Albums of 2009: 4 – Arctic Monkeys – Humbug

28 Dec

Challenging, sleazy, moody and dark third record from them northern monkeys. Produced by Josh Homme, you can hear his stamp on all songs on this record. The sounds, the feel, the mood. All of it. Add that touch to Alex Turner’s highly underrated songwriting, superb musicianship and you’ve got a perfect record.

Casual fans may be left confused by it’s lack of ‘hits’ but I think it’s easily the best record they’ve made so far.

Hail the monkeys!
