Formato s. Gravadora s. Domino Records. AM Multiple tracks feature baritone and lap steel guitars in addition to the electric and acoustic guitars typically used by the band, as well as a variety of percussion instruments, including rotary timpani and vibraphones.
The album has been compared to the works of David Bowie ,    Serge Gainsbourg ,    Leonard Cohen ,   Nick Cave ,  Jarvis Cocker ,    Richard Hawley  and Father John Misty ,     as well as Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys.
The multiple unreliable narrators are "sometimes barely [able to] string a sentence together",  and draw influence from lounge music. Turner commented that he took a different approach to writing lyrics than on previous albums, noting that he "became less concerned on this album [with] compartmentalising every idea to the point where each song became this episode that starts and ends in three minutes".
Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen inspired this different perspective on each lyric's relationship with its context.
On the connections between the two albums, Turner commented that "it's set in a completely different place, obviously, but there's something in the lyrics that reminds me of something in that writing.
I'm tempted to say that it's something to do with how blunt it is. On their impact, Turner commented: "The arrival of the Strokes changed what music I was listening to, what shoes I was wearing.
I grew my hair out and borrowed my mum's blazer. I was a huge fan". Turner has stated that this was based on real-life interactions, noting his interest in the fact that "it goes beyond: 'What do you mean you've never seen Blade Runner?
Its title refers to a cinematic technique often employed by film directors such as Stanley Kubrick and Wes Anderson , which Turner described as "unsettling".
On "American Sports", the album explores a darker musical direction,  featuring "spooky", heavily affected keyboards.
On "The World's First Ever Monster Truck Front Flip", Turner vocally alternates from a "Bowie-style drawl to the falsetto and to a gruff murmur",  with its minimal percussion and bass guitar and use of reverb being compared to Pet Sounds.
The album's "schmoozy" final track "The Ultracheese" has been compared to pop standards " Que Sera, Sera ",  " New York, New York ", " Are You Lonesome Tonight?
The track was recorded in a live take with a large ensemble, including baritone and pedal steel guitars, two drum kits, a bass guitar, a Wurlitzer , and two pianos.
Turner referred to the song as the group's most successful implementation of this recording style. The album's artwork was designed by Alex Turner using cardboard cut-outs and a Revox A77 tape machine, itself containing an early version of the album.
By the end of it, I think I'd forgotten there even was a record. I'd just gotten obsessed with cardboard. Turner began imagining a model of the titular hotel within its lobby.
He was further inspired by the rotating sign of Los Angeles food chain House of Pies , an element which he incorporated into the artwork. The album's title is in reference to Tranquility Base , the first site on the Moon to be walked by humans.
Turner was inspired by the conspiracy theory that Stanley Kubrick faked the first Moon landing, initially naming the spare room in which he wrote and recorded the project's demos "Lunar Surface".
He stated that naming the room was "instrumental" in the conception of the title, alongside a series of Apollo -branded cups owned by Turner which depict an eagle with the caption "Tranquility Base".
In September , bassist Nick O'Malley announced that the band had begun recording a follow-up to 's AM , stating that if a new album was not released in they would have had "problems".
The video depicted the spinning model featured in the album's artwork, and included snippets of new music. The stylised video is inspired by Kubrick, featuring the surreal science fiction style established in "Four Out of Five", and depicts Turner exploring a hotel.
In January , the band announced a tour of North America and Europe which began in May,   concluding in October at the Voodoo Experience.
This was the tour's opening performance, and the Arctic Monkeys' first performance since Turner's presence was also noted to be more "playful" than on the band's previous tours, attributed to his decreased usage of the guitar,  with the band described as embodying " lounge lizard " characters.
The group released the minute documentary film Warp Speed Chic on their YouTube channel in October The film was directed by Chappell, and features footage of the French leg of the tour, intercut with September footage of the band recording the album in France.
The band made a number of television performances in promotion of the album including on the late-night talk shows The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon ,  The Late Late Show with James Corden  and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
Thomas Smith of NME noted that the album was likely to divide listeners, describing it as "the band's most intriguing record to date".
For The Guardian , Alexis Petridis praised the project's humour, but criticised its occasional smugness, noting that the tracks "can feel like less than the sum of their parts".
He concluded that the album was an imperfect success which showcased "evidence — albeit flawed — of a certain musical restlessness".
She praised the album's stylistic deviation from the accessible rock of AM , resulting in "a riveting and immersive listen".
However, he noted that focused listening revealed careless details, and that the album was hindered by an absence of memorable songs. Club noted that its lack of "obvious hooks" was its key flaw, with its structureless nature resulting in the album feeling "unmoored and even plodding".
The album debuted at number one in France, Australia, Scotland, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Greece and Portugal. It additionally reached number two in Ireland, New Zealand, Denmark and Norway, and the top ten in Austria, the Czech Republic, Italy, Canada, Germany, Mexico, Finland, Sweden, Japan and Poland.
In the United States, the album debuted at number eight on the Billboard chart, selling 47, units, of which 37, were in traditional album sales.
This became the band's fourth nomination for the award: the second most nominations received by any act. The album also appeared on numerous year-end lists.
Uproxx ,  BBC Radio 6 Music  and Entertainment Weekly  included the album in the top five of their year-end lists, with Vulture  and The Guardian  including the album in their top ten.

The album exists in a narrow bandwidth of sound but that strip reveals depths and textures over time. But this voyage into themed purgatory — what one song calls the Ultracheese — is worth it.
