The British rock group Arctic Monkeys has released their very first live album, Live at The Royal Albert Hall. This album features songs performed during their tour following the release of their previous album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino in 2018. While this compilation of their greatest hits performed live are surely recognizable by any Arctic Monkey fan, each one brings a new raw energy that can only be captured live.

The sixth track, “505,” begins with a slow self-reflective introduction driven by only the drone of an eerie organ, and then completely changes mood halfway with the lyrics, “I crumble completely when you cry,” featuring heavy drumming and guitar riffs. The ninth track “Cornerstone,” lead singer Alex Turner reflects on his experience with unrequited love and constantly mistaking other people for his crush—even asking if he could call them by her name.
