Arctic Monkeys - Suck It And See
Since 2009's 'Humbug', Arctic Monkeys are definitely sticking to their romantic indie tunes on their new record 'Suck It And See'. It still shows the soppy side to Alex Turner with a few rocky tunes in there with songs like 'Brick by Brick' and 'Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair'. <br /> <br /> Starts off with 'She's Thunderstorms' which is one of best songs vocally on the album I think. Alex's voice sounds better on slow songs than on the big anthemic rockier ones. <br /> <br /> There's a track on the album called 'Piledriver Waltz' which is Arctic Monkeys' version of Alex Turner's Submarine EP for the film 'Submarine' and I actually seem to prefer this version than Alex's solo version although I have no idea why they put this song on the album. It's the most emotional track on the album for me. I think 'The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala' is going to be the festival anthem of 2011. It just has that summery festival feel to it. <br /> <br /> The closing track 'That's Where You're Wrong' has been compared to 'She Bangs The Drums' by The Stone Roses. They are one of their influences so there's no doubt we'd hear some Roses in there. <br /> <br /> 'Suck It And See' - A fine list of romantic indie songs with the odd heavy guitar riffs.
