Released January 23, 2006. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not Tracklist. 1. The View from the Afternoon Lyrics. 2. I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor Lyrics. About Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not. Scrappy, lager-fueled tunes about being young and bored in a bleak Northern England steel town. Even Yanks couldn’t resist these raging Brit-pop-punk gems, and it wasn’t long before the Sheffield quartet’s debut became the fastest-selling debut album by a band in UK chart history. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not Q&A.
On Monday, the Arctic Monkeys sold 118,501 copies of their debut album in the UK, more than the rest of the top 20 combined. It's a startingly high figure not just because they're set to be the Biggest New Band Since Oasis but because of the speed with which they've gatecrashed their nation's public consciousness, going from unknown indie band to No. 1 on the singles charts in roughly six months.
Whatever People Say I Am is practically an old-fashioned concept album about working-class clubbing, a Saturday Night Fever for the British sons and daughters of parents raised on disco and punk. Yet Turner’s aim isn’t to be the best dancer, or to escape to the big city: It’s merely stayin’ alive, and pulling a few birds. The opening track, The View From the Afternoon, sets the stage with dead-end dive-bar lyricism: I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen, Turner sings. They’ve made an album that . punk fans of several generations could enjoy, if not claim as their own.
Back in 2006, Arctic Monkeys were cast as revolutionaries for uploading music to the internet.
Breathless, hyperbolic praise was piled upon the Arctic Monkeys and their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, an instant phenomenon without peer. Within the course of a year, the band rose from the ranks of an Internet phenomenon to the biggest band in the . all on the strength of early demos circulated on the web as MP3s. When Whatever People Say I Am hit the streets in January 2006, it sold a gob-smacking 118,501 copies within its first week of release, which not only made it the fastest-selling . debut ever, but sold more than the rest of the Top 20 combined - a remarkable achievement by any measure. Last time such excitement surrounded a new British guitar band it was a decade earlier, as Brit-pop hit overdrive with the release of Oasis' 1994 debut, Definitely Maybe.
As if to hammer the point home, the opening lyric of their debut album (tellingly titled ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not') is Anticipation has the habit to set you up for disappointmen. .Maybe more importantly is the fact that the song which it leads off on, ‘The View From The Afternoon’, is an absolutely cracking opener. Immediately hooky, the first minute showcases impressive instrumentation as well as effective vocals. This results in the Arctic Monkeys sounding somewhere between the dance-rock of Franz Ferdinand and the grittier sound of early Oasis, if not something a little more punky. Musically, the rhythm section of the band is astonishingly good considering that drummer Matt Helders took on the job by default and bassist Andy Nicholson struggled to handle life as a star.
