Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
Arctic Monkeys bring a garage rock blast to the indie sound of The Strokes (another band I can't seem to bring myself to enjoy) and wrap the whole thing up in a very British vibe. Seriously, not even The Beatles sounded this British.
While I love garage rock, and generally love British music, Arctic Monkeys just don't move my dial at all. I give this album points for its quality as well as the fact that it has the only Arctic Monkeys song I actually like ("When the Sun Goes Down"). It's a good album, but that doesn't mean I have to listen to it.
Baleeted? Yes. Because life is too short to waste on things you don't really like.
