Suck It and See

Suck It and See

After the tricksy, black-skied songcraft of Humbug, Arctic Monkeys' fourth album feels, on the whole, like a crisp, clear shaft of sunlight. There are bursts of jangly indie (“The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala,” “Suck It and See”), country-rock-scented slow numbers (“Love Is a Laserquest”) and playfully thrashy singalongs (“Don’t Sit Down…,” drummer Matt Helders’ debut lead vocal on “Brick by Brick”). Capped off by the soaring nostalgia of “That’s Where You’re Wrong,” Suck It and See finds the Sheffield band rediscovering the pure joy of shimmering, melodious rock ‘n’ roll.
