    the arctic monkeys.Are they rubbish or am I old?

    the very first thing I did after xzyte told me how to download stuff was to download the arctic monkeys album, well after downloading 7 porn movies from pure tna, it was the next thing I did.

    they won the booker prize or whatever for music last week and have been lauded by all and sundry. i've always thought sundry was a tasteless twat but all seems to know his stuff.

    anyway, i though it was hairy bollux, and will not give it a second chance.

    Am I wrong?

    I just listened to the first 5 tracks and won't bother with 6 or 10

    They're a bit ordinary aren't they.

    Have you tried Kasabian? Much better. Or the new Elbow album?

    No, not yet, but I've smagged everything I can by the super furry animals.

    they always put me in a bit of a joyous mood.

    Lyrically, they're rather good. But vocally and musically? Not so much.

    Musically they're pretty good unless you like rap which means you really aren't qualified to have an opinion.

    Why is everyone looking at me?

    To be honest, although they're a big "thing" at the moment, I couldn't name a single Kasabian song. Arctic Monkeys, yeah. But as I said, they're far from brilliant.

    Are we talking about new breakfast cereals or what?

    Sorry, I don't even have the excuse of being old, but I haven't even heard of any of those lot.

    Cheesey Monkeys would have been a better name.

    Well, thanks to a superfast download, I still think Elbow and Kasabian have more to offer than Snow Patrol. They're a bit like Athlete; a bit nothingy really.

    Just downloaded the brand new Belle and Sebastian album.
    Now that's far more like it.

    B & S always seemed like a couple of poofs, poncing around with acoustic guitars to me. I'm surprised you didn't like the Artic Monkeys.
