• Arctic Monkeys "The Car" LP
The English band returns with an adventurous, heavily orchestrated album filled with enigmatic songs of love, longing, and doubt.
The Car, their seventh studio album, is filled with detours, non sequiturs, and lost trains of thought, held together by Turner’s undulating vocal lines and an orchestra always at the ready like a wind-up toy waiting to be stirred to life. But, as with its predecessor, the more time you spend in its maze, the clearer its themes become: The Car is an album of love, longing, and doubt, and the obfuscation serves to bolster its core belief that the simplest truths are the hardest ones to discover. - review taken from pitchfork.com
