Arctic Monkeys: Favourite Worst Nightmare
Buy! - (Domino)
This young band’s excellent debut album vaulted them to the top of the current British rock heap, and they follow it up with this remarkably confident set that brings a heavier rock crunch and an even tighter rhythm section to another impressive batch of colorful, hook-filled songs. Alex Turner is fast turning into one of rock’s great lyricists, and while Favourite Worst Nightmare has its share of his snarky takes on nightlife and its inhabitants, he also offers up some surprisingly tender songs that give the new album some welcome emotional depth. Not even a hint of a sophomore slump here. 4/20/2007 - Don Yates
