Our take

by Angus

For those that found themselves enamoured with the darker, murkier and altogether more complex waters of 2009’s 'Humbug', this 2011 release from the Sheffield lads may have come across as a little bit clement.

Recorded mostly live in studio without 'Humbug'’s heavy overdubs and Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford on the boards, there’s an immediacy and poppiness to Suck It and See that some fans had been sorely missing. The album contains one of the band’s purest pop moments with album closer ‘That’s Where You’re Wrong’; the rolling bassline and catchy guitar licks coupled with a typically suave vocal turn from Alex Turner recalls some of Britpop’s most triumphant moments, and sets the band up nicely for 2013’s outstanding 'AM'.
