A really cohesive album with an homogeneous (and high) level of quality.
I don't know if any of you can help me (I haven't found it myself on Internet) but I'm curious about who played the different guitar parts on the album. If you listen closely to the album (especially with headphones) the guitars are extremely panned with a player on left channel and another one on right channel, with very rarely overdubbed guitars sounding on both channels. Do you know which player was Alex Turner and which was Jamie Cook?

A Certain Romance's placement might be the most surprising thing I've seen on Rank the Tracks.

Well, these things can happen when the participation is low. The last two ballots changed a lot the positions of both "Mardy Bum" and "A Certain Romance," pushing them up 4 positions (check the results thread).
About the question I asked last week I found myself the answer watching live videos of the Arctic Monkeys. The guitar player that sound on the right channel is Alex Turner, the one that plays the most interesting guitar parts (both lead and rhythmic). Arctic Monkeys is a band with a strong leadership (and that's good in this case).
