    Crystallised, in particular, kicks into a deeply satisfying psych-rock crunch halfway through - a reverb-heavy, robust foil for Prochet's feathery voice. But for much of the unfocused second half of the album, their sounds stray into Stereolab-lite.

Kevin Parker's main project Tame Impala got all of the attention last year, but this is his album that should have been getting the attention. It is a much stronger album, very experimental, with incredible cutting guitar riffs and beautifully brooding synths. The weird noises, the buzzes and the laser sounds fit better with this particular sound than they do on Lonerism. Beatles influences are still present, but don't dominate the record as they did on Lonerism, personally I hear more of a Radiohead influence than a Beatles influence here. I also prefer Melody Prochet's singing to Kevin Parker's but that is all personal preference as both are incredible vocalists. I think this is a much better realized album then Lonerism and is Kevin Parker's best work to date. Incredible album, fans of Tame Impala, Psychedelia and Indie Rock should love this album. 10/10, it's as perfect as an album can get! Full Review »
