CRITIC REVIEWS

90
No Ripcord

The Arctic Monkeys of 2011 have produced, probably by a significant margin, the best British Rock 'n' Roll album you will hear this year.

85
Beats Per Minute

Suck It And See is an almost seamless step forward, reaffirming the notion that the band’s shelf life is probably much longer than initially estimated.

80
musicOMH

This is another intriguing evolution for one of the country's great bands, and a shot in the arm for Britain's rather moribund 'indie guitar' scene.

80
Consequence of Sound

Suck it and See is a thorough success imbued with the very same spirit, reflecting the boys’ widely expanded palette while successfully working in everything they did so well in their yester-album.

80
PopMatters

Alex Turner and his bandmates are clearly expanding their abilities and getting better at focusing their fire with every release.

drab, boring, dull, uninteresting, lifeless etc.

Suck It And See is an album that really separated AM from the rest of their contemporaries. Their ability to churn out punky tunes, along with slow, psych/blues-tinged tracks makes for a marvelous album.

Everything from the album art to the album titled pisses me off here. Some nice songs here and there, but this is just a collection of bland, revivalist tracks.

Favourite tracks: She's Thunderstorms, Reckless Serenade, Piledriver Waltz
