With the rocking "R U Mine?" at the beginning and the gorgeous "I Wanna Be Yours" closing, Arctic Monkeys' fifth album spans their capabilities and adds the possibility that Alex Turner now believes in love. His hard rock pretensions are infinitely brighter here than on the somewhat moaning-and-groaning Humbug, though the tunes on AM don't stick out like the swelling jangle of the previous Suck It and See. Still, Turner's integrating more of his record collection into fuller visions with each new song cycle, and that's something to be proud of.
