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.

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.


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.

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.


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

Frankly, being average among a hugely talented population does not diminish your talent. Average among the exceptional is still exceptional!
My suggestion: If you're like me, and you dig Brit swagger and indie rock, then ... read more
