Esto es Nueva Psicodelia, no algo que parece "viejo".
For moments on this album you are not on earth. What Tame Impala is able to do here is almost recreate rock, mixing it with the technology of modern day better than anyone in recent memory. This acid trip of a album proves that not all sound has yet been discovered (and mixed, remixed and distorted even more). Even though it has its inconsistencies, Lonerism displays what's it like to be in a full 60's psychedelic state while somehow being full on progressive.
Picks: Apocalypse Dreams / Why Won't They Talk to Me.
Fav Tracks: Nothing That Happened So Far Has Been Anything We Could Control, Why Won't They Talk To Me?, Feels Like We Only Go Backwards, Elephant, Mind Mischief, Endors Toi, Apocalypse Dreams
This album shows nothing but improvement for Tame Impala. Really colourful sounds in here as well as some well thought out lyrics. These guys do Psych revival right.

I can't say I understand why this album is already considered a classic; I thought it was quite overrated--
But still had a few really good tracks, but kinda boring for the most part.
This is a modern classic, this record set my world on fire. I had no idea a masterpiece could be less than a minute long (She Just Won't Believe Me).
" It feels like I only go backwards, baby "
Tame Impala simply made something very special with this album. This is the perfect neo-psychedelic rock album. ++ Very good in live performance.
This is how to make a modern day psychedelic rock album. As an album it is wonderfully put together, if only lacking a true masterpiece, hence why I did not give it a perfect score. But that should not stop anyone from hearing what might have been the best album of 2012.
I'm glad that there is still some cool psychedelic rock out there. The fact that Kevin Parker's voice sounds like John Lennon and in some cases Julian Lennon is great too.
Too good, seriously. It's pretty much a perfectly put together album--every melody, rhythm, breakdown, and vocal feels like it's exactly where it should be, and even if Lonerism doesn't necessarily have a song that will go down as one of the decade's best, as an album I think it will rest solidly in the top 5. This definitely belongs in the Pantheon.
good guitars, nice harmonies but melodies are pretty weak, not a bad album but very overrated
It's good. Really good. But for me it doesn't have the "great song after great song" feel. It is great uplifting music, maybe not 100% me though
Great songs, sung by Lennon's Walrus.
Epic trip into your earholes.
