Arctic Monkeys released their sixth album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino today and it's causing quite the stir.
Worlds away from their big, festival-ready record AM, this one puts Alex Turner's lyrics at the forefront with some of their most complex work to date.
There were no singles released before the album was released and that's probably because this really isn't a singles album at all. It's all one complete body of work that's almost impossible to pick apart.
People already have plenty of hot takes on the album and it's completely divided. Some people think it's genius, others think it's bordering on boring.
Check out all the different reviews below.
The new Arctic Monkeys record is unequivocally genius.

It’s like Pink Floyd had sex with David Bowie then got that baby aborted, but the abortion baby lived, then the abortion baby took LSD with the Beatles and fucked The Arctic Monkeys and the resulting baby of that mess is TBHC, and it’s lovely.

i feel bad for people who refuse to listen to tbh&c just because it's not something they're used to with the band like im sorry but you're missing out on one of arctic monkeys' masterpieces just because you're not open to change
