Arctic Monkeys: AM. Review Sketch

year: 2013 

tones of: the black keys, red hot chili peppers, the beatles, the strokes, coldplay, the white stripes

genre samples: blues, rock n roll, soul, psychedelic rock, punk, lo-fi rock, garage rock

music: marching, bombastic, busy, drumming, big, winding, jangling, cruising, lazy, swirling, mellow 

favs: do you wanna know?, r u mine?, one for the road, arabella, no. 1 party anthem, why'd you only call me when you're high?, knee socks

nb: if you're anything like me, it's been a minute since you've really liked a rock album so give this a couple of spins. feels like a maturation of that early 2000s "post-punk/garage rock revival".

score: 8/10 (and the first half of this is just really on point)
