Arctic Monkeys bring plenty of fresh energy and ideas to their third album. The band also brought on Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age to help produce some of the tracks on the album. Includes the single Crying Lightning.

The band Arctic Monkeys never disappoint their listeners, which is proven with their third studio album “Humbug.” I truly do not think that Arctic Monkeys has any bad albums at all! Humbug features amazing songs like Crying Lightning, Secret Door, and Dance Little Liar. You can listen to these unique and creative songs a ton of times without getting tired of them. The lead singer Alex Turner’s voice is absolutely amazing and the guitar and instrumental parts are just as good. I would definitely recommend this album and I would rate it 3.5/5 stars.

I've heard many things about this band. This was my first album I listened to.

I'm sitting on the fence about this album. Parts of it I really enjoy, but others just don't grab me. I'm going to giv it a few more listens before I make my final decision on it.

A step up of maturity from their last two albums. It evolved, like most of their fans. Great guitar rifts and haunting and intriguing music that stays in your mind within days.

Creativity at its best.
