Hi Jim,

The ATJ album I have is I Am a Bird Now. Superb, eerie, haunting, unique. I have two Arctic Monkeys albums and prefer the first: Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. They do have some quiet songs - I'll see if I can link "Riot Van" here, which has nice triple rhymes, besides all else.
Here it is:


Oh - not sure if it's obvious, but that's a strong Sheffield accent (and dialect) you'll hear.

Hey Jim,

Some Arctic Monkeys! Turner is a great songwriter. He started off with a kind of working class teenage kitchen-sink realism and got progressively weirder. But he's a romantic at heart.
