Humbug is the third studio album by English rock band Arctic Monkeys, first released on 19 August 2009 through the Domino Recording Company. The band started to write songs for the album towards the end of summer 2008, and finished it entirely in spring 2009. Like their previous release, Favourite Worst Nightmare (2007), Humbug was released first in Japan, on 19 August 2009, followed by Australia, Brazil, Ireland and Germany, on 21 August 2009

Humbug is Arctic Monkeys' third studio album. The album was recorded at the luxurious Rancho de la Luna during a pause in touring and activity in 2008. This short hiatus was a change in pace after the quick work ethic displayed in between their debut and Favourite Worst Nightmare. The trippy, brash sound used in the new record was adopted partly with the help of Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme. The sounds developed on the album showed AM charting an entirely new landscape that was left untouched on their first two albums. Humbug was the group’s third consecutive album to immediately chart at on the UK Billboard top 200, further proving their longevity.

Hostess Entertainment Unlimited.

So in reality, it's not too surprising that Humbug is the weakest Arctic Monkeys album yet. What is surprising, though, is where the strengths and weaknesses of this album lie. You'd expect the songs to impress and the sound to disappoint, and yet, the exact opposite is true. However regularly Homme has disappointed since Songs for the Deaf made him a star, and whatever stories have come out about his personal life, you simply can't fault what he does here - the sound is basically perfect.

Wading into the murk of Humbug it becomes clear that the common ground between the Monkeys and Homme is the actual act of making music, the pleasure of not knowing what comes next when an entire band is drifting inside a zone.

Humbug,' the 3rd album from Sheffield's Arctic Monkeys finds the band brimming with vim, vigor and new ideas. They brought in a new production accomplice, Josh Homme, for some of the recording. He generously hosted and produced tracks with them at his Joshua Tree studio. Then they rejoined forces with James Ford, producer of the previous 2 Arctic Monkeys and Last Shadow Puppets albums, in Brooklyn, NY to complete the tracks that became 'Humbug. The album is stunning set of songs both heavier and lush than previous albums but still full of the Monkeys usual punch and.

And so the curtain closes on Arctic Monkeys MK. II, as all the successful elements of Humbug are squeezed into the six minute epic closing track - the equivalent of a marathon for the normally short and sharp Northern tykes. Musically it's haunting and claustrophobic with an unerring combination of jangling guitar and chiming orchestration floating in the background as the song slowly grows to a climax

It’s darker, it’s moodier, and its charm becomes more apparent with each subsequent listen. Joshua Homme of Queens of the Stone Age co-produced the album with James Ford, who worked with lead vocalist/ songwriter, Alex Turner on the side project, The Last Shadow Puppets. Although some long time fans may be disappointed with the new direction, Humbug is undoubtedly the Arctic Monkeys best album and a legitimate contender for album of the year. Some of those same fans may even be surprised to find out which album is dominating their playlists in a couple of months. The band’s earlier releases were fun and energetic, but Humbug is like Greta Garbo in Grand Hotel.
