Who The F*** Are The Arctic Monkeys? | May 2018 So Far

Arctic Monkeys 2006-2018

A question to which the answer is so hard to find, that even the Arctic Monkeys are struggling. Their new album, Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino, sees the Arctic Monkeys make a massive sonic shift from boisterous big-hitters of ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ and ‘Brianstorm’.

From day one of its release, this album has split the followers down the middle. However, the charts are starting to show that it’s winning them back. This album is currently outselling the rest of the Top 20 combined. This sudden spike has given a jolt of energy back into their older albums, with 'AM' back in the top 20 after climbing 29 places to 11, and ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’ sitting at 20.

All of this shows that although critics have been hailing this as the album that kills the Arctic Monkeys, the reality is that it’s not only Alex Turner’s hair that has improved, but maybe his music too.
