it's amazing. If you are on this site and arnt a fan of the current Arctic Monkeys song canon, I feel truly terrible for you. Suck It & See is in my top three albums for sure of the year.

found the lyrics on fuckyeaharcticmonkeys.tumblr:

Evil Twin
You never met before
But still she greets you like a long lost rock & roll
She’s definitely one of those
But you go wherever she goes
Oh when my body and my mind
Both start talking at the exact same time
Try’na think of ways to make her mine
But they’re difficult to find
It’s not what I need
No, your love’s not what I need
So don’t give it to me
And she said: “Oh, well I knew this will sound cold
But I really have to go
Oh it’s not that I’m not free
There’s nowhere I need to be
It’s just your love’s not what I need
So don’t give it to me”
It’s not what I need
No, your love’s not what I need
So don’t give it to me
She said: I can never believe you
How can I believe you when you can’t believe your own
No point sticking to the plan when it’s going slow
It’s more a hunger than a thirst
You’ll break it out the second time
Before you know about the first
Looks well-equipped to leave you in the lurch
But you’ll let her do your worst
And it’s not hard to tell
It’s obvious the other angels faces fell
When she told them that she had to go
Trade her wings and overcoat for something colourful

I do like the record, but I don't really know why. I bought it on a whim this summer and find it in my rotation pretty regularly though I never really say..."Man, let's put on the new Arctic Monkey's album." Very strange...

Loving this song, wish there were more like it on the record. SIAS was great nonetheless.

The video is a follow on from the video for the single "Suck It And See", so it's because of that.

SI&S is very solid, prob my third fav monkeys record. I like how all the fast stuff is right in the middle and the more "acoustic based writing songs" are at the end, it closes great with That's Where You're Wrong as well. That song reminds me of LCD Soundsystem's All My Friends for some reason.

Funny you'd say that, in a track-by-track interview they did for NME they literally mentioned All My Friends as being musically similar to That's Where You're Wrong:

Quote:
That’s Where You’re Wrong
It were all about having the words not get in the way of this one. That were one of the last ones we did when we were in London before Christmas. We did it in one day. It’s a bit like '505’ – that tune on the second album, where it’s just two chords all the way through and we’d wanted to do a tune like that again for a while. There’s loads of good examples of that like that LCD Soundsystem 'All My Friends’ tune.
