Default All this praise for the Arctic Monkeys album. I dont get it.

I think the album AM works best if you don’t expect it to define another decade - in fact, if you don’t expect anything at all.
6/10.

I agree. Overhyped, over-rated, and not a patch on their previous stuff.

My personal opinion is that they stop being great after their first album...

Are you kidding me? AM is one of their best. 'R U Mine' and 'Do I Wanna Know' lead the way as the popular songs on AM. However, I believe the best songs are 'Knee Socks' and 'Snap Out Of It'. AM must be the most clever album from the lads.

I don't get all the hate that this album gets. It's a good album. No, it's not as good as their first two but it's not that far from it either. I really like it.

I don't know if I'm the only when , but the first listen was absolutely bad , but when I gave it another shot it was way better , i couldn't help it but crying to the song Mad Sounds, though it's supposed to be a happy sound . Old albums are better I give you that , but to say that AM is bad is definitely not righteous , so let's just say that the album was fine .

Yeah, u do have to listen to it a few times to like it more, but trust me, I've listened to it a bit now and its one of my favourite albums right now.

The best song on the album is the cover of "War Pigs"...

Wasn't grabbed by the new singles at all so haven't bothered to give AM a listen yet, I loved WYTIATWIN, Favourite Worst Nightmare and Suck It And See, but was indifferent about Humbug.

Default I love it

I personally love this band. Just because they're becoming way more popular doesn't mean they suck.
