10 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

MGMT’s full-length debut is a densely layered, proudly psychedelic delight. The songs are strong enough to stand up to the bold (mostly synthesised) aural choices made by producer Dave Fridmann (of Flaming Lips fame). Fridmann’s skillful touch, spot-on sequencing and a distinctive MGMT sparkle help tie together these stylistic adventures. This colourful debut is a dazzling trip through 40 years of psychedelic pop.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

First review, but had to for this one

After years on iTunes, this is the first time I've been moved to review an album. The album is just what it says it is - a spectacular array or layers of sound. If you've only heard Electric Feel or Kids, try checking out The Youth, The Handshake or Weekend Wars as well, each of which have a different, less electronic sound to them, but still bring something new to the table each time you listen. In a year of lackluster albums (to this point), Oracular Spectacular is easily the best out there, and it's a shame that the full release won't happen until 2008.

Is It Possible to Hear Greater Music?


NO.

Unfortunately for other artists, MGMT has stolen the hearts of all people who know what good music is. I am blown away by the complexity and utter awesomeness of their songs. Electric Feel? – try electric ingenuity. Love Always Remains? - Completely epic. Kids? - most played song on my itunes. Does anyone else head bob to the music in your head hours after listening? Does anyone else bow down to the Gods of music? Does anyone else just love the words “Oracular Spectacular?” That is proof enough that MGMT might just be the best band alive. If I could rate it on my own scale of one to five stars I would give it * * * * * * * * * * * (that’s eleven stars by the way). I can die and rest in peace now, knowing that good music truly does exist.
