Favourite Worst Nightmare
Warner Bros / Wea
2013 reissue of the vinyl LP. Gatefold sleeve. This is a fresh pressing of the 2007 sophomore album from the uber-successful British band. While this sophomore release is unmistakably Arctic Monkeys, everything's a little more muscular and aggressive. Each song is embedded with revelatory moments, as if some sort of critical mass is achieved through skillful song craft and sharp arrangements until an explosive release of energy or emotion is inevitable. The Arctic Monkeys have exceeded expectations with this record. Domino.
