Album Review

In July of 2009, a year after MGMT broke out with Oracular Spectacular and became a household name for hipsters, Cantora Records re-released the duo's 2005 EP, Time to Pretend. Remastered by Greg Calibi, the disc includes the original versions of the singles "Kids" and "Time to Pretend," along with four tracks that didn't make the full-length. It's interesting to hear the hits before Dave Fridmann got his mitts on them and turned them from homemade laptop electro jams into explosive pop, and the other songs, "Boogie Down," "Destrokk," "Love Always Remains," and "Indie Rokkers" are pretty good, even if they aren't as huge as the cuts on Oracular Spectacular.

Excellent

MGMT are truly one of the best bands around at the moment. Their sound is much more original than many of the more generic indie bands out there. This EP is excellent, particularly because it contains a much better version of Kids than is found on their actual album. It is worth it for this better version alone

Fantastically Wonderful

Their sound ranges from classic melodic to upbeat trancy, a fantastically out of the ordinary band I recommend to anyone.

I must say...

that i love this EP. The best song is definitely Love Always Remains, brilliant song. Also i do rather like Boogie Down. : )

MGMT first formed in 2002, during Ben Goldwasser and Andrew Van Wyngarden's freshman year as art students at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. The band was initially known as the Management, and its shows consisted...
