No, it’s actually Matt aka The Falsetto Falcon (AMUS, 2012)
Solid point. Sometimes I forget to realize that it’s been almost a year since SIAS was released given their constant touring.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely excited for Album V. But if they’re recording/working on it this summer, there’s a possibility of a mid/late-2013 release. Feels close, given that they’ve been touring constantly and have been releasing material upon material lately.
What do you think?
Dig deep. Remember, remember the sound of Jamie’s voice… and you’ll have your answer.
Hmm… I think R U Mine is meaningful, what with the lyrics— I go crazy cause here isn’t where I want to be / satisfaction feels like a distant memory. That’s deep, even emotional, but the depth was hidden by the ‘hardness’ of the music I guess so I get what they’re saying—by emotional or meaningful they meant soft, slow. Not always the case, really.
But yeah, I believe they’d still have ballads. They’ve always had them anyway. And frankly, they better. It would be suffocating if it’ll be heavy all throughout.
Not this tour, at least not so far. When The Sun Goes Down got booted off at last night’s set too. They’re mixing it up, which I’d like to take as a good thing.
We interrupt the You And I coverage with this bit: this album is six years old today.
Time flies. I can’t recall the day I finally held this record in my hands but it soundtracked one of the best fan moments ever—our High Green pilgrimage last June; a favorite memory I have with this bugger.
Anyway, say happy birthday by stating your favorite track from this album below. It’s going to be tough but pick just one. Mmkay?
Guys, let’s help a new fan out. I need your help on this because I’ll be biased and say FWN so I’d much rather we vote on it. Majority wins.
Edit: My justification for FWN (for those anons asking) is that it’s a good meeting ground for the ruckus of WPSIA and the darkness of Humbug. Kind of like an introduction to both. But anyway, as much as you think this is a question with an obvious answer, I’m still going to ask your opinion…
Which Arctic Monkeys album would you suggest a new fan to start with?
I love you because you love Richard Ayoade and because you flipped out about him being friends with Alex. It was my exact same reaction.
