I’ve listened to two Arctic Monkeys albums prior to this and despite what everyone else seems to think, I was left underwhelmed. Needless to say I went into this with very low expectations… and I still didn’t like it.
“R U Mine?”, “No. 1 Party Anthem” and “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High” seem more like running gags with the band than actual songs. Maybe there’s something I’m just missing here, but this in no way appeals to me.
