    From a band with so much talent they produce something of low quality. They appear to be milking their name knowing people will pick the album up blindly. I'm just saying listen to the (bad) music first before you make your mind up on buying it.

    If that score at the top of this review seems unfriendly, it's not because they've grown boring or predictable; it's just another step in an ongoing process.

    While the design is a bit different, the result is still another awesome album to add to Arctic Monkeys' arsenal.

    On its fourth LP, Arctic Monkeys combines its clever, tongue-in-cheek wordplay with a wider variety of sounds than it ever used on its other releases.
