NME.COM users have reacted to Arctic Monkeys' new single 'R U Mine?' and, by and large, they love it.

The track, which does not feature on the band's 2011 fourth album 'Suck It And See', was posted online in the early hours of yesterday (February 27). It will be released as a single on March 2. To watch the video click on the link above.

Charlie Simpson (not that one) loved it, writing of 'R U Mine?': "This song is brilliant, their abilities as musicians is growing as each new song is released. They're constantly moving forward." Michael Jarman agreed, he wrote: "Great video, good song."

Adam Cartwright was also full of praise for the track, he wrote: "Awesome song, they just keep evolving in new ways. I thought 'Suck It And See' was amazing, and now they're following it with darker tracks. Can't wait to see what's in store next!" Mark Comer felt the same, he said: "Back to their very best on this", while Sam Berry also liked it, simply writing: "Love it, tune."

It wasn't universal praise though, Andrea Modigliani hated it, writing: "Such an uninspired piece of music", while Darren Owen loathed it, he wrote: "You're not from New York City, you're from Sheffield. Boring yank inspired rock by numbers bilge." A number of users also compared the track to The Black Keys, who the band are about to support on tour across the USA and Canada.
