It was bound to happen. Arctic Monkeys album leaked earlier this week and as is the done thing these days it was immediately streamed in decent quality for our full enjoyment. We'd heard more than a fair share of tracks from the release already. The full LP features some slow ballads and super funky beats provided by Matt Helders, and all in all the album seems to deliver a package of well made modern rock. I've been spinning it all week and so far "Arabella" and "Knee Socks" are standing out. Also, how damn good does "R U Mine?" sound 18 months after it was first released? To listen yourself just jump on over to iTunes.
AM is officially released next week (Sep. 9th) via Domino.
