||Where to begin?|
MGMT gained fame when their album Oracular Spectacular dropped. The hooky synth-lines and danceable beats of that album made for a good collection of songs that many could enjoy. But with Congratulations, MGMT focused on creating a solid entire album, rather than stringing together radio-ready singles on a CD. Does it work? I think so, but those who fell in love with MGMT for the hooks and the pop sensibilities might be let down. This album will cater to those who like a little experimentation with their songs. As far as music, if new alternative rock were mixed with, dare I say, progressive/acid rock and a dash of 60's Motown, the result would probably be this album. It still sounds like MGMT, but perhaps they grew up. A solid effort, but if you're not sure, the band is (at the time of this writing) allowing for fans to stream the entire album on their website. Check it there before purchasing, but I do recommend making the purchase. 4/5

...that a band as their whole life to write their 1st LP, then only months to write their 2nd? well, that certainly seems to be the case here. but i guess this really isn't their 2nd LP officially, but, Congratulations, it certainly has sophmore jinx written all over it. so, the lead off track is not bad, but the rest is somewhat forgetable atmospheric rock, in the vein of The Flaming Lips, just not anywhere as good unfortunately. Its releases like this where you appreciate being to buy single tracks. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I'm guessing these guys will come up with something more memorable next time around, especially since they had that one killer tune from last year.

This was somewhat expected...following up on some of their jams was gonna be tough seeing that "Electric Feel", "Kids" and some of others were written and perfected over 5 years before their album finally dropped into the mainstream scene. Not one feel good jam on this whole album....They should drop their Climbing New Lows album. Would have had a better effect in today's market.

As said already, it's definitely different from the previous album, but Congratulations is a good album. It's a different groove, but I think it's great to hear change in bands. Progression.
