From CryingGameDahlin 12/27/2018 04:15
Easily their most fascinating and frustrating release since Humbug, as to ape the obvious comparison this seems to be Turner's darker, more synthesized Style Council moment. Comes close to cracking the code on a grander meaning beneath all the spiffy hole-in-the-wall futuristic lounge atmopshere, but too often indulges in repetitive compositions and flamboyant-but-empty lyrical grandstanding for it to really hit a nerve. It seems like they haven't fully put their more crowd-pleasing, for-the-arena tendancies behind them, and that ultimately keeps the album at a distance. Dissapointing overall but well worth multiple spins anyways.

this album is so specific, my first reaction was a little bit of awe. and respect. then I actually started to catch the melodies and piece together whats going on sonically. it's a crackin enjoyable listen. alex is at his best lyrically on this album, maximum esotericness and imagy. they accomplish the great trick of using a few specific instruments and audio effects to create a whole new world that's just their own, that they explore at length over the 11 tracks. it's my favorite AM album as of now, and I think it will age rather well compared to some of their other albums.

I'm surprised this album is rated so poorly here. Definitely their most ambitious work. They try a bunch of new stuff, and most of it really works. Alex Turner's lyrics are better than ever, and they're paired with some really great songs. Kind of like the musings of LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, but with a Bowie feel to it.

Cards on the table: I've never been hugely enamored with this band, but I totally understand their appeal. With Tranquility Base, Arctic Monkeys are clearly not content with just reaching for the stars. I applaud the ambition and oddness of a lot of this - One Point Perspective and Four out of Five are wonderful - but so often the gap between intention and delivery is really wide.

Was disappointed with the album on first listen, but looking back now, I don't think I would've wanted them to go in any other direction. The creativity in Alex's mind is amazing, to build on their biggest hit and their explosion into America with an album like this is a true mark of an artist who will stand the test of time. The concept itself is so intriguing, but the most enjoyment is received from working it all out yourself.

The atmosphere is out of this world, haunted house vibes. Sounds like David Bowie, or Pet Sounds, at times. Amazing to see the evolution, they reinvented themselves once again. "Science Fiction" is an underrated cut. Lyrically, there are many layers and it's really enjoyable to submerge yourself in Alex Turner's vision.

A risky concept album which after a few listens can be rewarding although I missed more musical input from the Monkeys and less focus on lyrics (which I generally like the content of though).
Best tracks IMO: TBH&C, The Ultracheese.
@Sisterray24 Try "Doomsday Afternoon".
