The Arctic Monkeys dropped their new album The Car today and there's been a pretty strange reaction.
Today, 21 October, indie-rock fans clung onto their Doc Martens in anticipation of the band's seventh studio album.
It's the first time the Sheffield band has released new music since their 2018 offering the Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, and it's not what you'd expect.
The album is full of insightful quips, with a line from 'Jet Skis On The Moat' asking: "Are you just happy to sit there and watch as the paint job dries?"
One clearly wasn't impressed, saying: "Mad how arctic monkeys have actually managed to outdo themselves with another sh*t album."
Another echoed that opinion, saying: "F**king hell I thought the last Arctic Monkeys album was bad but this one is on another level of garbage."
While another simply added: "New arctic monkeys record is rubbish…"
However, others loved the new music, calling the album a masterpiece: "The Car by @ArcticMonkeys is another masterpiece. Without question the best and biggest band in the world. Happy to wait four years for the next one if it’s as good as this."
One even complimented how the band named their songs: "the way artic monkeys name their songs is simply blissful," which has to be one of the best bits of the job, surely.
Another loved the surprising turn the album took: "At a time when we are surrounded with commercial crap blasting on our radios and promoted by streaming platforms, Thank God for @ArticMonkeys - TRUE artistry, great, real music, superb lyricism."
Still, the music isn't the only surprise to come from the album - the cover art was pretty unexpected, with lead singer Alex Turner recounting how the band's drummer Matt Helders accidentally captured the photo for the cover art.
"When he took that photo he was probably not intending it to have anything to do with the Arctic Monkeys," Turner says.
"I had a hunch when I saw it for the first time that it should be the next record cover," a hunch that turned out to be right.
Surprise covers and quirky song names aside, what do you think of the new album?
