With Oasis no longer being Oasis someone was bound to step up and try to lay claim to the title of biggest band in England. Hello, Arctic Monkeys. After a debut album packed with youthful brashness, punk-rock passion, and hooks galore, they’ve spent the better part of their fledgling career figuring out what they wanted to do next without much of anything hitting as hard as 2006’s Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not. “Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair,” tries to remedy those four years of misses with a wall of guitars big enough to make a Gallagher brother shudder. Lord knows how many tracks and how many tries it took to get such thickness, but there it is — A huge rumble of a guitar melody hinting at both the native influences of a pyschedelic rock band like The Black Angels, and the Beatles fixation of, well, you guessed it, Oasis. Just do yourself a favor. While you’re enjoying that massive sound, do your best to tune out whatever it is vocalist Alex Turner is blabbering about.  Bad doesn’t even begin to describe this:

Bite the lightning and tell me how it tastes
Kung-fu fighting on your roller skates
Do the Macarena in the devil’s lair
But just don’t sit down ’cause I moved your chair
