Arctic Monkeys: AM

One excellent example of and call for the “Album”. Whether conceptual or not, Arctic Monkeys' fifth LP is a wonderfully cohesive and diverse album that fits together incredibly well. This is Alex Turner at his most lyrically poetic and musically complex.

Arctic Monkeys: Suck It and See

The nods to their own past are always brief and measured; this album was crafted by a band moving inescapably forward.

Arctic Monkeys: 13 April 2010 - Tulsa, OK

Thus, this sealed the deal in terms of a very disappointing performance. Let’s hope it was just one bad show and nothing more.

Arctic Monkeys: My Propeller EP

Arctic Monkeys' EP runs largely on the title track's strength. Still, even the weaker tracks point to a bright future for the band and its nascent laureate, Alex Turner

Arctic Monkeys: 3 August 2009 - New York

There’s a difference between being “fan friendly” and “for the fans”, and this was definitely a show that was for the fans.

Arctic Monkeys have come a long way since their neo-Britpop "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" days. Who'd have thought they'd ever have a video featuring tractors of all things...

The Top Ten Arctic Monkeys Songs

From dynamic post-punk to brawny stoner-rock to jangly California pop to moonlit glam, Arctic Monkeys' five albums have displayed impressive range. It’s the main reason why they occupy the enviable spot they do in the music world.

Arctic Monkeys - "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High" (video)

The last two Arctic Monkeys singles have exposed an all-too-human chink in leadman Alex Turner’s leather-clad armor: the dude has a serious weakness for drunk/stoned dialing.

Arctic Monkeys - "Do I Wanna Know?" (video)

Boyish and clean-shaven, Arctic Monkeys may not have the look of a stoner-rock act, but they’re getting better and better at sounding like one.
