I liked all three of Tame Impala's previous albums. This is the first one I've loved.

2.5 averagededex | February 14th 20

As if The Bee Gees were reincarnated in the 2020s and they asked Daft Punk to produce their comeback album. It's a slick hour of music, that's for sure, but, even compared to how mixed Currents was received (at least on here), it lacks these era-defining bangers that were Let It Happen and The Less I Know the Better. If you want to go full pop, make sure you have banger songs with anthemic choruses. Some tracks almost accomplish this (Lost in Yesterday, It Might Be Time, the first half of One More Hour), but lack that 'ooomf yeah gon shake tha fatass' factor that made the two aforementioned tracks the anthems they are now. It's striking how safe and monotonous this is given how the other truly interesting track, Posthumous Forgiveness, stands out much more because of its lyrical content rather than how good it is musically. In all honesty, it might be the perfect album for your next chill party: it's fashionable and goes well in the background. However, when you start truly paying attention, you realize it's mostly void of any density: the songs start sliding into one giant bowl of effects that sound good but always fail to embark you on Kevin's journey. You ever tried throwing gum at a wall? It sticks. This album doesn't. 2.7

4.2 excellentBenjamin Kuettel STAFF | February 12th 20

A bit safe and monotonous, but a blissed out psychpop album and a fitting sequel to Currents. The middle run of songs are some of the best Parker recorded to date and there is a nice absence of filler or underdeveloped ideas. The production is of course excellent as well.

4.5 superbTheMoonchild | February 9th 20

The Slow Rush can be compared to Ghost's Prequelle in a lot of different ways.rBoth albums are from one-man projects whose first few albums have an indie-cult appeal. They're both from artists who have that appeal but aspire for something bigger, and overall, they're the albums where both artists take that to its logical extreme.rFrom the opening vocal/synth sample that opens the album to the menlancholy fade-out, The Slow Rush is just absolutely fantastic, euphoric and danceable bliss.

3.0 goodDeadwing2112 | February 19th 20

Every cut recorded on The Slow Rush is fully capable of being licensed out to the mad men of the world responsible for selling hatchbacks and mini vans. The intriguing promise presented by Innerspeaker and Lonerism is dead.

Bump

3.5 greatElevon | February 15th 20

Not usually a fan of psych rock/pop but the production on this album is absurdly good

Bump

3.5 greatSowingSeason STAFF | February 15th 20

The peaks are scattered throughout bits and pieces of every song rather than in a specific set of identifiable tracks. The whole thing just flows together like one wondrous experience.

4.0 excellentChino smoking it up! | February 14th 20

It might be Time and One more Our are my faves. Bad call for a Valentine's day album though. Very detailed and very DaftPunkish. I'm gonna set at 3.5 but still don't know if its growing like a mofo or dropping like another. Edit - growing like a mofo.

4.5 superbChardonnay | February 13th 20

dude really just dropped an album that sounds like AC/DC, justice and the Isley brothers had a baby and gave it 4 tabs of acid

Bump

4.0 excellentFlashmobba | February 10th 20

excellent album, much more realized than Currents and almost as good as Lonerism. Keep an ear out for Tomorrow's Dust, Breathe Deeper and One More Year
