The Artics Monkey's: Favourite Worst Nightmare

I woke up the other morning with the clear sound of “Teddy Picker” resonating in my brain on a never-ending loop. I’m pretty sure John Humphries wasn’t playing it on the Today programme, so I’ve no idea where it came from, my only guess is that this powerful song has buried itself deep in my unconscious, which in hardly surprising as it’s a corking tune. “Favourite Worst Nightmare” as a whole though although being great somehow fails to have the certain spark that made their brilliant debut stand out so well. Although in may ways, “Favourite, Worst Nightmare” is superior to its predecessor, it has more rockier guitars, great production and catchy tunes perhaps it was just the originality and surprise of the first album that they couldn’t recapture.
