Yeah, I really like this. Nu-Disco is always a pretty great genre, but the absolutely stellar production (unfortunately from a notorious piece of shit) really makes this an enjoyable listen. The album is effectively its title; futuristic sounding pop firmly rooted in its 80's inspirations that it wears so heavily on its sleave, such as the INXS sample used on Break My Heart.

This is probably the harshest Arctic Monkeys got before moving towards different sounds following this, and I'm honestly sad we didn't get more of this. This album sounds like smoking a blunt whilst ... read more

Holy shit, what an album. This is pretty much essential listening for indie/alt rock fans, and if you live in Northern England, the chances are, you've already heard this dozens of times. Every single song sounds different here; they sound unique, they stand out, and they practically all had the capability to be singles. Sure, only a few tracks are really doing anything *different* here, but the angry, joke-like tales of a night out and the hangover afterwards just wouldn't sound this good if ... read more

Expect my rating distribution to be skewed to fuck as I retro-actively add a lot of old reviews here; it should balance out as I listen to more new stuff instead of just adding old favourites

music is good. =]

I rate albums based on how much "filler" I see in them; the number of skips a track has, the worse it is.
