arctic monkeys return with their sixth album, entitled ‘tranquility base hotel & casino’. 

their first release since 2013’s ‘AM’ finds the band intent on continuing to explore new musical terrain with each album. ‘tranquility base hotel & casino’ ups the ante in a big way; it is a bold and brilliant album reflecting turner’s ever more comprehensive creative vision.

“I just wanted to be one of The Strokes/Now look at the mess you made me make” (‘Star Treatment’)

easily one of the most iconic opening lines of an album in recent years. the frontman’s said he’s talking to himself in this line, but it’s easy to read it as he’s talking to any number of groups – the media, the music industry, the fans.
