Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know? (2013)


Arctic Monkeys again

For a while there, I had assumed that Josh Homme and his Stone Age Queens had sucked some life out of the Arctic Monkeys, but then this. ‘Do I Wanna Know? is from their fifth studio album AM. With the swagger of The Black Keys and the high and heavy bar set by the QOTSA, the song kicks off with a lizard-like riff that just oozes confidence. Channelling the lyricism of John Lennon, Mr Turner doesn’t disappoint with: “I’ve dreamt about you nearly every night this week\How many secrets can you keep?\Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow\And I play it on repeat.” It kicks of an album that the NME thinks might be the greatest record of the last decade. Have a great weekend.

    It is good, not much doubt about that,but is being annihilated by certain rock radio station that plays it seemingly hourly. When in a single room for hours at a time decorating, variety is the key to sanity. However i now have a few albums for the Christmas list.
