Arctic Monkeys – Suck It And See


Suck It and See is the fourth studio album by English rock band Arctic Monkeys, released on 6 June 2011 by Domino Recording Company. It was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator James Ford and was recorded at Sound City Studios in Los Angeles in early 2011, using mostly live takes opposed to overdubbing. Musically, Suck It and See represents a departure for the band following the darker sound of its predecessor Humbug (2009), the album features a wide variety of styles, from guitar pop to psychedelic pop. The album’s title, a British phrase meaning “give it a try”, was viewed as provocative in the United States and subsequently censored in some locations. Upon release, the album was promoted with various singles and topped the UK Albums Chart and has been certified platinum in the country. The album received generally positive reviews from music critics, with many calling it an improvement over its predecessor. Critics generally complimented the band’s style shift, although opinion varied on Turner’s lyrics. Retrospectively, reviewers have typically placed Suck It and See in the middle-low tier in rankings of the band’s studio albums.
