Album Review: The British are coming, The British are coming. I say bring them on. The UK has been trying to break a band here in the US since the Beatles. Most of the time the next big thing over there is the next disc to hit the cutout bins here. The Arctic Monkeys could break this trend. This album is more infectious with every listen. I find myself humming to songs long after the music has ended. I even have more respect for this band because they built their fan base by releasing mp3s on the net. The record labels called them fools but turned out that they sold a crap load of records, made a SNL appearance and even duped Americans to buy in.
Key Tracks: “I Bet You Good On The Dance Floor” / “Dancing Shoes” / “Perhaps Vampires…”
