Arctic Monkeys - Whatever people say I am, That's what I'm not.

     Being brutally honest, I was not expecting much from this album just because i'm fairly ignorant on the Arctic Monkeys ( Or I was at least ), what a pleasant surprise!  I was expecting something very plain and generic, sure it's a little poppy but it's not bad pop by any means.  I believe my favorite song out of the album has to be When the Sun Goes Down, although this was a very hard choice to make. I was picking a favorite then changing after each track changed! Being my first experience with the Arctic Monkeys, I highly recommend this album to anyone; and fans of rock, pop, or indie will enjoy this. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this album.

  1. Good to see you liked it. I can totally relate to what you said about it, although I suppose When The Sun Goes Down isn't my favourite song off of this album.
