I wanted to like this ... but the songs all sorta bleed together and the lyrics bugged me. Ended up not really enjoying it.

I've never been a great AM fan but I think this could be the first album of theirs that I could really like. Sounds like a perfect soundtrack for lazy summer days.

This a leak or an official streaming?

I've really enjoyed this album - its like they've heard those fan's cries for the sound of old and yet neither compromised their integrity or artistic direction to give it to them (if you know what i mean haha). Fits nicely in between FWN & Humbug whilst still sounding 'new'.

I wasn't the biggest fan of the album when I first heard it, but after a bunch more listens I absolutely love it. Waaaaay better than Humbug. The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala, She's Thunderstorms, Library Pictures, and Suck It and See are the big stand-out tracks for me. The only minor issue I have with it is Alex Turner's vocals. He does a fantastic job on some songs, but for the most part he sounds downright bored here. I wish he would go back to his former range. Overall, great summer album though.

We never post leaks. It's an official stream from Domino Records.

Ahh right. Just checking. I probably should have clicked the link before posting that, since it was submitted by DominoRecordCo.
So stoked to hear this.

sounds like whatever people say i am... instrumentals mixed with humbug lyrics, which is pretty much what everybody expected based on the singles. i dig it.

I love brick by brick and Library pctures. The others seem kinda boring at first listen, but i'm sure i'll enjoy it.

I haven't liked anything by these guys since 2007, but this album is pretty good. Need to listen more though.

A great album. High points are definitely Brick By Brick, Don't Sit Down and Library Pictures. Going to order it now.
