Probably the only Arctic Monkeys song to regularly make me cry (in a good way that is). A wonderful slice of kitchen sink drama that should silence any remaining Alex Turner naysayers. Their best tune yet and you can hear the Richard Hawley influence snaking through the golden Sheffield afternoon.  

"And I elongated my lift home, Yeah I let him go the long way round, I smelt your scent on the seat belt, And kept my shortcuts to myself".

Cornerstone by Arctic Monkeys

What is there left to say about the Arctic Monkeys? Super tight...super funny...super good...Ive always thought that they sounded like a more abrasive Norman Wisdom, but what do I know. The Sheffield posse (?) seem to have ditched the cloth caps, pie and peas and in an effort to potentially appeal to the American market have become a RAWK BAND. The title track 'Cornerstone' from this latest offering is quite the ballad. Mid tempo, check. Soft drum sound, check. Yearning lyrics, check. Its almost as if Boston never existed. The Artics will no doubt win over a new legion of fans, what with there "mature" sound and thespian facial hair, but this reviewer was unmoved by the title track....there are 3 other tracks on this EP and I reckon that all of them are more worthy of your time. The last track 'Fright Lined Dining Room' is my favourite, it has a Fall-esque feel to it and a strange haunted house type production. A few of their new songs have been produced by Josh Homme. The old adage "You can put a candle in a turd, but that doesn't make it a cake" spring to mind....
