Humbug isn't the best album, but it's not like it's shit you know.
I like Pretty Visitors 'cause the first time I heard it I was like "OHH!!! I remember them playing this at Øya!" Lol

Favourite Worst Nightmare is my favourite, I guess.
My favourite songs are I bet you look good on the dancefloor, Mardy Bum, Balaclava, Fluorescent Adolescent and.. BABY I'M YOURS :-* :P
I feel the same way. my favorite is favourite worst nightmare, but some tracks from whatever people say i am thats what im not are really good as well...perhaps vampires is a bit strong, view from the afternoon, you probably couldnt see for the lights.., and when the sun goes down (scummy) are interesting (: There sound has changed a lot though so I think some of their huge fans might have been disappointed.  I think the took a huge risk and they had some balls for doing it.

Cecilie I'm so jealous of you, you've met EVERYBODY!!!

Anyhow, been a huge fan of arctic monkeys for years now, still haven't seen them live which sucks, and am not that excited about humbug yet...sadly :'(
But it has some great tunes to it, like cornerstone, pretty visitors and my propeller :)
Haha, and the video for cornerstone is so precious!!!

The most overrated band of the decade. Essentially, George Formby with electric guitars. Hate.  >:(

How are they overrated? I think they are underrated and they dont get enough recognition for their unique sound.

Humbug isn't my favourite album of theirs but it is a grower, I think, and they have proved that they can evolve and have longevity. I really really like them, and I'm so gutted we couldn't get tickets  :'(

And Pretty Visitors is one of my favourited off Humbug, along with Cornerstone and Secret Door

I don't think they are anything special, and they are constantly called the best band to come out of Britain in years by fans/press. To me, that makes them overrated.

They aren't a terrible band, I just don't think they are deserving of all the hype I see about them, personally.

Personally for me, in my lifetime, Radiohead, by a country mile.  Followed by The Smiths, Stone Roses, Blur, Elbow and Gomez.

I would have to agree with Radiohead and Stone Roses, but I'd have to add Arctic Monkeys and Muse. Ahh, I'm proud to be British  :)
