Looking at the tracklist and at Alex Turner's new goatee, I predict Arctic Monkey's album is going to underperform compared to AM.

Overall probably but I think it may best AM's sales in the UK. They're coming back from their first hiatus and everyone (including myself) is hungry for new material.

Not everyone likes guided by Voices and that is ok...

But they do put on one of the best rock shows around...I think anyone would be hard pressed to say otherwise

Arctic Monkeys AM sounds too much like the black keys....I did not always feel this way...when it came out I thought it was awesome ..I think they wanted to break into the US market and I canít blame them...will be interesting to see how this new one is

Their first is one of my favorites of all time....

It's a good thing most of their songs are only two minutes long then....

I'm with you though - I do not share the GBV love that most of my friends have.  And will NEVER see them live again.

+1 for not really caring for GBV.  just don't do much for me.

i saw them in L.A. at the Wiltern a while back.  i spent the entire show starring at the (beautiful) ceiling, and left after less than an hour.

I *love* that song about Black Girls. The rest of their catalog is tolerable at best.

I prefer Doug Gillard in Nada Surf and Bobby Bare Jr in Bobby Bare Jr.

I've listened to them sparingly, primarily because their discography is just too large to dive in for a newb. Who wants to shed some light on where to begin?

I have asked that very same question on this forum, long long ago, but damned if I can find it now!
