Having listened to this album for a few months now I feel happy that I spent my hard earnt £6.99 on it. I like many people do these days, purchased the album on the strength of one track, the first single, Brianstorm, of course the highly successful first album also had something to do with it. In the lead up to this album being released there was a lot of questions asked about whether it was possible to produce an album anywhere near the quality of Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. Well they’ve tried but have definitely fallen short. After the first couple of listens I didn’t really enjoy it other than the first half of the album and found myself ... Read the complete review

Favourite worst nightmare was the second album from the band the artic monkeys. Now the first album had been so good that perhaps it was a little too hard for the band to improve on their debut album and to pull another magical album out of the bag. And of course this was right, the album came out and although it was still a huge success it was no where near as good as the first one, it still contained strong tracks, but just didn't measure up to their first one. The album still of course shot straight to number one in the UK, however unlike the two singles off their first album, which both achieved a number one, the three singles off this one didn't manage to ...

On the back of "Whatever People Say I Am, I'm Not" which included the monster smash of last years "I bet you look good (on the dance floor)" the Arctic monkeys gained a mass following in the UK. This following lead to them smashing records for fast selling debut album and most songs in the top 200 (a pretty artificial record for now I feel) and on the back of this hype I went out and bought this album. Sadly I feel they mistitled the albu, and it should have had a title along the lines of "Average Hypemare", but hey it'll make a good birthday present for someone I presume. Now if you look in the media as a whole they seem to be ... Read the complete review

They arrived on the music scene with a huge groundswell that seen them record one of the fastest selling debut albums of all time. The internet buzz about the Arctic Monkeys for the year before that release was huge. The debut album really was a hit but how could they follow that up? Well this week has seen the release of the follow up, Favourite Worst Nightmare. The obvious doubts have been there about whether they would be a one record wonder or whether they had a little more substance to their musical ability. So having pre ordered this album weeks ago it finally arrived on Monday giving me a chance to answer the questions I had. Obviously the band have ... Read the complete review

If the Arctic Monkeys were an Internet site they’d be considered version type 2.0 these days. With a reputation forged on the Web and a following garnered from hearsay and rumour, the four-piece from Sheffield arrived in the big time some little while ago now to wide-spread critical acclaim. Having established a business model for fledgling bands hoping to break into the big time via MySpace and the like, no longer can the Yorkshire-ites be considered underground but, with that, brings bigger challenges and even bolder ambition. “Whatever They Say I Am, That's What I'm Not” became the fastest-selling debut album in UK music history, spawning two number 1 singles and ...
