Alex Turner on the Arctic Monkeys second Album

Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys fame has been talking about his band's new record, which is due out this Spring.
Quoted from Drowned In Sound:
"The songs are very different from last time. For the first album we locked ourselves away in the middle of nowhere, whereas this time we've been out in the Smoke, going out and stuff," said Turner, who has been rather conspicuous on the London club scene of late. "I think that's maybe reflected in the songs a little bit. "

It seems like we are in for a treat of a different kind than before. Lets hope that energy, rhythm and tunes are still to central to the Monkeys output.

Arctic Monkeys Top Of List

In Metadish's review of the year he puts the Arctic Monkeys album top for music in 2006:

"1) Arctic Monkeys- Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
I still can't believe this album didn't blow up huge here in the states. It is by far the catchiest neo-punk (not post-punk as some critics wrongly label it) I've ever heard. If you avoided the Arctic Monkeys due to all the slightly ridiculous hype, go back and give them a listen now."

Another wise comment!
