The only bad song from a good album...
Not sure why this track made this on the "air" on RP, when there are 11 better tracks on the album.  Time to head to LRC....
Eewwww.  Artificial drums?  On RP?
sucks abyssmal
I'd like to add a new rating for "Annoying."
...this is pretty cool!..

Digging this pretty hardcore right now. Zep's Dazed and Confused followed by this is a couple of really good "wake the fu(k up and go to work" songs. It's hard to fantasize about goon back to bed when I'm jammin like this. ITs work stops for no holiday, even Christmas.
 
Sorry but in comparison to D&C this is pants of the highest degree!
This is dire. Something worthy of the Beatles.

..has got a CCCP sound to the rolling synths.."Made in Russia"..or somesuch..
Agree with some others here. If this actually was John Lennon (and the singer of Tame Impala sounds more and more like him as time passes), people would be giving it 7s to 10s for inventiveness. Thom Yorke would also get away with it. I tend to give this a low rating, as I would comparable unlistenable stuff from the aforementioned two gentlemen. But just for balance I will rate this one rather high.

me too.  buncha uncultured yeast spores commenting below.
Stop it! {#Wall}
When it started, I thought the guy was repeatedly whispering "Got a big butt".
Don't love it. But how many haters would be bouncing in their seats if this were RadioHead? Cuz there's nary a hair's diff from Yorke's drivel. Except this has more hook, structure, & rhythm. :-p
Pretty
Shitty
Ditty.
Quite possibly the worst band that I have ever seen live!
And whats with the name? Does anybody like the thought of a tame Impala?
More like lame Impala. 
Myself and my roomate used to have a casette tape with sappy crap and other songs girls like on one side and the other side was thrash and metal and hardcore etc. We called it the get em in and get em out tape, as the next day you could just flip it over and hit play. might be good for that.

No , Bill, this is definetly not your style!
First time on radio paradise that I rush for the volume or the psd button. Most annoying, period.
Harsh, and not in a good way. 3.8 rating says it all, and that's 2.8 higher than my vote.
I don't comment often, but had to log in to say this is really awful.

So...not the Flaming Lips. Got-cher. 

Yeah, I hear the "gotta big butt" thing too.

PS

Bill is playing this to put a "counter-point" (Kontra-Punkt) for all the good stuff

to come next! What else could be his motivation...?


WTF
different
