Album Release of the Week: Arctic Monkeys, “AM”

Since the release of their first album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, in 2006, the Arctic Monkeys have been evolving their style of music to showcase on their fifth album, AM. The recent album came out on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2013. For those of you who are not familiar with the Arctic Monkeys, they are an English rock band from Sheffield that formed in 2002. The have produced five records over the course of eight years. Their first album was the fastest selling debut album in UK history, selling 363,735 records in the first week.

Their newest album, AM, is a culmination of their career. It incorporates the intense, raw sounds of the first album, with a mixture of influences from g-funk and classic rock. It’s upbeat and fun to listen to whether you are walking to school, hanging out with friends, orworking out in Koret Health and Recreation Center. Matt Helder’s drumming is reserved yet tasteful, which truly changes the sound from previous albums. The backing vocals harmonize stylishly with lead vocalist, Alex Turner’s alluring croon. A few of the songs on the album really stood out to me and I have not been able to stop listening to them.

The album opens with its lead single, “Do I Wanna Know,” a song that gets you excited to listen to the rest of the album. The minimalist drum beat adds to the anthemic, intriguing sound of the song.  Track 4, titled “Arabella,” tells the story of a space woman whose “lips are like the galaxy’s edge, and her kiss the color of a constellation falling into place.” The hip-hop style beat mixed with attention-grabbing lyrics makes for a definite stand out track The third single, and ninth track on the record, “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High,” tells the story that some of us know all too well. The lyrics describe a man on a drunken night out, blowing up a girl’s phone and trying to see her. The lyrics are almost conversational, and he sings the hook in a bit of a slur: “Now it’s three in the morning, and I’m trying to change your mind, left you multiple missed calls and to my message, you reply. Why’d you only call me when you’re high?” The song begins slow, with a simple beat followed by a catchy chorus. I definitely recommend checking out this song along with its music video. The second to last song, “Knee Socks,” is quite possibly the sexiest and best song on the album. The alluring beat and simple guitar riff makes it the catchiest song on the record. The lyrics, “I might have lit the fuse that you did not want to be lit,” imply that the girl did not want to become attached, but may already have. With guest vocals from Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, it is my favorite track on the record. If you listen to any song on the album, I recommend this one.

The band is currently on tour promoting AM, and they will be performing at the Fox Theater in Oakland on Thursday, Sept. 26 and Friday, Sept. 27. If you are interested in hearing the album live, this is your chance.

If you have been a fan of Arctic Monkey’s last albums, this record will not disappoint. And if you have never listened to them before, AM is a great starter album. It is one of my favorite records to come out this year, and is certainly a worthy listen!

  9. We will remember in which Harry Reid is actually a man Mormon. some remarkable nBut there is something else here that almost everyone will be incomplete Romney would possibly not paid any kind of taxes regarding several years mainly because he may not need attained it pay for ten years. Hew effectively could have paid himself a salary regarding $1 which can be perfectly 100 % legal and that is definitely not taxable, therefore zero “income” tax.

The substances elemental cobalt, cobalt chloride and cobalt sulfate (CAS RN ) were identified in the categorization of the Domestic Substances List as high priorities for action under the Challenge. Elemental cobalt and cobalt sulfate (CAS RN ) were considered to pose greatest potential for exposure of individuals in Canada whereas cobalt chloride was considered to pose intermediate potential for exposure. All of these substances are classified by other agencies on the basis of carcinogenicity. These substances all met the ecological categorization criteria for persistence; cobalt chloride and cobalt sulfate also met the categorization criteria for inherent toxicity to aquatic organisms. Therefore this assessment considers both human health and ecological risks.The substances were assessed together as they generate a common moiety of concern, Co2+, under physiological and environmental conditions, and are thus considered to be toxicologically equivalent. Additionally, measurements of cobalt in environmental media and foods are not able to distinguish between forms of cobalt. However, this assessment does not consider other cobalt substances, which may also contribute to this moiety. To the extent possible, only releases of cobalt related to the three cobalt substances were considered for the ecological assessment. Other anthropogenic sources of the cobalt moiety to the environment were not systematically included.In 2006, according to domestic information reported under section 71 of CEPA 1999, between 1 000 000 and 10 000 000 kg of elemental cobalt were manufactured,and between 100 000 and 1 000 000 kg of elemental cobalt were imported and used. In 2006, Canadian companies reported the manufacture of between 100 000 and 1 000 000 kg and the import and use of between 10 000 and 100 000 kg of cobalt chloride. Additionally in 2006, submissions for cobalt sulfate reported: (1) the manufacture of between 1 000 000 and 10 000 000 kg for CAS RN and 64 400 kg for CAS RN 10393 49 4; (2) the import of between 100 000 and 1 000 000 kg (CAS RN ) and 1 449 700 kg (CAS RN 10393 49 4); (3) the use of between 1 000 000 and 10 000 000 kg () and 1 462 600 kg (10393 49 4). In 2008, in Canada, the majority of cobalt from cobalt containing commercial substances was recycled (70%) or was disposed (27%). In Canada, elemental cobalt, cobalt chloride, and cobalt sulfate are primarily used as industrial raw materials; in particular elemental cobalt is commonly used in the production of alloys and carbides with high temperature and wear resistance.Anthropogenic releases of elemental cobalt, cobalt chloride and cobalt sulfate to the environment are almost entirely due to various industrial activities including base metal production and alloys/superalloys manufacturing. Following release from these sources, the above cobalt substances may enter the aquatic ecosystem. Elemental cobalt, in the form of powders, has a limited capacity for dissolution in water, whereas cobalt chloride and cobalt sulfate have high water solubility. Therefore these substances will dissolve in contact with moisture once in the aquatic media and will yield a variety of dissolved cobalt species of varying proportions depending on the environmental conditions. Dissolved cobalt has been demonstrated to have a relatively high potential to cause harm to aquatic organisms.Site specific exposure scenarios were developed for the major industrial sources of elemental cobalt, cobalt chloride and cobalt sulfate to the environment. Exposure concentrations were predicted near seven industrial facilities that include five nickel/copper/cobalt smelters and refineries, one cobalt alloy manufacturer and one manufacturer of a battery component. Based on a risk quotient analysis, there is likelihood of harm to aquatic organisms resulting from exposure to the total cobalt moiety. However, the specific contribution of the three substances to the total exposure to the dissolved cobalt moiety remains uncertain. It is therefore concluded, at this time, that the three substances are not individually entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends. Elemental cobalt, cobalt chloride and cobalt sulfate meet the criteria for persistence but do not meet the criteria for bioaccumulation potential as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations.Based on available information on concentrations of total cobalt in environmental media (soil, drinking water, ambient air) and food, as well as results from surveys conducted under section 71 of CEPA 1999, the general population is expected to be exposed primarily to cobalt through diet. The dietary intake of total cobalt by Canadians was found to be similar to that of other developed nations. Adult Canadians are also potentially exposed to cobalt through the use of personal care products reported to contain cobalt chloride.Based principally on the weight of evidence based assessments of international or other national agencies, a critical effect for characterization of risk to human health for elemental cobalt, cobalt chloride, and cobalt sulfate is carcinogenicity. Increased incidences of lung tumours were observed in male mice and rats exposed by inhalation to the highest concentration of cobalt sulfate tested, and in female mice and rats at the two highest concentrations of cobalt sulfate tested in a 2 year bioassay. No evidence was available to suggest carcinogenicity via the oral route. In vitro and in vivo genotoxicity data indicate that elemental cobalt, cobalt choride and cobalt sulfate have the potential to cause DNA and chromosome damage. However, these effects are likely mediated by indirect mechanisms including the generation of reactive oxygen species, increased oxidative stress, and inhibition of DNA repair enzymes. As the tumours observed in experimental animals are unlikely to have resulted from direct interaction with genetic material, a margin of exposure approach is used to assess risk to human health.The critical effect level for non cancer effects by the oral route is a conservatively estimated LOAEL of 0.04 mg Co/kg bw per day based on lethal cardiomyopathy in subjects who consumed large quantities of beer containing cobalt sulfate. The affected population may have been more sensitive due to dietary insufficiencies and prior cardiac damage from excessive alcohol consumption. As cobalt is known to stimulate red blood cell production, cobalt salts have been used in humans to treat anaemia at doses up to 0.32 mg Co/kg bw per day for periods of several weeks to several months. There is some evidence for reproductive and developmental toxicity of soluble cobalt (II) salts in rodents, but only at dose levels more than 100 times higher than the lowest effect levels in humans.The critical effect level for non cancer effects by inhalation is a LOAEC of 0.0151 mg Co/m3 in workers exposed to cobalt dust, based on a significantly higher prevalence of eye, nose and throat irritation and cough, and reduced lung function, relative to controls (unexposed workers). These effects were not observed in workers exposed to cobalt dust at 0.0053 mg Co/m3. The critical effect level in humans is 25 times lower than the lowest concentration at which tumours were observed in rodent bioassays.The margins between upper bounding estimates of exposure to cobalt from environmental media, food and consumer products and levels associated with effects are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases. On the basis of the adequacy of the margins between conservative estimates of exposure to cobalt and critical effect levels in humans, it is concluded that cobalt, cobalt chloride and cobalt sulfate are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.Search continues for missing elderly man in Laurens Co

  22. My husband and i have been so lucky Ervin could conclude his studies through the entire precious recommendations he made from your very own site. It is now and again perplexing to simply continually be making a gift of facts which usually most people may have been trying to sell. And we all recognize we now have the blog owner to be grateful to for that. The type of explanations you’ve made, the easy web site navigation, the relationships you will assist to promote – it is most overwhelming, and it’s helping our son and us understand this subject is thrilling, which is particularly mandatory. Many thanks for all!
