.
