Very regular LP. It doesn’t susrprise, because that’s one of the peculiarities of Monkeys’ albums. No excesses, no surfeits, but definitely no downfalls in each and every part of the album.
Arctic Monkeys follow his own footsteps, altough a little more mild. Still installed on indie-rock, but with touches of country and pop-rock. Listenable!!!
