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:
Super Mario Galaxy – 10 Best (& Worst) Stars
Super Mario Galaxy is easily one of my favourite games of all time, and I’ve already ranked each galaxy, but that doesn’t tell the whole story – I’m going to pick my 10 favourite (and least favourite) stars / levels. As an added challenge, I’m not going to pick any of the purple coin levels.…

Here it is ladies and gentlemen – this is where The Office became one of the best comedy shows of all time. Rarely has a leap in quality between seasons been so enormous! Before I rank every episode, here are a few of my related blog posts: 22 – Christmas Party Rating: C A fan-favourite…
Demon Slayer – Entertainment Arc Episodes Ranked
I was eager for more Demon Slayer action after the excellent Mugen Train arc, but luckily I didn’t have to wait for long – the Entertainment Arc dropped not long ago, and my jaw dropped with it. This show just keeps getting better and better, and a lot of these episodes were phenomenal. How would…
