Arctic Monkeys Debut In U.S.

Today "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not" goes on sale in the United States. The debut album by the Arctic Monkeys has a smart title and has done a smart bit of business in sales. I quoted, one Australian columnist January 31, 2006, who reported this album to be "the fastest-selling debut in British chart history."

Today at Barry Walters gives the lads a glowing review. Describing lead singer Alex Turner, Walters states that, "Turner's hyper-realistic observations help explain why his group inspires this much loyalty." I agree. Honest was my first thought upon viewing their videos at Take a look. They might be street, but they're honest.
