All four members of the Arctic Monkeys were a little bit shy of their tenth birthday at the time, a bit young to be sure, but old enough to have Oasis be their first favorite band. The first album from Sheffield-based rockers, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not was the fastest selling debut album in UK chart history. stars out of 5 -- "Fashion and hype be damned -- this is thrilling, incontrovertible evidence of a major new talent in our midst.

If you want to check the colour of the record before you purchase, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.The guitar playing, drumming and vocals completely embody that angst which so many teenagers go through. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.

Within the course of a year, the band rose from the ranks of an Internet phenomenon to the biggest band in the U.Released in 2006, the Arctic Monkeys' debut album was fairly typical of the 'good' (in my opinion) music that was in the charts at the time. I could hear in their sound both the Libertines and Franz Ferdinand, bands which were by then well established. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The all time classic debut album from the anthemic indie-rockers Arctic Monkeys, originally released in 2006 to hyper acclaim and winning a number of awards including a Brit, a Mercury and a Grammy nomination.Let me get this off my chest first: The Arctic Monkeys share exactly two common traits with The Beatles and Oasis - They're all British, and they're all rock bands. Critics hugely praised the album for its depiction of youth British Culture and for resurging British indie music that had waned after the 1990s.

You can hear The Kinks, you can sense The Smiths and a love of the 60s but most of all you can hear The Arctic Monkeys. It is however, an absolute stonker of an album and I highly recommend that if you haven't heard it yet, that you go and do so! What I like the most is that you can train your ear to listen to any of the parts of this band - the drumming is solid (far more so than say, Franz Ferdinand), each song is driven by terrific guitars and bass that will stay in your head as long as the lyrics will. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.For me, it has a lot of memories attached to it so I'll always think of it as their best for me, but it captures a period of British music where things felt original and unique which is sorely lacking these days. Released in 2006, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not is the debut album by English indie rock band Arctic Monkeys. The album became the UK's fastest selling debut album, selling more than 360,000 copies in its first week in 2006. Every song is, at worst, above average, while most could make equal claim to single of the year to this point. The album features the singles 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor' and 'When the Sun Goes Down'.
