AM's one of my top bands. Music by Arctic Monkeys and The Strokes really helped me get through 8th grade. (2 years ago) I kept etching their names in hearts on the side of my desk in science class haha.

And I found out about The Strokes when I heard Arctic Monkeys cover "Take it or Leave it" on youtube and in the "related videos" sidebar there was a link to The Strokes's version of the song. I was first sad cause it was the $2 bill concert and it looked like the 1970s so I thought they were all old now. But it was really like early 2000s so I was like.. JACKPOT! i literally love all their songs, even b-sides and demos. they're my #1 band. Hope they dont fuck up the 4th album

But Humbug has let me down.. I hope their next album isn't down the same route. Or maybe I just have to listen to it a couple more times. FWN's my favorite so far. Their first album's really nice too - classic. And they have amazing b-sides and demos too. its funny how "I bet you look good on the dancefloor" is one of their top songs but its one of my least favorite of theirs

I love Humbug. I love FWN. I love WPSIATWIM.

I connect most with A certain Romance, Too much to ask, 505, Dangerous Animals. I have a lot of " favourites "

Humbug deserves a deeper listening, definitely. And then you'll find out that it's an excellent album, techincally speaking. If they had done a 3rd album similiar to the first ones, it would have turned out to be a mere repetition.
I like bands exploring other kind of music - yet without changing totally their style. I think they succeeded in doing it.

I've been playing Humbug the whole day! I like the way they grew musically over the years.

Arctic Monkeys is one of my favourite bands and Matt Helders is one of the most talented drummers I know!
Humbug is a very mature album, I love it. The Jeweller's Hand is wonderful! Though my favourite song is Leave Before The Lights Come On.   ;)
so true. it's very rare i hear music nowadays and my ears are drawn to the drums. they have good basslines, too.

I agree! Alex is a talented lyricist.
I need to find the interview where the interviewer asks Alex if "My Propeller" is about his dick.  Just think about that whilst listening to that track.  You'll never hear it the same again.
