Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.6/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

Very solid album. Really easy to listen to. Not quite as good as Lonerism but still a very good album. My highlights are It Is Not Meant To Be, Solitude Is Bliss and Desire Be, Desire Go. Solitude Is Bliss also contains one of my favourite lyrics of all time - "There's a party in my head, and no one else is invited".

A great album. Some say "lo-fi", but in fact this sounds unreal through a good stereo, and the apparent raw, murky sound becomes surprisingly clear when in the right headspace. Innerspeaker is the most cohesive when compared to all Tame Impala albums. IMO Lonerism collectively is equally as brilliant but doesn't have the cohesiveness. If anything this suffers from being a debut album (their EP aside) but it shows the music was already highly evolved (Parker and co. formed back in 2005) and very genuine. Easy to accuse this of sounding like it was a throwback to the psych rock of the 60s/early 70s, but in fact I believe this is very fresh and original. No doubt draws from some great influences of that era, but to me this is like a rebirth of psych rock.

This album demonstrates that the group knew their style right from the start and have created and grew on that sound ever since. This is the starting point and is a very good first record but does fall short compared to their later work. There are several great songs that have some amazing guitar moments which creates a great prog rock song. However, some of the tracks do lack substance and feel a little bit empty. I think this is due to inexperience and it is an issue they resolve on later releases. Overall, a great modern prog rock records that is well worth a listen to see the origins of an artist.

Fairly good first effort, I'd say. It's a bit watered down most of the time though. The Bold Arrow of Time and I Don't Really Mind were the two that really stood out to me.

Loved this album with my first listen and to this day, love it even more! When I see comments about Tame Impala albums, this one is the least talked about, yet for me hands down, it's the best one.

This is too complex for my brain, but I think I am as close as I will be to understanding it. Kevin Parker managed to make a full album. And by that I mean it doesn't lack anything, listening to this album non-stop is such an overwhelming experience. 8.8/10.

Not as good as their two later albums, but still a worthwhile listen. Perhaps it will grow on me.

My favorite Tame Impala album. Maybe not the best production but every song is great.
