The Arctic Monkey's second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare.
I had heard "Brianstorm" and "Teddy Picker" on the radio before buying this album, and I was pleased to say that I found some of the other tracks even better!
"Flouresant Adolescant" is lyrical genius, and the bass line is inspired, even if the rest of the music from the track isn't that great.
"Old Yellow Bricks" is possibly my favourite song from the album musically.
It stays true to the Indie genre but incorporates a dance... (read more)

I've been disappointed by this album. The Arctic's first album is one of my favourites ever but Favourite Worst Nightmare is has a different and quite depressing vibe which takes the fun out it for me.
Only 'Fluorescent Adolescent' reminds me of the cheeky, upbeat sound of the majority of 'Whatever People Say..." and the remainder of the album is much less accessible and I'd be really surprised if this album spawns more than one hit single.

When I heard that the Arctic Monkeys were releasing My Favourite Worst Nightmare, I was beside myself as the first time I ever heard I bet you look good on the Dancefloor; I was paralyzed by the magic of these monkeys and bought their first album. This second album is very different, but the new style is paralyzing, it makes you want to listen to it again, and again, and again...
