containing thirteen newly recorded tracks, some of which have never been heard before anywhere, even amongst the diehard fans trading demos and versions on the internet, this is a remarkable modern british debut. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not is the debut studio album by English rock band Arctic Monkeys, released on 23 January 2006 by Domino Recording Company. The guitar playing, drumming and vocals completely embody that angst which so many teenagers go through. For me, it has a lot of memories attached to it so I'll always think of it as their best for me, but it captures a period of British music where things felt original and unique which is sorely lacking these days.

I love this album for the guitar runs, especially on the B side, and the guitars in particular are extremely clear and isolated. All four members of the Arctic Monkeys were a little bit shy of their tenth birthday at the time, a bit young to be sure, but old enough to have Oasis be their first favorite band.

the boys may share a love of the smiths, the clash and the jam, but in no way were the monkeys ready to simply regurgitate the well-trodden brit-rock path.

I understand the backlash against this band (and so does the band, if one listens to their new EP), as they have seen an unfair amount of hype and hyperbole. The all time classic debut album from the anthemic indie-rockers Arctic Monkeys, originally released in 2006 to hyper acclaim and winning a number of awards including a Brit, a Mercury and a Grammy nomination. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. This album takes everything that's good about the current crop of British bands (stop-start guitars, great hooks, catchy and danceable bass lines, great lyrics) and then turns it up to 11, so to speak.The only thing I have against this album is that I don't think of it as quintessential vinyl material- there isn't a great deal of difference in the vinyl and the digital versions.
