Arctic Monkeys 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not'

With the release of the new album, I thought I'd start a series of rates of the Monkeys' previous albums, starting with the first one.

All the tracks are listed below.
All tracks are to be rated between 0 and 10. You can give one 11, one -1 (although there is no compulsion to do so) and I will also allow half (.5) scores as well.

xx The View From the Afternoon
xx I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor
xx Fake Tales of San Francisco
xx Dancing Shoes
xx You Probably Couldn't See for the Lights but You Were Staring Straight at Me
xx Still Take You Home
xx Riot Van
xx Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured
xx Mardy Bum
xx Perhaps Vampires is A Bit Strong But...
xx When the Sun Goes Down
xx From the Ritz to the Rubble
xx A Certain Romance


I will leave the voting up for two weeks, so the deadline is Sunday 27th May, 11 PM.

I have not included the b-sides/other tracks that were released around this time - if there is enough interest, I will do those as a separate rate. Two of my top five AM tracks of all times aren't album tracks!

Four votes so far; there'll definitely be five, including me.

Hopefully we can get into double figures!

Loved the album at the time, but not aged as well for me as their sophomore album, which is far more complete as a piece of music.

My favourite of their albums that I've listened to, a load of anthems in there.

Will leave this up until FRIDAY now as I have a busy week this week.

Will have at least 10 votes, though, as I am still to vote. cheer.gif

Today's the final 'official' day of the rate, although I won't be collating/posting until Sunday, so I guess you have until then to vote.

It's very close at the moment between nearly all of the tracks - plenty of love still for this album it seems!
