Is it wrong that I love this album so much, it’s probably my favourite Tame Impala album?
There’s a good chance I’m being too over-excited, as this is the first Tame Impala album in ages. So many great songs, but how would I rank them all?
You can check out some of my other lists below:
12 – Glimmer
I don’t mind this interlude at all, but since it’s only a simple interlude it sort of has to come last by default.
11 – On Track
This will definitely be my most controversial pick of the bunch, as I know a lot of Tame Impala fans love this one.
I’ve always found this track to be a bit bland and boring, and every time I listen to it it takes every fibre of my being not to skip it.
10 – One More Hour
A fairly nice track, albeit a bit long-winded. The annoying thing about this is that I was expecting a grand finale, and although this did try to inject some energy and grandeur, it doesn’t really stand out as a great final track.
9 – Instant Destiny
A good track that I like listening to, but this is bear-minimum Tame Impala as far as I’m concerned.
8 – Borderline
Blasphemy they cry!
I do really like this track, and I’m not surprised it’s popular – it already has 100 million Spotify plays for goodness sake, I just think the other tracks are better.
7 – Tomorrow’s Dust
A lovely laid-back song that beautifully contrasts some of the crazy synthetic sounds of the rest of the album.
6 – Posthumous Forgiveness
A song that gets better with every listen, and when you find out the true meaning of the song with Kevin and his father, it almost makes this a better track.
5 – It Might Be Time
This is the sort of bold and brazen pop that I usually can’t bear to listen to, but somehow it just works on the album.
4 – Lost In Yesterday
Straight away, the kick-ass bassline is what makes this song so amazing. That bass alone is enough to put it in the top 4.
3 – Breathe Deeper
Similarly to “Posthumous Forgiveness”, this is a track that gets better with every listen, and to be honest if I keep listening to it I might even consider it to be the best on “The Slow Rush” at some point in the near future.
2 – One More Year
The opening track of the album is instantly memorable and iconic, and it feels like chilling out in the summer sun but in the form of a cracking tune.
1 – Is It True
Ever since I first heard this record, I knew “Is It True” was the best of the bunch. It just has a groove that really gets me going, and the nonchalant choruses perfectly capture the tone of the entire album.
Aaand that’s my list. No “All-Time Greats” on this one, but I’m sure in time my opinion will change on that. Until then, check out some of my latest blog posts:
“Reality” is … fine. I’ve never really been a huge fan of this album, and to be honest my opinion barely changed with a couple of re-listens. There are definitely some great ones on here, don’t get me wrong, but there are just too many bland fillers for my liking. How would I rank thisContinue reading ““Reality” Songs Ranked”
Season 1 of ATLA already did a fantastic job of establishing the characters and setting up the unique world within the story, so it seems impossible that each season managed to be better than the last. “Avatar: The Last Airbender” really comes into its own in Season 2 – it’s a lot less happy-go-lucky andContinue reading “Avatar: The Last Airbender – Season 2 (Earth) Episodes Ranked and Reviewed”
This album was the start of Bowie’s twilight years – the subject matter had become quite moody and melancholic, and somehow you get the feeling that Bowie knew his time was up on this planet. Does that make this album dreary and boring? Absolutely not. This is a huge breath of fresh air after aContinue reading ““Heathen” Songs Ranked”
