When you start off a review with an assumption like this...

"MGMT happens to be one of those young bands that play music for the hell of it and ultimately write a few songs that end up being monster hits."

I guess it's easy to draw a conclusion like this...

"This album has separated the true fans from the radio pop posers and that was its goal."

I disagree big time.
Pop posers or not, fans are fans.....no offense, but a band should cherish whoever enjoys their music.

I'll definitely be giving it a listen after it comes out. I have to admit I really enjoy their pop side, though. "Electric Feel" is probably one of my all-time favorite songs. How weird/psychedelic are we talking here, like Embryonic? That could be cool, I guess.

Not that intense. There is definitely still pop, personally I think "It's Working" is just as catchy as kids after repeat listens. It just doesn't have the catchy keyboard line, but the melodies and musicianship throughout the song and album is really reminiscent of the 60's and 70's surf and psychedelic rock. Don't get me wrong, I love "Electric Feel" too, I just got blown out with it thanks to my friends.

Yeah, that song has definitely started to jump out at me more after my second and third listen.

Nice Review.
I guess I'm in the minority here, I like this album and not just because it's different.

Good album. Oracular Spectacular is better in my opinion but not by a whole lot. People who have already written this off as a poor release either A. Only enjoyed the singles off of the last album or B. Have yet to give it the proper amount of listens.

Imagine how embarrassing it'd be to be a true fan of this band . Ick.

This is a great review for a VERY polarizing band. Great work, Keagan.
