EDITORS’ NOTES

On their fifth album, Arctic Monkeys continue their evolution by giving their punchy rock a big dose of groove. AM is built on big, clean beats that go all-out funky, even amid the Sabbath-like heavy stomp of "Arabella" and the snaking riffs of "R U Mine?" and "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?" Regular collaborator Josh Homme is back to add a little sleaze and soul to the R&B-swinging "One For the Road" and the jaunty, falsetto-laced "Knee Socks".
