Customer Reviews

Exactly what they said it would be....

Being a lover of MGMT I will always have a softspot for whatever they produce as they were, to me, the sound of 2008. Now it seems to have taken a different direction, one which I hope you will try to appreciate. Trying their best to break away from the pop scene they have managed to produce something almost deserving its own genre. Begining with the boppy but strangely paced "it's working," and "Song for Dan Treacy" to the eerie "Someones missing," that begins with weird sonified voices leading to climax of a drumming march. On to the first single released, "Flash Delirium," which does not waste time in getting right down to the pounding chorus' MGMT are known for which then finishes climactically in a culmonation of rip roaring fast beats and lyrics almost impossible to differentiate from one another."I found a whistle," is the most recognisable I find and anyone knows they're first album well will hear the same anthemic undertones heard in there very under rated song "Pieces of what." Moving on to "Siberian Breaks." Some might find, sitting back and relaxing with this song on, that this is the definition of "flake out music." Long and unending with a meloncholy of marching drum beats to blues guitars. "Brian Eno" helps to mix things up a bit with a retro rock 'n' roll enthuisiasm not heard on the pop scene for some time now while "Lady Dada's," haunting instrumental will have you wonder what these guys were doing as it is quite the strange piece seeming totally out of place on an album such as this. Finishing with the albums title song "Congradulations," slowing things down a bit with it's steady beat and solemn vocals that almost convey the bands sadness to be finishing this project after all this time. Personally I love this album because it cannot simply described, you have to form your own opinion of it. At a glance many might dismiss this strangly psychedelic portion of music but I beg you to have patience, it is something worth experimenting with. Check out "Flash Delirium" and "I found a whistle" for a quick fix but I hope you delve deeper into the abyssal minds that are MGMT.

its a grower

on first listen i thought this was career suicide by MGMT.....but given a chance this album will certainly grow on u

nothing special

there's no songs on thos album that stood out as much as the songs on the first. it might be just that i have to listen to it a bit more, but on the last one i could pick out which ones were going to be a success from the start

Biography

Formed: 2002 in Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Finding an unlikely middle point between Suicide's hostile, proto-electro punk art noise and the sardonic, pop-friendly sound of the Flaming Lips, MGMT started as electroclash musical terrorists but quickly grew into an eclectic, brainy pop group with psychedelic overtones. 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...
