You could probably look that reference up for yourself and it would take no longer than a minute or two.

I get it even less after googling it, actually.

I've never heard an arctic monkeys song. Or maybe I heard one. I don't remember it though, so it's the same thing.

I like their first couple albums. The last few, not so much.

Arctic Monkeys deliver what is their most instantly enjoyable record in a long time. The band has been through several different phases of varying success. Starting with their humble punk/garage rock beginnings of their first two albums, through the dark and heavy production of Humbug, to the more light-hearted Suck It and See, they have performed pretty much all the splinter groups of the rock genre. On AM, the band takes on a simpler sound, mostly consisting of basic hip-hop beats and guitar riffs. Although more simplistic than their previous releases, that in no way takes away from the overall experience. In fact, songs like the Black Keys-esque Do I Wanna Know? and Why'd You Always Call Me When You're High?, both incredibly simple in structure, prove to be the 'classic singles' of the album. The real winners, however, are the 1-2-3 punch of No. 1 Party Anthem, Mad Sounds, and Fireside, three tunes prominently featuring piano/keyboards that completely change up the whole tone of the album. The first drips of melancholy like an Elton John ballad, the second sounds like a beautiful and optimistic Lou Reed/T. Rex song, and the third is an almost paranoid throwback to the late 60's/early 70's. That being said, AM is truly an album that wears it's influences on it's sleeve, sometimes to a fault. Despite the occasional cheesy lyrics and it's few missteps (One For the Road and I Want It All) Arctic Monkeys' new album is certain to go down as a favorite for some and a welcome return to form from the shaky Suck It and See.

It would delight me immensely if he never even listened to these albums

The Arctic Monkeys are everything that's wrong with music.
