iTunes Review

Canyon-like grooves, iridescent synths, and hypnotic melodies: Kevin Parker’s third full-length under his Tame Impala alias is his finest to date—a throbbing, psychedelic soul opus that echoes Michael Jackson and Prince as readily as it does Syd Barrett. While the opening statement, “Let It Happen,” is a mostly guitar-less, seven-minute journey through cascading keyboards and falsetto vocals, “The Moment” is majestic pop that brims with both finger-snaps and gilded basslines.

Customer Reviews

A little disappointed

All I've seen are reviews describing how amazing this new album will be, given the sounds of the singles. Anyone out there have the opposite opinion? Anyone? I just don't know, man. I've never been one to knock a band for changing their sound from album to album. It's inevitable, and even necessary to surprise listeners and keep them on their toes, wondering what could be next. I think Lonerism was pretty different from Innerspeaker, in a hell of a good way. But the albums both shared this certain feeling that their songs would give me, a feeling that these new singles just don't give me. Am I the only one who just doesn't get that Tame Impala "fix" from these songs? They're kind of poppy and simplified, in a way that bores me in the middle of them. They sound like the perfect songs to be played from Apple headphones, in the ears of a middle aged woman on an elliptical at the gym. I tend to try to stay away from those types of songs...

This album will be amazing, like the other 2.

I don’t care what anyone else says… “over simplified pop blah blah”…. it’s called “change of pace”…. think of it as an “edition” to what will be a great discography. You may not like that they are taking a pop route or these songs "might not do it for you”, but thats the thing…. it does it for others and you won’t be able to be satisfied 100% of the time…. that’s life… move on rock purists!

These are finally crafted pop tunes, that really expand their sounds even further. Let It Happen isn’t even pop, and there’s no telling if the rest of the album is as pop as the official singles are either.
This will be a strong contender for AOTY. When this band first started, people were so quick to pan them as some sort of “flavor of the moment” psych revival band that would soon be on its way out as hype for the genre decreased… but Tame Impala has something different than the Foxygen’s and Temples of the world. One awesome psych rock debut, and a stunning psych pop Sophomore release, now Kevin keeps finding new ways to approach things and he’s modernizing his sounds even more a long the way. I’m happy they are receiving such attention. This album not be as immediate as its “edgier” siblings, but it serves a different purpose and that’s why it will be so great.

Uh....

I'm not sure there's a band I was more looking forward to releasing a new album then Tame Impala. After listening to these singles, gotta say I'm not sure I could be more dissapointed. I'm very suprised at all the positive reviews, but I think people will like anything just because of who the band is.

The amazing thing about Tame Imala was their psychedelic guitar riffs and perfect vocals. This sounds like some sort of "pop" music you'd expect from a million other bands-- not one with Impala's prior originality. Just disapointed is all...

Biography

Formed: 2007 in Perth, Australia

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The sound of spacy, guitar-heavy psychedelic pop has never really gone out of fashion since the Beatles brought it to the mainstream in the late '60s, with proponents like Pink Floyd and the Flaming Lips managing to make long careers out of mining its every seam. In the 2010s, there is no more popular psych pop group than Australia's Tame Impala. Kevin Parker (vocals/guitar) and Dominic Simper (bass) formed the band as 13-year-olds in Perth in 1999, sticking to bedroom recordings until 2007, when...
