Having made two of the finest albums to be released in the last decade in 'Innerspeaker' and 'Lonerism', Tame Impala are threatening to turn themselves into a pastiche of pretty much what everybody else is doing if early teasers from this album are to be believed. Synths have replaced guitars and production values are at times influenced solely by 'Bouncing Off the Satellites' era the B52's. Still, everyone likes the '80's so this could be the future-retro pop album that propels Kevin Parker to superstardom whilst fans of his earlier Beatlesey psych moves weep into their kaftans. Waiting for the whole thing before passing judgement could be a good option at this stage. Certainly whatever emerges will be mighty tuneful.
