The Arctic Monkeys released their fourth album this year, Suck It and See. It’s a good album, but I don’t think it’s as good as their older stuff. The songs off their first three albums still occupy my top ten list for the band:

2. Fake Tale of San Francisco (Whatever People Say I Am)
1. I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor (Whatever People Say I Am)
You can watch the video for I Bet You Look Good on The Dancefloor via Youtube. According to Wikipedia, the video was shot using TV cameras from the 1970’s in order to give the music video an aged effect.
If you are a fan of the band, or even if you’re not, there’s a good article from New City Music on why they may be the world’s best band. You can read it on the New City Music website.

Three Best Songs On Arctic Monkeys’ “Suck It And See” by Michael Verity
“Arctic Monkeys don’t do the “sha-la-la, bingle, bangle, jingle, jangle” thing all that well (or, as my teenager said, “they sound likeU2 before they’ve had their morning coffee”). But when you shave away the breathy shimmering stylistic nonsense – effective though it might be putting young girls in the front rows – there’s some rock and roll to be found on their new disc, Suck It and See.”
