While this sophomore release is unmistakably Arctic Monkeys, everything on Favourite Worst Nightmare is a little more muscular and aggressive. Each song is embedded with revelatory moments, as if some sort of critical mass is achieved through skillful songcraft and sharp arrangements until an explosive release of energy or emotion is inevitable.

Reviews:

The album that got heaps and heaps of blog hype, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I Am Not, was quickly followed by a blatant cash-in EP called Who the F*** Are Arctic Monkeys? Now the first single off this eagerly-and-then-some awaited sophomore effort is "Brianstorm"; not "brain," kids'""Brian." Man, at least Fall Out Boy's stupid puns sort of make sense. We think Arctic Monkeys are just screwing with us all, which is not good since everybody who's ga-ga for this band is almost 30 and these kids are barely of drinking age in the States. Which is good in that they're too meta- to take the drooling accolades seriously and are probably just concerned with making tasty hooks. We like to dance, and if anything here is remotely as infectious as "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor," um, we will dance. So there.
