Review: Arctic Monkeys’ Suck It and See


TRACK 8

“Reckless Serenade”

from Arctic Monkeys’ Suck It and See (Domino)

Liner notes: Rebounding from Humbug, their overly heavy third outing, the British quartet corrects course with a brighter sound that emphasizes Alex Turner’s gritty-yet-tender voice.

Behind the music: An old-school guitar band for the modern age, Arctic Monkeys built a loyal audience before they landed a record deal by releasing their music free online. Their subsequent 2006 album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, became the fastest-selling debut in UK history.
