....Missing some 5 star songs like Dancefloor, Ritz, Thats Where, You're Wrong, Laser Quest. Highlights are Brianstorm, Teddy Picker, D is For Dangerous, Do ME a Favour, Fluorescent Adolescent & Yellow Bricks. If you are new to the Monkeys buy Suck it and See, What Ever People Say I am Thats What I'm Not, but still a fanyastic album

  4 STARS!? Surely a mistake....

One word: BRILLIANT.

This album is what i compare every other album i get too..
No album i have ever owned (and iv got pretty much everything) has exceeded the standard of this..
This truly is a master peice to be marvelled at..
The lyrical ideas and musicmanship that goes into each on of these tracks really is something that deserves to be recognised..
I feel very sad that so many people have failed to let the tracks grow on them as 4 stars overall rating for this does not do it justice..
Some tracks, admittedly, took longer than others too sink in, but once they did, i got that same rush that i got from all the others..
Buy this album, listen and listen and listen and it will change the way you look at music and life..
I'v had it for 3 years.. I always listen to it and i cant get bored of any of the songs..
So do your self a favour and buy it..
Thanks for reading..

  Let It Grow

To begin with this album was a bit of a dissappointment to me, after whatever people say i am that's what i'm not, i thought that am belonged to that genre, but of course they grow as a band.
After listening it through again and again i fell absolutely in love with the album.

Arctic monkeys is a band in an everlasting evolution - and that is something i love. Am ftw!

This album is totally amazing. It took me a while to get into it but when i did i really did, i'm actually likeing it more than their first album at the mo. You gotta listen to the drum beat n the lyrics in the tune "Do me a favour i think that song is amazing. I LOVE every track on the whole album, it is a must hav and i dont think any1 should hav it missing from their CD rack. 5 out of 5 no question about it.

  Disapointingly Average

| | See all BongoBongo's reviews (25)

Having owned this album since it came out, I've tried many a time to get into Favourite Worse Nightmare having loved Arctic Monkeys previous offering, but everytime I listen to this, I can't help but feel let down. The only track that really stands out is Brainstorm, but that aside, there are no tracks that excite like I Bet That You Look Good On The Dance Floor, Mardy Bum and View From The Afternoon.

There are some decent tracks. Flourescent Adolescent and Room 505 are pretty decent, as is Teddy Picker, but overall, they all fail to live long in the memory. At the moment, the Arctics are the media darlings, they can do no wrong, and this was apparent in many of the media reviews of Favourite Worse Nightmare. But what happens when their bubble bursts? If they come up with another average album like this then their time in the spot like could be over, which would be a shame as I feel the Arctic Monkeys are a band with true potential. Lets just hope their next offering is better.

  A Great Album! Catchy... Fresh And Definitely Quirky!

A great album! Although needs time to get used too! Once you roughly know the melodies and perhaps some of the Lyrics.. you find yourself humming the tunes all day!! If you like the unique style to the Arctic Monkeys, then it is definitely a must have! Songs like " Florescent Adolescent", "Old Yellow Bricks" and "Teddy Picker" are amazing!! 5 out of 5!! Finally a band that can sustain quality!
