“The Slow Rush” Songs Ranked

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:

My Favourite Lyric On Every Bowie Song

As a songwriter, I’m always fascinated by the lyrical landscapes painted by my favourite artists. I believe the greatest lyricist in music history, the man capable of taking the listener on a captivating journey almost every time without fail, to be none other than David Bowie. Since this isn’t like my usual rankings, I’ll just…

“Favourite Worst Nightmare” – Songs Ranked

Some people have this as their favourite Arctic Monkeys album, and while I don’t agree with that sentiment “Favourite Worst Nightmare” is easily one of their best. It has all the same energy as their debut, with some more nuanced and mature songwriting on top. How would I rank every track? Before we begin, you…
