Arctic Monkeys - Arabella

Feels Like: Zeppelin trying to make an R. Kelly record

The more I listen to Arctic Monkeys' AM, the more I think it's the heaviest rock album released in years. Don't let the tempos fool you, this is some heavy shit. It's a headphone record, and if you haven't revisited it since its release, I highly recommend taking it for a second spin. It's hard to let go of the Arctic Monkeys of their debut, but now that their transformation is complete, the new, heavier Arctic Monkeys give their bratty former selves a run for their money.
