  1. I still really like this. One of the better releases this year, imo.

    The info on genius.com about "Star Treatment" triggered my obsession with this album. So many references packed into this thing it's unreal.

    It's gloomy and kinda rainy out so I went for a nice walk and listened to this, felt really nice. This album is fantastic

    One of the best of the year. Absolutely came out of nowhere for me.

    I don't know if I've heard another album of theirs in full. We definitely played "R U Mine?" and "Do I Wanna Know?" on my university's station when I worked there, and my roommate owned that record, but I always kind of categorized them with The Black Keys and other garage/blues-rock stuff. The Leonard Cohen/FJM comparisons I saw floating around this record are what made me seek it out

    Oh shit...I don't know how I've gone this long without it ever once crossing my mind that AM is just named after the band's initials. I always just thought of it like morning time.

    The cover of AM also has the letters AM in the middle. Took me awhile to notice that

    the band’s initials and AM radio seemed most obvious to me

    It's a rip-off and/or allusion to Velvet Underground's "VU"

    Oh wow you’re right, I’d never noticed that before

    This is a pretty fair assumption to make. My older brother got into Suck It and See big time but absolutely hated AM because it was so generic and safe.

    This band is so cool though. They have this monster commercial success with AM, tour the shit out of it, and then return with Tranquility Base, probably the farthest possible sounding album you can get from AM. Whatever people say they are, that's what they're not.

    I remember when I first heard AM. I told someone they ripped off Black Keys’ sound from Brother’s so hard. Came to find out later that AM toured w/ BK before making AM and “fell in love” with BK’s sound. AM even used the same engineer - Brian Lucey - to master the record since he did BK’s Brothers.

    AM is great.

    The B-side "Anyways" is very solid
