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

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.

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.

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.

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

Suck It and See, the Arctics' fourth and most rewarding album so far, is not music to blog to.

By the impeccably high standards they've set so far it ranks as a good rather than great album.

Arctic Monkeys' happiest album has some solid tracks. Some are forgettable but there are a few that are pretty good. Lyrics are pretty good as well.

Best tracks: She's Thunderstorms, Library Pictures, Piledriver Waltz
