Arctic Monkeys - AM
May 5, 2017
NR
NME are you kidding me, best album of the last decade? What is this, a joke? Let's be real folks, if we're going to evaluate an album like this seriously, then we need to consider this poppy indie rock album in the light that it truly deserves.

AM by Arctic Monkeys is the greatest album of ALL TIME. This is the unquestionable truth. All the years of rock music, from The Beatles to Boston to The Cure to Nirvana to Linkin Park have all been building up to this release. Every riff, every throat shredding vocal, every heartbroken lyric has finally reached its conclusion.

'Do I Wanna Know' was clearly the last song written for this album, in which Alex Turner reminisces about what music will become after he releases this album. He doesn't want to let music as a whole disappear into the past. He might want to return to it, but it will never feel the same.

'R U Mine' is a perfectly complementary track to the previous one. In this, Alex struggles to accept what he's created. He feels a distance from his work, like it came out of thin air, and it would be impossible for someone like him to make music this extraordinary.

I could go on about each track, but in short, Alex's creation is a reflection of the present. It's about him accepting that music as a whole is finally over, and he's the one who managed to put an end to it. The sound waves on AM's cover are the very last, and no music will ever exist again. Thanks, Arctic Monkeys.
