Tame Impala - The Slow Rush

  1. Possibly my favorite 'not quite pop' album of the year!
     
  2. My favourite song from the album just had a video made. It is insane, sexual and very well shot. So many drugs must've been used in its creation.

  3. We get it they do drugs.

    It's so funny to me that their sound is cool & hip and Pitchforky because their sound is exactly what the (then perceived) cheesy bands in the mid 80s made popular. So catchy too.
     
  4. This sounds exactly like a Memory Tapes / Washed Out album, which is a good thing but not a particularly new thing.

  5. I got this in the HMV sale for 4.99, because the cover is amazing and the reviews make me think I might like the music as well.

  6. This album is making a belated bid for my top ten of last year. When the production on Eventually builds and builds with tension before falling out for the "ah ah ah ah" hook I feel so lifted.

  7. Extraordinarily late to this but I love Let It Happen by Tame Impala.



    It's Royksopp meets Motown. I completely missed it on release and had to Shazam it from Tattoo Fixers! Yes, behind the times and I watch Tattoo Fixers.

    I thought others might have missed it too.

  9. Screaming.

    After Rih's fantastic cover of Same Ol' Mistake, I'm actually starting to love this album now. I didn't give much thought to it when it was released last year, but what a great pop album.

  12. I'm here for a Kevin Parker pop domination beginning with a Lady Gaga collabo. (Rihanna's karaoke version is great, but barely counts).
     
  13. I finally clicked with this brilliant album.

  14. Lonerism is miles better but I can't wait until summer really kicks in so I can blast this bad boy!

  15. I put this CD away on the shelf during my last tidy-up, and forgot about it until today when HMV had it on rotation. Must listen to the whole thing properly!

  17. Despite "Let It Happen" being one of my favourite songs from last year (the full version is the superior one, of course), I still haven't found the motivation to sit through the album. I remember listening to The Less I Know The Better once and not liking it much.
     




  18. Two best songs.

  19. Oh, the album is completely worth it. One of my favorites from last year & still on heavy rotation a year later. It is *very* pop, even if it's not officially classified as such. Past Life, Reality In Motion, Cause I'm A Man, Disciples = just incredible.

    The last half of the album is complete perfection. The only song I would probably discard would be The Moment.
