Arctic Monkeys' latest record Am has been named the album of the decade so far by editors of Britain's NME magazine.

The acclaimed release came top of the publication's poll to find the best music of the last four years, ahead of Kanye West's 2010 offering My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy at two and PJ Harvey's 2011 record Let England Shake at three.

West fared better in the song rundown, scoring best single of the decade for his 2011 Jay Z collaboration N**gas In Paris, while M.I.A. landed the best video nod for Bad Girls.
