Tame Impala - Currents
Jun 3, 2019

While it's mighty impressive that Tame Impala can switch up their sound this radically without loosing the core essence of the band, I'm not always head over heels about the psychedelic balladry of Currents.
The first leg of the record is fantastic, especially cuts like Eventually and The Moment. Once we hit fan favourite The Less I Know The Better things start to stagnate however. I don't really care for the song personally, it's one of the less interesting in the tracklist. For track 8, 10 and 11, they all feel somewhat redundant I guess. They don't offer much new in terms of sound, and their not written any better than the cuts prior, so they're left as the weakest part of the record for me.
Overall it's a pretty good record, great at times, packing some real emotional punch. But I can't say I don't miss their psych rock days.

Yeah, exactly how I feel about this. Lonerism feels much more interesting.
