We chat to journalist / Arctic Monkeys aficionado, Sophie Williams, about the band's most polarising album 'Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino' with a roundtable of those who love the LP and those who are less fond of it.
We get into how Tranquility Base has aged over the past 3 years, the live shows of this era, the deep literary and cinematic reference points of the album, first impressions and what it tells us about where Alex, Matt, Jamie and Nick could be heading next.
