You know what's great about this album? It completely blows away "Innerspeaker" which is one of my favorite albums of the last 5 years.

Simply amazing and I hope the non pirates can get their hands on this soon.

Believe you me, I've been tempted to download this since I paid for it 7 days ago. But alas, I'm stubborn!

Yeah, I bought the vinyl today even though I allegedly have a CD on the way. Hopefully there's a download card in there.

Sorry, Tourista.

Finally got around to a listen. Damn strong album, as everyone has said. It certainly gains momentum as it progresses - Elephant and Sun's Coming Up are two of the best tracks I've heard all year.

The only thing that lets this album down in any significant way is Be Above It. I simply don't understand its placement on the record, and, although I don't want to sound hyperbolic, frankly I think it borders on atrocious. They could easily have just left it off the album entirely.

Be Above It is the most controversial song on the album for sure. I still think it serves it's purpose as a good intro track, but I agree that it's probably the weakest track in the album.

I really like it as an intro. In fact, shave a minute off of it and I'd say I love it.

The album's only flaw is that She Just Won't Believe Me isn't long enough.

Well naturally my CD showed up from Rough Trade today since I bought the vinyl.

It's signed, which is a nice bonus.

Now Ed Droste-approved.

Are Tame Impala on the verge of something huge?

My favourite thing about all this goodwill is that Kevin Parker (who is Tame Impala, the other dudes are only there because he can't play all the music live) does not give a fuck. In his eyes Tame Impala are just one of a bunch of bands from the Perth music scene among Pond, Mink Mussel Creek and others. He's not fazed at all, he just writes the music he wants to.

Just found out my friend from Perth who lives in L.A. is hosting a party for the band when they come into town next month.


Hopefully will score tix to show as well.
