NME Awards’ Album Of The Decade has gone for ‘AM’ by Arctic Monkeys.
‘AM’ catapulted Arctic Monkeys into headlining prospects at virtually every festival in the planet.
NME described the Sheffield indie legends’ fifth album from 2013 as “the soundtrack for countless nights out, hook-ups and comedowns in every town and city of this country”.
“It all started with those drums. We don’t just mean the languid stomp of opener ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ or the showy solo at the start of ‘R U Mine?’. No – we mean the way that as soon as you heard ‘AM’ erupt out of your speakers for the first time it was clear that from now on the Arctic Monkeys were moving to a different beat.”
