Arctic Monkeys - 2013
I appreciate the effort from Alex Turner and co., but this is embarrassing. After two stone-cold indie rock classics to start their career (Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, Favorite Worst Nightmare), the Monkeys have followed up with yet another disappointment. They've sacrificed the pure aggression of their almost punk-rock roots in favour of pop and glam rock. That may work for some bands, but the Monkeys were really, really good at what they used to do, and really, really awful at what they've decided to do now. It's boring, shallow while trying to be deep, and unappealing. One of the worst albums to come out in 2013. Favorite songs:R U Mine? Least favourite tracks: the rest Most overrated track: Do I Wanna Know Most underrated track: R U Mine?
