This week's Counterbalance got some interstellar-gator skin boots and a helter skelter 'round her little finger and I ride it endlessly. Take a dip in the Arctic Monkeys' daydreams with their latest release.
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.
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.
