What's incredible to me about the Arctic Monkey's, is their ability to impress. They wowed us with their debut, the witty songs with a classic British rock sound that made them an instant classic. With their follow up two years later, they brought us back the music we love, but with a more mature tone noticed in the songwriting and composition as well. And for last year's Humbug, they came back swinging with a darker, funkier sound, brought to them by new producer Josh Homme (frontman of Queens of the Stone Age and My Crooked Vulture), and most likely a large amount of acid. Their wasting no time, as they are already going back to working on a fourth album between tours. Today though, we revisit the favorite of Fake Tales of San Francisco, where the boys call out all the posers and phonies. Greatness.
