Single Review: Arctic Monkeys – Cornerstone (Domino)

By | Published on Thursday 19 November 2009

Arctic Monkeys

Like their hair, and the fame of at least one of their partners, Arctic Monkeys’ music is only getting more ambitious. Now a long way away from the teenage swagger of their supreme debut, ‘Cornerstone’ continues the Monkeys’ evolution, offering perhaps less of an immediate impact than their earlier material, but with a reward just as glorious when you get there – it’s three minutes of masterful, classy pop. As long as he’s able to deliver such tender heartbreak, Turner will remain Britain’s most purposeful lyricist, and Arctic Monkeys will remain the most deserving of those heralded “Britain’s biggest”.
