P.S. I have no idea what a DiS readers view of a troll is, perhaps criticism of any band, which is stupid in all actuality. Regardless, no offence is intended. (Always my intro)
The 1st 2 albums are flawed classics, 9/10's each, at least in my estimation. I have the 'Who The F**k Are Arctic Monkeys' EP, which I think is pretty ace. I saw them live at Malahide Castle in Dublin and I thought they were great.
What really pleases me is that the 3nd album didn't suck. The 1st half is great. As a whole, the record is good but not great. Although this is an achievement in itself as they didn't fall into the crummy 3rd album trap like The Strokes and Interpol.
From a band who could do no wrong, is there any possibility of a turd sandwich around the bend? The sad truth is yes.
I found nothing in these 2 new songs that are going to be on their next album. I though the latter was especially brutal.
