arctic monkeys are just so average it's depressing. and i can't stand the way nme are hyping them, calling them the new libertines and such. they're just another average indie band, nothing special. i can't understand all the fuss about them...it's just hype.

I'm not really fussed. Which is a shame because they're playing a gig in my city soon (Coventry) and we almost never get (decent) concerts. Although this has started to change in the past year...

I really like what I've heard

I think Scummy is great it's a fun song with smart lyrics and good humour

A certain Romance is pretty good too

Exactly

This review is utterly ridiculous:

http://www.nme.com/reviews/arctic-monkeys/7837

10/10?? I don't think so!


I particularly like this quote from on of the "user reviews" though:

"Fuck you NME - fuck you for making me hate a musical genre that I once loved. If musical style has receded to find its inspiration in the past, I worry for its future."

Arctic Monkeys are a great band. lyrically fantastic and good tunes.

it's no surprise that there's this much hype around them. To call them average is ridiculous. They're not pushing any musical boundries but the lyrics and what the songs are about really speak to my generation more than any other band around.

Heard a few of their songs before.
After all the hype I've heard about them, I was extremely dissapointed, judging on what I've heard so far I have to say I think they are very average.
I hope they are capable of much, much better than the stuff what I've heard from them so far, because (sadly) the hype-machine is in full spin so they it looks like they are going to be big here whether we like it or not.

apparently their debut album is going to be the fastest selling since Definitely Maybe...
