Editorial Reviews

Kevin Parker (vocals/guitar) and Dominic Simper (bass) formed Tame Impala as 13-year-olds in Perth in 1999, sticking to bedroom recordings until 2007, when Jay Watson joined them on drums and backing vocals. Their sound was pure late '60s, but wasn't the sound of any specific band from the era. They were as likely to be channeling the Nazz as the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Cocooned away inside walls of psychedelic fuzz in Western Australia they re-created their preferred period one song at a time with the aid of gear and production techniques that sounded like they hadn't been dusted off since 1968.

Format: Audio CD
Tame Impala's previous album, 2010's superb 'Innerspeaker--as original and forward-thinking as it was compared to most modern psychedelic albums--was very reminiscent of '66-'67-era Beatles, if the Beatles of that time had time-traveled to the present and listened to massive amounts of Dungen's Swedish space-rock before recording their next album, making use of modern studio wizardry. But, while Kevin Parker's voice still sounds a lot like Lennon's (and probably always will), 'Lonerism' is a giant step forward in the evolution of their sound, seemingly influenced as much by the mid-70's, electronic-based interstellar sounds of bands like Tangerine Dream and Italy's Sensations' Fix as the Beatles this time around, while at the same time sounding utterly fresh and unique.

Of course, Parker's ear for infectious pop melodies still recalls Lennon and McCartney circa 'Revolver,' as do most melody-centric psych bands worth their weight in salt. But 'Lonerism' features synthesizers playing as integral of a role as the walls of fuzzed-out guitars, and this adds a whole new dimension to their sound (or maybe I should say "his" sound, as Parker once again handles all songwriting, instrumental, and vocal duties). The spaces between riffs are taken advantage of as well, with ethereal atmospherics and intertwining melodies filling those gaps, and when combined with the virtual myriad of musical styles and influences contained within, results in one of the most ambitious, absorbing--at times even blissful--albums I've heard in recent memory.

Music is def 5 stars for me, one of the best album in this year. However vinyl is in really cheap/poor quality.
The first copy I got has multiple dents on the disk one so I returned it and got a replacement one.
The 2nd copy also has dents here and there.

If you love this album so much and insist to get vinyl version, this is what I can share with you:
1. It has 2 LPs in GATEFOLD jacket. I love gatefold.
2. It has cheap white inner paper sleeve may cause damage to the vinyl. I hate paper inner sleeve.
3. Both copy I got are warped slightly and both have dents here and there.
4. VERY bad pressing! Not quiet and not flat. Ticks and pops!
5. I don't feel sound quality is any better then digital one.
6. There is another version vinyl on the market. Google: Lonerism Limited Deluxe Edition Blue Vinyl + 7″. It's much more expensive but maybe it has better quality.
I don't own that one so I can't compare. But it's hard to get any worse then this one.
7. It comes with mp3 download card

Would I recommend the music to friends?? YES! I love love this album! It's my morning commute soundtrack.
Would I recommend the vinyl version to friends? NO! I don't want my friends to hate me.

Basically, my caption sums up what I wanted to say as the other reviews here have covered this new Tame Impala album very nicely. But to expand on that, I first heard Tame Impala's "Runway Houses City Clouds" (from "Innerspeaker") on an internet psychedelic station and the airy Beatlesque vocal work in that simply blew me away. I ended up getting that album and was not disappointed with this band's extremely vintage psychedelic vibe via/John Lennon-style vocals so began wondering what they could come up with next. Well, they've answered in spades with Lonerism, an album that lives up to the promise of Innerspeaker and once again brings that Lennon/Beatles influence into the 21st century like no one else I know of. At the moment, the track that really stands out for me (and sounds like a great choice for a single) is "Apocalypse Dreams", but the same level of terrific melodic songwriting & production is also heard throughout the album - it's like this is one of those albums where you'll find yourself having different favorites over a period of time. So far, I've been listening to this via streaming audio but my purchase of the physical CD is forthcoming, just like with Innerspeaker. In closing, I think what impresses me most about Tame Impala is this: I'm not much of a fan/listener of any current music trends or present day artists but this band and their two albums is one glowing exception to that.

I can't stop listening over & over to this album--something I haven't done in a LONG time! Each time I do play it, I like it even more. This music is melodious, dreamy, yet urgent & 'hardcore' in its own way. Kevin Parker is no 'throwback to 60s acid rock,' but I AM reminded of super-early Pink Floyd (only better) when I hear certain of his riffs, as well as the Moody Blues, King Crimson & lots of other acid-rock bands I was too spaced to catch the names of at the time.
Parker's lyrics perfectly match his melodies. He tells you just enough of 'the story' so that you, the listener, can fill in the rest from your own experiences. Then, it becomes YOUR song, too. Sometimes, I just ache as I listen to this album--
it is cathartic as heck to know another person has been to these secret places. You realize that it isn't just you. Others have felt these intense emotions, too. It's part of life.
Kevin Parker, aka Tame Impala, is one brave soul & one wildly talented musician! He lets us into his mysterious world fully. I'm 61 years old & I LOVE rock. Still, the last Stones album I ever bought was 'Exile On Main Street.' You just have to move on. How else do you grow? I have always listened to all kinds of music, & I am thrilled that I stumbled onto Tame Impala. It's just a great album that flows perfectly from song to song, taking you for a glorious ride on stacked harmonies within beautiful melodies & deep lyrics. I think everyone should buy this album & play it over & over. You'll love it, too!
