Arctic Monkeys, the future of music?

We'll be discussing the phenomenon of this UK band Artic Monkeys. They already are headed for two No. 1 singles, and they don't even have their first album out yet (Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not). Their success was achieved in part through the Internet. (See here).

Just saw an article on Slate "A Perfect Album Arrives From Britain - You haven't heard of the Arctic Monkeys? You will" (See here)

It’s a very good album… but perfect? In my opinion, an album needs to stand the test of time before it can be declared perfect.

As far as the original blog goes, the band did get their fan base via the internet and they were playing sold out shows well before they ever released a record.

I just heard one of their songs, and can't say I thought it was that great, no accounting for taste I guess.
