Dance Little Liar is my favorite on Humbug but all the tracks you mention are great too. For me there isn't a weak track on that album though.

One of the crappest pieces of writing summing up one of the greatest lp’s of all time.

Arctic Monkeys Review: 'Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino'

Prob had one listen and thought he could pass that off as a review

And NZ herald talking out of their arse too

It's one thing to shit on this album, but another to take a swipe at the lyrical content of Zooropa. That site can kiss my balls.

Lol, he says Turner's lyrics are worse than those of Win Butler.

I don't know that I've ever seen that critique on Zooropa. Not liking the music is one thing but...ok?

Don’t worry. If I get my way with the publication you’ll be reading my riposte within a week.

If I can get paid to paraphrase lyrics from Some Days Are Better Than Others I’ll die a happy man.

Fuck, U2. Play that fucking song live.

The title track and Star Treatment are captivating me at the moment. And the segue from One Point Perspective into American Sports.

So pleased that they released this album under the AM banner, even though it is being pitched by some as a Turner solo album.

I must say, I'm still warming to the final third of the album, but the front third is absolutely stacked with gold.

I listened back to AM today. Hated it. Might actually be my least favourite album by them. Not any songs I want to go back to unlike TBHC. Still loving it. Never got that with AM

After a couple of weeks of listening, I just can't get into this album. It's inoffensive background music, but I am just not feeling it and definitely not something I'd go out of my way to listen to. Right now I put this at the bottom of their discography, with AM and Humbug as favorites. This could have been a great Alex Turner solo project that I could have ignored.
