BBC Radio 6:
No.2 - Top Listener Voted Songs (from 2002 to 2012)

 

NME Best 100_2000s (2012):
No.28 - In the beginning, there was a song… And it was a really very good one. On the surface, this heads-down rocker seemed like an unspectacular introduction to what would become The Band That Changed Everything Maybe, but its innate exuberance and the sheer joyfulness of knowing just how fun it is to dance like a robot from 1984 elevated ‘…Dancefloor’ well above the sum of its parts. Its cause was helped no end by a charmingly retro video featuring as its centerpiece a wink from Helders to Turner that said more about the canny savvy of the band than a million clever-clever interview quotes.

 

NME - Top 150 from 1996 to 2011:
No.11 - Hurtling towards us on indie rock’s highway, ‘…Dancefloor’ came with its palms open. Guitars sounded like cars veering off the racetrack whilst Alex Turner’s lyrical dexterity hit with thrilling but entirely gob smacking levels of ingenuity. He seemed like he’d come from another time, a scholar amongst the knuckle dragging indie slackers who were rhyming ‘love’ with ‘dove’. His soon-to-be-legendary character portraits were nascent but here he shows his flair for the cheeky and literary; a quick nod to Shakespeare here, a wink to Duran Duran there. An indie hero was born on the ‘…Dancefloor’.
