About this deal

hence the razor-sharp lyricism that fuels songs like a certain romance, a witty observation of small-town life where theres only music so that theres new ringtones and where going out could sometimes mean having a pool cue wrapped around your head. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not is the debut studio album by English rock band Arctic Monkeys, released on 23 January 2006 by Domino Recording Company. For me, it has a lot of memories attached to it so I'll always think of it as their best for me, but it captures a period of British music where things felt original and unique which is sorely lacking these days.

and finally the album closer, a Certain Romance with its opening drum and guitar attack before settling into a perfect UK retro-rock dance groove with a totally different sound, and great lyrics condemning the vapidness and bad behavior of today's youth even as the singer admits he has friends who are the same. The debut Arctic Monkeys album is, as we all know, one of the finest debut statements in rock history. The only thing I have against this album is that I don't think of it as quintessential vinyl material- there isn't a great deal of difference in the vinyl and the digital versions.

The album became the UK's fastest selling debut album, selling more than 360,000 copies in its first week in 2006. Don't compare it to the best bands of all time, compare it to the current crop of what's out there - these guys absolutely blow away Hard-Fi, the Rakes, the Editors, Maximo Park, We Are Scientists, Kaiser Chiefs, etc etc. Within the course of a year, the band rose from the ranks of an Internet phenomenon to the biggest band in the U. THAT is what makes this album so impressive to me - the sum of its parts is stronger than any album I've heard in a long time.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Yeah, is a surreal, funky, profane, and perversely joyous album, overflowing with casual eclecticism and giddy humour. This album could be a blueprint for an imagined future; a reminiscence of the past; or your existence now.
