4. The Slow Rush (2020)

after “currents”, expectations were pretty high…then parker was naturally cool…here he was more tryin; this is duran duran and game theory goin slightly, slower tempo, disco; i wanted to be, like “currents”, taken away; instead, i found myself under the globe, dancin the night away, wonderin if was slow or fast, and 4 songs away from “dancing queen”; instead of swirling us toward neptune, we drowned in the sea of bass and keyboard; then there’s the melodees, so hard to compete with the high bar set…still, considering the competition, it’s worth a look, but the hard markers will ponder what could have been, once the nyquil wore off, and the silver ladies in the cages called it a nite..but fear not, when only top shelf will suffice, and you want to leave this place, play “currents..”

3. Innerspeaker (2010)

“If you like Tame Impala, then you like Tame Impala. And you’re cool. And maybe a bit hipster… so you probably have a record player… like I do… so you should get this on vinyl… because it sounds amazing!

All joking aside, this is a terrific 2 LP vinyl album and a worthy addition to our vinyl library collection. And picked it up at a great price: $14.90 with Free Prime shipping. Win Win.”

2. Lonerism (2012)

“After Tame Impala’s debut album Innerspeaker, I couldn’t wait to hear what Kevin Parker would come up with next. Lonerism definitely does not disappoint, and neither does this vinyl pressing. If you’re looking for a modern day version of The Beatles, this record is for you! The 2xLP comes in a gatefold style and comes in sturdy jacket. The shipping was fast and there was no damage to the records when it arrived. I also love the back cover showing Kevin Parker’s impressive home studio. Don’t miss your chance to own one of the greatest modern day psychedelic rock albums!”

1. Currents (2015)

Currents reeks of honesty, despite what Parker says on Love/Paranoia. It’s readily apparent that the album explores change, loss, and acceptance, but what makes Currents such a fantastic album is that the main theme, analysis of change and what it really means, is actualized on a level that’s arguably more fulfilling and honest than anything off of Innerspeaker and Lonerism. This is most evidenced by the closing track, “New Person, Same Old Mistakes,” where he remarks that “maybe this story ain’t so different from the rest.” From the song’s explicit title to the back and forth between narrators in the chorus, the track lives and breathes self-awareness.”
