Humbug (2009)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Aug 25, 2009; Lead Performance: Arctic Monkeys; Genre: Rock

Three albums in, the lads from northern England continue to churn out spiky Britpop anthems, though they take a (relative) turn for the deeper and darker on their new album, Humbug. There's a new psychedelic wooze that springs, no doubt, from the album's producer, sludge-rock maestro 
and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme. B+
