Arctic Monkeys – Humbug

December 15, 2009

As you’ve undoubtedly heard, Arctic Monkeys released their third album this summer. It is the album that (finally?) made me like them. Even though earlier albums had catchier songs (hats off to 505’s beauty, for one), the difference that I feel is that this one’s made by a confident rock’n’roll band with a defined style, exploring and twisting themselves, playing for their pleasure far away from everybody. The fact that it has been recorded in a desert with Josh Homme (of Queens of the Stone Age) can also be sensed. The beats are just so sweet and tight.
