Arctic Monkeys | Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
Like Albert Finney's Saturday Night and Sunday Morning factory worker whose words name it, the Arctic Monkeys' over-hyped debut LP is equal parts ale-soaked smart-arse and disenchanted romantic. Expect saloon bar witticism ("Fake Tales of San Francisco" where the "weekend rockstars are in the toilet practicing their lines"), flailing nihilism ("I Bet That You Look Good On the Dance Floor") and bitter rumination ("When the Sun Goes Down"). Smart, spunky, spiky. - Jamie D
