Arctic Monkeys - Suck It and See

I'll admit it, it's been a quick minute since I've caught up with the Arctic Monkeys. At least since that "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" bit was playing all over the damn place. I'll give them this, the buzz they create is almost immeasurable. I managed to find a couple places to preview a bit of this new album they released this week, Suck It and See (love the album title, btw, guys). What to say, what to say...the music iteself is full gritty, grabby rock yum. Their use of guitars is so freakin' fabu. The snarky overtone of lyrical content ("Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair") is admirable. I like a band that just says it. Ya know, let's not sugar coat stuff. The world is a happier place when we just tell it like it is. So, my verdict is a thumbs-up!

Grab the album at their online store.
