    I was very suprised to not find a thread on this band.

    Discuss anything and everything about the Arctic Monkeys here.

    Yeah, I was surprised too, but I was too lazy to make my own thread.

    But anyway, I think they're pretty damn awesome.

    What kind of music do they play? What song should I d/l if I want to hear a good one?

    well i believe the single is "I bet you look good on the dance floor" so that would be a good bet.

    Hahahaha. I don't know, but for some reason, I find this thread hilarious.

    Anyway, I got the album a few weeks ago from a friend. It's alright. A bit too pop-y, but then again, I like some pop crap stuff. The guitar work and vocals aren't that impressive. I guess I kinda like Fake Tales of San Francisco and When the Sun Goes Down. But whenever I hear When the Sun Goes Down, I hear my friend trying to play it on his guitar. He isn't the most gifted vocalist. Hehe.

    Is the album worth buying?! What kind of music is it exactly !? Not rap? What genre !?

    It's like a pop/alternative thing. You'll like this band if you like stuff like Franz Ferdinand, The Subways, The Strokes, and Black Sabbath. Just kidding.

    They sound good live, but they dont have much stage presence, but I cant really expect to see that from a band with only one cd out so far.

    Also I didnt know this, but their Album has become the Fastest Selling Debut Album Ever.

    I know what you're saying. Their live performances are as good as their recordings, but they can't give the extra push over the cliff that some other bands can give. They need to turn it up to 11.

    Im sure by the end of their current tour or their second tour they will go up to 11.

    I love "This is spinal Tap"

    They are a great band. Favorite song is probably 'Dancng Shoes'.

    I liked them before they released their first single but I think the media have over hyped them almost to the point where they won't be able to sustain themselves.

    My favourite songs are Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweetharts and Curtains Close I'm not sure if those songs are even on the album though.

    They also recorded a great cover of Girls Aloud Love Machine

    I'm curious to see if they are more than a one cd wonder. Which I hope they are not.

    A bit overhyped? I'vr read in several places that their gonna be the next big thing, one of the new top 100 classic Cd's (then again what do the people and Rolling Stone know about music) And every radio stataion is claiming they played them first. And i hate that, cause its abou the music...

    I did pick up their Cd last week, it aint bad, or maybe it just hasent grown on me...anyways, i hope they dont vanish after 1 Cd cause of all the media coverage
