Arctic Monkeys–Terminal 5 (12/11/2009)
The two constants in the stylistic metamorphosis of the Arctic Monkeys that fans have witnessed over the course of the band’s first three albums have been the sophisticated lyrical craftsmanship of frontman Alex Turner and the virtuoso musicianship of drummer Matt Helders, both of which belie the age of the band. It’s been said before by others, but it’s worth repeating, these guys are just too damned young to be this good. Listening to the band’s recorded output, you can almost forget how young they are, but seeing them live, and seeing how young they look in person, only serves to bring into sharper focus how remarkable it is that they’ve already produced a series of records which will probably be considered classics of their era. I can’t say enough about the skills Helders displays behind his stripped down drum kit. He is simply a force of nature, both grounding the music of the band in a tight groove and propelling it with his explosiveness. And many others have already opined on the deftness of Turner’s lyrical phrasing and the tuneful infectiousness of his melodies.
Rage Against The Machine’s 1992 debut single ‘Killing In The Name‘ is 65,000 copies ahead of X Factor winner Joe McElderry’s cover of Miley Cyrus’ ‘The Climb‘ in the race for this year’s UK Christmas Number 1.
The track has retained it’s opening day lead after an Internet campaign launched to challenge the X Factor’s dominance over the Christmas Number 1 race attracted over 750,000 followers on Facebook.
