Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The unassuming foursome of nineteen- and twenty-year-olds specializes in propulsion, momentum and repetition -- in succinct riffs and snarly, wordy lyrics..."

Rolling Stone (p.104) - Ranked #17 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 50 Albums Of 2006" -- "[G]arage-punk nuggets built in the grim steel town of Sheffield."

Spin (p.62) - Ranked #03 in Spin's "The 40 Best Albums of 2006" -- "Beneath the scenester cool and post-Pavement guitar fuzz. WHATEVER PEOPLE SAY I AM is exuberant teenage garage pop..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.60) - "Guitars and drums ricochet off each other; riffs are bounced around like soccer balls. With their kicky hooks, the songs owe more to Warped Tour thrashers than to stoic post-punk inspirations..." -- Grade: A-

Q (p.126) - Ranked #1 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "[B]ristling with energy and plugged into the era's social conditions and colloquialisms."

Uncut (p.86) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Alex Turner's breathless delivery is faultless, a foaming cocktail of lust and longing, occasionally brimming over into Costello-esque rage."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Fashion and hype be damned -- this is thrilling, incontrovertible evidence of a major new talent in our midst."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.56) - Ranked #82 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "Arctic Monkeys delivered a debut bristling with Modish urgency and teenage angst."

Clash (magazine) (p.74) - "[T]here really was no doubt that in this modern punk and hip-hop inspired vignette of reality bites, and Northern colloquialisms, the Monkeys had defined the zeitgeist..."
