Just for some context, headliners in 97: Orbital, Devo, The Prodigy, The Orb, Tool, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Tricky, Korn, James, Julian Marley and Damian Marley, G. Love & Special Sauce and the Uprising Band, Failure, The Sunshine
Happy to see that Arctic Monkeys have finally achieved near festival headliner status in the states, but damn this is a safe/corporate lineup.
Maybe I’m crazy, but I really like this.
I heard it live and was really excited by some of the songs, but then I went home and listened to the endlessly looped and tinny sounding recordings and was disappointed all over again. “Bloom” and a few others have potential, but there are like three tracks on there that are just not exciting (and that’s out of 8 – and one of those is “Feral”).
Yup, and I think the singles he was involved more heavily with were excellent.
Great piece. After reading about that run, you just feel like the man is due to make a bad album, but I’ve spent every single album wondering, “How the hell is he going to follow this?” and he never disappoints.
Real talk right here.
Pretty freaking good.
This is actually pretty cool of them.
