    I was a million miles from being an Arctic Monkeys fan. This album may have changed that musically speaking. Lyrically Turner is still appalling.

    Prime example is Star Treatment. Musically its very good... But the lyrics are abysmal.

    Listened today.

    Utter pish IMO just can't get into it. Earlier stuff much more appealing to me.

    In saying that, never really been a huge fan, just liked songs here and there.

    Tried giving it another listen but the only song I enjoy is ‘Four out of Five’. Wasn’t sure about that one at first but it has definitely grown on me. Can’t see the rest getting any better though.

    Well disappointed.

    8/8 for Alex Turner with the two Last Shadow Puppets albums going straight to number one as well. Not a bad record for two indie bands.

    First listened to the clip posted and thought what a bunch of wanks trying hard to be different or whatever and thought it was *. Listened again immediately and thought they're still wanks and the songs not for me but it's not that bad. Had it stuck in my head all day yesterday then heard it on the radio in work today which surprised me as didn't think it would get many mainstream plays. It's no as bad as I thought but just not my thing.
    And they're still wanks.

    On BBC2 now.

    First new tracks were chronic. Old stuff now sounds good.

    Seen them play in Barcelona last Saturday, think they played 3 songs out of 18 from their new album.

    Incredible gig.
