The Arctic Monkeys have released 6 studio albums to date which we will now rank from worst to best as we see them. Feel free to contradict our rankings in the comments with your own personal rankings and reasons for ranking them.

6. Suck It And See (2011)

This is not a bad album by any stretch of the imagination, just the worst album the band has produced compared to the other 5. Stand out tracks include; “Black Treacle”, “Suck It And See” and “Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair”.

5.Humbug (2009)

Another great album from the band, “Humbug” is often cited as the heaviest album they’ve produced. It was recorded in California and features many instruments never before heard from the Arctic Monkeys including Xylophones, Glockenspiels and Shakers. Stand out tracks include; “My Propeller”, “Fire And The Thud” and “Crying Lightning”.

4.  Favourite Worst Nightmare (2007)

Their second album established the band as more than just a one hit wonder. It also saw the replacement of bassist Andy Nicholson with Nick O’Malley. This album is different in sound to their debut but not in a bad way. Stand out tracks include; “Teddy Picker”, “Brainstorm” and “505”.

3. Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (2018)

Yet another change of direction from the Arctic Monkeys. This is a concept album loosely based on a sci-fi theme and addresses politics, religion and consumerism. Stand out tracks include; “Four Out Of Five” and “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino”.

2. AM (2013)

As always seems to be the case with the Arctic Monkeys, every album is different to the one before it, and this one is no different. With tracks ranging from hip hop to heavy metal this album has something for everyone. Stand out tracks include; “R.U.Mine” and “Do I Wanna Know”.

1. Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not (2006)

This is where it all started, and their debut must be one of the all-time great debut albums ever released. “Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not” was the fastest selling debut album in British history, selling more than 360,000 copies in its first week. It produced their first two UK number one singles with “I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor” and “When The Sun Goes Down”. Their first and arguably still their best.
