Weakest AMs album by far in my opinion. It is still not bad, but compared to the rest of their albums it isn't there. 6/10.

This was my first Arctic Monkeys album. It's filled with great songs, and catchy tunes. "Do I Wanna Know," might be my favorite Arctic Monkeys song. Now that I've listened to some of the band's earlier albums, I don't think it's quite as strong, but this is still an excellent album that is always an enjoyable listen.

There’s quite a lot of tracks here that I listen to by themselves and just can’t enjoy, but when I hear em in the context of the album I get sucked in (apart from I Want It All). It’s an album with a great aesthetic, but still not a patch on their first two albums.

This is what modern rock should sound like. Indebted to the past, looking to the future. One of my personal favorites since the Millennium.

This is a good album, I think it is the furthest sounding album from the original three records. Still good, and it testifies on behalf of their sustaining power. looking forward to their next album!

Honestly, it's not a bad album by any means but the amount of acclaim this received from British press and audiences in 2013 should honestly have been poured on Primal Scream's superior rock album "More Light" instead. It's baffling that this is above Kanye's "Yeezus" or many other 2013 albums on this site.

I never got into early Arctic Monkeys but happened to be listening to radio when these songs came out. I love it, a lot. Can understand if you got into the early stuff, how much of "sell out" this seems. But for the new listeners, listening to the witty lyrics to great tunes is a real treat.

It's honestly ridiculous that this is higher than RAM for best albums of 2013.

I really want to like this more than I do - or as much as the standout tracks, but it's seems to be pretty monotonous when it comes to the songs that are not the hits.

That said there're 3-4 tracks on here that are real bangers I just wish this thing had more consistency. They're a band that when the song comes on the radio or is playing in a public space people always say "oh Arctic Monkeys, they're really great!" and I always agree - but I just get bored listening to their albums.
