This is my favorite AM album.

Brooding and seductive with tantalizing bass-lines, hypnotic guitars and mysterious singing from Alex Turner.

I've been obsessed with this album lately and I'd like to retract my previous comment that I preferred AM - wrong ! 'Humbug' kicks it's butt and is the album that allowed AM to be made. I had sadly under rated this album for years , again my bad

So many killer tracks here: "Potion Approaching" , "Dangerous Animals" , "My Propeller" , "Pretty Visitors" .I love albums with swagger and attitude and Humbug delivers in spades

Simply outstanding

This is my least favorite album by them, It felt a bit leaking, and It didn't have that same feel as their previous albums did. Still It has it's moments like "Secret Door" that reminds us that this band is still the same one from "505".

Arctic Monkey are amazing and this album definitely isn't an exception. It's much slower and seductive than their previous 2 albums, especially songs like 'Crying Lightning' and 'Dangerous Animals'. 'Cornerstone' is also amazing and emotional. I love the fast delivery in the bridge of 'Pretty Visitors' too, definitely reminiscent of their early work.

I believe this is the most intelligent and artistic album the Arctic Monkeys have created. Both lyrically and instrumentally. This is a phenomenal album.

Un disco che mi è abbastanza indifferente con l'unica eccezione dell'iniziale "My propeller".

From Fritz
A well producted album.
The insane drums and the melancholic vocals are the highlights.

It’s the Arctic Monkeys so naturally it’s good. Humbug has all trimmings of an AMs album- great lyrics, great guitar hooks and that trade mark cool. For me I much prefer AM but this one is definitely worth checking out

With time, this has become their finest work. Songs like My Propeller and Secret Door have become some of their greatest songs. A criminally underrated album.

Best Tracks: My Propeller, Crying Lightning, Secret Door, Pretty Visitors
