Nice and listenable.

THIS IS NOT HIS MOST POPULAR SONG BUT WILL PROBABLY CHART THE HIGHEST OUT OF ALL HIS THINGS AND HIS MOST POPULAR SONG "SLEEPLESS" WILL BE LUCKY TO CHART NEXT YEAR IF EVER (BY WHICH TIME IT MIGHT ALMOST HAVE GOLD SALES).*

ok, I've gotten that out of the way. I still don't really get Flume. To me there's too much vapid & lifeless electronic music around at the moment that I just can't get into, and Flume is the leader of this movement. This song isn't even that catchy. There are some decent synth moments, but I don't get much out of this.

Edit: As a side note I've gotten more used to this and I actually kinda like it now.

*Edit: Due to hype with album release, it looks like "Sleepless" will chart this week finally.**

**Edit: No, complete my album shenanigans seem to have blocked it.***

***Edit: OK, another two months later, it's looking good to make it. Funnily enough I think Holdin On has surpassed it in popularity anyway, lol :P

What a random Top 50 entry, I must say that it's mostly cool.

Edit: It's his best for sure. 5 for me.

Sehr speziell anzuhörender Track des jungen Australiers Harley Streten, greift auf I Can't Turn You Loose von Otis Redding zurück...

mit knapp über 02:30 aber zu kurz geraten…aus dem kommenden selbstbetitelten Debütalbum, 3.75…
******
Agreed with Irelander. Very breezy track.

Over the past few weeks, this has grown on me, and has become such an awesome track. Solid production from Flume, and one of the best from his self titled LP.

Superb! 4.75*.

EDIT: Now a solid 5. 4.75* -> 5*.

OK after a while I have finally begun to enjoy this. The production is great. Just don't like the 'vocal' bits at all.

sehr nervig dieser verzerrte Sound, gibt nichts her
****
On the first listen I thought this was quite poor. I like its unique style now. However I find the song to be a bit short. 3*

EDIT: Getting better. 4*

Also der Refrain hat total Soul, nur atmosphärisch kommt da in 2:30 rein gar nichts rüber. Das bleibt mir alles zu beliebig.
***
Ok, aber schon zu kurz. 3*

Wow what a track! Love the distorted vocal samples and the synth production is a top effort. The 'climax' near the end is the perfect conclusion to the song. Even with bigger chart hits under his belt now, this will still be remembered as one of his classics imo. Will go down as an Aussie electronic classic. It was rad live, probably Flume's best performance that night I saw him live, after "Smoke & Retribution" of course.

There is something cool about this and I can't put my finger on it; none of this is what I would usually like. All the things work together though.
****
I don't mind this; nice to see him get some commercial success.

Sleepless is still way better, though.

▒ Het zal wel weer aan mij liggen hoor !!! Maar deze plaat uit begin oktober 2012 vind ik persoonlijk eigenlijk gewoon ø, dus 3 sterren waardig !!! Begrijp alleen niet waarom Nederland achterop moet lopen met deze inmiddels 'oude' plaat van de nu inmiddels 21 jarige Australische producer uit Sydney: "Harley Streten", alias "Flume" ??? Eigenlijk belachelijk en schandalig ☺!!!
*****
Goed nummer! klinkt gewoon lekker!
****
Klinkt aardig.
**
Nee hoor, Snormobiel, het ligt zeker niet aan jou! Ik vind dit ook niet zo'n geslaagde plaat; sterker nog, ik vind hem op momenten behoorlijk irritant. Dit hoeft van mij niet zo nodig een hit te worden.
***
Doet me een beetje denken aan de Isley Brothers maar dan bombastischer. Best een aardige plaat, maar ik word er ook niet echt warm van.
***
I don't mind it but I don't think it's chart worthy.

Peaked at #65 on my personal chart.

60

Nichts, das ich mir ein weiteres Mal anhören müsste.

Das sowas in die Charts mancher Länder schafft ist schon ein Wunder. Das klingt stellenweise richtig nach Musik die nur durch Drogen angenehmer oder gar psychedelischer gestaltet wird.
***
Ok, aber nichts was auf meine Playlist kommt
****
It's interesting, and it's cool, but Sleepless is much better.
*****
starker titel!
*****
What a great introduction to the awesomeness of Flume. This is an addictive track.
***
Very uninteresting. 2.5 - 3.
******
Don't understand the hype. Certainly he is talented but I don't understand how he has eight ARIA nominations.

Edit: Starting to like it more now. 3--->5

Edit 2: Now this is awesome. 5 ---> 6

Fantastic song, I love it. I've overplayed this a little bit but it's still a classic.
*****
...seeehr speziell und gewöhnungsbedürftig mit dem knallharten Geklappe, den düsteren Klängen und der schreienden Stimme - cooles Arrangement, crazy aber es gefällt mir....
****
It's quite good but I don't love it. It's very catchy and addictive though, just slightly uninteresting. Good to see it had a long chart run though. I prefer "Drop the Game" to this though.
*****
Ça fonctionne pas mal.
****
Avec parcimonie, éventuellement.
******
Good
