Arctic Monkeys return with their triumphant fifth album. AM was produced by James Ford and co-produced by Ross Orton. Josh Homme, Pete Thomas and Bill Ryder-Jones all make guest appearances on - as do the words of John Cooper Clarke, on the track I Wanna Be Yours. Stinging riffs, bottle-rocket solos and sharp melodies combine with an ear for a groove that just as readily manifests itself in a motown swing (Snap Out of it) or glam strut (I Want it all) as in the creeping G-funk of Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?. Not for the first time they sound like the best band the UK has to offer.
