Having listened to this album once through i have to say that for previous arctic monkeys fans this will take a few listens to, to realise what change has taken place.
The fast paced excitment of their previous 2 albums has somewhat gone but has been replaced by a new, unique sound which is quite pleasant to listen to.
The album does still show some buzz in a few of their songs which are my fav's so far:
Tru fans will appreciate the change which has taken place and should therefore buy the album. The Arctic Monkeys have not lost it, they've been brave and re-styled their music to show they are not limited to change.
