As an album it doesn't stand as good as its predecessors, but there are several incredible songs in here. 8/10.

Tame Impala > Everyone else.

They’re simply on another level. This album will go down as a modern classic.

From JulianR
I've always loved Lonerism, but when this came out, I was still in the "I grew up on Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin and know that hip-hop and pop are stupid" mindset. So I didn't really like it. Coming back to it after a few years, I can definitely enjoy it more, though its still no Lonerism (but then again, not much is). The synth instrumentation is quite enjoyable, and the rhythmic portion is pretty good for the most part. I find a bit of hip-hop influence, but mostly pop; however Kevin doesn't fully go pop and give it that annoying inhuman sheen that makes generic radio-pop so annoying to listen to. The melodies are pretty great as usual, songwriting has always been Kevin's strong suit, though a few of the songs do fall flat (past life). Overall it feels a little indulgent, but its a fun and carefree listen.

80/100 (Fairly Good)

Il fascino leggero del pop svolazzevole, una musica figlia dei Teenage Fanclub che ti ipnotizza e che ti fa ballare ma con gusto.

A glitzy drift through insecurity and loneliness that is held solid by well produced keyboards and synth.

I think I prefer this to Lonerism. It certainly relies more on the keyboards than its predecessor and is a little bit commercial.

What a fantastic album. And all the more impressive considering one guy did ALL this.
